What happened to King's dream of economic justice?

Aug 29, 2011 Full story: Daily World 187

As the nation honors the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. with a stirring new memorial on the National Mall, let's not obscure one of his most important messages in a fog of sentiment.

He forgot to factor in the average IQ of a typical AA to start with, and never realized that the democrat party would addict them to public assistance to shore up their political power.

As regards the I.Q. of the typical AA,we were not STUPID enough to elect George Bush twicane.We are not stupid enough to consistently elect people who don't have our best interests at heart consistently.AA'S have always voted for people who have the intrests of all people at heart,while you people support those who use and dispise you and then blame AA,s and others for your dumbass stupidity.

Perhaps, King didn't adequately factor in the social backwardness and stupidity of many whites who are dumb enough to starve themselves if it will keep Black folking from eating.
I still recall this white college student mentioned in the book WHITE LIKE ME, who said he'd accept a job paying a mere $1 dollar an hour if it would help restore de jure segregation.
It is not Black intelligence that is most questionable.

Since GW Bush was a two term president, apparently "AA's" were stupid enough to elect him twice.

Fortunately it does not look like they will be stupid enough to give President Obama a second term.

I do not know of one white person that has gone on a hunger strike to keep black people from eating. They have been known to do that so they will be released from prison or allowed to vote though.

So the opinion of a fictional college student from a race baiting author like Tim Wise, who makes his living by inciting racial hatred, actually matters?

I wonder if a book from the impoverished whites of America [or the world] would carry as much weight with you...lol I doubt they agree with the 'white privilege' theory put forth by the Black Consciousness Movement.

So in other words, it is not the black people's fault for criminal behaviour or for creating gigantic ghettos inside the most powerful first world nation that provides opportunity for all, including a mulatto president? It is actually white people that would rather starve than see a black person successful?

I wonder what all the whites that are supporting Col. Allen West think of that. I wonder what Clarence Thomas or Bill Cosby think of that...lol, what a clown you are.

Hello Zaius,

You strike me as very fair-minded. These posts of yours represent the most "fly-on-the-wall" perspective I have seen here. Truly a journalistic flair.

Economics over justice equals terrorism. The American Holocaust goal is to purge not to calculate the suffering.

Well you don't find so many Blacks as whites voting for reactionaries who aid companies in shipping jobs abroad. Ghettoes were created by SEGREGATION, and whites created segregation.
And who are responsible for white criminality...including crimes against humanity?

I have enough sense to know that the same system the oppresses black folk impoverishes whites as well. But many of those whites--poor or not--think it's the "n****rs" fault. Or the fault of gays, Muslims, commies or what have you.
Dr. King was about to organize a MULITRACIAL movement for economic justice before being slain by scumbags with a mentality similar to yours.
As for those cities you mentioned, I have LIVED in some of them. I find more intelligence among the DUMBEST of their residents than I find with you.

The negroes that white reactionaries like you support are those who are contemptuous of their own people, and contemptuous of the poor
And chances are that those whites who voted for Barack Obama, are not stone age racist reactionaries like yourself.

In case you haven't heard, the VAST MAJORITY of African-Americans voted AGAINST GW Bush both times.

Again, that's evidence that Blacks are not lacking in intelligence. We're not the ones who voted for GW or Ronald Reagan.
We're not the ones duped the Tea Party clwon show.

What scares the heck out of me now is that the politicians want to get rid of the EPA.

We know that companies would start polluting like crazy again without regulations.

Just like regulations loosened and investment banking got blurred with commercial banking, and we got the mortgage crisis and b.s like credit default swaps.

Shipping the jobs overseas is really out of control and I hear they are now trying to negotiate some trade deal with South Korea. It seems in these trade deals such as NAFTA and GATT, the American worker suffers.

In a thread called EUROPE: HOW DO YOU VIEW AMERICANS Zaius claimed that Barack Obama was a mediocre mulatto "C" student, even though Obama graduate Magna Cum Laude from Harvard's Law School.

Facts be damned. He simply made this up and peddled the fabrication as fact.

He even had to nerve to claimed that i was a high school drop out. Yet there are people even in Topix who read articles of mine in SOCIAL SCIENCE INFORMATION, PHILOSOPHY EAST AND WEST & INTERNATIONAL QUARTERLY.

Zaius said about a Frenchmna named Attai that he really had no interest in America and hadn't even been interested in visiting America.
Well I met Attai IN PERSON here in Baltimore last summer!!!! And he has a teacher and seveeral friends in America whom he visits often. I've been to France several times, but not as often as Attai has been to America.

He claims that there are "many" Blacks in the Tea Party. In fact, the Tea Party is essentially alien to the national black community, and Black Tea Partiers are a marginal handful.

And he claims (or at least implies) that BLACKS elected GW Bush twice. In fact, the VAST MAJORITY of Blacks voted AGAINST GW both times.

Moreover, Zaius is repeatedly spewing racist venom intended to demean the dignity of Black people.

Zaius' "journalistic flair"? He'd fail as journalist in any respectable establishment of journalism.

After all, a journalist is not supposed to simply make things up, and then peddle his fabrications as facts.

So what has become of Dr. King's dream of economic justice? It has been swamped in a tidal wave of corporate greed.

Meanwhile we do not have one bit of evidence that Mr Obama was anything but a beneficiary of affirmative action and racial quotas. Perhaps we should examine the things he published while editing the Harvard law Review along with his uni transcripts and see what sort of student he actually was...

On the internet, everyone has a 12" cock and an IQ around 165.

That is why we are judged by what we post, and judging by what you have posted all about this forum, high school drop out is generous.

$10 says "Attai" is your sockpuppet.

What I said was that "Americans" elected Bush twice. AA's are Americans, no?

Nonsense. I am a tough love reformer turning the black community upside down, because it is BROKEN.

What happened?

Kings dream was hijacked by progressive democrats that addicted the black people to the dole to shore up their political base.

They are attempting to do the same thing with illegal aliens.

True, brother Savant... all too true.

Unfortunately the masses willingly facilitate this bs through their (our) electoral choices.

That ignoramus Zaiusw doesn't even know that Dr. King was LEFT of most "progressive" Democrats.
He advocated for more sweeping progressive reforms that most liberal Democrats--then or now--were willing to uphold.
By the way, I've actually being doing RESEARCH on this, and have a book on King's social & philosophical worldview that will be soon published.
Privately, I've shown Harrisson, SoulBrother and Attai one chapter.
Again, Zaius is the usual right wing snake oil salesman. Making things up and passing off his fabrications s facts.
