Barnstormer: Common sense would dictate that once you get a national holiday named after you, you are now a public figure and your speeches lose their copyright. But then, in a perfect world, a beer would still cost a nickel.


There's a difference between the text of a speech and a specific recording of that speech.

/Lol.

Ahhh, the racist is back, how ya doin Dro?

I aint mad, i gots the sad because his dream is not yet realized. You know, that whole judging people on content of character and not skin color.



I'm doing great, thanks for asking. I disagree with your post. I have no idea what color you are but I read fairly well so I know who the internet gangsters are. I don't think you're a dick because you're white. My opinion is based solely on the content of your (internet) character. In fact, normally the people who post the most outrageous, incindiary things on Fark are ALWAYS anonymous. No pics in the profile, no locations, nothing. I assume its because you all have a hard time taking what you dish. So, its not possible for me to form an opinion of you based on how you look. I have never judged one of you based on your appearence. Only on what you appear to be.

Too bad Aaron Swartz isn't around to celebrate the anniversary of SOPA's defeat.

I think it sullies his memory to have named so many dangerous streets after him. Why couldn't the racist white politicians have named some nice streets after him?

Fark: Which you wouldn't have been able to see if SOPA had passed

Ah, but why is that? Is that because his relatives are a bunch of blood sucking leeches living off his legacy and run screaming to court to demand payment anytime somebody tries to use anything he ever said, thus potentially harming the very movement King died to promote? This is putting aside the fact that King was a plagiarist to the nth degree so other people copying or using his work would seem okay under that circumstance as well.

I guess I don't get the joke. It's easily found and abundantly available on YouTube.

My MLK isn't a bad street. It's just a really long blvd and it eventually goes through some bad areas. I think most of them are like that, I don't think it's intentional.

CS,B time: Our campus choir had a gig tonight at a ceremony honoring notable African-Americans in the community. One guy recited the entire I Have A Dream speech by memory and sounded dead-on for MLK, mannerisms and all. It was pretty damned moving.
