Value begins from within, and permeates outward. Never the other way around. A level playing field enables competitiveness, but as Bishop G.T.Haywood stated, “Discrimination is weak against superior Determination.” Have you ever witnessed a beggar beg his way from underneath a bridge? I know, no analogy is perfect, but the SPIRIT of the M.L. King Movement is, “MY Life Matters” Words have spirit’s. I believe we must be careful not to be taken up with the wrong spirit in our efforts to bring about positive change. It is important to discern the people behind a movement and not just the movement. ~Ellington Haywood Ellis
