The Dream and the 44th

When I come across black people that totally makes sense, it really does my heart good to know that I'm not alone in a sea of ignorance. You've all heard my input on what I think about Dr. King's dream and Obama as the 44th President, here's another articulate and analytical point of view.

Very artistic and analytical, still and yet, opinionated. However, yet again the perpetuation of the falsehood that "MLK was a Republican". (aka "LIE"!)

It's indeed probable that in 1956, Dr. King (and most Blacks for that matter) voted for Dwight Eisenhower.

In his first term, Eisenhower supported the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka U.S. Supreme Court decision. He sent troops to escort the Little Rock Nine into Little Rocks segregated Central High School. He proposed to Congress the Civil Rights Acts of 1957 and 1960 and signed those acts into law.

So, again I ask, WHO DO YOU THINK DR. KING VOTED FOR IN 1956?

Great Tyrone. He told it like it t-i-s tis. Blacks I knew down south werer all Republicans, as they said thank you for freeing their ancestors. The Democrats were the ones who wanted to keep slavery and formed the KKK and NAZi, now called the Progressives and the Democratic Socialist Party aka Communism.

Spread the wealth. The government will take my sandwich and give it to someone who didnt get up aND MAKE HIS OWN saNDWICH. iF P.aNTHONY HAD A SANDWICH HE HAS TO SHARE AND SPREAD THE SANDWICH WITH ME AND I DIDNT FEEL LIKE MAKING MY OWN OR HELPING HIM TO MAKE THE SANDWICH. He always goes back to 1960, I was there and it was not all hate. All whites were not racist. without those whites, all blacks would be dead. Many racist made babies with black women during the day and burned a cross at night. How do you explain all of the light skinned blacks in America. Black men were not allowed to have sex with white women. This came from the laws of Islam where Black men were not allowed to marry white women. In Palestine they honor killed an AraB GIRL FOR MARRYING AN aFRO-Palestinian by Hamas. Quran 4:119says allah creation cannot be altered. These instructions came with us as our ancestors were sold to Europeans by Arab and African Muslims.

King was a Republican?

Then why did he support Kennedy and Johnson?

Honestly, does it truly matter what party Martin Luther King Jr. aligned himself with? Or FDR? Or Teddy Roosevelt? Or Reagan or Lincoln or Jefferson or Washington? Country First -- right?

This is worth mentioning here, however, because the mantra of this particular blog is that African-Americans have given “unfounded loyalty toward a political party that doesn’t deserve it,” meaning the Democrats.

But for the record, Dr. King voted for JFK in 1960. In '64, MLK publicly denounced Goldwater and voted for LBJ. And in the fateful year of '68 it is clear that MLK and RFK had been on the same page as that election drew near.

Had Dr. King lived into his 40s (1970s), 50s (1980s), and 60s (1990s) the U.S. would benefited from his next agenda, which would have been an aggressive war on poverty. Does this even remotely sound like a plank in the platform of the modern-day GOP? Seriously??

If you make an out-of-context statement such as, "MLK was a Republican," you're going to get called out on it.

p allen "Very artistic and analytical, still and yet, opinionated. However, yet again the perpetuation of the falsehood that "MLK was a Republican". (aka "LIE"!)"

Allen, I don't recall ever mentioning that King was a Republican or Democrat. Some say he was and some say he wasn't. All either side has to do is prove their claim one way or the other allen. You call it a lie, but is it a lie because you say it is?

p allen "It's indeed probable that in 1956, Dr. King (and most Blacks for that matter) voted for Dwight Eisenhower. "

I had an article on my old hard drive about the percentage of blacks that supported Eisenhower. It was true, I will see if I can find the article again and post it. The Republican Party got a very bad wrap by the Democrat Party in respect to race. Republican made the problems worse by trying to take the high road and not attack the smears by the Democrat Party. Democrats can claim that LBJ signed the Civil Right Act into law, but it is a historical fact that the Republican Party has never from it's conception to this day have never been against blacks or civil rights. There is an old saying. If you don't set the record straight on your behalf, your enemy will set it straight so that it is against your behalf.

P Allen "So, again I ask, WHO DO YOU THINK DR. KING VOTED FOR IN 1956?"

Let me guess, Eisenhower?lol

Sheik Yerbouti "King was a Republican?then why did he support Kennedy and Johnson?"

