    That's a common theme for Pastor Manning. Love that guy. Even when he isn't hitting the nail on the head, he's comedy gold.

    It is important for black activists to keep their fellow brothers on the plantation.

    The irritant with many reasonable, middle-of-the-road white folks - who are not bigoted, biased, nor prejudiced against people of color - is the race pimps selling racism, when there isn't any.

    But hey, Demos gotta figure out a way to get elected. We get it.

    The point is really this: a white person kills a black person with alleged racial animus that is later proved nonexistent, and the media screams about it for 18 months. A black person (or group) kills a white person with proclaimed or evident racial animus and the media actively covers up this fact. Patterns of racially motivated beatings and other crimes by groups of young black men are either sanitized of its racial aspect or unreported.

    Why the double standard? Does being black entitle one to act out racial hatred without being called on it?

    I think King would be very disturbed by the direction race relations are going

    King;

    But there is something that I must say to my people who stand on the warm threshold which leads into the palace of justice. In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.​

    You can carry this concept into different demographics.

    The issue with the Martin case which propelled it into national attention was the killing of a minor by an adult who suspected him of being out while black and wearing a hoodie and his release in a few hours with no charges filed. Let me know when you hear about a black guy killing a white guy and being released in a few hours. As noted by our president and even conservative blacks like the former head of the RNC, being black - no matter how respectable a position you have reached in American society - means you are assumed guilty when walking down the street after dark. Being white and all you probably don't get it, but that doesn't mean you must feel aggrieved because it has been pointed out to you.

    Love the crocodile tears on this thread and others by the white grievance committee over MLK and how his message has been taken over by n....s. The 1963 March was the March for Jobs and Freedom, and you know what that means in today's right wing lingo that you guys love! Socialism! MLK was shot and killed in Memphis while helping with a strike of unionized government workers, and you know what that means. Thuggery! He was planning a major march in Washington DC including an "ocupation" of the mall named The Poor Peoples campaign, and you know what that means. 47% er's and handouts! His chief aide, who was on the terrace with him when he was shot in Memphis was Jesse Jackson, and you know what that means. Race pimping! He had denounced the Republicans and there last presidential candidate - Goldwater - who had voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and you know what that means. A slave on the democratic plantation.

    Those are all facts which you poseurs will have to swallow if you want to keep pretending what devotees of the great man you are. We all know you aren't - well except for those willfully ignorant of history. There is nothing about MLK which distinguishes him in what he was fighting for from today's major black leaders like Jackson and John Lewis, the democratic congressman from Georgia who is the last remaining speaker from that day in 1963. We'll maybe let you have JFK - wasn't that high on him though he did a few good things to make up for the bad things - , you don't seem to want the Clintons anymore though you were all hot on them before she became the presumptive president in 2016 and you could pretend how different she was from the President Obama, but you aren't stealing MLK and you can't buy him.

    PS I don't want Reagan or Nixon, GHWB maybe, and nobody wants GWB.

    The real racists are the base voter for Obama. This has been proven though several posts on this and several other threads.

    You really call Jackson a leader and compare him to MLK?

    That's pretty stupid.

    Perhaps you can point out a factual error in what I posted about MLK. Well, actually you can't, and haven't, and so have no credibility on what he fought for.

    as has been rehashed on numerous occasions there's nothing to indicate that Martin's race had anything to do with Zimmermans actions. But that doesn't seem to fit the scenario that some would like to make it to turn it into a pseudo racial injustice.

    Part of the notoriety of the case was because of police inaction and the other was GZ's profiling.

    The irritant with all folks is how so many on the far right wing see skin color first. And then whine and whine about being called racist all the time.

    Sorry, but this is nothing more than the usual bullshit, and my record regarding the Zimmerman case speaks for itself.

    Blacks are what? 136 times more likely to murder a white person than vice versa? Why can't this be mentioned as a topic worth serious consideration and discussion without the mentioner being labelled a racist wannabe Klansman that just doesn't understand black rage?
