LMAO
and how did that work out? how many black folks voted for Mitt?
if the blacks aren't buying.....
blacks can't buy... but if MLK Jr., registered to vote it would have been as a Republican in Alabama simply because the Democrats would not allow black voters. We know his father was a Republican for sure. Seems strange that no one can find if MLK Jr. was registered one way or another, don't you find that odd?

My husband was-- as in 'was' a plumber and his father owned his own plumbing company. They are the ones responsible for laying the deep tunnels in Chicago for the people to get running water. Yep even the Sout side. Most of the time they had to have guns in order to keep the Negroes from stealing and from getting shot. They paid off the democrat politicians to clear the sites. They paid off the democrats to allow Negroes under affirmative action to stand and watch, and then paid for their drunk black asses. They paid off the democrat politicians to approve the job. They paid off the democrat politicians to work. That is what is called the Chicago way. My father-in-law retired at 58, his son, my husband now owns a business with his Russian partner-who came to this country in the late 80's with 20 dollars in his pocket, but some how unlike the blacks made his way-for 13 years now they have had a successful business, it has nothing to do with unions or plumbing. I am a recruiter for Retail businesses. And you are an old femi-nazi, ready for the grave. Did you see your fellow Nazis in California, they are ready to euthanize you.

You're going to try that fable again you goddamn liar? Criminal charges were dropped against the Black Panthers before Obama was inaugurated and before Holder was even confirmed. Why? Because there was no voter intimidation. Why was there no voter intimidation? Probably because these guys were standing there and giving any right wingers who would have harassed voters pause.

And one more thing, old government worker-it appears that you are the heart of soul of the liberal party--YOU HATE PEOPLE THAT WORK--the Democrat Motto. Shame on you. I don't care if I am washing toilets, it is a job. Shame on you. You bring shame to normal people who want to work. Again shame on you. I can't say it enough. You are a poor excuse of a person, and as we all know you suck the government teet and Debil.

Houston group says Martin Luther King Jr. was a Republican

....we sought historical expertise, including by asking Thomas Jackson, a history professor at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro and author of From Civil Rights to Human Rights: Martin Luther King, Jr., and the Struggle for Economic Justice, for his take on the video.

He told us that Alveda King's description of the Republican Party's history was on the mark. "The Party of (Abraham) Lincoln defended black rights most vocally in the 1860s and 1870s, then abandoned the cause when the Democrats and the (Ku Klux) Klan defeated Republican state governments in the South. Blacks started their historic switch to the Democrats during the New Deal," which were economic programs implemented in the 1930s under President Franklin Roosevelt in response to the Great Depression.

But Jackson said that he would not consider King a Republican, calling him instead a " 'tax and spend' democratic socialist."

"He wanted the nation to spend billions of dollars directly to employ the unemployed when the private sector failed, and a vigorous mixture of affirmative action and anti-poverty programs championed by the liberal-left, and targeted federal spending in impoverished areas, especially the nation's slums," Jackson said.

David Garrow — author of Bearing the Cross: Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, which won the 1987 Pulitzer Prize for biography — advised against assigning King to either party. "It's simply incorrect to call Dr. King a Republican," Garrow told us.

However, he said he wouldn't call King a Democrat, either, because he had "very positive feelings" about Republican Richard Nixon in the late 1950s and "extremely positive feelings" about Republican Nelson Rockefeller, the New York governor who later served as vice president. Also, Garrow said, King became "a very harsh critic" of Democratic President Lyndon Johnson over his escalation of the Vietnam War and "wouldn't necessarily have backed (Democratic presidential nominee) Hubert Humphrey in '68 had he (King) lived."

We asked Garrow about the 2006 Post article's statements that King had voted for Democratic presidential candidates John F. Kennedy in 1960 and Lyndon Johnson in 1964. He said there is little doubt that King did so.

Things began to change during the “Great Depression” of the 1930s with Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal. 71% of African Americans voted for a Democrat for president even though only 44% considered themselves to be members of the Democratic Party.
By the mid 1960s, the majority of Blacks had become Democrats.

all good and paste for you, but where is MLK Jr registered as a democrat or republican. We already know about MLK Sr. He was a registered Republican. I said that, no need to bicker the point. I am a registered democrat, but haven't voted for one since 1992. So your point?

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.

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.
It was Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, George H W Bush and George W Bush push for racially segregated , oppressive policies towards African-Africans --keep them confined to urban ghettos, cut off funding to city and state programs that help the poor, push them into drugs and dependency, keep them poor, desperate ,and locked up in jails by attaching to minor drug offenses heavy prison sentence penalties.

Go lie to your crotch like the women do, Idiot.

Wiki - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Panther_vo...

"....in January 2009, less than two weeks before the Bush administration left office, the civil rights division of the Department of Justice filed a civil suit under the voting rights act against four defendants,...

The case remained open when the Obama administration took office a few weeks later.

In April 2009 Bartie Bull, a former civil rights lawyer who was serving as a poll watcher at the polling station where the incident occurred, submitted an affidavit at Justice's request supporting the lawsuit, stating that he considered it to have been the most severe instance of voter intimidation he had ever encountered.[2][5]

When none of the defendants who were charged appeared in court to answer the charges, the career attorneys pursuing the lawsuit assumed that they would win it by default. However the career attorneys' move to pursue a default judgment against the defendants was overruled by two of their line superiors, Loretta King who was acting Assistant Attorney General and Steve Rosenbaum, Acting Deputy Assistant Attorney General.

Hans A. von Spakovsky, stated that internal e-mails from the Department of Justice released under a Freedom of Information Act request show that political appointees were "intimately involved" in the decision to drop the case, including former deputy attorney general David Ogden, Associate Attorney General Thomas Perrelli and attorney general Eric Holder, and that Perez may have committed perjury by denying this in his testimony before the Civil Rights Commission.

In October 2010, a draft report from the Civil Rights Commission was posted on the political website TPM Muckraker, stating that political officials had been extensively involved in the decision to dismiss the case, and that the Department of Justice had attempted to conceal their involvement.[12] Civil Rights Commission chairman Gerald A. Reynolds confirmed that the draft was authentic, but said that it was not the most current version of the draft, and declined to immediately release the newest version or describe what revisions had been made to it.[13] The Justice Department has denied the allegations in the report.

In July 2012, Judge Reggie Walton dismissed the Justice Department's denial, finding that political appointees did interfere with prosecution of the New Black Panther Party"
