He had a dream: Of a world in which people are able to succeed by their merits, their quality as an individual and be neither punished nor rewarded for the accidents of ancestry. We have that dream too.

When Hurricane Sandy struck the East Coast, even houses of worship were not spared.

A local television station interviewed a black woman from New Jersey and asked how the loss of churches in the area would affected their lives.

Without hesitation, the woman replied, “I don’t know ’bout all those other
people, but we ain’t gone to Churches in years. We gets our chicken from Popeye’s.”

The look on the interviewer’s face was priceless.
They live among us, AND THEY VOTE!!!

He was a man of God, a perfect example of peaceful protest against inequality and a Republican.

Yeah… man of God. If only he hadn’t had so much trouble with certain commandments. If you can get past all the spoon-fed info about him, there wasn’t all that much to respect about the man. The ideals they have attached to him are wonderful, but as for the man himself. Meh.

He was definitely a skirt chaser, but given what we have seen since in that department, he was at least somewhat discreet. And Kennedy was doing the same thing, so we can’t say JFK was great and King wasn’t based on his behaviour and attitude toward women. Having said that, I appreciate his move toward non violence compared to the riots that followed his death

Well, the Republican part left him shortly after his speech to the rabble for violence in the streets because of the war and the draft of too many black fellows as compared to white sons that were getting deferments for college and everything else. His point was real, but he discounted the volunteer percentages that countered the argument. However, he would shudder today, seeing what racists have done to organizations he fostered in his lifetime.

I believe God used him in a mighty way, but the Bible is full of mighty men of God that stumbled time and again.

Well TaxSlave, I don’t know about the puppet part, but if by race hustler you mean encouraging people to be responsible for their own actions, be self sufficient, be judged on your character and not the color of your skin, be a parent to you children, etc….Then I say we could use a few more high profile “race hustlers” like him.

The sad part is, we have Col. West, and a few more, but you see how the media treats them.

Oh, I think he’s alluding to the “Commie Conspiracy’ angle about King.

The democrats have systematically since LBJ done everything possible to make sure King’s “dream” does not come true. It is Terrible what they have done to repress the liberty of black people. All so they could create a dependent class to promote their own averice.

How in the hell did we go from a MAN like that as a spokesman for black Americans, to the likes of Sharpton and Jackson?
This is a serious question, and any black Americans out there are welcome to answer it for me.

That was well underway by the time of King’s death. I think it was just the rabble rousers that wanted to be the aggressors perverting the Dream

Indeed! He was a smart man. I am disgusted how he has been appropriated by people because of his skin color, instead of his wisdom. He is a mockery used to perpetrate the very things that he was staunchly fighting against, just with the previous “victims” now the aggressors. He must be turning in his grave.

Absolutely disgusting is the Democratic racism against black Republicans.
