The Snob has been pressed and harried all day from her two other jobs. Alas, I’m not free right now to write what I want about the anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination. I have a lot I want to say, but can’t say it because I have to go cover the news of the day. But check back later (or at worst … tomorrow) and I’ll update the site with my views on it.
Teaser short version of it: I think it’s time for an upgrade in the Civil Rights Movement. Not only in King’s honor but because our methods of struggle are woefully outdated. King made the blueprint but little has been done to elaborate on it. An old fashioned march doesn’t work the way that it used to and we have grown stagnant. But ooh! That’s too much! Gotta cram all that emotion back in after I finish hearing a politician lie to me and the city of St. Louis all right in our faces.
Yours in blackness,
