"One student asked Mr. Lewis if the 'black power' slogan had contributed to white backlash effects. 'I think there's no question about it,' he said. 'There is a cause-and-effect relationship.

OUR BEEF WITH TEXAS, by Andy Horowitz, January 28, 2007

"Let us not stop defending our city’s history. Let us not stop boasting of Eli Whitney and his cotton gin, of A. C.
