It's sad that today 8-11-2014 the statement being mad here are still valid today due to the current riot in St. Louis over the death of Mike Brown, a 17-year old unarmed black boy shot 8-10 times by a white cop in the middle of the day for no reason. There has been so many deaths of my fellow brothers and sisters in which we don't know about. It feels as times haven't changed at all. 

I am a prouds black person's but the 2015 yearly mta benefits is going up my brothers and my bigs sisters butts to 4.50 carfares in new york city ityies, wach honkeyis you are next down the line of defended too....

Thanks Joshua - I'll get this updated ASAP. We don't have any paperwork for many of these newsfilms and sometimes the dates on film reels/cans are simply wrong. I'll also do this for the other clips that you pointed out to David Hilliard.

This is 1968, not 1966. Bobby is discussing the Democratic Convention in Chicago, among other things.
