All day today, MSNBC is airing the Commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington.
Hear Bayard Rustin read the 10 demands of the March on Washington 50 years ago. Ask yourself, have these demands been met after 50 years?

San Bernardino is suffering, for anybody who has been paying attention. In the aftermath of the recession and then the bankruptcy, the county leadership which includes representatives Supervisor Josie Gonzalez and James Ramos, have taken a decidedly (I would assert intentional)hands off approach to the county seat that is the city of San Bernardino. But has gross negligence toward our embattled city come to an end?
The video above was released by the County's District Attorneys office. It documents the messages that are sent using graffiti tagged on San Bernardino's walls. Personally, I have seen some of the graffiti in the video and know the reputation of some of the local street gangs (you wouldn't be a street savy San Bernardino resident if you didn't) especially West Side Verdugo. But why release a video now? I know the Sheriff's Department Deputy who was recently fired upon would be a clear correlation. But I have to wonder, is this a PR stunt? Would this lead to real law enforcement action?
Given the history of the county's stance toward our city of San Bernardino and the recent increase of Public Relations efforts by the District Attorney, I doubt any concrete law enforcement action would result. So DA Mike Ramos just kick back, have another fine beverage at a Redlands establishment and watch the landslide election results that will inevitably follow.
“And its [Republicans] only future path to the White House will lie in stoking white resentment to fever levels to produce the highest turnout possible, while dividing the country even further—but solidifying the cultural idea of “the party,” which is what really matters most to them.”
“Although we hear almost no one in the Obama administration taking credit for record index highs, they should. Because the President deserves attention for how well this economy has done during his leadership.”
