It’s the 46th Anniversary of the Racist Watts Riot: Today in History for August 11th (AP)



August 11, 1965, a decisive date in the killing of a nation.

Narrator Camille Bohannon fails to mention that Roots was a literary hoax that did not tell the history of Alex Haley’s family, or that Haley was forced to pay a six-figure court judgment to one of the white novelists he’d plagiarized.

This video is from August 11, 2009; it was the most recent one I could find.

If you think Haley is bad what must you think of Martin Luther King Jr.? An analysis by one authority on King's writings and speeches said he found it hard to find anything that King wrote or said to be anything that could not be found in someone elses' work.
Anyway King's crap is sealed by Federal order. That seal should not be allowed, but of course the seal will never be lifted.
