In 1913 the income tax amendment was ratified and became a part of the United States Constitution. The Progressives called upon citizens to "cheerfully support and sustain this, the fairest and cheapest of all taxes. . . ."
Less than 1% of the population then paid federal income tax.
A normal income tax and an additional tax were levied against the net income of individuals, as shown in the following table:
Income Normal rate Additional rate Combined rate
0 1% 0 1%
$20,000 1% 1% 2%
$50,000 1% 2% 3%
$75,000 1% 3% 4%
$100,000 1% 4% 5%
$250,000 1% 5% 6%
$500,000 1% 6% 7%
There was an exemption of $3,000 for single filers and $4,000 for married couples. Therefore, the 1% bottom marginal rate applied only to the first $17,000 ($374,400 in 2010 dollars) of income for single filers or the first $16,000 ($352,300 in 2010 dollars) of income for married filers
Franklin Roosevelt, who had known communists in his cabinet and administration, proposed a 100 percent top tax rate. At a time of “grave national danger,” Roosevelt told Congress in April 1942, “no American citizen ought to have a net income, after he has paid his taxes, of more than $25,000 a year.” That would be about $350,000 in today's dollars. Roosevelt went on to claim that this was fair and just.
You know the history. The progressive income tax is as Karl Marx said, the best way to share the wealth. The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party is today proposing another way to spread wealth so they can gain more power by making servants, serfs, and slaves, of even more Americans to the government.
2020 presidential candidate for the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party, Elizabeth Warren, , is proposing a new “wealth tax” on Americans with more than $50 million in assets, as well as other measures that include a significant hike in funding for the Internal Revenue Service.
"We need structural change. That’s why I’m proposing something brand new – an annual tax on the wealth of the richest Americans. I’m calling it the 'Ultra-Millionaire Tax' & it applies to that tippy top 0.1% – those with a net worth of over $50M,"
This measure goes beyond confiscation of current income of Americans and now calls for the theft of the property of Americans, even though our Declaration of Independence asserts that property – pursuit of happiness- is a natural right granted to us by our Creator and thus cannot be taken from the citizen by government.
The history of the theft by the government of the property of the American citizen has not as yet been written. It has been written in Russia, later the Soviet Union, member of the Soviet bloc, Mao’s China, Castro’s Cuba, and is currently being written in Chavez’s Venezuela. The ending has always been the same; social decay and financial collapse. We were told by Einstein that insanity is trying the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.
After 4 Officers Shot, Furious Police Union Pres. Lays into Media, Antifa-Types. ‘Sick & Tired of Dirtbags Trying To Take Our Lives… the Ones Spreading Rhetoric That Police Officers Are the Enemy…’ Included in the category of Dirtbags would be Obama and Holder.
Houston Police Officers’ Union President Joe Gamaldi slammed “dirtbags” who spread anti-law enforcement rhetoric after four Houston police officers were shot Monday night during a drug raid. The shootout took place while officers were investigating a drug case the southeast section of the city, according to ABC News. They were met with gunfire as soon as they reached the door of the home they were targeting. Four were wounded immediately, with two shot in the neck, according to CNN. Two suspects were found dead at the scene. Initial reports indicated five officers had been shot, but CNN reported that the five had suffered a knee injury.
Speaking at the hospital, Gamaldi exploded on those who support anti-cop rhetoric. “We are sick and tired of having targets on our back,” he said. Police officers have been under fire from the left in recent years, especially with protests from so-called antifa thugs and NFL players like Colin Kaepernick. The media only fuels the left’s outrage by zealously reporting on alleged incidents of police brutality.
This war on our police, the war that the left claims is justified, began in earnest when Obama and Holder declared that any action by police against non-whites was racist. Hours before the murders of five police officers in Dallas, Texas, Obama was again spouting false claims about racism by the police. He sees racism whenever there is any disparity in outcomes, no matter what the cause. Obama, Holder, and others inflame passions, but take no responsibility, and instead use events to push for more gun control. Yet, shouting racism can endanger the lives of police officers. The Dallas police chief told us one of the shooters “wanted to kill white people, especially white officers.”
