    I was just thinking today that U.S. presidents are all pro-military and pro-strength and there are presidential statues on the Washington Mall of some of these presidents. However, the statue of an African-American that was chosen was not one of militant strength (Malcolm X), instead they choose one of non-violence, the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

    This is a double standard of American society in how White people and Black people are more accepted if they behave in these conforming roles.
