Skip to comments.Betrayal of Dr. King: Traitorous Blacks Abandoned His Dream
Posted on 06/14/2014 8:49:55 AM PDT by kingattax
Sipping a hot cup of unsweetened green tea at 3am, I felt compelled to revisit Dr Martin Luther King, Jrs I Have a Dream speech on the internet. These excerpts leaped out at me.
And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of interposition and nullification one day right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.
Wow, what a remarkable dignified, unifying and patriotic speech. My dad and I were there, August 28, 1963, at the Lincoln Memorial, Washington DC. There were yellow school buses parked as far as I could see. The mood of the sea of mostly black faces was happy, peaceful and orderly. As a black kid, Dr King was like nothing I had ever seen before, his voice bigger than life filling the mall; a black man boldly, articulately and eloquently addressing white America on our behalf. I was in total awe of him. What I heard that day was a message rooted in Christian love; a call for mutual respect and citizens of all races coming together as Americans.

Dr. King’s dream was achieved when we passed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and the Fair Housing Act of 1968, among others.
The problems of black America today have nothing to do with discrimination. Down in the ghetto, all this gang activity, and all the baby mama stuff going on, is not due to discrimination. All of those people involved have their equal rights under the law. The life choices they made to get them into bad circumstances have nothing to do with discrimination.
While King had his foibles, as do all, he lived what he preached. “content of character” is everything!
Couldn't agree more. They make their bad choices as do other races and ethnic groups. However, they are highly influenced by one thing the other races don't have - the perpetual race baiters that tell them they are owed. To paraphrase, "tell the lie long enough and people believe".
These children have grown up and now I hear some of them talking about the coming revolution.
the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together and wait One Week....In the Open Air...to get thier New Air Jordans!!
It is simple:
The urban cultural is a regrssion to tribalism. Crips, Bloods, Southside, Westside and to a small extent, the “law-abiders”.
I spoke with an older black well educated black man who believes that also, he said it had already started. He did not believe in it and thinks it is shameful.
Look at the people MLK surrounded himself with, and his personal history. They are a reflection of the person. I don’t understand all this idol worshiping of MLK on FR...
Funny how the modern-day race baiters conveniently ignore that ‘content of character’ part. For them, skin color trumps all.
If a black person today gave that same speech, they’d be labelled as an “Uncle Tom” or an “Oreo.”
the mindless obama zombies and the racist true blue “progressives” may not LIKE THIS ..but Obama is in FACT...our first Oreo President
Half Black... Half White Trash.
From “I have a dream” to “I have a scam.”
From Black Vision to Black Privilege.
And from moral credibility to moral turpitude.
The history of the black civil rights movement in America.
Actually, many black conservatives quote that "character/content" part of his speech, and yes, they are labelled as not truly black. Our own Resident and attorney general have put us back at least 20 years of racial harmony advancement, not to mention Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Sheila Jackson Lee, Maxine Waters, the Black Caucus, et al.
What really pisses me, is that Obambi and Holder are half white...Holder probably more so. Being of mixed race, you would think they would be more neutral, forgiving, and promoting "character/content". No, Obambi says "...Trayvon son thing" and Holder says "...his people" as in blacks and refused to prosecute the New Black Panthers armed intimidation at a polling location.
The whole race/ethnic issue makes me sad. Spending 11 years in the Navy, I had friends of all races and ethnicity. Only saw them as equal shipmates. I truly didn't see ANY difference due to skin melatonin. Now, I'm getting biased.
“The life choices they made to get them into bad circumstances have nothing to do with discrimination.”
Right...and those “choices” were aided, abetted, and, in fact, _encouraged and guided_ by liberal thinking.