After the Trayvon Martin case, there were numerous cases around the country of blacks attacking whites and invoking Martin’s name. Let’s not forget that NYPD cops Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu were executed by a black man who was angry about the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo.
Obama, Holder, and the Obama regime spoke out repeatedly on the Martin and Brown cases. They repeatedly claimed racism was involved, but in fact there was no evidence of that in either case.
Obama was also wrong to infer racism from higher arrest rates or prison-sentence lengths. “African Americans are arrested at twice the rate of whites,” he said. What he failed to note is that blacks commit murder at almost six times the rate whites do.
“African-American and Hispanic population, who make up only 30 percent of the general population, make up more than half of the incarcerated population,” he added. But Obama ignores the facts put out by his own Department of Justice. The FBI claims that gangs commit 80 percent of crimes in the US, and the National Gang Center estimates that 82 percent of gang members are black or Hispanic.
And the war on police, a war fueled by the outrageous and false statements of Obama, Holder, and others whose goal is to bring chaos into our society, grows and grows with constant and consistent justification for the killing of these Americans who have accepted the role of protecting the public.
Negotiations succeed when two sides or two people want the same outcome. We see this happen in real estate negotiations where both sides want the same outcome; that is a successful transfer of property. Price and terms are negotiated with both sides willing to compromise because one side wants to purchase the real estate and the other side wants to sell the real estate; that is, they both want the ownership of the property to be transferred. The negotiations fail when one side determines a successful completion of the transaction is not in their best interest and both sides no longer have a common goal.
Marriages can be saved when both sides want the same outcome; that is, they want their marriage to succeed for various reasons; the children, they still love each other, or because they view a divorce as failure and refuse to fail. Negotiations take place and there are compromises made by both partners. The negotiations fail when one partner truly wants the marriage to succeed while the other partner claims the same to look good to others, but in truth wants to be free of the bonds of marriage for whatever reason.
Negotiations were successful when our founders negotiated to draft and ratify a new agreement now called the United States Constitution, to replace the existing agreement, The Articles of Confederation. These negotiations succeeded because both sides had a common goal and that goal was to form a nation that would be founded on principles that would enable the nation to function in their time and well beyond. Both sides agreed that our basic rights, life, liberty, and property, were natural rights that were under the sovereignty of our Creator and not government. They both also agreed that the United States should be a sovereign nation that was based on individualism, rule of law, limited government, and the people were to be sovereign and government was to serve that sovereign. Because both sides understood and deeply revered these common goals, the many compromises necessary to achieve these goals were made.
When two people do not have common goals, negotiations can take place, but they will fail because the necessary compromises will not be made. There is no common ground. This is the situation in which the United States now finds itself. We have the one side that continues to adhere to the fundamental principles of our founders; our natural rights of life, liberty, and property, are rights given by our Creator and not by government or man, that individualism or the rights of the individual are not to be subordinated to the subjective demands of the collective, that we will adhere to rule of law, limited government, and sovereignty of the people.
The other side no longer has as its goal the principles upon which our nation was founded. They now hold collectivism or the subjective good of the collective superior to the rights of the individual. This collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same) demands that all rights are granted by government and thus can be extended or diminished by government. The collectivist believes that government is to dictate to the individual how they are to live their lives and what their thoughts are to be (conformity to one way of thought). Therefore, the collectivist government must have arbitrary law, it must have a large dictatorial bureaucratic government, and government must be sovereign with the people as unquestioning servants.
The border wall or border security negotiations that are supposed to take place cannot succeed if both sides are true to their core beliefs. There is no common ground. The individualist believes that a nation is defined as a group of people with common beliefs and heritage living on a defined property. The individualist beliefs it is the primary purpose of government to protect its citizens from outside enemies while protecting the individual rights of the citizen internally.
