Fifty Years After His Speech: What Would MLK Say?

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

( My brother attended the red carpet premiere of his wife’s first big screen acting role at a Baltimore movie theater. Forced to park blocks away in the hood, after the movie my brother asked a friend to drive him back to his car rather than risk walking.

My brother said Baltimore black youths are out-of-control and extremely aggressive. He said if George Zimmerman was on one street corner and black youths were on the other, he would choose to walk past Zimmerman. “I’m not afraid of Zimmerman. I’m afraid of us!”

Our conversation came on the heels of the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington where Dr Martin Luther King, Jr delivered his historic remarkably inspiring, “I Have a Dream” speech.

As expected, the Race Industry is exploiting the 50th anniversary the samemartin-luther-king-jr way they exploit Black History Month every year to further their false narratives that race relations in America have progressed very little since the 1950s, white America is eternally racist and more entitlement programs, government freebies and lowered standards are needed to give blacks a fair shot at the American dream.

I had a dream. MLK and I met for lunch. Though a bit star struck in the presence of an American icon, I brought the eager to know Dr. King up to date on black America’s progress since his tragic departure.

Black out-of-wedlock births are over 70%, three times the level of your day sir.

The new normal in the black community is “baby daddy” rather than husband and father.

Murder rates for blacks are up to 8,000 to 9,000 per year in America; 93% perpetrated by other blacks. Why are we killing each other? Some say it’s the white man’s fault.

Yes, Dr. King, your memory is correct. Black poverty was on the decline. But in 1965 Democrat president Lyndon Johnson launched his so-called War on Poverty which destroyed the black family by government replacing fathers in black households; resulting in black poverty increasing ever since.

Did I tell you about the epidemic of black youths dropping out of school? Considering that high school is free, I do not know why blacks are not completing high school. Black so-called advocates (the Race Industry) say it’s white America’s fault. I agree with you sir, their accusation makes no sense to me either.

Dr. King your mastery of the English language is somewhat frowned upon today. Some would accuse you of trying to be white. Using gangsta rapper terms such as “creepy ass cracka” and “nigga” is celebrated as down-for-the-struggle authentic blackness in America. No sir, I said, “gangsta” not “gangster”. Its a cultural thing.

Dr. King you won’t believe it, but America elected its first black president. No, not Jesse. The bad news is under president Obama, black unemployment has risen to unprecedented levels.

Oh, remember that thing you said in your speech about dreaming of a day when people would be judged by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin? Democrats threw that idea out the window a long time ago.

Democrats and the Race Industry learned that if they can make every political issue about race or skin-color, they win every time because nothing scares whites more than being accused of racism.

Well sir, not much is being done to rectify the issues plaguing black America. Black conservatives such as myself who call for blacks to rely less on government and to accept responsibility for their lives are shouted down and called Uncle Tom sellouts.

Since you’ve been gone, Democrats have owned the black vote (well over 90%). Democrats continue to lower standards and expectations for blacks, offer more entitlements and promise to keep mythical evil racist white conservative Republicans at bay.

Dr. King, is there something in your eye? No need to apologize sir. I share your pain.

    MLK’s dream is alive as demonstrated in the hearts and lives of millions of people around the World. Civil Rights Leaders are not confused it’s just that seeing the patient well is of no benefit to them.

    If Martin was alive today he would say “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is what are you doing for others” because in order to advance a beloved community we must personally try to be positive leaders instead of waiting on the right thing to be done by Civil Rights Leaders.

    gun. No doubt to encourage black children, especially males, to use weapons or supply them w/ weapons. Panthers have been doing this shit since the 60’s. They haven’t grown up and grown out of being nigger-ish. I have a gut feeling that the gov’t has a plan up its sleeve. Something that’s gonna deal w/ these panthers and their hair-trigger tempers and attitude.

    So its clear that MLK’s dream has turned into a nightmare. His non-violent has been squashed to smithereens. And the remaining so-called leaders are just as confused as they were during the 60’s and 70’s. Yeah, I sometimes wonder myself, “What would Martin say?” But all I can do is wonder b/c he’s not here to here to answer the question.

