Today we celebrate MLK day.


IMHO we should be celebrating Fredrick Douglas day.

Why not both?


And Crispus Attucks, and Rosa Parks, and Thurgood Marshall, and hundreds if not thousands of Americans whose contributions to our society have been, and are, ignored because of the hue of their skin?

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is remembered today not as a "Saint," but as a "Prophet" and a "Martyr" .. entirely appropriately ...

MLK was a talker


Fredrick Douglas was a doer.

MLK's "talk" evidently did a lot.


And, BTW, Douglas was best known on the lecture circuit.  You need to study more.

Some of you "kinder gentler" Republicans might want to look up what the Republican Gov. of Maine--in office for 2 weeks--told the NAACP about him attending any MLK Day events.


(hint: it involved their lips and his glutes.)


 


Yeah, you guys really know how to "reach out to minorities" and populate a "big tent."


 


LOL

"MLK was a talker


 


Fredrick Douglas was a doer."


 


 


 


Really?


Then who was that man who looked a lot like Dr King who was leading all those dangerous
Civil Rights demonstrations?


 


You don't even need to read history to kow what Dr King did--just look at the photos and video.


 PBS has several excellent documentaries on Dr KIng--including the portions of "Eyes On The Prize"  (a history of the American Civil Rights Movement)  devoted to him.

What dangerous demonstrations did MLK participate in?


He was a Kennedy Uncle Tom.

Oh, come on....


Don't write idiocy.


Selma.  Birmingham.  He was imprisoned and mistreated in jail.  He was hounded by the J. E. Hoover FBI.  And, finally, he was assasinated.


 


Are you too young, or just too hard headed to get it?


You bring no honor on yourself or your politics by slandering a great man.
