    That's really interesting. I was under the understanding Hoover's FBI files on him were sealed for 100 years by federal court order.

    Because Democrats hate black people.

    After doing some quick online verification, it looks like you're right; not based on review of the FBI files but on the testimony of his close associates.

    People are people and MLK was just a man. I think he's a classic case of having done so much good [most of] society chooses to overlook his flaws, especially since he's now seen as a martyr by millions. I personally think his final speech was probably divinely inspired and prophetic. If you listen to his Mountain Top speech I think you can hear references to his imminent murder, a prophetic overview of the condition and progress of black Americans for the next 40 years with a lot of symbolism that points to an epidemic of black on black violent crime so severe that "a sneeze" during that time to come would completely destroy the black community, close friendships forged between blacks and whites especially among those in political spheres and the younger generation and ultimately something significant to happen in 40 years that was compared to the Children of Israel being in the wilderness for 40 years followed by entering the Promised Land but MLK would be allowed be there himself.

    I find it oddly amusing that he was killed while standing on a balcony sneaking a smoke. I guess they are right when they say cigarettes will kill you.

    Note: (for any of you race baiters out there) I do not find it oddly amusing that he was killed. only the circumstances surrounding it.

    Please show me proof that the data you dug up indicates that the majority of all whites living in the United States were against equality for Blacks.

    Show me the sampling area, the demographics of that area, and other details anyone familiar with polling and statictical analysis understand is important.

    Thank you.

    It was never determined who hired the guy. Terrible FBI investigation. Lots of unanswered questions.

    You are changing your requirement, I showed that a "large portion of all whites living in the United States did not support equality."

    A "majority" (greater than 50%) of Whites did not support equal rights for Blacks prior and after the Civil War. A "large portion" (between 50% and 20%) of Whites did not support equal rights for Blacks in the 1960's.... as I have shown multiple times.

    Stop moving your goalpost and accept the fact that it has only been recently that racist views have been isolated to a small portion of US Whites.

    I haven't moved the goal post. I'm interested in keeping the information factual and not biased and manipulated, as your proving a want to do.

    In fact, your own data indicated earlier in the selection that 90% of the public in the Pacific Region in 1964 were in favor of equal rights, 91% in the mid-Atlantic, 88% in the East North Central, 91% in New England, etc, etc,. Who do you think lived in those regions.

    Spare me the lefts obsession to make out the majority of the white race as racists.
