Did you hear? Yesterday was Martin Luther King day, a day of service and deep, emphatic reflection on how we have moved forward as a nation.
Normally, MLK Day is filled with fiery speeches about civic duty coupled with glamour shots of politicians (the President in particular) at such noted political watering holes as black churches, homeless shelters, and your neighborhood's fancy putlock dinner.

I stand today as your pastor to vehemently denounce and reject any such characterizations of the nations of Africa and of our brothers and sisters in Haiti.
Whoever made such a statement, whoever used such a visceral, disrespectful, dehumanizing adjective to characterize the nations of Africa, whoever said it, is wrong. And they ought to be held accountable.
