More hero worship - Walter Williams

So a few months back I wrote a post "Citizen or Subject" about how the citizens of the UNited States have a duty to actively resist laws that are contrary to the constitution.

Well Walter Williams has a lovely little exposition about this very topic today.
" You say, "Hey, Williams, but it's the law!" In the late-1700s, the British Parliament enacted the Sugar Act, the Stamp Act and the Townshend Acts, and imposed other grievances that are enumerated in our Declaration of Independence. I'm happy that we didn't have today's Americans around at the time to bow before King George III and say, "It's the law.""
With smart folks around such as Williams and Thomas Sowell, why is it the only "black leaders" we ever see in the media are Louis Farrakhan, Jessie Jackson, and Al Sharpton?
