Except now - FIFTY FUCKIN' YEARS LATER - instead of things getting better, the police are more militarized, have even scarier weapons and are using tear gas instead of fire hoses (actually, I'm pretty sure they used tear gas back then as well). I am angry, heartbroken and extremely ashamed of my country.

There can be no justice without peace and there can be no peace without justice. - Dr. Martin Luther King, December 14, 1967
