Had King survived, his break with Obama would have come early.
Back in 1964, under prodding from a BBC interviewer, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. predicted that a Black person might be elected president in 25 years or less. Four years later, shortly before his assassination, King confided  to actor/activist Harry Belafonte that he had come to believe we're integrating into a burning house." We now see that the two notions are not at all contradictory. At least some African Americans have achieved deep penetration of the very pinnacles of white power structures integrating the White House, itself while conditions of life for masses of Black folks deteriorate and the society as a whole falls into deep decay.
The fires lit by the giant triplets of racism, extreme materialism, and militarism that Dr. King identified in his 1967 Beyond Vietnam: Breaking the Silence  speech are consuming the world, now stoked by a Black arsonist-in-chief. Domestic poverty hovers only a fraction of a percentage below the levels of 1965 , with extreme poverty the highest on record. Black household wealth has collapsed to one-twentieth that of whites. Today, more Black men are under the control of the criminal justice system than were slaves in the decade before the Civil War, according to Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow.
Americas Poor Left Out of Fiscal cliff Negotiations
With less than three weeks to go, politicians on both sides of the aisle seem as far apart as ever over how to avoid going over the fiscal cliff. In the midst of their considerations, theres a lot of talk about how would going over the cliff help or hurt the middle class and the wealthiest Americas. But one group that is not getting a lot of attention in the conversation is the very poor.
Poor people are being rendered more and more invisible everyday, says television and radio host Tavis Smiley.Millions of Americans have already gone over the fiscal cliff. Its not about going over a cliff. Its about austerity masquerading as a conversation about a so-called fiscal cliff.
