Coretta Scott King was laid to rest yesterday after a six-hour service attended by four Presidents and 10,000 ordinary people who came to pay tribute to the first lady of the civil rights movement – and one of its last icons. However the other story which unfolded was the George Bush ambush that took place.
It says something about our “democracy” when Bush can only face criticism in public as a side effect of his attendance at a funeral but when entering the black community, dont expect everybody to stick to the informal rules of the majority public. Civil-rights leader Rev. Joseph Lowery set it off on Bush , smiled in his face, hugged him and his wife and then others followed his tune.
