Mr. King sought civil rights and not entitlement rights.  Too many folks, black and white, have lost that distinction.

Martin Luther King, Jr. stood for more than the “entitlement culture”

 

By Wendell Dawson, Editor, AVOC, Inc.

 

Martin Luther King, Jr., like all men, was not perfect.  He made a great contribution to civil rights in the United States and deserves honor and memorials for that.

 

What he stood for is interpreted by many different folks in many different ways.  I am not sure he would be a big fan of the Cynthia McKinneys and Jesse Jacksons of today.

 

Mr. King sought civil rights and not entitlement rights.  Too many folks, black and white, have lost that distinction.

INSIGHT

"I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: 'We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.'... I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character... And if America is to be a great nation this must become true." ---Martin Luther King, Jr.

Editor's Note: Martin King asked that his children "not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." Yet Jesse Jackson (one of King's lieutenants during those tumultuous '60s civil rights protests), Cynthia McKinney, Louis Farrakhan, Barack Obama, Al Sharpton, Harold Ford, Maxine Waters, Sheila Jackson-Lee and most other black political and social leaders today, advocate for government programs and policies that judge by skin color alone, regardless of character. The Democrat Party has, in effect, inculcated many black folks with the notion that they can't make it on their own, that they must rely on Democrats for their welfare---relegating these constituents to a different kind of "plantation," but enslavement just the same.

As for the expanding list of conservatives who have gained national stature (and happen to be black)---Justice Clarence Thomas, Secretary of State Colin Powell and his successor, Condoleezza Rice, Ken Blackwell, Michael Steele, Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, Alan Keyes, Ward Connerly, Don Scoggins, Alvin Williams, Star Parker, Jesse Lee Peterson, Larry Elder, etc., they are castigated by the Left as "Uncle Toms" and "puppets."


THE FOUNDATION

"One single object...[will merit] the endless gratitude of
the society: that of restraining the judges from usurping
legislation." ---Thomas Jefferson
