TOO MUCH POWER Editorial By Joe C. Hopkins, Journal Publisher I recall a line in the movie about Malcolm x’s life where a police offi cer saw Malcolm coming to the jail with a group of well-dressed black men from the Fruit Of Islam, who moved upon Malcolm’s orders, responding with something to the effect, “That’s too much power for one man.” Of course, you can imagine what he called him.

Racial Discrimination Lives Joe C. Hopkins I was out looking for equipment assigned by my physical therapist this past weekend and I ended up in Glendale, California at an Armenian bakery to buy some water. They were all speaking an Armenian language, except me. As I exited the small shop, I noticed Asians walking up and down the street and waiting at the bus stop.
