Threats

Watching the Cincinnati vs. Temple game tonight, I was struck by the symbolism of Ralph Abernathy IV's role on Cincy's team.

He is of course the grandson of Ralph Abernathy II, who was with Martin Luther King when the great civil rights leader was assassinated in Memphis in 1968.

Until the 1960s, blacks could not play football at major universities in the South.

That reality was not all that long ago.  We must be vigilant today, as there are people who would like to roll back the clock on much of what has changed since then.

They are dangerous, and they are positioned to cause real damage.
