@irontoenail - I have to say, I actually wish that it wasn't such a big deal. I wish the Million Man March in 1995 wasn't just a one time event (even if it did inspire other, similar events).
I think it should be an annual, or at least, a regular event. There are, unfortunately, always civil rights issues that need attention, not only for African Americans, but for many other minority groups as well.
They could make it a regular event, like a Pride parade and keep it in the public consciousness. I think that one of the enemies of minorities right now is that many people think there aren't any problems left to solve, which is obviously not true. Public perception needs to be changed.
