The more that I read about Martin Luther King Jr, the more that I realize that we don't have any real black leaders today.
I don't see anybody around here today that I would even call a black leader.

Dr. King was an open minded person, and that's what it takes to be a real leader.

Martin Luther King Jr. writes this about the 1964 Republican National Convention:
"The Republican Party geared its appeal and program to racism, reaction, and extremism. All people of goodwill viewed with alarm and concern the frenzied wedding at the Cow Palace of the KKK with the radical right. The “best man” at this ceremony was a senator whose voting record, philosophy, and program were anathema to all the hard-won achievements of the past decade. Senator Goldwater had neither the concern nor the comprehension necessary to grapple with this problem of poverty in the fashion that the historical moment dictated. On the urgent issue of civil rights, Senator Goldwater represented a philosophy that was morally indefensible and socially suicidal. While not himself a racist, Mr. Goldwater articulated a philosophy which gave aid and comfort to the racist. His candidacy and philosophy would serve as an umbrella under which extremists of all stripes would stand. In the light of these facts and because of my love for America, I had no alternative but to urge every Negro and white person of goodwill to vote against Mr. Goldwater and to withdraw support from any Republican candidate that did not publicly disassociate himself from Senator Goldwater and his philosophy."

Do still hold Dr King in high reguards trump suckers...

Catdaddy Dr. King was friends with Republican Richard Nixon, Dr. King supported Republican president Dwight Eisenhower.

Most of the votes against the Civil Rights Act of 1964 came from the Democratic party.
