Civil Rights or Human Rights?

Civil Rights or Human Rights?
Kevin Bryant

OK, I already know that some of you are going to totally disagree with me and that is fine. That is what makes America so great, if we disagree, we can come right out and say it or even shout it if we want to or we can debate it. The founding fathers disagreed and debated on many topics during the writing of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

Civil Rights – no I am not going to give you the Webster definition or anything. Pretty much everyone in this country knows enough about the civil rights movement to know what it was about, that it passed congress and became law. It had a few kinks in it but those too have long since been ironed out.

With this in mind, would someone please tell me why Al Sharpton had to have a civil rights march on 8/28 or why he condemned Glenn Beck on television for not using the term “Civil Rights” in his speech on 8/28?

Prior to the speech on 8/28, Glenn Beck stated that he was going to take back civil rights. In his speech, on that day, he stated for the taking back of our God given human rights as the constitution dictates we all possess. Sorry to “offend” anyone, but CIVIL RIGHTS is over. It’s been passed already. The ONLY thing left to be debated on any so called rights granted to a specific group of people is the right of gay and lesbians to marry, and I have already stated my opinion on the subject.

Taking back civil rights. You have to take back the original meaning because it means something totally different now. Government is hijacking OUR rights, you, me and every citizen of this nation’s civil rights. It’s no longer a skin color thing. It’s a “WE” thing and the sooner “WE” all learn this, the better off “WE” will be. If “WE” don’t get it together now and take back OUR civil rights, not only will we never see them again, our children and grandchildren will not see them either.
