What you need to do is stop writing or editing this article entirely, as you are incapable or both adhering to NPOV and refraining from extraneous nonsense about 9/11. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 17:16, 26 March 2012 (UTC)
This article doesn't seem to mention the positive reactions to Kennedy's assassination, focusing only on the mourning and tributes. As a famous example of a positive reaction, but certainly not the only one, see this, from Malcolm X:
