What Martin Luther King Would Say…

Dr. King was senselessly murdered 40 years ago today. I wonder what the Reverend King would think if he could see what has happened to race relations today. I think he would be disappointed. His greatest disappointment would be how reliant the Black community’s “success” has been tied to government programs. His dream was a colorblind and equal opportunity society. He would be disappointed in the way, Sharpton, Jackson, Farrakhan, and their ilk have used race to keep them wealthy, and the larger community dependent. Dr. King’s message was directed toward a White America that needed to change and embrace Black Americans. If he came back to see today’s race relations, he would find most supporters of his original message would be conservative White folks. Something to think about…
