On the anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor this day, 3/4 of a century ago. I would like to take it back another 113 years ago to Captain Charles Young addressing campus students at Stanford University. This address was discussing the daily attacks that were being initiated by citizens of this nation against citizens who were also citizens through second class in so many regards of this nation as well. Captain Charles Young speech that was in direct opposition to Booker T. Washington’s philosophy of casting your buckets where you are.
