It’s an MLK thing, one I Understand all too well

Sunday, 20 January 2008

Once again it’s time for MLK Day (any excuse for the Post Office monopoly to not work). Usually around this time an email critical of MLK circulates. Snopes has addressed it.

I wondered what “Dr.” King’s politics would be like had he lived. The verdict according to the facts in this essay is that America likely would’ve had one more Je$$e “Booty Call” Jack$on-style race-baiting poverty pimp to contend with, albeit an eloquent one.

That MLK was a stentorian “playa” who got far more ass than me is mainly what I admire about him. The rest of his spiel I can take or leave, the Right is going to be blamed for Black failure by the Left no matter what, it’s easier to cry Foul both for Black opportunists and the White liberals that own them.

Do I exaggerate? In private, the benignly racist deputies of Pinellas County don’t refer to Blacks by the n-word. They call them Democrats.
