I wanted to post a few comments on the late and honorable Mr. Rodney King. As you know, we lost a sweet and modest person on June 17, 2012 to what has been defined as a drowning. Although Mr. King was notoriously known as the motorist who had a violent encounter with Los Angeles Police in 1991 and for the “can’t we all just get along” saying, he is more than simply these things. He is a replica of the many lives that have been lost to discrimination and injustice. He is the face of the condition that perpetuates inequality. He was a living stake for the many culturally distinct groups who have experienced oppression and rage as a result of a lack of understanding of genetic difference. He served a significant purpose while he lived, and he is serving an even greater purpose as he rests in peace.
