Where Is Our MLK for Disenrollment?


The death of civil rights icon Julian Bond last week gets me off the dime on commentary I resolved to make on my series of articles about the disappearance of thousands of Indians at the hands of other Indians in the disenrollment epidemic.

Bond, poet and politician, a founder of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and the Southern Poverty Law Center, was a force of nature on the level of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and in lamenting Bond’s passing the rumble of Indian self interest should rattle the windows like the bass line in a gospel choir: Where is our Julian Bond; where is our MLK?
