    You mean he "judged their color"?

    Nope, but it speaks to the question of how King would view or in this case, viewed Sanger.

    He actually expected blacks to work for a living unlike Jackson, Sharpton and Obama.

    Doubtful, his wife accepted the award.

    Should probably read the link more thoroughly. King both authored the quoted comments and a later letter echoing the same sentiments. For good measure:

    Words are inadequate for me to say how honored I was to be the recipient of the Margaret Sanger Award. This award will remain among my most cherished possessions. While I cannot claim to be worthy of such a signal honor, I can assure you that I accept it with deep humility and sincere gratitude. Such a wonderful expression of support is of inestimable value for the continuance of my humble efforts.

    Again let me say how much I regret that at the last minute urgent developments in the civil rights movement made it impossible for me to be in Washington to personally receive the award. My wife brought glowing echoes of the wonderful reception and impressiveness of the total occasion.

    I am happy to be the recipient of the Margaret Sanger Award and I can assure you that this distinct honor will cause me to work even harder for a reign of justice and a rule of love all over our nation.

    Sincerely yours,

    Martin Luther King Jr.

    Must be it. Organizing an event memorializing Dr. King is the perfect cover.

    Not a single pro-abortion word in there.
