Keep in mind that i didnt write this, some girl i know did. But its scary the views you can find on myspace…
Okay, let me start this off by saying that the man who I called Daddy growing up was black. I am not racist, by any means. The qualities that make me, as a person, today were instilled upon me by my grandfather, a black man. He had certain views on Mr. King, which he passed on to me, & for all of my friends [[I believe there were about 20 of you]] who posted something special to memorialize this man, I feel you should read this bulletin, just as I read all of yours. Please remember that I’m not posting this as an attack on any of your beliefs … if it wasn’t for all the clashing beliefs, this country wouldn’t be as strong & diverse, as it is today.
Four Things you didn’t know about ‘Dr. Martin Luther’ King:
His name wasn’t Martin Luther. It was Michael. It was decided ‘Martin Luther’ had a more prominent ring to it, so he went by that. He never legally changed his name. To this day, he lived and died as Michael King. [[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.]]
While working on his dissertation for his doctoral degree at Boston University, he heavily plagiarized from another author who had done research on a subject similar to King’s. An academic committee later found that over half of King’s work was plagiarized, yet would not revoke his doctrine. King was dead by this time, and the committee ruled that revoking the title would serve no purpose. It was also discovered that King’s famous “I Have A Dream” speech was also not his own. He stole it from a sermon by Archibald Carey, a popular black preacher in the 1950’s. [[MLK’s written text on that day did not include “I Have A Dream”. MLK began giving his written speech, and he was badly bombing. The audience tittered. They were bored and disinterested. Seated behind MLK, gospel singer Mahalia Jackson repeated urged: “Tell them about the dream, Martin.” An outstanding public speaker, MLK knew he had lost the audience. He ditched his prepared text, and - from memory - launched into Rev. Archibald Carey, Jr.'s speech.]]
King was under FBI surveillance for several years (until he died) due to his ties with communist organizations throughout the country. King accepted money from the organizations to fund his movements. In return, King had to appoint communist leaders to run certain districts of his SCLC (Southern Christian Leadership Conference), who then could project their communist ideas to larger audiences. A federal judge in the 60’s ruled that the FBI files on King’s links to communism to remain top-secret until 2027. Senator Jesse Helms appealed to the Supreme Court in 1983 to release the files, so the current bill in the Senate to create the Martin Luther King Federal Holiday could be abolished. He was denied.
One of King’s closest friends, Rev. Ralph Abernathy, wrote a book in 1989 in which he talked about King’s obsession with white prostitutes. King would often use church donations to have drunken sex parties, where he would hire two to three white prostitutes, occasionally beating them brutally. This has also been reported by the FBI agents who monitored King. King was married with four children.
**Yesterday was “Martin Luther King” Day. A day when this country came to a screeching halt so we can have parades and memorials to honor this man, a man that most of the world views as a saint for his role in the civil rights movement.
No other public holiday in the United States honors a single individual.
[[FOR ALL OF YOU SUPPORTERS OF OUR TROOPS]], Of all the great leaders in our Nation’s history - none of them have their own holiday. All of our great war heroes share Memorial Day. All of our great presidents share President’s Day. Yet King - a man who was a phony, a cheater, a traitor, and a sexual degenerate - gets a day of his own.
I have a big problem with that.
I’m not trying to take anything away from African Americans, but I am trying to point out that (1) the vast majority of people are sorely mistaken about Michael King, and (2) that reverse discrimination is blatantly obvious everywhere you look today. Been watching the news lately? President Bush just got himself in some hot water when he spoke out against the University of Michigan for giving black applicants precedence over more qualified white applicants. Now Jesse Jackson, the NAACP, and other black leaders are trashing him, without a doubt planning how they can use this against his re-election campaign. I can’t stand Bush, but think about that - Bush just made a stand for equal human rights, but low and behold - in this case they don’t want to be treated as equals. Make up your minds.
Well friends, he is not a legitimate reverend, he is not a bona fide PhD, and his name isn’t really “Martin Luther King, Jr.” What’s left? Just a sexual degenerate, an America-hating Communist, and a criminal betrayer of even the interests of his own people.
So yes, Happy MLK Day, thanks for making my son miss out on a day of education … a day when I taught him the truth about MLK.
Keep in mind this is not my shit, just some stuff i got on myspace, I just want to see other people’s reactions on this view of MLK, and see if they share the same one… as this, ill post MY views later.
