Martin Luther King gave his life to unite America, to make America one country for all people, and to end the insult to humanity known as SEGREGATION.
No one who isn’t or wasn’t an absolute Martin Luther King insider would ever know the whole man, but, what we do know about Martin Luther King is that his resolve to remove color barriers was infinite.
From a plethora of Martin Luther King sermons, speeches and writings, we also know that he was a valiant warrior against all forms of discrimination, and inspired an army of well-meaning non Blacks who took to the streets arm in arm amongst Black Americans in protest against all racial and ethnic wrongs.
MARTIN LUTHER KING WAS NOT A DIVIDER:
To hear the warm-up speeches before Obama’s tribute to Martin Luther King on Sunday (October 16, 2011), you would think that Martin Luther King was a singular focused man who saw enemies of opposite color around every corner. When in fact, nothing could be further from the truth.
On June 21, 1964 in Neshoba County Mississippi, three Civil Rights Workers were lynched by a mob. Of the three, one was a Black Christian, but two were White Jews who really had no dog of their own in this fight, but were there nonetheless.
And these were not the ONLY non Blacks who put themselves in great danger for the racial RIGHTS and EQUALITY of others because of WHITE support for Martin Luther King.
So, for the pre-Obama speakers to speak of Martin Luther King’s legacy in terms of us versus them, “THEM” being the phantom bad White guys, does an enormous disservice to everything we knew about Martin Luther King’s passion for equality.
AND THEN CAME THE GREAT DIVIDER:
After the insulting revisionist pre-Obama speakers, Obama himself came onto the podium to bat cleanup. In Obama’s “tribute” to Martin Luther King, he emphasized how much of King’s “DREAM” has not yet been fulfilled. And how there was still a great racial divide. And how Black Americans are still amongst the downtrodden.
Obama compared King’s commitment to social justice to the OCCUPY dregs found throughout America, as if they were one in the same. And then he, Obama, in his best Black Preachers voice and cadence lit into a re-election sermon.
How disrespectful was that . . . campaigning on the grave of Martin Luther King?
Let no one be confused about Obama and the LEFT’S roll in this Martin Luther King Commemoration . . . King was not being honored. KING WAS BEING USED as yet another Obama/LEFTIST propaganda backdrop.
To hear Obama and so many Blacks and LEFTISTS wail-on about how King’s job wasn’t done, you’d think that there wasn’t a Black President and Black First Lady and Black First Children in the White House.
You’d think that there isn’t a Black Attorney General. A Black Ambassador to the United Nations, a Black Svengali (Valerie Jarrett) calling most of the policy shots, and a great many Black Americans in Obama’s army of unvetted Czars.
From what Obama and the LEFT said, you’d think that Republicans like George W Bush didn’t have Black Americans serving him in the highest of positions, such as Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice.
When King was a younger Black man, Black athletes couldn’t play in the professional leagues of football, baseball and basketball. But today, they dominate these sports to the point where you see few White faces playing any of these games at professional levels.
Black singers, dancers, musicians and comedians were in the past kept from enjoying artistic equality, but today, Black Americans are amongst the top performers in America.
But let’s forget about the fields of sports and entertainment, and focus on the worlds of business and academia where Blacks do as well as anyone can who has the desire to succeed.
AFFIRMATIVE ACTION EQUALS REVERSE DISCRIMINATION:
I am totally against any form of Affirmative Action that gives an unfair advantage to anyone based on race. I believe entirely in a MERITOCRACY where the best person gets the job regardless of race.
But, America’s White community VOLUNTARILY put itself at a huge disadvantage by passing a law (Affirmative Action) that discriminated against Whites, enabling Black Americans to get an unfair leg-up.
Where’s the thank you from the Black community to the White community for such a selfless sacrifice?
I am fed-up with the bellyaching of Black leaders in America who won’t look in the mirror and see why American Blacks really lead the nation in being arrested, incarcerated, teenage pregnancies, single moms, high school dropouts, illiteracy, drug dealing and unemployment.
As a Canadian, I’ve been shocked when visiting American cities where I’ve come into contact with Black American born and educated clerks working as cashiers who couldn’t speak recognizable English. AND THAT’S NOT ANECDOTAL.
For Obama and the LEFTISTS to take the opportunity of Martin Luther King’s Commemoration to besmirch Martin Luther King’s DREAM by politicizing it and creating class and race divisions is reprehensible.
THERE IS NO PLEASURE IN ME SAYING “I TOLD YOU SO”:
Even before Obama was sworn into the Presidency, I often wrote that Obama would become the most divisive President in American history. And that he would divide America unlike anything since the Civil War.
Before the people take to the polls in November 2012, America will erupt into class and street warfare, pitting the TAKERS against the MAKERS and Blacks against Whites.
AND THIS WILL BE IN NO UNCERTAIN TERMS THE LEGACY OF THE PEOPLE WHO ELECTED BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, SINCE THEY SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER.
MARTIN LUTHER KING’S DREAM WAS NOT TOTALLY LOST:
There is good news about the DREAM of Martin Luther King in the likes of Herman Cain, who has incontrovertibly proven beyond any shadow of doubt, that all Americans, even Americans of color who believe in themselves and in their country can reach for and grasp the brass ring.
And in spite of the hateful words of despair and blame shouted from the podium by the race-baiting Obama, America’s Divider-In-Chief, Herman Cain is one shining example of what a Black Person or ANY person in America can do if he or she tries hard enough to do it.
If there is truly justice in America . . . and if all goes the way it should for Herman Cain, come November 2012, America will have it’s FIRST Black President all of America can legitimately be proud of.
