“The purpose of the 24 hour prayer vigil for John King [Admitted White Supremacist] is to simply ask that his life be spared. James Byrd Jr. was a man, a son, husband, father, brother and friend — lost forever to those who loved him; lost in a most brutal and particularly heinous way. Mr. Byrd’s death rocked Jasper, Texas. His death shocked Americans and shocked the world. Many of us could never imagine a valid reason for his death including the hate of an avowed White Supremacist. The Bible says that there is nothing that a man can ever do that God cannot undo in due time. It also states that ‘wherever two or more are gathered in my name therefore am I in the midst of you.” Dick Gregory returns to The Context of White Supremacy. He’ll offer his views on the White Terrorist Death of James Byrd Jr. and why his Racist Killers should not be executed.
