Posted on 08/28/2013 7:43:06 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe
On Wednesday, Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley, a Democrat who will likely run for president in 2016, said the lives of "people of color" are valued less than those of whites in America.
Speaking on the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech in Washington, O'Malley said there is "too much apathy" in America "when the lives of people of color are too often valued less than the lives of white people."

O'Malley: Abolishing death penalty part of pushing King's vision forward - August 28, 2013 - Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) said that laws abolishing the death penalty, legalizing gay marriage and raising the minimum wage represented the modern "calling of conscience to action" while speaking Wednesday at the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington.
The Maryland Democrat also warned that Americans must allow "no comfort in our country for the bigotry of cold indifference."
yea, bla bla bla...........and you liberals want 60% of black babies aborted.........cry me a river.
What phuquing hypocrites.
This S.O.B. has blood on his hands.
He is a particularly despicable liar.
It's just that we no longer care if they butcher each other.
eff off gov omalley
When the only Black on the NINE SUPREMES, and the only Black US Senator are excluded from the MLK jr Watershed Speech 50 th Anniversary Celebration, it is not difficult to jump to the conclusion that The Black Race Lobby in America is less interested in equality and superior achievement for Blacks than it is interested in excluding Blacks who do not agree with them politically.
If Blacks have become exclusive rather than inclusive toward their own Race, then what chance have any Non-Black Races of working together with Blacks?
Has this Exclude anyone who does not think like you attitude been taught to them by White Democrat Politicians?
Was this tactic used by White Democrat Politicians to return the Blacks to the Plantation Model, where only Da Man tells you what to think?
Dr. Thomas Sowell, Dr. Allen Keyes, Dr. Walter Williams and Dr. Carson are all Black intellectuals of note.
Were any of them invited to the MLK jr Speech Celebration?
If not, why not?
If The Dream in the speech is to become a reality, it must first start with Blacks including Blacks.
This simple first gesture would be a great example to all Races that seek The Dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Junior.
it is true however, that we here in the hinterlands shrug our shoulders reading about the murders in Chicago, black on black, because no matter what we do or say, its either attacked or ignored...
it seems that blacks really don't care about other blacks, that's all I'm saying...
He has a lot of nerve saying that to the victims of Affirmative Action.
Maryland “Freak State” PING!
Please, there was wall-to-wall coverage and outrage over one black teen getting killed by a non-black. Meanwhile, no outrage over whites getting attacked by blacks.
Maybe it’s just time to break down into ethno-states. After all, if whites are so racist then why would “people of color” want us around?

Life is cheap in the inner city - due to the attitude and actions of their fellow ‘bros’.
I live in MD - O’Malley is a putz.
Just ask him how he allowed a gang to run the prison in Baltimore [and he knew all about it].
About a dozen guards are under indictment for working for the gang - one female guard has borne 2 children of the gang leader.
O’Malley is under the delusion that he can be Prez. But, despite his popularity within the state as Guv - 70% believe he would be a lousy Prez ...
Marvin L. Cheatham, the president of the Baltimore Chapter of the NAACP, introduced the resolution because he heard an attorney on a radio program discussing a lack of clarity on succession if Dixon were to be convicted and sentenced.
"Our concern is who would the governor appoint?" Cheatham said. "Here you have a predominantly African-American city. What if the governor appointed somebody white? ... Would he appoint someone Irish to be the mayor?"
“MD Governor: Lives of ‘People of Color’ Valued Less than Whites”
by their own aelves and their own leaders.
Even worse than Obie.
anyone else see a correlation between this statement and the fact “people of color” overwhelmingly vote demoKrat???
"I beg to differ."
True ‘nuff. Blacks hate their own lives worse than whites hate their own lives.
The only time the MSM ever seems to give a crap about the lives of Black people is when they are killed by white people. As long as Black people are killing each other, their lives mean nothing to the MSM or the democrat party.
>> he lives of “people of color” are valued less than those of whites in America.
But the unasked and unanswered question is, “WHO is determining the relative value?”
The answer: blacks.
They abort their babies and kill their own in urban violence at at a rate several times that of non-blacks.
Five-month-old Joshua Summeries of Zion, IL
Was killed by his mother's boyfriend.
Authorities are searching for Joshua's body here.
This is the crap I am stuck with here in Maryland, a single state party.
Who in GOP counters these themes?
I think he’s racist to believe this.
Let’s properly edit this...
“The lives of ignorant hateful people of violence and a separatist ghetto mentality are valued less than those of civilized people of all races in America.
There, that’s better.
A top contender for “Worst Governor”.
