i was looking through the "bravery" thread and i noticed that everytime someone posted a pic of MLK it was disputed which is just blasphemy.MLK was a man who had the balls to stand for what he believed in and only a coward or a fool would fail to recognize this. he saw an injustice and decided to use words instead of violence, for which he recieved flak from other groups such as the Panthers and nation of islam who were terrorists. i also notice MLK was compared to Jackson and Sharpton which is the farthest stretch i have ever seen. those two blowhards cant jointly hold a candle to MLK's pinky finger.i felt compelled to post because i find it disturbing some people cant see the kind of man MLK was. this world would be better off with many more men with integrity like his.

                                                                             thank you

I'm inclined to agree with the OP, however, I'd like to see the context in which MLK is being bashed...

You mean Hoover's?  Some of his files were modified to back up his campaign against  MLK.  Of course, there are also photos of  Hoover wearing women's clothes, but that has nothing to do with the subject at hand.

The staff at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Papers Project discovered a lot of plagiarism in Martin Luther King's writings and in a 1991 article in THE JOURNAL OF AMERICAN HISTORY said that "plagiarism was a general pattern evident in nearly all of his academic writings" including his doctoral dissertation.

+1; MLK certainly was no saint - he cheated on his wife and was a commie in all but name. Not to mention he plagiarized most of his papers (including his doctor dissertation).

However, he did do a lot for his cause, and that's more than most people can say.

You got it in before I could. MFMLK




Commie either by known choice or association. His closest advisor Stanley Levison was a Communist, as was his assistant Jack O’Dell. He was harsh on Diem and the South and believed that Ho Chi Minh should have been the legitimate ruler of Vietnam.

A well known adulterer and so-called Pastor? Give me a break.


And his tactics also leave a lot to be desired. Straight out of the moonbat 2007 playbook. Kumbaya my ass.

MFMLK



As for the "cause", again, MFMLK. When I was a kid we had Black owned businesses. Black grocery stores, dry cleaners, taxi companies, you name it. Our kids werent in the streets in gangs and we as a whole had none of the societal issues we have today. The only problem Black Americans had in those days was Jim Crow, and there indeed were ways to deal with his ass.

Today those Black businesses are all gone, any advancement by all those who gave so much for so long is only a museum memory. Sure a few have millions, rappers, ball players, etc, and there are some Blacks in boardrooms on Fortune 500 lists, but as a whole Black Americans are much worse off since we overcame than before MLK had his crack induced fantasy dream.

MLK took the wrong approach to a limited problem, and today we have a friggin mess. MFMLK.

Im thinking a speech cannot be considered doing a good thing. Its a bunch of words, not deeds.


As for encouraging nonviolent protest, , thats still not "doing a good thing".


His "non-violent" platform was bullshit. He did the same thing then the kommie pinkos do now. They want to incite a riot, but wont fight their own battles. He did the same thing the hippies have been doing for 30 years, the same thing the klan does today. They all want me to spend my tax dollars to defend their miserable asses with my LEO's, usually someplace where they dont even pay taxes.

And its not called violence when its self defense, its intelligence. He was not only a pussy, too sorry to stand up and fight for what he claimed to believe in, he was stupid. Taking ass whippings is never "doing a good thing".

Other than destroying the Black family and the Black community, and creating the groundwork for modern PC bullshit, was there actually anything he ever did (besides prostitutes)? And was any of it actually that good?

Directions on how to get to the downtown court house in any large city in America:

Get off the freeway and look for MLK Ave then turn left. Procede 5 blocks and turn left on MLK Street. Go 4 more blocks and turn left on MLK boulevard. The court house is on the left on MLK Court.
