MLK March In Downtown Greenville

Dozens of people marched down Greenville streets Monday morning in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The MLK March and Rally for Equality and Justice began at Thomas Foreman Park and ended up at the Pitt County Courthouse.

The march was sponsored by the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and the Coalition Against Racism.

In Durham, the president of the North Carolina NAACP was the kenote speaker at the 30th Annual MLK Trianle Interfaith Prayer Breakfast.

Rev. William Barber also spoke at the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Charlotte on Sunday.

    Why is everyone so serious about this? ~ALPHA female~ is probably a big fat guy who gets his willies off pretending to be a lady. Anyone with so much time on their hands to think that debating on a local news website is important must not have a life. By arguing with this person you only fuel the ignorant fire. As a tip ~ALPHA female~, why don't you try some Fox or CNN message boards, maybe you'll have a chance of getting discovered... real ladies, and gentlemen for that matter, don't associate Al Sharpton with anything great. To think he is anything other than an ignorant racist is ignorant in itself. Racism is not a one way street, and the wonderful Rev. Al Sharpton is a great participant. This is the first, and the only time I will adress the great, almighty ~Alpha female~, I wouldn't want it going to "her" head.

    racism is a hard thing for both black and white people to overcome, because it goes both ways. ive decided to forget about it and just live my life. everyone else do that and we can actually get stuff done since we wont have anymore scapegoats or people to blame for our lives not being what we want them to be. its been ten years since ive decided to do this and its worked for me. the kind of barbs thrown between alpha female and posters is exactly the opposite of solving the problem. it just stirs up the muck that much more. which says that people are not interested in resolving racism because it gives them someone to blame.

    I am sorry to anyone that I have offended with my harsh accusations. I understand that what I say is rude and I should be held accountable.

    To protest ~ALPHA female~ just report abuse with her comments. Eventually the point will get across that people are tired of her insults.

    I want to ask a question. Why is ther still an NAACP? or a Coalition against racism? We are all members of the human race. I do get sick and tired of people bringing up racism. We live in a world that it is so easy to see people by the goodness and deeds that they do, rather than ignorance. We have an American/African president. Isn't that the dream of MLK jr. and the NAACP. I have a poster of Dr. and Mrs. King, and the Obamas that says, The dream realized. It is beautiful. My students wear their hearts on their sleeves. They are color blind. We love each other no matter what our backgrounds.

    North Carolina Bumpkins become upset when told the truth. Ignorance in the south must be a heredity thing. (I know a lot of you will need time to look that up.) I will do my best to educate ya’ll.
