She (and I) is Not Going To The Back Of The Bus!

Few are the speeches that has truly moved me and this clip is one of them.

I was equally moved - into a state of shock - today by a young man's comment, betting that a President Obama will be assassinated. This was a black Canadian who in his misguided pomposity seem to think that bigotry and hatred exists only in the United States.

I beg to only today I had occasion to literally stare down the hate-filled gaze of a white supremacist right here in Canada!

So, while in the following clip Donna Brazille speaks about the US Presidential election and the sad history of racism in that country - her point(s) is relevant to people of colour across the world.

In fact, it is relevant to everyone one - no matter the skin colour.

Do watch, listen and absorb:
