So far the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington has been a bit of a circus: Washed-up musicians singing with Trayvon Martin's parents (who don't know the lyrics to their song) while the musician's backs are to the audience. Speakers calling for activism of all things Democratic (read: categorizing Americans into their own victimized box). It's quite strange yet not at all unusual for them. [Right now they have guys from New Zealand performing some kind of aboriginal dance. What does this have to do with MLK?]
Here's a sample of what I just mentioned. Charles Steele is the former National President of Southern Christian Leadership Conference. He is introduced as a man who "fully understands" the implication of the Voting Rights Act. He manages to transition MLK's march to "the poor". Based on what I've seen so far, the focus on "the poor" is MLK's legacy.
BTW: $5 to anyone who understands what Steele is talking about during the last minute of his speech:
