Rodney King's Legacy
« on: June 18, 2012, 09:02:46 PM »
During the riots that followed the trial where 4 white police officers were acquited in LA, Rodney King was asked to speak while blocks of the city went up in flames.  He deviated from the prepared remarks that someone had given him and said "Can't we all just get along?". 

Great advice for everyone, and maybe some day some of us on this board will be able to get along with our estranged families.

Did you see where he just passed away?  He was 47...so young.
