Today we celebrate^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^Hremember the death, thirty years ago, of a rabid integrationist, and even more rabid Marxist. A man who wanted nothing more than to help his fellow citizens. A man who thought that black people and jews had just as much right to exist as the white people did. For this he was persecuted by Congress, who went so far as to send a congressman, and future congresswoman, to spy on him his home in South America, where he had fled to from California, and before that, Indiana.
Our last such celebration was in 2003, because we aren't very observant.
