A beautiful family

Last night I saw a beautiful family.  I was at the airport and saw a black woman and white man along with 2 black teenage boys all giving each other lots of love.  It's so unusual around here to see transracial families that I have to admit, I stalked them with my eyes while we were all waiting for luggage.

"I Have a Dream"

I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of "interposition" and "nullification" -- one day right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.
