Update: I have a bumper sticker saying to contrast Rosa Parks with Niky Diaz:
"Rosa Parks was TIRED after a long day of work and sick of the unjust laws. After refusing to give up her seat due to her race she was arrested. Niky Diaz was FIRED from her living wage job that paid $23 per hour because she was in the nation illegally". Gloria Allred was HIRED to take up her cause after Allred searched for dirt upon her ideological and political adversary in the context of a political contest and happened upon Diaz's grievances.
I have learned to not focus upon the "Snarling Fox White Liberal" who molests the image and honor of Civil Rights greats. Instead I focus upon the Black Progressive Establishment players and how they respond.
Please note that these same Black Progressive Establishment operatives first played up Glenn Beck's choice to convene on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial as his hijacking of the spirit of Dr King. Then they spent the balance of their attack articles and blogs telling us that "Glenn Beck is no Dr King". A point that Beck himself never made.
Fast forward to yet another example of the ideological bigotry and selective offense that is abundant among the Black Progressive Establishment. In the context of damaging a Republican candidate for governor of California you can be sure that there will not be a coordinated OUTRAGE registered against Allred for abusing the memory of Rosa Parks in such a manner.
Rosa Parks did not make $23 per hour while working for a billionaire - even if we adjust for inflation. Rosa Parks did not violate any JUST laws. Having Blacks sit at the back of the bus due to our race was a violation of human rights. Immigration laws and regulations are necessary lest we have chaos, undercutting the very economic order of this nation that people who come here are attracted to.
Again - I choose to look at the reactions of those who typically cast themselves as the "Keepers Of The Black Honor". I realize that when it comes to ideology and politics - they don't mind sublimating their "Black Consciousness" and "Honor Code" because today they are more Progressive-Fundamentalists than they have any real intention of advancing and protecting the interests of Black people.

Admittedly I can't say I blame any of them. If I were running in a state that:
- Is functionally insolvent
- Has the lowest credit rating of any state sans Illinois
- Has a higher than average unemployment rate
I too would be attempting to divert my loyal followers onto issues that are not germane to their standard of living.