The collectivist beliefs everyone is to be a servant of and dependent of the government. The primary allegiance of the individual is first and foremost to the ruling class or the Dictatorship of the Proletariat. The collectivist does not believe in nations, but believes that all should be able to move freely without any artificial restrictions called borders. All are citizens of the world and all have the right to be dependents under any collectivist government. The collectivist has as their goal to eliminate all nations and have a One World Collectivist Government.
When the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) say they are for border security, they are lying. They want open borders so the Dictatorship of the Proletariat can be fully established in the United States and then have the United States join the One World Collectivist Government. Open borders is just a part of their strategy, but it is an important part.
AN OBAMA JUDGE WILL CLAIM THIS TO BE UNCONSTITUTIONAL – HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS SHOULD HAVE AN UNDERSTANDING OF OUR GOVERNMENTRead Now
A bill that passed the Indiana Senate would require all students to pass the U.S. citizenship exam, usually administered to immigrants, in order to graduate from high school. Indiana state senators proposed the legislation after growing frustrated with high school students knowledge of government and the legislative process. As part of Senate Bill 132, students would be required to pass the U.S. citizenship exam by getting at least 60 out of 100 questions correct. If they are not able to do so, they would be denied a high school diploma even if they have satisfied all other graduation requirements.
If the proposal is passed the bill would go into effect at the beginning of the 2020 school year. "We have many young people in our country, and in the state of Indiana, who do not know a lot of simple information on our government and on our country and some of our history,” one senator said.
One Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) senator said he is against the proposal because it would force another graduation requirement on students and add another mandate to teachers. "Some students are just not excellent test-takers,” he said.
A current requirement to graduate from high school in Indiana is that the student successfully complete 3 credits that include U.S. History, Economics, and Government. To add as a part of the standard curriculum the successful completion of the US citizenship exam would seem to be very simple. I have personally taken this exam, and the questions asked on it should have been taught in any U.S. History and U.S. Government class.
The real question to ask is why an Obama judge will and this Marxist/Progressive senator does object to students being able to pass the very simple US citizenship exam. The answer is obvious. The collectivist movement, which includes Marxists, communists, socialists, progressives, Democrats – all virtually the same, wants all people to understand as little as possible as to how the individualist movement, the movement upon which the United States was built, differs from the collectivist movement, the movement supported by the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party.
The answer is straight forward. The Individualist movement advocates for a self-reliant citizen who is encouraged to achieve in their chosen field. The Individualist movement requires freedom for all. Capitalism is always a part of individualism. The Individualist movement is a creative movement that understands that achievement and wealth are infinite, and that the success of one means potential for all. The rising tide of capitalism and individualism has always raised the living standard and freedom for all.
The Collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same) movement is built on a government reliant mentality. The collectivist movement believes in subjugating the desire and ambition of the individual to the limits set forth by the collective. The collectivist movement believes that wealth and creativity are finite and thus have to be allocated as they believe to be in the best interest of the collective. This limiting mentality always caters to the lowest common denominator which always causes social decay, financial collapse, social devastation, and hopeless societies. This is what collectivism has done in Venezuela.
Marx, Lenin, Mao, Castro, Chavez, Obama, Holder, Jarrett, and all comrades understand that when the truth of individualism and the truth of collectivism are presented in a fair manner, even though collectivism may have a short-term appeal for the jealous and petty individual, individualism will always prevail in the long run. The collectivist comrades understand that indoctrination, lying, propaganda, and manipulation are critical to them gaining power over the people so the comrades can achieve their goal of dictating to all how they are to live their lives and what their thoughts are to be.
This type of requirement for high school graduation should be adopted by all states. This type of requirement should be required for all voters, along with voter identification. The freedom and independence promised by the United States Constitution is a right that should be cherished by all. The requirement to understand our system and history is not unreasonable for all who wish to participate.
The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party of today advocates the very same policies used by and touted by Lenin. When I say the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party is an advocate for collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressive – all virtually the same), this is not conjecture. It is founded on the basis of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party promoting the exact same polices put forth by Marx and implemented by Lenin. Yes, Americans, if we continue down the road of “Hope and Change” as put forth by the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats), we will arrive at that same place all collectivist societies arrive; state of social decay, state of financial collapse, state of devastation, state of despair, state of no hope.
