    I find this very hard to believe.

    Seriously...dont you think it is possible that it is your own personal bias and that in fact you MAY really have NO IDEA what happened there or who might have approved of what other than from the very biased positions you have read or heard from others?

    So your sister got all the brains?

    Sorry, could let that one go by.

    I feel the same way about Barry, Reid, and Pelosi.

    I think people are going to ignore the obvious in order to either support Beck or not. No one really knows how Dr. King would have felt about the speech. His niece and attorney maybe right and he may have loved it, or he may not have. Point is I wish people wouldn't try and use what other think about how Dr. King would have felt. And unfortunately he is not around for us to ask.

    That was a Democratic govt that thought he was a socialist. My how times have changed. Now we have a Democratic black socialist as president.

    Except for the fact that Obama isn't a socialist.

    I think we either except that he was the man we think he was or he was a charleton ala Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton. Id like to think he was the real deal. Human..fallible...but very real.

    Clearly social programs are also unconstitutional. MLK's stance in favor of these collectivist socialist handouts marks him ultimately as an enemy of American freedom.

    Discrimination against people on race = bad. BUT, if a private person chooses to conduct his business only with a selected race, that's how he's expressing his freedom in a country that is supposed to be free. Restricting the invidual's freedom violates his civil rights. Period.

    That's that. When, however, the government, which has a lawful monopoly on the use of force and the responsibility to act in all the people's interests, the government should not be allowed to discriminate.

    The people are one group, the government is another. The Civil Rights laws and the silly notions of "social justice" want to pretend that the people should be constrained by the same rules the government is supposed to be shackled with. And that ain't the case.
    Emphasis mine.

    Scarecrow: The highlighted section is just wrong on so many Jim Crow levels.

    In order to have a business in the USA, you have to be an equal opportunity employer. That is the law. Period.

    I agree and I think he was the real deal. You may not know but Dr. King graduated from BU and a lot of the people that knew him that are still around campus said he was the real deal. It was interesting because an article was published in our school magazine that talked about how Dr. King would have felt about Beck's gathering. And the main punch line was that we will never know how he felt since he is no longer here, but it is our duty to try and do that what he preached about equality. It was a really moving article.
