Read And Watch With Me – April 1st 2013

Kid And TV Boy Read And Watch With me

Join me in what I watch and read each day.

In this new series, I will post the things I am reading (articles, news) and watching (youtube, politics, etc.) in an article each day. I will leave it open and add to it as I go about my day and update it for the site with new content.

In that way you can see exactly the type of things I am reading or watching and join in if you want. There is no rhyme and reason, it will simply be the things I’ve looked at that day. These articles will essentially replace my Good Reads site page. Enjoy.

April 1st 2013
* Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas Interview By Julian Bond – Exploring Black Leadership – This was absolutely fascinating. I fully concur with this top-rated youtube comment: “Clarence Thomas – Humble, Modest, Bright, Philosophical, Patriot, Elder, and a Great American Story. I’m a fan.” That is all you can get from this very long, extended interview. Clarence Thomas is a new role-model of mine and a man I greatly admire. Even if you disagree, you can’t help but gain much respect for him after hearing him speak in this interview.

– MLK – “I submit that an individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for law.” Martin Luther King Jr., “Letter from Birmingham Jail”, 4/16/63

Thomas Jefferson – “Law is often the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the right of an individual.”: Thomas Jefferson to I. Tiffany, 1819

Grant Gilmore – “Law reflects but in no sense determines the moral worth of a society. The values of a reasonably just society will reflect themselves in a reasonably just law. The better the society, the less law there will be. In heaven there will be no law, and the lion shall lie down with the lamb. The values of an unjust society will reflect themselves in an unjust law. The worse the society, the more law there will be. In hell there will be nothing but law, and due process will be meticulously observed.” [The ages of American law, Grant Gilmore, (Yale university Press,1977)P.110, quoting Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, The common Law, (Howe ed. 1963)]
