"During Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s day, the issue was love or hate. People let him know, specifically, whether they loved him or hated him. Whether they supported him and the civil rights movement or not, they made it plain. Today, and following the Rodney King riots of 1992 in South Central Los Angeles, the issue was not love or hate, but rather what I call 'radical indifference.' People who did not care enough about you, to hate you. Indifference is the death nail of the soul. This is the work of Operation HOPE -- rebuilding the bridges of community."
John Hope Bryant, founder, chairman and CEO, Operation HOPE
