Have a Rosa Parks rally in Downtown Crossing that features large banners showing things like blood-drenched crosses stabbing "Palestine" and Sudan and calling for driving out the Jews:

2. Unfortunate
Its unfortunate that a few people mar the civil rights message and cause disunity. On the other hand, I want to invite anyone interested to have a look at a program I'm involved in called the National Urban League Network of Young Professionals. Its a group of civic-minded people who want to take action with whatever time they have to confront racial injustice and support education programs; it also provides leadership opportunities, scholarships. The site is for anybody; the publications are worth the read, and anyone can donate to the organization on their website. I've seen the programs do for people what the government cannot even do.

to put this sign:

than next to the one you've got here. Although that crowd would force-feed it to you in under 10 seconds.

7. More deserving
I guess some people are more deserving of civil rights than others.
