    Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer David J. Garrow, an authority on Martin Luther King Jr., offered his explosive story on King to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and reportedly to other U.S. publications before it was published in Great Britain. The AJC turned down Garrow’s offer. The piece, which reveals new sexual allegations against the civil rights icon, was published in Standpoint, a United Kingdom-based cultural and political magazine.It was also offered to The Atlantic and The Washington Post, according to Standpoint.The AJC declined to run the piece because it was based on information that would in some cases be impossible to independently verify,...

    Those who fan the flames of divisiveness and disunity within this nation, do not rest on the foundation of Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy In the wake of the day designated to honor the contributions of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., intelligent Americans can wonder about the legacy of this incredible man of God. And, the embattled political spheres demonstrated they are not prepared to see the same vision as Dr. King. Even if only the “I Have a Dream” speech at the Lincoln Memorial is used as a measuring stick, one can understand the words and intent that...

    On Sunday's MSNBC Live with Alex Witt, after panelist Jennifer Grossman invoked Martin Luther King's historic "content of their character" statement, TV One journalist Roland Martin, in a demanding tone, requested a "favor": "Please don’t quote Dr. King." Apparently in Martin's world, only a black person like him can quote King, while a white person like Grossman can't. To her credit, Grossman pushed back hard: "I will quote Dr. Martin Luther king every single day and you won’t stop me."

    [...] The Disneyified version of Dr King begins and ends with his role as a civil rights leader, who summoned Christian teachings, as well as Gandhian tactics, and told us of his dream that “one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.’” [...] Martin Luther King Jr was a part of a much wider movement, standing alongside socialists such as Ella Baker, Bayard Rustin, and A Philip Randolph in not just attempting to dismantle the Jim Crow system, but...

    Full title: Things get hot when a white panelist is told not to quote Martin Luther King: I will ‘every single day. And you won’t stop me’ TV One host Roland Martin was quickly put in his place by fellow panelist Jennifer Grossman on Easter Sunday during a discussion about diversity among White House interns under President Donald Trump. MSNBC’s “Live with Alex Witt” did a segment on the police shooting last week of an unarmed black man in California when the host decided to pivot to President Trump, noting a lack of diversity amid White House interns. Witt compared...

    King was for integration Today liberals write essays on how they don't want their black children to play with white children, There are slews of colleges and high schools offering seperate graduation ceremonies, school meetings, and dormitories based on race. King was for a society where merit is judged not skin color Leftists today openly disparage colorblindness. Put the words "color blindness is racism" in a search engine and you will see dozens of articles disparaging the idea of treating people according to character, instead of race The left doesn't want colorblindness they want color consciousness and systems that give...
  • The Liberal Abandonment of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

    01/14/2018 9:53:38 AM PST · by Cubs Fan · 30 replies
    Liberals will pay lip service to Dr. King. But the hard fact is that the American Left has long since abandoned Dr. King. (In Kings I have a dream speech he gave) A salute to the Declaration of Independence. To the Constitution. And most critically, the demand “that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” Sadly, the American Left believes none of this today. The poison of identity politics is merely the modern version of the segregation...

    At the 32nd Annual State of Minnesota Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration in St. Paul, Gov. Mark Dayton discussed the need for more progress in combating racism. This year's theme for the ceremony, held at the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts in St. Paul, was based on a statement the activist once made: "Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'" State Rep. Ilhan Omar (DFL) and St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter both served as keynote speakers. During the ceremony, Dayton expressed his concerns that indecency was gaining the upper hand. "Here in...

    California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters celebrated Martin Luther King Jr Day by claiming the civil rights leader would have encouraged people to march for the impeachment of President Trump. “If MLK was alive today, he’d be marching not only for civil rights & protecting voting rights, but to urge Members of Congress to accept their responsibility to save the U.S. from a dangerous man who has no respect for our Constitution & no concern for strengthening our democracy,” Waters wrote on Twitter on Monday.

    This doesn’t seem random … NY Times full-bore … Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. To celebrate the day, over the long weekend the New York Times dedicated not one, not two, but three pieces to declaring President Donald Trump a racist. First up we have “Donald Trump’s racism: The definitive list.” Then there’s Charles M. Blow’s piece, “Trump is a racist. Period.” This piece has the helpful URL “trump-racist-shithole.” Then there’s “The heartbeat of racism is denial.” The last one is great: If you deny you are a racist, it means you are one. Flake-out … When Josef...

    A CNN piece published Monday heralded Martin Luther King Jr.'s views on issues beyond civil rights, including his support for democratic socialism. CNN's John Blake wrote about "Three ways MLK speaks to our time," published as a straight news article rather than an opinion piece. Blake wrote that on the holiday honoring his legacy, King's commitment to socialism, role as an "environmental hero," and congeniality towards his opponents ought to be considered alongside his racial advocacy.

    Martin Luther King Papers Project ^ | September 30, 1962 | Martin Luther King Jr.
    Now, let us begin by answering the question which our sermon topic raises: Can a Christian be a communist? I answer that question with an emphatic “no.” These two philosophies are diametrically opposed. The basic philosophy of Christianity is unalterably opposed to the basic philosophy of communism, and all of the dialectics of the logician cannot make them lie down together. They are contrary philosophies. Now, there are at least three reasons why I feel obligated as a Christian minister to talk to you about communism. The first reason grows out of the fact that communism is having widespread influence...

    MLK Institute ^ | November 13, 1958 | Martin Luther King Jr.
    In the coming period when travel to the Soviet Union is more usual, I believe the American people will expect committed leaders to get information by serious personal inquiry rather than to rely upon secondary sources. Among some of the more specific lines of inquiry I wish to pursue are those which would illuminate the reasons for the continued existence of religious conviction among millions of Soviet citizens, all of whom have been subjected to varying degrees of oppression and discouragement by powerful agencies of propaganda and anti-religious education. This tenacity to spiritual commitment is worthy of careful study for...

    In 1964, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. appeared on a BBC news show. The host asked King about Attorney General Robert Kennedy's prediction, an audacious one at the time, that a black man could be elected president in 40 years. King thought it would not take that long: "There are certain problems and prejudices and mores in our society which make it difficult now. However, I am very optimistic about the future. Frankly, I have seen certain changes in the United States over the last two years that surprise me. ... On the basis of this, I think we may...

    Historians have known for many years that civil rights icon Martin Luther King had been unfaithful to his wife. But now, David Garrow, who won a Pulitzer Prize in 1987 for his biography of King, has unearthed previously classified FBI documents showing that King was genuinely sexually depraved. From the Times of London (behind subscriber paywall): A huge archive of documents recently released from Federal Bureau of Investigation files exposes in detail King’s sexual activities with dozens of women as he travelled the country campaigning against racial inequality...

    Secret FBI tapes that accuse Martin Luther King Jr of having extramarital affairs with '40 to 45 women' and even claim he 'looked on and laughed' as a pastor friend raped a parishioner, exist an author has claimed. The civil rights hero was also heard allegedly joking he was the founder of the 'International Association for the Advancement of P***y-Eaters'. The shocking files could lead to a 'painful historical reckoning' for the man who is celebrated across the world for his campaign against racial injustice, according to one biographer. The FBI surveillance tapes detailing his indiscretions are being held in...

    Thoughts on David Garrow’s new book, Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama Although we haven’t spoken in years, Garrow and I became friends in the later 1990s when I was a graduate student and he was a professor at Emory University. I was also at the time a Democratic state lobbyist, nonprofit director, and community organizer. We socialized: he is a gracious host. I took no classes from him, but I read his books and his scholarly articles, and his door was always open to me. David Garrow taught me a great deal about what it takes to be...
