Thank you for posting excerpts of Corky's speech. He was one the great Chicano Movement leaders and aligned with Malcolm X and MLK's later life views on the war.

Unfortunately much has still remained the same... in some cases worst. We are in great need of this brand of leaders today. Make Racists Afraid Again!
