To live now, as human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.

Zinn the abuser
Twenty years ago when I was visiting my grand aunt I was telling her about finishing my sophomore year at MLK's Ph.D alma matter in Boston. When I told her about my American history class though I saw an expression of disgust and anger I'd never seen her make. Turns out we had the same teacher, nearly 35 years apart. she while a young junior at college in Atlanta, and I much later in Boston.
After some persistent prodding I learned that this teacher had promised her a teaching assistant position, she very much needed due to financial circumstances, and then attempted to exact a quid pro quo of intimate meetings. When she would not, he gave the position to someone else.
Three days ago my kid got an assignment to watch "People Speak" by her high school teacher. I told her about this piece of garbage's abuse of my great aunt, with whom she shares a name.
So I am here to tell you that this film is just an avalanche of hypocrisy celebrating a disgustingly hypocritical person who posed as a champion of the weak -- but in reality was an abuser who targeted the weak.