The other nominees are, Pat Quinn (IL), Dan Miloy (CT), Moonbeam Brown (CA), Deval Patrick (MA) and Lincoln Chafee (RI).
And the Oscar goes to......
Did Martin O’Malley explain why blacks value their lives less than whites value theirs?
The guy sounds to me like a bona fide racist.
Didn’t take long for Marty to wear his kneepads out
Great post and great questions. Just where were the achievers anyway? Oh wait, they’re conservatives! But yeah, bring on Bastard Al and his ignorant racist rants. No wonder kids are destined for crap lives with this sort of “leadership”
Grow up and get lost losers
Well I am glad that Governor OMalley had the temerity to stand before the people of color and state the undeniable fact that that there is too much apathy in America when the lives of people of color are too often valued less than the lives of white people."
And it is especially appropriate that he said this to the people that show the most apathy where the lives of people are concerned and the people that can do the most to change that fact namely people of color themselves.
When you consider that people of color have the highest abortion rates in this country, that people of color have the highest illiteracy rates in this country, that people of color have the highest murder rates in this country, that people of color have the highest incarceration rates in this country and that people of color have the highest high school drop out rates in this country who but the people of color have the power to change these facts for the better?
But the apathy of the leadership of people of color seems to be set in stone. Black leaders such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson rarely ever mention things such as black on black crime, the high abortion rate for people of color or the high rate of illegitimate births for people of color.
If so called Black Leaders do not speak of these problems in the black community and urge people of color to change their behavior on these matters does this demonstrate apathy on their part or does it indicate that they are satisfied with the situation as it is?
When Black Leaders blame failing public school systems for the illiteracy rates in the black communities and yet black parents fail to ensure that their children do their home work; is it the school that is failing or the black community? When the high school graduation rates in black community school is abysmally low is it the fault of the school or the fault of black parents to even make their children attend school?
If there is apathy in this country about the lives of people of color I would suggest that the apathy is most prominent in the black community because the responsibility for changing the life of anyone lies first and foremost with that with that individual.
If a community wishes to improve its lot who better to make those changes but that community its self?
If a community needs to change who better to lead that change but the accepted leaders of that community?
Until the black community accepts that the root of their deplorable condition lies in their own community and that root is imbedded in their culture they will remain imbedded in the squalor the death spiral of their community will continue. Personal responsibility for ones own future is the only way that anyone can ever improve their lot.
I hate this state.
Welcome to OweMalleyLand.
“What’s in your wallet?”
THERE IS NOTHING IN THE WORLD MORE RACIST THAN A LIBERAL DEMOCRAT... NOTHING!
Aw, how sweet. Little Marty Owe'Malley is practicing his Big Important Presidential Sound Bites!
Pardon me while I go wretch!
The proof is undeniable. It's 'people of color' who overwhelmingly kill each other - be it at the end of a gun or the end of a cannula.
Mr. Mayor, it isn’t white people that are killing all those blacks. Guess the blacks think just like you.
Black lives are valued less by the Democrat Party, President Obama (1st act was to destroy the voucher program in DC), progressives, and all of the progressive/liberal media.
Republicans and whites have been driven out of commenting on the condition of Black America, as every commenter is denounced as racist. This has gone on so long, that there's almost no one left, and no one in public office willing to be denounced in order to try to do something to improve the lives of Black Americans.
The Media ignores the slaughter of Blacks in our major cities, because it's apparently not news when Blacks murder Blacks. Doesn't fit the template.
That doesn't stop others from noticing.
At the Federal Level, the GOP are almost all cowards and they couldn't communicate their way out of a wet paper bag. They lead with their fear. Not a pretty sight.
” The GOP can’t counter anything, since their normal position is the fetal position in the corner.
At the Federal Level, the GOP are almost all cowards and they couldn’t communicate their way out of a wet paper bag. They lead with their fear. Not a pretty sight. “
That FEAR must be being called a racist. What else could it be? This type of cowardice is beyond the pale. We won’t stand up to Obama on anything whatsoever.
Talk is cheap in politics. Even “Romneycare” Romney claimed to be “seriously Conservative” when he was Gov. of Mass.
My Litmus test for whether or not one is a “Conservative” is found in the person’s answer to the following question:
“IF YOU CLAIM TO BE A CONSERVATIVE, THEN WHAT ARE THE TOP TEN THINGS THAT YOU WANT TO CONSERVE FOR YOUR GRANDCHILDREN’S DESCENDANTS?”
Who is “we”? We stand up, we demand action, but the GOP cowards do almost nothing and what they do do, is ineffectual. They’re not down for the struggle.
