Alveda King: Sharpton, Jackson should stop playing race card over Trayvon Martin [MLK's niece]
Daily Caller ^ | 3/28/12 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 03/28/2012 11:27:02 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece is criticizing the Rev. Al Sharpton and the Rev. Jesse Jackson for politicizing the Trayvon Martin shooting and leveraging racial tensions to rile up Americans.

Conservative activist Dr. Alveda King, now the director of African-American outreach at Priests for Life and the founder of King For America, said she hopes Sharpton and Jackson stop “stirring up the people without positive solutions” in Sanford, Fla., and elsewhere in the U.S.

I believe that if Dr. King could see what is going on today, he would be shocked, very sad about it.

It is nice to see that a member of his family seems to share that view.

King himself would have put an end to a nation holiday honoring him.

Those who think racism still exists today, are right. And they are for the most part the major racists.

Sharpton’s on a roll...all he wants is the audiance as he believes himself important and worthy of being heard and seen...He’s planning on a march in Sanford over Easter Week-end to “pray for the arrest of Zimmerman”.

BTW He isn’t a Pastor by any means of the word Reverand.

Yes, but if Al and Jesse stopped playing the race card, they would starve to death....

Maxine Waters Calls Shooting ‘Hate Crime’—without knowing all the evidence.

Waters, Jackson, Sharpton,Lee, and the pre-sent should all be charged with ‘hate crime’, by instigating violence. They could have nipped this in the bud and went for “united’ instead of ‘divided’.

Finally someone with a brain.

She’s showing the world what a decent person would do, and denouncing the race baiting lynch mob that has been playing this event like a cheap violin.

She does her father proud.

Yes Bless her, but she is on the wrong side according to the racebaters and her voice and reasoning will not make it down to those who should be listening to her wisdom!

Ya, I thought she was considered a traitor by the liberals.

Among other crimes, she is pro-life. And, she was a participant in the Glenn Beck rally at the Lincoln Memorial. According to the liberals, the Glenn Beck event beschmirched the memory of Martin Luther King, and here we saw his niece in that rally!! How shameful it was in the liberals view!

Good for Dr. King.

She needs to remind the race pimping reverends of this quote from 101 years ago.

Still true:

There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.

~~Booker T. Washington

MLK would never support the fascist method of lies and deceit to rile the masses and street gangs toward civil war.

Get in their faces ! ( This is Obama led initiative.)

Obama will make the nation pay if he is not re-elected.

Who says we should pay the price? I do. Certainly 60 or 70 millions of Americans do, the number grows every day.

Just let this POS president
try to intimidate America into electing him! BRING IT!

Dr. Alveda King has a long track record of Conservative stances and fighting race-baiting by the left.

I think the only reason she has not been run out on a rail by the leftists is due to her relationship with MLK, both by blood and her personal interaction with him when he was alive. That real relationship gives her tremendous credibility when she says "Dr. ML King would/wouldn't ...".

She has used the protection her name affords her for good and with great success. She deserves our continuous prayers for support.

Dr. King, I would love to see that, too, but you know the chances of that happening is the same as Mitt ROMNEY quitting the GOP RACe and endorse Rick Santorium and Sarah Palin as VP.

If Sharpton and Jackson were ever shut up, you might have to bury them, because they'd be dead...
