But that doesn't mean King made public his political preferences. In his book, Garrow writes that during the 1960 race between Kennedy and Republican Richard Nixon, King declined to endorse either nominee — even after Kennedy associates interceded with officials in Georgia to help secure King's release from jail on a probation violation. The closest King came to that was a few days before the election when he released a statement that said: "I want to make it palpably clear that I am deeply grateful to Senator Kennedy for the genuine concern he expressed....(He) exhibited moral courage of a high order."
King's father, however, was so grateful to Kennedy that he announced he was shifting his traditionally Republican presidential preference to vote for Kennedy, according to Garrow's book.
King was more vocal about the candidates in the 1964 presidential election, when Johnson faced GOP nominee Barry Goldwater, who as an Arizona senator had voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Garrow told us that King "certainly did all but explicitly endorse LBJ in '64 and strongly criticize the Goldwater candidacy." Garrow writes in Bearing the Cross that King urged his supporters to vote against Goldwater and all GOP candidates who did not disassociate from him.
According to the King Online Encyclopedia, from Stanford University's Martin Luther King Jr. Research and Education Institute, King campaigned for Johnson and welcomed his win.

you're not going to be able to fill the hole you dug.
So you are fabricating? If I don't know if MLK Jr was registered to vote and you can't find any proof that he was registered to vote, what does that tell you? It says you can cut and paste all day without having an original thought. Continue on.

Blacks were predominantly Republicans until the late 1930s.
In fact, unanimously Republicans. It was only after the Great Depression and the birth of government dependency that the majority switched parties to became Democrats.
Look it up. You might learn something today.
Fortunately, more are coming back to the party who elected them into public office and passed every single piece of civil rights legislation from the Civil War until the Democrats realized they were a good voting bloc in the mid 20th century.
Wiki - Fredrick Douglass: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frederick_Dougla...

"At the 1888 Republican National Convention, Douglass became the first African American to receive a vote for President of the United States in a major party's roll call vote."

Hi Johnny!



You better not get a pilots license, because if you try navigate somewhere, you will end up out of fuel in the wrong direction.

You make a perfect Democrat though!

Wow! Obama is trying to finally do something about the economy after five years?

The huckster calls the Keystone Pipeline 50 jobs.

How does one negotiate with a joker like Obama?

The racist president is an idiot.

Il ya toujours une confusion pour les Américains que les ventouses du sexe d'un autre être humain est divorcé de sa boussole morale. Pourquoi avez-vous imaginer que vous avez des relations sexuelles pour être en forme de coupe, sucé, léché, en premier lieu?

Oui, je l'ai fait. Mais cela soulève la question de savoir pourquoi vous souhaitez payer autant pour me servir dans les rares nuits que vous prenez votre femme dans un restaurant français po .. um ... Connecticut. 25 dollars une plaque est plutôt beaucoup pour un homme avide de jouir de ses escargots. But you are right in one thing, at least, I am the bull, you are forever the calf's liver.
