Mary it is really a well written article. You did fail to mention a few things though.
I'm sure you know that every January, the media go into a kind of almost spastic frenzy of adulation for the so-called "Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr." King has had this national holiday declared in his honor, an honor accorded to no other American, not Washington, not Jefferson, not Lincoln.(Washington and Lincoln no longer have holidays -- they share the generic-sounding "President's Day.") But did you know that a liberal judge has sealed the FBI files on King until the year 2027. What are they hiding? Let's take a look at this modern-day plastic god.
Born in 1929, King was the son of a Black preacher known at the time only as "Daddy King." "Daddy King" named his son Michael. In 1935, "Daddy King" had an inspiration to name himself after the Protestant reformer Martin Luther. He declared to his congregation that henceforth they were to refer to him as "Martin Luther King" and to his son as "Martin Luther King, Jr." None of this name changing was ever legalized in court. "Daddy" King's son's real name is to this day Michael King.
There are many other truths that the media tends to ignore about certain things. I don't know if you could say that is right or wrong per say. But it is obviously omitted in articles puposefully or unknowingly. There are lots of facts out there. Have youi chacked any of them out? I have and I make sure that my children do also.
This has just been a small little bit of food to chew on. Do with it what you want. I'm not here to judge anyone or take away from anything they do. I am just sharing. Thank you for your time.
