To understand the beliefs of Martin Luther King, Jr. a person needs to listen to his niece, Alveda King and not to those who use Martin Luther King, Jr. to promote and enrich themselves, namely Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson. MLK was a crusader for equal rights, not for special treatment. MLK was not a racist as are the political left, perhaps none more so than Joe Biden and Kamal Harris.
MLK would never have stated that anybody must vote a certain way because their skin was a certain color such as Joe Biden said. MLK would have opposed people of any race receiving special treatment or special privileges. MLK did demand that all people be treated equally, and that people should not be relegated to accept inferior positions because of the color of their skin, but he never proposed special treatment either, only equality.
"I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character,” was his statement from his famous “I have a Dream” speech. The day to which MLK looked is a day to which every Freedom Loving American should look, that day when skin color does not designate you as inferior or superior, when skin color does not designate you as supremacist or victim, when skin color does not stipulate you are incapable of competing and thus must be singled out for special treatment, a day when you are free to vote for whomever you wish without being demonized or ostracized, yes, a day when all are color blind, that means blacks are color blind, browns are color blind, and whites are color blind.
Yet in today’s world, those who believe power and wealth can be accumulated because they tell people to ignore the content of the individual character but focus on the color of skin, hatred and division will abound as power and wealth are accumulated.
Sorry MLK, but so many who claim to be your disciples are using you for purely selfish reasons. However, those of us who believe in your message will continue to do what we can do to hopefully help bring your dream of equality based on individual character.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
