Appointed executive director of the National Urban League in 1961, Whitney Young Jr. helped bridge the gap between white political and business leaders and poor blacks and militants. Under his direction the organization grew from 60 to 98 chapters, and he was particularly credited with almost singlehandedly persuading corporate America and major foundations to aid the civil rights movement.

    And Obama says nothing on the passing of this man. Why am I not surprised?

    Can we please not make this about Obama; yes, he is disappointing but this isn't about him.

    oh for God's sake you people are such posers pretending you care. He's been dead since March 1971! How did THAT escape your notice if his "passing" has moved you so much?

    These Soda-cons are so disingenuous. They know nothing about him. They just saw a civil rights era black face and tried to co-opt it. He's been dead 42 years and they didn't even know it.

    True; I do hate when they do that and they always have to mention Obama every time I make a post about a Civil Rights leader. These men and women get me emotional how they were so brave and despite the hate were able to make great accomplishments. Some Conservatives on this site just use this as points and don't take the time to really learn about these great/brave Americans.

    precisely. As you can see from Debrarae's misfired attempt to fake an appreciation of a civil rights leader, Sodacons have no real interest in the black experience. I dare say they'd roll their eyes at the concept that there is a black experience but here they are pretending to recognize someone from that experience. it's infuriating.

    I'm not a conservative,I got to guru at 1:00 A.m. so I don't need any points and I've never said anything to you about Obama on any of your polls.

    I wasn't sure because of what the other person said and I'm sorry I didn't realize that Mr young died In 1971,to be honest I don't know a lot about the civil rights movement other than what I was taught In school and that's why I like your posts because I learned things about African American culture and some of the other things that they don't teach you In school.I think the schools need to teach people the truth,not their sugar coated version of the truth.I promise to do more research on someone before I comment next time.

    My compliments wouldn't make 2 cents difference to you, I'm sure, but I offer them anyway. History isn't the property of either party or left/right ideology. It simply is what it is and we should all just learn from it.

    I'm not pretending to care,my nephew Is mixed,his mother Is from Jamaica. You can accuse me of being stupid because I didn't realize he died that long ago,but don't act like you know what I do or don't care about,I've had a rough day I got some bad news so I didn't think to find out more Info before I answered the poll.
