    ummmm...marital fidelity, stealing other peoples work and claiming it as his and associating with known communists...but other than that he was good. Definitely a smooth talker.

    Actually, that is not true at all. Many Republicans (A very long list that included both Boehner and Cantor) were contacted and invited, and time was even offered for some of them to speak. Each and every Republican on that list turned down the invitations that were sent to them.

    People are not judged by the spin they give on any issue. They are judged by what they actually do. We, the American people, can judge for ourselves, without people making stuff up for us. We have eyes and ears, and a brain to boot. If the Republican Party truly wants some of the black vote, they are surely going about getting it the wrong way. It's insane.

    You ever read the hate black conservatives get???

    Stacy Dash is a good example..... Hell, how about Tim Scott not invited to speak at the MLK rally???

    Like it or not MLK was a conservative - democrats at that time hated blacks.... Black politicans learned to use blacks later because they were growing in size and represented a large voting block.

    As LBJ said in 1964: "I'll have every nigger voting democrat for the next 100 years."

    Pre-1970 half of blacks voted republican and MLK was certainly a conservative......


    It is not really hate--just disgust mostly... Tim Scott was invited but declined because of a prior commitment.. The 1960s was a time of great change in this country and people voted for the candidate that they thought would be the most beneficial to them and to the country. Most Southern Blacks were Republican, but John F Kennedy brought changes in that arena and Johnson put the icing on the cake.. Democrats in the South were called Dixiecrats and eventually became Republicans...

    You are not going to bait me on this issue, even if X-F told you to do so... Dr. King was for real. He was authentic. He put his life on the line every time he walked out a door.. He was respected by most and feared by many...You really should feel ashamed..

    Well considering he loved prostitutes and plagiarism (among other inconsistencies with his philosophy)......

    I never claimed he didn't practice nonviolence, nor did I claim he didn't participate in nonviolent protests - his speeches could spur a riot tho...

    I'm judging his character not his message....

    Also, peace is only logical to some extent - only if what you're asking for is reasonable. What MLK asked for in his generation was in fact reasonable however, what black folks ask for today IS NOT....

    Don't confuse words with actions or inaction(s)...

    MLK had a good heart and good intentions however the guy was FAR from perfect, yet people treat MLK as the second coming...

    Yes Dr. King was a Southerner and thus a Republican, but his enemies called him a socialist, even a communist...

    Nobody is perfect.. He had a mission and a goal and he stuck to it... I don't know how much of the above is true as that is not what the people were concerned with at the time..
