What, "Reverend" Wright

What, "Reverend" Wright wasn't available? The black community has repudiated everything MLK stood for, instead choosing to become a permanent victim/victimizing society. Wright's views are more in line with today's thinking.

Amazing that the first two

Amazing that the first two posters would not give MLK the time of day, could not wait to post their negative comments. DSTEWRT the only ones acting like victims are you and your ILK.

It is amazing how folks that never supported MLK now use him to defend their negative comments. And it is even more amazing how withes are always acting if they are victims in America. Now race on earth in any country has had it better and discriminated and oppressed more people.

What dream are we keeping

What dream are we keeping alive? The dream where we develop character by becoming a productive member of society and being judged by same. Or t he dream we are still waiting for Gen Sherman to set us free.

Maybe Dr. King was killed

Maybe Dr. King was killed because he did want something better than a "victim mentality" for his fellow man. He certainly could have been the first AA POTUS. I think the same people were afraid of JFK, RFK, MLK and George Wallace. Their views on America were not in sync with the "powers that be".

I wonder how MLK would feel

I wonder how MLK would feel if he could see the neighborhoods named in his honor here and in other citys? Maybe thats a subject for discussion at this event. BTW did Moss leave his congregation in Augusta because they were all saved and without sin, or did he move to Chicago for more salary?
