NEGATED BY THE WINNER OF THE BATTLE OF 1968.

WE ARE NOW, NEAR THE END OF 1969, FACING A GOVERNMENT AND AN ADMINISTRATION THAT IS MORE HOSTILE TOWARD OUR ASPIRATIONS THAN ANY OTHER IN THE RECENT PAST.

THAT IS NOT TO SAY, HOWEVER, THAT THE TWO ADMINISTRATION THAT PRECEDED IT WERE MEASURABLE BETTER IN ALL RESPECTS.

THE KENNEDY YEARS, BRIGHT WITH PROMISE, GAVE US STATEMENTS ABOUT ENDING DISCRIMINATION WITH THE STROKE OF A PEN THAT COULD NOT BE FOUND WHILE THE JOHNSON ERA GAVE US FURTHER INVOLVEMENT IN A SENSELESS WAR THAT NOT ONLY RAPES THE COUNTRY OF ITS YOUND MANHOOD - AND THE BLACK COMMUNITY MORE NEARLY SO - BUT ALSO PULLED THE BEST MINDS AND ENERGIES OF THE GOVERNMENT INTO PROSECUTING A WAR AGAINST THE BEST INSTINCTS WE WERE ALL TAUGHT THE COUNTRY STOOD FOR.
