Here are a few of my thoughts for today, Thursday, the 29th of August 2013….
— Yesterday was the 50th Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s Jr’s “I Have a Dream” speech, it is pathetic how the organizers turned what should have been a wondrous event celebrating the greatness of America, the turning point in a very nasty part of our history, and the inspirational words of one of the greatest Americans into a petty political whine fest.
This dishonors the millions who supported the civil rights movement, the thousands who were beaten and jailed and the hundreds who were murdered, including but not at all limited to Dr. King.
Where was the only serving American of African descent on the US Supreme Court, Clarence Thomas (only the 2nd in the entire history of the Supreme Court)?
Where was the only serving American of African descent in the US Senate, Tim Scott (one of only eight, ever)?
Where was Condoleezza Rice or Colin Powell the only two Secetary of State, who were of African descent?
I failed to see Dr. King’s own niece, Reverend Alveda King, I wonder why.
How many times was the name Travyon Martin mentioned as if he was some martyr who died for a greater cause instead of his lack of discipline, lack of proper role models as parents, and because he bought into a tragic victim-hood/thug mentality that Dr. King would have been horrified to see.
It truly breaks my heart to see what has become of the legacy of this great man, especially by so many who claim to have known him, they may have been around him, been related to him, even been his friends, but they did not know Dr. King’s heart.
— Where are the anti-war protesters? Where is Code Pink? President Obama is about to launch an attack against Syria (seemingly at the command of the Saudi King). If he does that then he has started the same number of wars as that ‘warmonger’ George W. Bush. Just saying.
— If you have a twitter account, you should check out Stacey Dash’s feed. She isn’t just another pretty face, but she has some serious thoughts and she has provoked more then her fair share of idiot haters. Yesterday she was tweeting MLK quotes, and, well the idiots came out of the woodwork or should I say out from under their rocks. So give her your support.