Following are quotes of Lenin and policies implemented by Lenin. These quotes and policies have been stated by the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party members and proposed as policies for the United States. If you take the time to read these and apply them to current happenings, you will see the congruity.
To permit such operations (abortion or murder of an unborn child) to be made freely and without any charge in Soviet hospitals, where conditions are assured of minimizing the harm of the operation.
“Income Inequality Is the Great Economic and Moral Crisis of Our Time.” The successful are ““bloodsuckers, vampires, plunderers of the people and profiteers, who fatten on famine.”
Socialized medicine is the keystone to the arch of the Socialized State.'
And so, in capitalist society we have a democracy that is curtailed, wretched, false, a democracy only for the rich, for the minority. The dictatorship of the proletariat, the period of transition to communism, will for the first time create democracy for the people, for the majority, along with the necessary suppression of the exploiters, of the minority.
It is the duty of the revolution to put an end to compromise, and to put an end to compromise means taking the path of socialist revolution.
Democracy is indispensable to socialism
The goal of socialism is communism
The press should be not only a collective propagandist and a collective agitator, but also a collective organizer of the masses
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted
Our program necessarily includes the propaganda of atheism
He embarked on providing free education
A commission to fight counter-revolution and espionage was also established. It was a secret police force. A secret police force is used by a government that seeks to intimidate and suppress political opposition by means of police force.
Collectivists (Marxists, communists, socialists, progressives, Democrats – all virtually the same) despise all that built the United States, which was the principles of individualism. Individualism stresses the freedom of the individual while collectivism advocates the subjugation of the individual to what they define as the good for all.
Among the goals of collectivism, according to “The Communist Manifesto,” is that it “abolishes eternal truths, it abolishes all religion, and all morality.” The family “will vanish as a matter of course.” So why would collectivism want to destroy these values and traditions, particularly the family?
To understand this, we need to understand the nature of traditional views on hierarchy as well as what makes a society, and how collectivism aims to usurp these systems. In traditional cultures, there were different tiers of power within a society. In ancient China, it was said that the people follow the emperor, and the emperor follows heaven. The lowest form of government was the county magistrate, and below that were fraternal organizations and families.
Collectivism aims to subvert all institutions so as to seize control of them and gather all power to itself. When it comes to the family, collectivism aims to destroy it so as to seize control of the lowest level of social order. And destroying the family advances other objectives of collectivism: wiping out morality, traditions, and religious belief.
After it has gained control of the government, collectivism wants to destroy the family in order to turn all allegiance toward the collectivist ruling party. To do this, it creates various social movements that push for the destruction of marriage, thus inciting struggle between men and women, and inciting children to rebel against their parents.
In order to subvert the family, collectivism turns children against their mothers and fathers. It pushes to take children out from under the control of the family and places them under state-controlled education systems. Thus, the mother no longer has control over her children, no longer passes on the culture of the society to her children, and no longer teaches her children as has been done in society for thousands of years.
Then collectivism turns the mother against the father. By turning women against men, it is able to destroy the household. Once the household is destroyed, the family is broken. The child often loses a parent and begins to act out, and the collectivist system then has control.
Collectivism has led women down this path of believing men are an evil force to struggle against. It has done this by framing traditional feminine virtues as being forced on women by men, and thus as things that should be opposed. In this way, feminism is very much an anti-women ideology. It argues that feminine virtues are evil and that the right path for women is to fight against men in order to seize for themselves the traditional domains of men.
Meanwhile, the role women once played in society has largely been abandoned and replaced by state-run education, unhealthy diets, and disposable lifestyles. Feminism latches itself onto sometimes legitimate issues, like respecting women, but in reality, it practices the opposite of what it preaches. It opposes feminine virtues, the traditional roles of women, and the inner strength and gentle wisdom that women once possessed and knew how to wield.
Men in the past used to respect women for their gentleness, beauty, purity, wisdom, and patience, in the same way that women respected men for their strength, solidity of character, decisiveness, and accomplishments in the broader society. Women in the past understood that helping their husbands succeed in the world would also enrich their own lives.
