    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... – Martin Luther King It’s Martin Luther King Day, and all across the land people are once again expressing outrage over the lack of diversity in this year’s Oscar nominees. It’s like 2015, the first time Hollywood people of color protested #OscarsSoWhite. 2015: Obama joined David Oyelowo, who portrayed Martin Luther King Jr. in the movie "Selma," and Oprah, who produced the film, in protest against...

    Welcome to the weekend. I come here humbled by the fact that I have been in error and have made mistakes. I am less than perfect, I am less than a Deity. My background is in religious conservatism praying a prayer of "salvation" saying words I had yet to comprehend when I was 13, coming out of being an Anti-Semite which is a hot topic today. A friend of mine approached me last week noting efforts to combat Anti-Semitism in the community and my libertarian radar is up sensing the endgame will be less freedom in this country. In Virginia...

    KANSAS CITY, MO (AP) — Kansas City voters on Tuesday overwhelmingly approved removing Dr. Martin Luther King's name from one of the city's most historic boulevards, less than a year after the city council decided to rename The Paseo for the civil rights icon. Unofficial results vote showed the proposal to remove King's name received nearly 70% of the vote, with just over 30% voting to retain King's name. The debate over the name of the 10-mile boulevard on the city's mostly black east side began shortly after the council's decision in January to rename The Paseo for King. Civil...

    Emotions that simmered for nearly a year over the renaming of a historic major thoroughfare in Kansas City, Missouri, for the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. led to a tense scene at a black church as get-out-the vote efforts wound down ahead of residents going to the polls. About 100 supporters of keeping the King name for the 10-mile (16.1-kilometer) boulevard were at a rally to court voters Sunday when opponents walked into the Paseo Baptist Church and stood along its two aisles. Those against the King name stood silently and did not respond to calls for them to sit...

    This Wednesday marks the 56th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s iconic “I Have a Dream” speech. It was as historic as it was inspiring for all Americans to look to a future where our society would be one. While there’s certainly more work to be done on that front, there’s much to celebrate today about the great new opportunities for black Americans to achieve the American dream. I know that my uncle would have been proud of everything that President Trump has done to make those opportunities possible for our community. For instance, for the past two and...

    Beto O'Rourke, Woke Why did the Civil Rights movement succeed? It might have failed. In the U.S., unlike in South Africa, black Americans didn’t make up a huge, oppressed majority. They constituted just 11 percent of the population. Nor did they wield proportionate economic power — the heritage of slavery and Jim Crow had seen to that. They weren’t well-armed. Gun control laws, which always disarm the most helpless, had made quite sure of that. The militant approach favored by Malcolm X, and later the Black Panthers, certainly frightened white people. But it could have just as easily provoked...

    During a campaign event in Urbandale, Iowa, Tuesday, Democratic gaffe-machine Joe Biden mistakenly asserted that Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. were “assassinated in the ‘70s -- late 70s.” Both men, of course, were assassinated in 1968. Making matters worse, the Dem frontrunner went on to suggest that women don't know anything about the hippy subculture of the sixties, but he was happy to mansplain it to them. "Up until that time -- remember -- none of you women would know this, but a couple of men may remember -- that was a time in the early and...

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 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,...

    [...] 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...

    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...

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.
