Equally Separate

Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church

The irony of separate but equal monuments is only lost on idiots


This "compromise" was a way to keep the battle flag flying near the South Carolina state capitol. Not ironically the monument's flag stayed proudly up while the capitol's were respectfully lowered.


The South Carolina Monument Compromise of 2000


April 4, 1968 Robert F. Kennedy


Ladies and Gentlemen,

I'm only going to talk to you just for a minute or so this evening, because I have some -- some very sad news for all of you -- Could you lower those signs, please? -- I have some very sad news for all of you, and, I think, sad news for all of our fellow citizens, and people who love peace all over the world; and that is that Martin Luther King was shot and was killed tonight in Memphis, Tennessee.
