The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
50 Years after Civil Rights Act of 1964 was signed, Equality is still elusive to African Americans in this country. Blacks have made many economic and educational gains, but progress still falls short.
Despite the dramatic courtroom and congressional victories and all seemly advancements Blacks/African Americans have made, due to the historic inequalities that had resulted in unequal access to education and job opportunities, Blacks/African Americans continue to struggle in areas of economics, employment and education.
NAACP Remarks: A massacre. A hate crime.
Nine parishioners were murdered last night while attending Bible study at the historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina.
They were killed in cold blood by Dylann Roof, a white man who sat among them during their worship for more than an hour, then opened fire, declaring "You're raping our women and taking over the country. You have to go."
There is no greater coward than a criminal who enters a house of God and slaughters innocent people engaged in the study of scripture.
In these times we feel distraught—but we will not cower when attacked. I am on my way to fellowship with the Emanuel AME Church community. As we wait for the facts and ponder how anyone could act with such hate, we must stand together and show our support for the Charleston community.
Now that Dylann Storm Roof has been apprehended, we look forward to justice being served—to him being held accountable, punished swiftly and severely.
Our heartfelt prayers and soul-deep condolences go out to the families and community of the victims. This small gesture can console and unite our community—and our nation—as we grapple with the weight of this tragedy.