    @curious….Don’t know if you noticed lately but there’s been a very high % of violence in the world. Especially among the black race. And so-called black leaders aren’t doing a damn thing about the daily violence caused by violent blacks. Martin’s non-violence message has been twisted. Its operating in reverse b/c these violent thuggish hoodlums don’t even recognize that their behavior and actions are violent. Black life as they view it is a cheap commodity. A thing as a heart beating means absolutely nothing to them.

    Situations like the Trayvon Martin case give young black boys the impression that a Hispanic/white man killing a young black male IN SELF-DEFENSE is way more horrific than young/older black males killing each other. It has to be b/c look at the national attention so-called black leaders/organizations are getting from it. People who didn’t even know Trayvon or lived in the same city held rallies for him. Jesse and them love giving people who love to riot/rally a reason to rally/riot. Any reason will do. Playing w/ people’s emotions is their specialty. It does more hatm than good.

    Black-on-white crimes are now taking place from coast to coast. Black males are assaulting non-blacks then declaring, “This is for Trayvon!” Not only is it UNCIVIL, wrong, and against the law but this violent will lead these offenders to jail or the grave. What would MLK say? Would he confront the problem like Jesse, Al, and the Panthers?

    Speaking of Panthers, they not only put a $10,000 bounty out on Zimmerman but they’ve threatened to burn down white neighborhoods. That doesn’t sound like they’re even considering a non-violent approach. Panthers are filled to the brim w/ hatred and misery.

    The national leader’s incarcerated on weapons charges. King Samir Shabazz’s bail was set at $75,000. A King w/ no country nor money to post bail. He was on his way to a Youth Rally in Harlem when law enforcement discovered him carrying an unlicensed

    In the early 80s I was all of 18 years old ready to conquer the World through MLK’s message of nonviolence and beloved community when out the clear blue my then boyfriend felt the need to enlighten me about MLK just as you have posted. What my boyfriend failed to understand is that if he and others like him spent more time spreading MLK’s principles of nonviolence to achieve equality for all which ultimately transcends into a beloved community and less time tearing down MLK the World would be a much better place.

    Anyone who holds the notion that man born of a woman can be perfect is naive even though MLK did deliver “I Have A Dream” with perfection, more importantly, he INSPIRED people from all walks of life and ethnicity to come together in the name of brotherhood to TRY to make this World a better place for all of mankind which is the attribute of a GREAT leader and the reason why Malcom X respected King and Anne Moody continues to teach MLK’s principles of nonviolence to this day.

    Nothing beats a failure but a TRY and we should try to practice the King Philosophy in our lives by using his principles of nonviolence to transcend into a beloved community.

  5. toomanygrandkids says:

    most of their money with others b/c blacks have no choice. Spending money outside of the black community started with the civil rights movement. Not spending money among your own people started with the civil rights movement. When a black business does open up, the owner has to deal w/ so many problems caused by his own people. They want something, anything for free. They want credit even though they may have bad credit. Then to add insult to injury, the black business isn’t as good as other non-black businesses.

    Then there’s the rich drug dealer who’s business is a front for drug activities. I’m not wasting my time.

    Truth is, Martin would be sad, confused, and disappointed if he were alive today. I believe all of them are. Thank God, there are black men who disagree with the teachings of the movement. But they don’t have enough black people backing them up.

    Louder and stronger voices are needed to say “ENOUGH ALREADY!

    Its not so much whites, the gov’t, and racism thats the problem. Hasn’t been for a long time now.

    It’s not only young black males (and females) but older black males (and females) who encourage such violent and criminal behavior. Dads and moms are against anything positive or productive that doesn’t have something to do w/ making lots of quick, fast cash. They are called niggers/niggas and hood rats. They are the black people’s problem. What would Martin say about them?

