BLAX NEWS: Has The Black Community Put The Fear Of Respect For Institutions Like "MLK Jr Blvd" Into The Hearts Of Street Pirates That Assault Our People On "MLK Jr Bvld", "Abernathy Dr", "Lowery Dr" "Boone Dr"?

The Grio story tells the version of events which says that the Black community was APPEASED (by the power structure) in the naming of "Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr Blvd".
They clearly did not come to Atlanta to do their research. If they did they would find that Civil Rights Pharisee Rev Dr Joseph Lowery spearheaded the effort to achieve "community pride" by getting the Confederate General's names off of Atlanta Streets and replacing them with "OUR heroes".
While Rev Lowery was able to snag a street in his own honor - replacing Confederate General John Ashby - the truth is that the only thing that this has translated into on the streets is that when a police report is filed regarding the assault or murder of a Negro - instead of writing "543 Ashby Street NW" it says "543 Rev Joseph E Lowery Blvd".
In short The Grio "fell for the okey doke". Who within the Black Press is walking behind the "Black Racial Services Machine" and what they compel our people to INVEST IN as "Black Community Development" and affirm that there has been "lift up" rather than "JACKING"?
Rev Lowery and other Civil Rights Pharisees told the community that by placing their "heroes" on the street poles the pride and dignity expressed would lead to a mitigation of violence. This is like placing a paint job on a failing school and believing that they will become academic all-stars.
In as much as one is likely to be ATTACKED by questioning the veracity of the underlying motivations that are sold to the Black community ("What - you prefer a Confederate General to a Black person that fought to protect you from the Klan.....?") - these Embedded Confidence men are allowed to carry forth their agenda UNCHECKED by the results that they ultimately engender.
Fear not - they only need to keep their feet moving, finding another incident of RACISM to chase after to allow them remain in good stead with the majority of Black people.
I suspect that the next accomplishment for the Civil Rights Pharisees will be for them to secure donated sand blasting equipment from Home Depot and Lowes in order to remove the stain off of the side of Stone Mountain.
I would be more inclined to join in on their "racial gravitational pull" if they were to compel 1,000 Black students to become electronics engineers. The goal being to switch out the lasers in the "Stone Mountain Park Laser Show" for those which etch off a speckle of stone face from the side of the mountain each time it casts a light upon it. In about 5 years those "Confederate Bastards" will be gone.
One half of the electronic engineers should be assigned to building up a new class of "Laser Tasers", giving them to the innocent Black people who have to live in modern day Stone Mountain GA and suffer from the fear of Street Pirate attacks.
