– The Bottom Line –
Any descent human being has to admire and respect the great Martin Luther King Jr. The man not only dedicated his life to freedom and human dignity for ALL, but he made the ultimate sacrifice doing it. His dream was one that any civilized society must share. The words were simple and unmistakable;
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. MLK – 1963
Some 45 years later 95% of the very people that MLK fought and died for would 'spit on his grave' by voting for a man because of his 'black' skin. A man with no experience for the job and and whose character and associations were beyond the pale. A man who could not even pass a government background check . And these same 95% call names and disrespect 'black' men with unquestionable character as Lt. Col. Alan West, Senator Tim Scott and Dr. Alan Keyes.
On November 4, 2008 and on November 6, 2012, Martin Luther King Jr. surely 'turned in his grave. All Americans were baffled that an overwhelming 95% of the very people that had celebrated MLK had turned their backs on him, his dream and his legacy. All Americans of any 'color' were embarrassed by this so public display of disrespect for this great American.
Until 2008, I respected the Martin Luther King Day as a national observance of a great American. Since 2008 and especially now, it now represents only a dream for a pathetic group of people that didn't deserve this dream or the man who dreamt it for them…
