Will You Let me Speak Honestly about The Actual Martin Luther King Jr ?


As a black man born and raised in the USA I can tell you personally from what I have experience/seen/deduced: the government doesn’t care about African-Americans and their civil liberties.

I say this to correct a fallacy. The FBI didn’t advise Martin Luther King Jr to commit suicide solely because he was helping black people of the nation free themselves from terrorism. They did it because in addition to shining a light on American atrocities to the Negro, he was turning the public into a forum to discuss the nation’s militarization as well as class warfare: two things which are forbidden according to the American social contract.

According to the Church Committee, a 1975 investigation by the U.S. Congress, “From December 1963 until his death in 1968, Martin Luther King, Jr. was the target of an intensive campaign by the Federal Bureau of Investigation to ‘neutralize’ him as an effective civil rights leader.” 

After King gave his “I Have A Dream” speech during the March on Washington on August 28, 1963, the FBI described King as “the most dangerous and effective Negro leader in the country”

When you have popular conservatives vehemently opposed to both Martin Luther King Jr. and having MLK Day being a national holiday, we have to imagine that there are serious reason why even so many decades after his death we are presented with such a photo-shopped depiction of MLK.

“Misled into believing” MLK was a great man: How some Republicans fought against the King holiday

If anyone is interested I would like to talk about Martin Luther King, Jr. behind the white-washed depictions. I like t open the table up for discussion?

Is anyone interested ?

    1. Every time I see one of your lovely comments I think of Seal’s Kiss from a Rose! One of these days we will have to do a duet and sing it together somehow like Patti labelle and Michael McDonald did for on my own!

      I think we are all flawed and sometimes under the extreme pressure of the limelight and championing a cause some of those flaws are exposed and aggrandized. I think what matters is what we leave behind and our legacy – what goes on despite out flaws !!!!!!!

      1. Hi have been, thanks Dave. Yeah, that does seem like something Moore would say. He got burned by a certain publisher when he was writing Top 10…think it was “America’s Choice” or something…and he never finished the series and became somewhat bitter. He’s still one of my favorite comic authors though. 🙂

      2. I love Alan Moore, I love comic books/graphic novel. it has been my dream to team up with an artist and write one. I have weird dreams, I also wanna run down that street in downtown LA shirtless like Anthony Keidis does in the video Under the Bridge. I find that many creative people grow bitter as time goes on, he’s still all kinds of awesome

    1. Thanks for your comment Barbara!

      It’s really fascinating and I wish all this information was made available before hand in class and such. I am going to try to do my best to present some things differently that I feel can really help start something !

  1. I think there is a concerted effort to take down any person who influences people to think and question the norm. Those in power want us to keep drinking beer, keep smoking, keep popping pills and keep watching the Kardashians. Because that keeps us far away from what is really happening.

    1. I couldn’t have said it better myself. It’s a shame though I feel because there is so much that can still be salvaged, there is so much that still can be done, but it seems like nothing is going to happen, we are just going to get fatter as a whole and more drawn into some bullshit
