The former Education Secretary, William Bennett, used poor judgement when he used as an example aborting "every Black baby in this country" in order to reduce the crime rate. I really don't know what his intentions were when he made that comment. I do know that there are individuals in this country, some in high places, who wish they could do just that. Yes, we would like to think that things are different now, but race is still a volatile issue in America. The turn of events in New Orleans and comments like the one made by the former secretary prove just that. This is why we need to continue to march and fight for not only the rights of Blacks in this country, but human rights. We need to educate the masses and agitate the classes.
