Flags at half staff for only one day for Parks?

That seems pretty skimpy for someone who is lying in state under the US Capital Rotunda.

See article U.S. civil rights heroine Rosa Parks honored at Capitol Hill (No excerpt has been taken from it for this post.)

Once again the president is playing to his bigotted base.

How dare he parade around this as if he cares.

I'm sure he won't be brave enough to visit her grave in Detroit.

The last time he visited Martin Luther King's tomb, it didn't go well. In fact, a crowd of 800 (some earlier reports said about 1000) refused to be put away in the "free speech zone where reporters couldn't hear them, and harassed the president with "Move Bush--get out the way."

And still the RNC pays message board spammers to post bigotry on forums.

And their Southern Strategy of giving comfort to bigots has helped to bring racism back into favor from the grave we have buried it in during the 60s and early 70s.
