In The News:
Due to time constraints (and weather related fluctuating power) Da Buffalo will have to skip the news synopsis this morning.

However, I pray a little 'boilerplate' from a my recent post memorializing Martin Luther King Jr. may suffice:
"In 2010 we must all reach the difficult conclusion that the presence of Barack Obama requires the absence of Dr. King and that the former is more a system's protective response to the latter than any kind of continuation." --Jared Ball, Professor of communication studies, Morgan State University

Today Da Buffalo wants to Re-Present an excerpt of a sermon at the Riverside Church on April 4, 1967 which has come to be called "Beyond Vietnam".

Black Forum records, a subsidiary of Berry Gordy's Motown put it on vinyl, and the Reverend's speech won a Grammy in 1970 for the "Best Spoken Word Recording".

Indeed, all one has to do is replace the references to Vietnam with the words "Iraq" and "Afghanistan" in the speech that follows and you can easily see that, for the most part, we HAVE NOT accomplished, or even (as a nation) attempted to achieve the goals spoken of here by Martin Luther King Jr.
MLK Arrest Undated"Peace and Civil Rights don't mix they say, so this morning I speak to you on this issue because I am determined to take the Gospel seriously..."
"True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar... is not haphazard and superficial. It comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring."

Think on that while listening to the Reverend's sermon, as the Obama administration "bails out" the mortgage brokers and financial institutions allowing them to continue paying bonuses to their employees larger than most people in America, or on Earth, earn in their lifetimes, while leaving the mortgage holders, in many cases, homeless, and people who have lost their jobs in the current economic depression with no recourse but soup kitchens and poverty... ...or given an appropriate age, a job in the the US military, as the only available employer, for the Pentagon's DIRTY WARS in Afghanistan, Iraq, and other places not often mentioned in the US media.

Text of the entire sermon
Real Audio file (.ram) of the entire sermon (41:50 minutes) :

A BIG H/t to Sam Husseini, from whom I gleaned a number of links for this post.

Sam has the last word:
"There is one minor quibble I have with this sermon -- it ends with the lines
"And nations will not rise up against nations, neither shall they study war anymore. And I don't know about you, I ain't gonna study war no more."
But I think we do need to study war. We need to study war and all its destructiveness in excruciating detail." [src]