And while women were respected for values including gentleness, beauty, and purity, feminism has taught them to be the opposite. It tells them that they should be impure, that they should not make themselves look nice, and that doing so would be going along with a male-driven archetype—that the “patriarchy” is making them be this way. It attempts to convince women mentally to rebel against their own inner natures.
In traditional cultures, it was understood that men and women have different powers. Part of the concept of yin and yang is the division between gentleness and strength. A woman’s power is in gentleness, and a man’s power is in strength. Through the influences of collectivism, many women today have lost touch with the power of gentleness, and many men only understand strength on a shallow level.
The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party, which is advocating the collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same) movement continues to fundamentally transform the United States to a Marxist totalitarian state, as promised by Comrade Obama. The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party is abolishing eternal truths, all religion, and all mortality. A critical element in their endeavor is the destruction of the family.
The incident that took place at the Lincoln Memorial where some high school kids are being demonized should have been a non-story. Because we have instant knowledge through electronic media, we had many responses that were based on incorrect information. The really sad part is that even after the full story beaome known, those who reacted to a partial story refused to correct their initial condemnation of young innocent kids.
What we have learned is that many people will deliberately edit information to achieve the story they want. This is of course not new, but that it is so widely accepted is new and is a direct result of the hatred that has been encouraged by the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) movement to promote division and hatred between Americans by using a false narrative on racism. In today's world, according to the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats), racism is now disagreeing with the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) agenda which is a collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive) agenda.
The collectivists have used propaganda, which is information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote or publicize a particular political cause or point of view, from the very beginning of their movement. The collectivists learned that false information, or propaganda, and outright lying have been the most successful way of bringing about their promised Marxist totalitarian state ruled by the Dictatorship of the Proletariat. This story and the Buzzfeed story about Trump telling Cohen to lie are perfect examples of propaganda.
The high school kids were wearing MAGA hats, and according to the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) movement that is non-conformity to their agenda and should therefore be prohibited. This is a policy of the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) that is in direct contrast to a mandatory element of a free and independent people, and that is freedom of speech, expression, and thought. The belief of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party is right in line with all collectivist’s movements; and that is to bring about complete and total censorship and insist on total conformity. This has been a critical part of all collectivist movements including the communist movement in Russia, China, Cuba, and Venezuela and the socialist movements in Germany and Italy.
I stongly encourage those who oppose the collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive) movement of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party to learn how these movements have enslaved people in the past. The tactics used in the past are the same being used by the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) Party of today. Mandatory conformity and indoctrination have been and are essential to the fundamental transformation of the United States from a free and independent nation to a Marxist totalitarian state under the control of the Dictatorship of the Proletariat.
This is the mantra of the collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same) movement. It has been since the beginning of the collectivist movement. Lenin stated that anything that advances the collectivist movement is moral and anything that does not advance the movement is immoral. This is why the FBI and the DOJ view their illegal and unconstitutional activities in their pursuit to damage Trump is justified. It is illegal and unconstitutional, but they believe what they did advanced the collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same) movement.
This is why Comrade Obama feels justified in blatantly lying to the American public time after time when he said, “If you like your plan you can keep it. If you like your Doctors, you can keep them,” even though he knew it was false. Collectivists have believed that state controlled and provided health care is essential to their implementation of a Marxist totalitarian state under the control of the “Dictatorship of the Proletariat.” State controlled and provided health care was one of the first implemented programs under the Bolshevik takeover in Russia. Obama said the ends justified the means.
This is why Harry Reid felt justified in going onto the Senate floor and knowingly lying about the tax filing and tax paying of then Republican Candidate for President Mitt Romney, claiming that Romney had done neither for ten years. A few years after the election and when the facts proved Reid knowingly lied, Reid stated, “He didn’t win, did he.” Reid said the ends justified the means.
