Rev. Anthony Boger gave a talk at Pacifica Institute, Orange County branch.. He talked about the ability to appeal to a moral consciousness of men in a corrupted world, to appeal to someone moral consciousness takes above and beyond human flash can do. We believe that there is a God, sometimes we believe an effort that takes beyond ourselves to change others so that the totality of others benefit. Mr. Boger gives a great example of Rosa Park, when she sat down and refused to give her sit to a white passenger. After the supreme court, Alabama bus segregation law in 1956, Martin Luther King cofounded the southern christen leadership conference and promoted nonviolent action as civil right throughout the south. He was influenced by the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi and travel to India in 1959. Throughout the 1960s he was arrested for doing nonviolent protest in Alabama, Florida and Georgia. While in jail, in 1963 King wrote the letter in Birmingham jail outlining the basis for civil right movements. August of 1963, King delivered the great “I Have a Dream” speech to two hundred thousand people gathered at the National Mall in Washington. Martin Luther King was and is an iconic figure equal representation that all fights do not require blood shed to achieve the end game of peace, power and prosperity.

Furthermore, Mr. Boger goes on talking about black people in Africa don’t know where their ancestors came from and they are far removed from one another because of the generation of slavery. Most of the slaves come to America for an opportunity, beaten, denied from education and build the America economy working land of rice, tobacco and cotton as slave’s free labor. Mr. Boger states that “I am grateful; nowadays there is no beaten or sold any longer and no more slavery”. He said that this was the second travesty in the American history, second to only what was done to American Indians, where their land was stolen from them. Mr. Boger concluding his speech by saying that we should not believe what we see or hear on the news about black people. Try to get to know who they really are without pre-consider who he really is about other people that prejudice. He also mentioned that we should build our own threshold of trust relationship with people who are not like you.
