Who is paying for this obelisk for MLK? The article says it will have his speeches on it, I wonder if it will have everything about him on it?

Read what Ralph Abernathy said about MLK using SCLC money to buy prostitutes, and he called himself a minister of God, and Valdosta is electing a monument to the fraud.

I just want to see how long it will be before the local residents vandalize the park like they did Saunders Park and the Mildred Hunter Center.

Most MLK communities do not respect the 60's MLK.. Most of our kids will expect handouts, like most MLK today surroundings. This Monument is beautiful.....

You know who's paying for it and it ain't the SCLC or NAACP or any of the other black groups. It's the taxpayers of Valdosta, most of whom don't live anywhere near the "memorial".

I had heard that their was lot of hatred here but this is out of control. Find me the one person in history that has been honored without a skeleton in their closet besides Christ? Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, Kennedy, Bush, Clinton, c'mon which one? No we can not overlook their flaws but let us not overlook the good that they did as well.

You still don't get it do you? He stole SCLC money to screw prostitutes, and you think this criminal, MLK, is a great man?