  6. toomanygrandkids says:

    has the mentality of a gang banger. And a slick, smooth operator. He’s been scamming corporations out of big-time money for years. Anyway, the gang/criminal mentality hasn’t left Jesse. How would Martin feel about the lives of Jesse and Al if he were alive today? Would they even be friends? Jesse wrote a book titled Its All About The Money. Who’s money is he talking about? Surely, not black people’s money. Any economic power we had before the civil rights movement and after Martin’s untimely death has been destroyed b/c blacks were discouraged from spending money with each other. Civil rights leaders and activists lead blacks and their money to white-owned establishments claiming that whites could build houses (and other buildings) better, faster, and cheaper. Supposedly, black men’s needs were gonna be taken care of. Thats not how it has worked out. How would Martin react to the chaos thats been going on among the black race? We have to remember that when Martin passed, there were riots in many major cities. People went crazy and out of control not only b/c he was gone but that movement played on the emotions of black people. His spoke of a “pie in the sky” dream. Follow the leaders and do as they say, and your life will be fulfilled. Not hardly. What we didn’t know (but eventually would find out) was that leaders and activists were playing games and breaking the law. This movement should’ve about more than sitting at the back of the bus. How about learning how to build buses. Owning/Operating a bus company? What’s the harm in owning grocery, clothing, shoe, and department stores? At least black people wouldn’t be angry and jealous of the Chinese and Koreans who own/operate stores in black communities. And wonder how did they do it? My guess would be unity, money, and hard work. The majority of blacks are lazy, complain too much, and are greedy for money. Blacks accuse whites and other nationalities of being capitalists yet they spend

    the next crook. I’m not sure how Martin would be perceived today. He’s not here. But in 1968 when Coretta was lying in a hospital recovering from surgery for a tumor, Martin confesses to her that he deeply cared for a mistress who meant most to him since 1963. This affair had the intensity of a second marriage. Many people within his circle criticized Martin for disclosing such a thing to his wife while she was in a vulnerable state. He wanted a nation to judge his children by the content of their character. Was confessing to an affair at the time of his wife’s recovery in good character? What would have Martin said if someone asked him about that?

    Just like the rest of these leaders, he probably would’ve apologized and his life would’ve went back to being normal. I believe we are holding black leaders on too-high of a pedestal. We want so badly for them to be perfect and have all the answers, but evidence shows us that they don’t even have much discipline, restraint, or leadership in their own lives.

    Thats why there’s such a deafening silence concerning the day-to-day murders in black communities. How can black leaders talk to/lecture black males/men face-to-face when the leaders won’t speak to them face-to-face? What would Martin say to them? Hopefully way more than Jesse or Al. I do agree with former NAACP leader Pastor C.L. Bryant. He said, “The rallies organized by Al and Jesse for Trayvon Martin suggest there’s an epidemic of whites men killing young black men,” adding: “The epidemic is truly black on black crime. The greatest danger to the lives of young black men are young black men.”
    The NAACP, Jesse, Al, and other black activists should have faced this epidemic head-on years and years ago. Instead of making excuses for black people’s behavior. But Jesse not gonna have no parts of telling unruly blacks to stop acting like savages. Jesse (and his half-brother Noah) were associated with the El Rukn gang in Chicago so Jesse

    whites, racism, nor the gov’t. Actually, black people became poorer because we needed to depend on each other (and leaders) for guidance and support within our communities. Whites nor the gov’t are qualified to monitor all of us on a daily basis. Racism existed long before the 60’s and it still exist today. Its not going anywhere. Nobody’s/No group’s powerful enough to wipe out racism or hatred b/c it exists in the minds and hearts of people.

    Racism-a belief that some races are by nature superior to others. Also discrimination based on such belief. Nowhere in this definition does it mention specific races. But you could insert “a belief that blacks/AA’s are by nature superior than/to other(races).

    Racist-a person/group of people who feel as though their race is superior.

