California Newsreel: Video: James Baldwin: The Price of The Ticket


This post was originally posted at FRS Daily Post on WordPress

I think James Baldwin’s best statement in this video is that he wasn’t a member of a race or a religion or any group. That he was a human being and I imagine as such that is all he wanted to be seen as and judged as. James Baldwin the person and perhaps who just happens to also be part of this group or these groups. And isn’t that Martin King’s’ dream that he dreamed of a world where his children wouldn’t be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. Or how I would put it and how I look at people as both a person and a Liberal, that I look at people as individuals first. And perhaps as members of groups second or even further down the line. But not as part of this race, ethnicity, religion or any other class that has nothing to do with how good of a person they are. And how they should be judged and treated in life.
