Where Are The Black Cindy Sheehans?

By Earl Ofari Hutchinson, AlterNet.

The moving sight of aggrieved mother Cindy Sheehan camped out in front of President Bush's ranch touched a national nerve. Sheehan is a white mom that lost a son. And who wouldn't be compassionate and sensitive to her loss? But there are plenty of black moms that have lost sons in Iraq, and few have followed Sheehan's example and publicly and dramatically raised their voices in protest.

Should African Americans follow whites like the good little drones that this article is suggesting?