This is why the Marxist/Progressives brought forth stories and witnesses to knowingly make false claims about then Justice Kavanaugh and why Diane Feinstein’s staff would leak the information even though stating they had not. If they could have forced the nomination of Kavanaugh to be pulled they would have justified their activity as moral because it would have moved the agenda of the collectivist movement. They believed the ends justified the means.
Now we are learning that when a Marxist/Progressive (Democrat), specifically Comrade Schiff is caught illegally leaking information, he will justify it as not leaking but exposing. I can not but imagine that Comey would have loved to have heard this claim prior to admitting that he initiated the leaking of the material against Trump.
Comrade Schiff said what Comrades Marx, Lenin, Obama, and Reid said, “If it advances the movement down the road to a collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive) totalitarian state, it is moral, if it detracts from the movement, it is immoral for the ENDS ALWAYS JUSTIFY THE MEANS.”
Don’t Be Fooled: Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘Green New Deal’ Is Crammed with Socialist Goodies.
Written by Justin Haskins
An aide for Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., says Warren supports Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s, D-N.Y., “Green New Deal,” further elevating the status of the plan at the highest levels of the Democratic Party.
In expressing her support for the plan, Warren joins Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Cory Booker, D-N.J.
The Green New Deal has been hailed by Democrats and liberal pundits as one of the most important proposals to tackle global warming in decades, but don’t be fooled: Many supporters of the Green New Deal know it will do absolutely nothing to reduce global temperature or prevent future temperature rise—the primary purpose of the proposal, according to Ocasio-Cortez.
The real goal of the Green New Deal is to impose a series of radical, socialistic programs—policies that would dramatically increase the size and power of the federal government, cause immense harm to the U.S. economy, and run up the national debt by trillions of dollars.
In a proposed draft resolution to form a House committee to create legislation for the Green New Deal, Ocasio-Cortez provided important details for her plan.
One of the most important elements of the plan is a mandated transition away from fossil fuels in virtually all aspects of American life and the creation of a huge new renewable energy industry. Ocasio-Cortez proposes ending the use of fossil fuels in nearly every industry, including on farms and in all manufacturing, in just 10 years, from 2020 to 2030.
Additionally, all power in the United States would need to be produced using renewables, which have been proven on countless occasions to increase the cost of electricity.
Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t stop there, however.
In addition to forcing everyone to use renewable energy, thereby closing entire existing energy industries and taking away the jobs of tens of thousands of people, she also proposes “upgrading” every single home and business building in the country to make them more energy efficient, and for “comfort,” a policy that would likely cost trillions of dollars on its own.
Ocasio-Cortez says the Green New Deal would create a federal jobs guarantee that would “assure a living wage job to every person who wants one,” as well as a single-payer health care program that would put the federal government in charge of the entire health care industry—a plan the Mercatus Center says will cost at least $32 trillion in its first 10 years.
The Green New Deal would also form “basic income programs” and impose all sorts of new workplace requirements, including new “wage standards.”
Ocasio-Cortez wants the federal government to lead the charge in this effort, but she also says the legislation should “deeply involve national and local labor unions to take a leadership role in the process of job training and worker deployment.”
How would the government pay for these multiple trillion-dollar programs? By raising taxes and, most importantly, printing money.
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.
The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education. Martin Luther King, Jr.
We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made straight and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together.
Violence as a way of achieving racial justice is both impractical and immoral. I am not unmindful of the fact that violence often brings about momentary results. Nations have frequently won their independence in battle. But in spite of temporary victories, violence never brings permanent peace.
MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.
What this man taught is the exact opposite of what the movement of Obama, Holder, Sharpton, and Jackson are teaching. Martin Luther King Jr wanted color of skin to be replaced with content of character. He would have opposed special treatment because of color of skin. He taught all be treated as one. He would have opposed adjectives such as black or African in front of American. He taught acceptance based on the individual, the content of their character, and not a collective or because they all had the same skin color.
If the those who are pushing for a segregated America, Obama, Holder, Sharpton, and Jackson would only practice what Martin Luther King, Jr. believed and preached, they would be poorer and less powerful, but America would be far less segregated.
