MOB RULE 2010:-Louisiana? What will you do when the Kingdom Comes

In the years before the passage of the Civil Rights Act and before Brown v. Board of Education and Little Rock and New Orleans, and even since the onslaught of slavery; in America, it has been and still is MOB RULE. The chants of 2, 4, 6, 8 we don't want to integrate rang resoundingly on the CBS Evening News in the 60's. The Jeering, then. The mobs of white folk, on the attack. Sometimes, as the police; more often than not. At other, times just mobs of white citizens. Bloody Sunday is an example of the 'mob rule' bludgeoning by law enforcement.

Now in this twenty-first century, the hollering white folks are back. As if, given a signal to "move out." Some are too young to "Know", it is a mindset of 'supremacist whites' that a negro can never actually run or 'administrate' any thing successfully. So that, it was a knee jerk reaction, to cause to think the current president could not function properly, innately. It would be beyond their reasoning to think such, for the majority.

In 1957, the mob ruled until federal troops were sent to Little Rock. In 1960 Ruby Bridges integrated as a first; the public schools in New Orleans. MOB RULED, until federal marshals were sent. And still, the shouts and jeers. The mobs.

Now, in 2010. Since the election of President Barack Obama, the mobs have ensued again. In 2007, a mass-march was held in Louisiana in the town of Jena. After the march, the father of the then sheriff-elect, wrote an article in the "family newspaper", the only paper in the town. In essence, the article said; it was time to get as busy as the civil rights activist were. The article was about "jumping frogs". The article entitled 'Old Frogs better start jumping,' was eyed by every concerned conservative in the nation. At that time, the town was ground zero.
The final statement in the article, went as such:
"Although the old guard is dying off, and getting too tired to fight, they have to muster one more charge. If they don’t, our children, and grandchildren, will never know the joy and freedom that is the bedrock of our country. The heat is slowly being turned up and the water is getting hot. The old frogs better start jumping before it’s too late."
Obama wasn't nominated or elected when the article was written. A COGIC Church was burned in Massachusetts the night Obama was elected. Yet, there is a responsive resolution to this activity.

Before Coretta King died she said it was up to the people to bring the 'right' people to justice for the murder of her husband. The information was all in the Trial Transcript. Tavis Smiley, Bill Moyers, and a Civil Rights History timeline, is occurring in recognition of April 4, 1968. It is seemingly strange, that somehow this year's Resurrection day is also the day Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was assassinated.

White Supremacist hoped Obama's win would bring a backlash. It Did. Some, are now trying to force it to be said, "it ain't so", but it is. And where will it all end. Louisiana's Legislature is attempting to force a US Constitution Article 5 - Constitutional Convention for the purposes of Amending the Constitution. Evidently the states whose Attorney's General, have filed suit because of the "HealthCare" Bill, were testing for the right number of states for the Article 5 amending, or to further insight someone to do, what they won't. It is no doubt we are On the Brink of a "wind change".

Will it be the same wind, that blew in 1963 in Dealey Plaza. Is that the coded message, the young woman was referring to the other day? After all, President Obama is definitely, not being judged by the content of his character. Besides, anyway, the Nationalist said in Jena in 2008, 'No King over Us'.

Some have mistakenly believed, that Obama's presidency was the culmination of Dr. King's dream. The presidency is just another cog in the wheel of justice. There is still much work to be done. Much WORK!! The "schisms and 'isms" are still prevalent.
The poor are still with us. And, the big dander is all up about, paying more for somebody else to receive. But wait, that sounds kinda judeo-christian, the ideals America was supposedly founded upon.

Help us, Lord Jesus. We are adrift in a stormy sea.