    These really aren’t bad, shameful words b/c there’s nothing wrong with being superior. It doesn’t always mean King (of a country), President, or Superman. It could mean someone having a great/superior work ethnic. Anything from creating employment in the black community to having/keeping a job. Civil rights leaders and activist felt that the ONLY jobs blacks needed had to be given by whites or the gov’t. What about black men who were/are qualified to own/operate a legit business? As long as they abide by the rules and reguations, wouldn’t he be considered superior as in having the ability to hire/train employees, filling out necessary paperwork, being able to get along with employees and customers, etc. Values such as these can’t be instilled by the so-called racist gov’t or whites.

    Truth is, Martin would be sad, disappointed, confused as to why this movement wasn’t fulfilling to black people as a whole. There weren’t enough people who voiced any objections or questions. For many years, blacks have been let down by leaders and their dreams and false promises. You wanna know why? Because black leaders are not superior at everything. They are just as crooked as

  9. toomanygrandkids says:

    whites, cops or citizens, to pulverize them. But it can’t be called racism. No, no. That was civil rights activist leading their own people into being injured and jailed. In reality, this type of illogic turned black men into wimpy cowards against so-called enemies. Didn’t actual slaves endure this type of treatment?

    Not everyone shared Martin’s dream: One Anne Mood recalls, “I sat on the grass and listened to the speakers to discover we had dreamers instead of leaders leading us. Martin went on and on talking about his dream. I sat there thinking that in Canton, Mississippi, we never had time to sleep much less to dream.”

    I wasn’t but a child in the 60’s but after becoming an adult, I realized there were somethings I couldn’t help but notice about this movement. It lasted for 20-25 years. In all that time, no one recognized the criminal/bad element lurking in the backyards of the black community. What would Martin say? If he was here today, Martin would’ve/should’ve realized/confessed that some of those years should’ve spent spent teaching black people how beneficial it would be for them to be self-sufficient instead of convincing them that his non-violent approach would benefit them. In 1963 Martin wrote, “We shall be able to oppose the ujust system and at the same time love the perpretrators of the system.” Really? This strategy of non-violence came under increasing strain as white resistance stiffened. That’s not a surprise. The civil rights movement granted whites to assault people who weren’t even fighting back or protecting themselves. Doesn’t that sound self-humiliating, Martin? I don’t agree 100% with what black leaders say or how they act but I do agree with Malcolm when he said, “While they (black leaders) are dreaming, our people are living a nightmare.” I could say the same about Malcolm’s followers.

    Unfortunately, the majority of our so-called leaders refuse to address more pressing issues than have nothing to do with

    @curious…I apologize for being late responding to your ?.

    My conversation with Martin (or any civil rights activist) would’ve been different. As far as my post: If Martin was alive today, how would he explain interacting w/ Communists, plagarizing not only his college papers but his I Have A Dream speech, and soliciting prostitutes using church funds and donation money? Could he handle the scrutiny? In the public eye, Martin’s known as a non-violent, peaceful man but privately he displayed a totally different character. Most likely, Martin would’nt’ve done too much of anything about the:

    1.) Black out of wedlock births. How can any so-called leader control anybody’s sexual activity when sex wasn’t even a topic of discussion back then. Actually its been reported that years of marching and sexual relations sapped the energy out of the civil rights movement.

    2.) Black-on-black crime. What are the activist doing about it today? Nothing! They should’ve addressed this in the 60’s and 70’s. But for some reason, it must not’ve been all that important. Instead, black men considered it racist to get put in jail b/c they got caught committing crimes. Martin and the rest of them placed black people in dangerous situations so as to get locked up. One civil rights activist stated that he’d been in jail 44 times. C’MON, SON! What good his a man to his woman/wife, children, and community if he’s behind bars 44 times? Those involved in this movement spent too many years NOT addressing the internal problems in the black community with the black community.

    Its been posted on this forum that “our” leaders were not perfect, that they tried their best, and we are aware that they didn’t have the answers to all of our problems.

    “We must say to our white brothers all over the South who try to keep us down: we will match your capacity to inflict suffering with our capacity to endure suffering.” That definitely explains why so many black people ALLOWED
