Dr. Beck's other prominent theme was one of anti-racisim. He extolled us to come together as one nation without any regard at all for the color of our skin. The relatively tiny counter-rally conducted by Al Sharpton, in contrast, railed about Black people "rclaiming" Martin Luther King, Jr. and "the dream." One who sees the ironic contrast of these two messages must wonder how Liberals could be anything but embarassed.

What was the crowd count? I live here in the Washington, DC area and have some experience attending events. Also, I am an experienced accountant. I say that the crowd was between 300,000 and 600,000. Look at it this way: The area immediately surrounding the Reflecting Pool holds 200,000 people. That entire area was packed like a subway car in a Tokyo rush hour. Additionally, the massive field to the south, parallel to the Reflecting Pool , was full -- check the above link to an aerial photo. Additionally, the World War II Memorial area was packed, and there was also a pretty good crowd on the Washington Monument grounds. My best guess would be 500,000. If you encounter an estimate greater than 600,000, be skeptical and get the details, An estimate 200,000 you can confidently dismiss, most likely as wanton political misinformation, otherwise know as propaganda.
