    Dr. Bell was and still is ..one of my heroes. I've sheard his books on my recommended reading list and his video interviews have been on my rotation of panels/readings/lectures.We choose our heroes and our advocates and the right wing white and black pundits have made a contract with each other that defies human decency and fairness.We must not let them destroy years/decades of sweat, suffering, death and humiliation of a people to move forward despite barriers.
