Think you Jazzy for the info on Yolanda, one of the networks should be doing a story on the Kings. The King family has my sympathies,they have carried themselves well,indeed. I would expect perhaps Rev.Jackson my have a tribute to her this saturday on his show. MUCH LOVE FOR ALL THE KINGS.

Glad she's gone...The King family is wacko...African-Americans are sliding into a toilet bowl...The Kings are a big part of why...They are wrong about a lot of things...They are near the heart of the problem...Glad, not sad...Glad Coretta's yap-yap is quieted too.

Dear Sister Jasmyne, Thank you for your fitting tribute: We must continue making the 'human love difference'.

I submit a poem for YOLANDA: "FLY HOME"

FLY HOME
SWEET SPIRIT
FLY HOME
AND
TAKE YOUR REST

WE HERE WILL CONTINUE
LIKE YOUR MOTHER CORETTA
YOUR FATHER MARTIN
LIKE BEAUTIFUL YOU

THE LESSONS TAUGHT
AND
LEFT IN OUR MINDS-HEARTS
WILL HELP US MAKE IT THROUGH

FLY HOME
MY SISTER
FLY HOME
AND
TAKE YOUR REST

IT'S WITH LOVE
CAN WE ONLY DO OUR BEST

FLY HOME
SISTER SOLDIER
AND
TAKE YOUR ETERNAL REST

She was an inspiration. Thanks Jas for a wonderful tribute.

A wonderful woman who always inspired.

Also, as the person who took that photo (http://www.flickr.com/photos/tyreseus/244916583/), I wonder if you might supply a photo credit to Out & Equal Workplace Advocates?

Speaking last January in Atlanta at Ebenezer Baptist Church — where her father preached for many years — Yolanda exhorted those observing the national holiday that bears his name to remember that America has not yet achieved peace and racial equality.

"We must keep reaching across the table and, in the tradition of Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King, feed each other," said Yolanda, urging those who honor the Kings' work to question their own beliefs on prejudice and be a personal force for peace and love.

Yolanda at that same ceremony used her craft as an actress to deliver a tribute to her parents, performing a series of skits telling stories including a girl's first ride on a desegregated bus and a college student's recollection of the 1963 desegregation of Birmingham, Ala. (CBS News)

------------------------

We were very fortunate this year to have the opportunity to meet Yolanda. She was a remarkable woman, who's love, passion for life and remarkable human kindness will never be forgotten.

Jasmyne, thank you for your post.

I think the in regards to the NAACP that there just needs to be more than one organization. The NAACP is fine for what it is, but there needs to be the b side, that's what needs to be done. Asking the NAACP to change would be like asking academia to change or the Catholic Church.

I think there just needs to be another organization that addressses different issues and hopefully that organization can work in conjunction with the NAACP.
