Dr. King when shot was moving into a new phase of activism, concentrating on poverty, labor issues. Non-color-specific. That's why they shot him. Fighting to let black people vote, the system could handle that. When the black vote threatened their schemes, they just brought in the Supreme Court to nullify democracy (cf. Florida, 2000).

But Dr. King with his eloquence fighting for white workers as well as black? That they could not tolerate.

What traitors you bastards are talking crap about the greatest Yank of the 20th century, who fought for all our freedom. But freedom means nothing to you dittoheads. All you know is cynical rushoid snarkiness, negativity and bigotry.

A$$holes.

^Cosigned, they don't fight they incarceration and false allegations as is suppose to. Martin Luther King would have marched/ protested and make it world renown.

However, young niccas are changing.

In 2013 you have:

Solid Ground defines Institutional Racism as “the systematic distribution of resources, power and opportunity in our society to the benefit of people who are white and the exclusion of people of color.” Present-day racism was built on a long history of racially distributed resources and ideas that shape our view of ourselves and others. It is a hierarchical system that comes with a broad range of policies and institutions that keep it in place.

The US Is Coming to Terms with Institutional Racism

Posted on August 13, 2013 by Bill Dwight

Yesterday, two events relating to institutional racism coincided and competed for headlines. A federal judge ruled New York City’s infamous stop-and-frisk policy unconstitutional because it amounted to racial profiling by targeting African-Americans and Latinos. And US Attorney General Eric Holder announced an end-run around “draconian” Congressional drug laws by ordering the Justice Department to discontinue aggressive pursuit of low-level, non-violent drug offenders.

Both events were marked by explicit condemnation of the very real racial injustices of these institutions.

Judge Shira Scheindlin wrote in her decision,“It is impermissible to subject all members of a racially defined group to heightened police enforcement because some members of that group are criminals.”

83% of the stops made by the New York police between 2004 and 2012 were of African-Americans and Latinos. Around 90% of the people subjected to the stops were never charged.

Mincing no words, Judge Scheindlin held Mayor Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Kelly accountable.“I also conclude that the city’s highest officials have turned a blind eye to the evidence that officers are conducting stops in a racially discriminatory manner,” she said.

Likewise, Attorney General Holder, speaking before the American Bar Association, emphasized the racial sentencing disparities that account for the obscenely disproportionate incarceration rates of people of color.“People of color often face harsher punishment than their peers,” he declared.“In recent years, black male offenders have received sentences nearly 20% longer than those imposed on white males convicted of similar crimes. This isn’t just unacceptable. It is shameful,” Holder stressed.

Here are portions of Holder’s policy announcement:

I think he as well as other civil rights learns of that time, would be ashamed of what has become of African Americans.

Anyway:

No Talking Points: Don Lemon Lists 5 Ways Black People Need To Change To Combat Racism

According to Don Lemon, black people have to be perfect in order to improve race relations in this country. In a recent “No Talking Points” segment, Lemon offered his support to the following criticism of the African-American community by FOX News bigot, Bill O’Reilly:“The reason there is so much violence and chaos in the black precincts is the disintegration of the African- American family.[...] Raised without much structure, young black men often reject education and gravitate towards the street culture, drugs, hustling, gangs. Nobody forces them to do that, again, it is a personal decision.”

Never mind the country’s history of institutional racism and systematic oppression. Don Lemon took Bill O’Reilly’s ignorant assertion further by listing five ways black people need to change in order to “fix our community.” In doing so, Lemon inadvertently revealed just how little he thinks of his race. His words:

“Here’s number five. Pull up your pants. If you’re sagging, I mean — I think it’s your self-esteem that is sagging and who you are as a person it’s sagging. Young people need to be taught respect and there are rules.[...]

Number four now is the n-word. I understand poetic license, but consider this: I hosted a special on the n-word, suggesting that black people stop using it and that entertainers stop deluding yourselves or themselves and others that you’re somehow taking the word back.[...]

Now number three. Respect where you live. Start small by not dropping trash, littering in your own communities. I’ve lived in several predominantly white neighborhoods in my life, I rarely, if ever, witnessed people littering. I live in Harlem now, it’s an historically black neighborhood, every single day I see adults and children dropping their trash on the ground when a garbage can is just feet away. Just being honest here.[...]

Number two, finish school. You want to break the cycle of poverty? Stop telling kids they’re acting white because they go to school or they speak proper English.[...]

And number one, and probably the most important, just because you can have a baby, it doesn’t mean you should. Especially without planning for one or getting married first. More than 72 percent of children in the African-American community are born out of wedlock. That means absent fathers. And the studies show that lack of a male role model is an express train right to prison and the cycle continues. So, please, black folks, as I said if this doesn’t apply to you, I’m not talking to you. Pay attention to and think about what has been presented in recent history as acceptable behavior. Pay close attention to the hip-hop and rap culture that many of you embrace. A culture that glorifies everything I just mentioned, thug and reprehensible behavior, a culture that is making a lot of people rich, just not you. And it’s not going to.”

Did it not occur to you that both are right?

There is institutional racism. Yep. Persistent discrimnination despite Civil Rights Bill, etc.

But also.. is there no dysfunctional behavior in the black community? Glorifying “swag” and denigrating education. That is real.

Much of the social dysfunction was socially engineered. Positive activists were killed, gangstaism encouraged, the inner city allowed to decay, etc.

But black people, many of them, fell right into line with this BS. And now if anyone criticizes black youth for being exactly the dysfunctional gangsta a-holes the system wants, you get pissy?

You're confused.

I am not interested in whatever you have to say. There might be dysfunctional behavior, but racist bigotry has effected all African Americans, from all social background during any time frame of American history.

So, as I was saying before, you are good at making up excuses.

Dysfunctional behavior in African American youth is partially due to having no prospect, which is spawn by institutional racism. Which is a systematic venue of American history.



Now go and eat sh-t.
