Why would you type praise J. Edgar Hoover when he was a hypocrite, violated Constitutional law, and slandered people as communists. The FBI is a slick, anti-civil liberties organization since its inception. Dr. King explicitly condemned Communism even as late as 1967. Using your logic, many Founding Fathers were slave owners and racists, so we should eliminate all monuments of them (tear them down). I believe Dr. King committed adultery, but I don't believe in the hooker story from the FBI alone. I need more evidence. His adultery can't be justified, but he did do some legitimate actions just like other leaders.

Also, Dr. King didn't start riots, but condemned them. It's a known fact that many government agents agitated conflicts in Memphis in order to discredit King's efforts among the sanitation workers. Dr. King wanted peaceful resolutions in society. I'm not saying that he's perfect, but none of us are.

Savage racist, we remember Joe Louis and his accomplishments. We just don't follow your racist views about black people though. There are tons of African Americans that can be in a memorial. Also, black people then and now are multifaceted in working as teachers, lawyers, doctors, scholars, business leaders, other professionals, blue collar workers, and a host of other occupations.

Thanks to government enforced racial quotas.

Since MLK was a troublemaker I think we should abandon this whole notion of Civil Rights starting with YOURS. I say in order to protect our republic, a full investigation into your past and present be put on a government watch list. Your practice of religion or lack thereof should come under government scrutiny and your wages garnished accordingly. Because of WHAT and WHO you are, and your opinions, we should appoint police to monitor your movements as well as those whom you associate with. At will without reason or permit they can enter your home and take you and your family away.

I'm sure you'll comply. You wouldn't want to make trouble would you?

There is a race of people that have proven that they cannot handle the same rights as the rest of us because they are uneducated, undisciplined, lazy, irresponsible, dependent, and violent. Our founding fathers knew this. And deep down all of us know this.

The Civil Rights Act has done more harm to this country than anything else since its inception.

Do you mean the Homestead Act, the GI Bill, and Pell Grant system. Frankily, these items aren't private services at all (or folks getting up by their own bootstraps alone). The Homestead Act gave Western settlers a lot of free goodies to settle west, it gave people land, and give people less of an tax burden on acquiring access to colleges. Also, straight up explicit, racial quotas alone are banned by the Supreme Court. Many black people have risen to the top of their professions via hard work and determination not racial quotas. It's hypocritical for your type to obsess with affirmative action, but you won't say a syllable about the tax breaks for the wealthy, bailouts for Wall Street, or other forms of corporate pirating by the elite. Corporate corruption harming people across continents is far worst than affirmative action (and I agree with affirmative action for the poor and minorities in certain circumstances).

So to use that race card as an excuse to imply black inferiority doesn't cut it since geniuses exist in the black race (in America plus worldwide too). You slick language can never inhibit black progress and your words will never deny the true black legacy. See, the black legacy is strong and it's about overcoming obstacles. It's about refuting nefarious stereotypes and it's about the promotion of true unity among black men and black women. That's Power and an authentic form of real black power is what you hate since you want division and you are afraid of radical improvements of the black community. Black heroes and great black professionals were here long before affirmative action existed and they continue to exist today.

The wealthy are putting something into this country. Like jobs and enormous taxes. And if you have so many black heroes (O.J.?) then you don't need affirmative action. Asians don't. Hispanics don't. Why do you?

WEB Dubois didn't use affirmative action and Booker T. Washington didn't use it. The late Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall didn't use it and black people worldwide don't use it either presently. I have no problem with it if it's utilized for a legitimate reason. Some of the wealthy are doing nothing to improve the economy. Some of them are hoarding wealth, having tax breaks, promoting unfair trade agreements, promoting eugenics, and promoting immoral wars worldwide. Also, jobs can be created by small business and public revenues without assistance by the super wealthy anyway. We need private and yes public assistance (in investments, infrastructure development, etc.) in order to acheive financial development. Also, many Hispanics and Asians have experienced affirmative action programs for decades. Your neo-con talking points don't work on a real smart brother. We brothers and sisters are on to your deceptive game. We don't believe in your distorted, bigoted precepts. We want justice and liberty not reactionary rhetoric.

People like me have outline self reflections all of the time. It's people like you that want to deny any successes made by black people and use any mistake by some black people as an excuse to level blanket, stereotypical statements about black people. Also, many of the super wealthy aren't straight arrow. Some of them are very evil I have the free speech right to expose the crimes of some in the super rich category.

You don't really know anything about anyone's race, so don't come here and pretend as if you do.

There is a lot that many of us claim to know, but that doesn't make it all true. For example there is also a race of people who have destroyed the Catholic church with sexual perversions and other trespasses. They have proven to be greedy, hateful, and warmongering. They have stolen labor, land, slaves, oil, and continue to threaten the natural environment for selfish reasons. Their paranoia has lead to their own fear of blacks, gays, Mexicans, Communists, liberals, Socialists, Muslims, Russians, Jews, Chinese, the government, Harry Potter, calories, bed bugs, themselves, and just about everything else in existence. Now they're afraid of Civil Rights, because someone black might get to achieve something they feel entitled to.

You don't want to play this game with me do you?

Black people are genetically incapable of controlling themselves to the level of a civilized society. Show me anywhere on earth that they have.