I don't know if he was a Republican or not to be honest Sheik. If King was a Republican, it wouldn't be uncommon for a Republican to support a Democrat President. Collin Powell and Chuck Hagel are both Republicans, and they supported Obama. King could have supported Kennedy and Johnson, because they would have been in power to sign the legislation.

eponymous "Honestly, does it truly matter what party Martin Luther King Jr. aligned himself with? Or FDR? Or Teddy Roosevelt? Or Reagan or Lincoln or Jefferson or Washington? Country First -- right?"

I really don't care what party King was affiliated with eponymous 45 years ago. I agree it should come down to County first and foremost. I guess we agree.

Eponymous "But for the record, Dr. King voted for JFK in 1960. In '64, MLK publicly denounced Goldwater and voted for LBJ. And in the fateful year of '68 it is clear that MLK and RFK had been on the same page as that election drew near."

I just ask that someone provide his voter registration. As I stated before Registered Republicans have voted for Democrats and vice versa. They're are people that have been life long Democrats and always vote Republican, because they never changed their voting card. As for Goldwtater, he was falsely labeled as a racist just because he didn't support the civil rights act. His non support had absolutely nothing to do with race. Liberals like to use Goldwater as some sort of racist poster child, yet they never mention the fact that Goldwater was won of the founding members of the NACCP Arizona Chapter. This is what I mean about people presenting half truths and using them to present a false picture as being complete.

eponymous "Had Dr. King lived into his 40s (1970s), 50s (1980s), and 60s (1990s) the U.S. would benefited from his next agenda, which would have been an aggressive war on poverty. Does this even remotely sound like a plank in the platform of the modern-day GOP? Seriously??"

Fighting a "war on poverty" is like trying to clap with ONE hand. There will never be "economic parity". It's pure insanity for anyone to think otherwise. There will always be the "haves" and "have nots". It's just the way life is. There is nothing wrong with that either. Very few people that are educated live in poverty. Once again, it's just a fact. It all comes down to choices people make in their lives. Poor people can become apart of the middle class or become rich just like a rich person can lose everything and become poor. There is no entitlement to a person having economic parity to a person with more wealth. There is no country in the world where everybody has a net worth that is "equal" and there never will be.

shake yer bouti is cool. loooool
Dr. King as many other blacks were Republicans, as Republicans stopped slavery in America. His parents were republicans. Abe Lincoln was a Republican and the Quakers were the first Christians to help slaves escape. In America, you can cross the line and vote for another party. We are free and unlike Islam, we will not be beheaded.

CB;"Allen, I don't recall ever mentioning that King was a Republican or Democrat."

In this case you didn't, but the Machosauce guy did...

CB;"Some say he was and some say he wasn't. All either side has to do is prove their claim one way or the other allen. You call it a lie, but is it a lie because you say it is?"

I've shown where, and how I arrived at the conclusion that he was not. Each claim made by those who say he was, is based entirely on what someone else said.

I find Barrack Obama to be a vile creature and I feel the same way about his harpy of a wife!

I love that guy who did the video the dream and the 44th. I think Obama is a monster and my worst nightmare. I admit John McCain is not much of an improvement but I'd rather have him than Obama in a sense! I wish he never won but I hope something good will come out of it like more people seeing the Democrat Party as it really is a beast that devours our money and oppresses us for our own so called good!

This gentlemen brought up subject of Abraham Lincoln:
Years ago, Ebony magazine's Lerone Bennett Jr. has written a history of Abraham Lincoln that calls for a reexamination of the racial attitudes of the 16th president of the United States. The `Great Emancipator,' argues the author, was actually a white supremacist.

He claims that Lincoln uses the N-word in the writings in his journals and said it constantly all the time during his casual conversations with other people.

And Bennet claimed that Lincoln's main goal was to take all the freed slaves and to "ship them back to Africa" so America could be all-white.

Ok, we all know that most of the freed slaves went back to Africa and started their own nation of Liberia.

What Bennett doesn't talk about was after the war, Lincoln had a change of heart and was working to give equal rights to blacks and give them full citizenship.

If Bennett's claims were true, or this was his attempt to stir up controversy, it's over. Lincoln has been dead for 143-years. He held this nation together as long as it could.

Why is it that some blacks were to go around and to exploit racism of the past long before they were ever born?
