The OTHER Views of MLK

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:

  1. 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.]]

  2. 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.]]

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

Bush doesn’t have a re-election campaign.

Plus, you might want to make that disclaimer at the top a little more prominent. I completely skipped over, and I just skimmed it so I also missed the one at the bottom. Luckily I looked twice.

Okay someone mashed Deezo assist, and here I am.

Something that caught my eye…

“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.”

For one, being that he’s been elected for two terms, he cannot be re-elected. And really, even if he were able to be elected for a third term, do you really think people are gonna vote for him this time around? I’m pretty sure people could think of many different reasons (worser ones at that) to keep him out of office had the chance presented itself. Apparently someone hasn’t been watching the news lately.

Something else that caught my eye…

“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.”

So it’s not okay to honor an individual that was able to bring people together, but it’s okay to honor Presidents that were slave owners? To quote Dave Chappelle…

“Dollars are basically baseball cards with slave owners on em!”

And is Columbus Day not considered a public holiday?

Now whether or not all this is true or not, I dunno, I don’t care. I just see the aftermath of it, being that I can hit on a White girl in public without getting my ass beat. That’s a good thing. I have a bunch of White friends. That’s a good thing. Maybe (if this is all true) him plagiarizing someone else is what was needed for such change to happen. If she hates “Michael King” that much, than I had better see her make a bulletin for Columbus Day. That’s for damn sure. Cause some FOR REAL awareness please. Hell she for damn sure better not celebrate Thanksgiving. Shit what the fuck? Cmon man.

Who the hell cares if his name is Michael? and so the guy liked hookers, no one is perfect

He changed the world for the better, and nothing is going to change that fact

I haven’t lost any respect for him

That Dave Chapelle quote is the truth. Which is very fucked.



this is just a silly post by some angry lady with some extra time.

Some of this has been said already but just to clarify-

  1. Bush cannot not get re-elected.
  2. There is no such thing as reverse racism. This is a somewhat common misconception occurring often when people think racism only happens to minorities. It exists towards any race being discriminated against.
  3. This woman does not seem very educated. She has not taken enough time, as Mandel has noticed, to see that Columbus Day is a national holiday.
  4. Regardless of what she may know/ make up about him- if she looks at result, the guys a saint. He spoke amazingly, for peace, and brought a lot of it.

You should nunchaku this girl off your friend list Jetay and maybe be a little more reasonable with what you spend your time reading. I feel like I just wasted ten minutes of my life qualifying a great man, because of a useless post. As the top reads, prob a silly post by some angry lady. Nunchaku’s dude. :nunchuck:

P.S. The guy spoke great speeches besides “I have a dream.” I just heard “Beyond Vietnam” the other day. Frickin wow. Seriously. Just wow. I was stunned.

You have said alot of stupid shit Theo… when do i get to Nunchaku you?

But I thought you guys already knew… everything that’s posted on the internet is true.

Speaking of Dave Chappelle:

Play the victim, be the victim.

Educate yourself and be above those you see oppressing you. Being young, black, and pissed off should serve as a motivation, not an end. Use your youth well.

This coming from a White Man. I don’t give a fuck.

It’s what I am.

And I ain’t gonna apologize.

Just when I thought the internet had exhausted its supply of asinine faux-counter culture, Jetay gives me a fresh new victim. Thanks man, I appreciate it.

Actually, “Daddy King” was also born Michael King. Regardless, I can’t help but think the author is trying to be a wise ass. Look up any official document from the 60s (court papers, depositions, police reports, etc.) and you’ll see Martin Luther King Jr., not Michael King Jr. Not even the government cared whether or not he had officially changed his name back in '35.

The issue of plagiarism in King’s dissertation is true. As for his famous speech vs Carey’s, the general consensus is that this claim has little basis. They both end with an excerpt from Samuel Francis Smith’s “America” and make similar use of the phrase “Let freedom ring”, and MLK was likely inspired by Carey’s sermons. But adopting a similar style does not constitute plagiarism. The author’s claims regarding the speech are far too broad.

First off, J. Edgar Hoover had a history of targeting civil rights leaders, who he deemed “subversive” threats. Hoover was Dick Chaney before Chaney graduated high school.

Second, this was post-McCarthyist America. In addition to the fact that commie witch hunts were still rampant, the emerging political left was sympathetic toward Communism’s socialist undertones. Joining the Communist party become popular within certain social circles (my dad even attended Communist-sponsored gatherings while in college, but only because they had great jazz bands). As for the SCLC, only two known associates (Stanley Levison and Jack O’Dell) were found to be former Communist party members.

Finally, Jesse Helms was an outspoken supporter of racial segregation. He filed his appeal out of devotion to his Southern constituents, not because there was any real evidence proving MLK was a Communist. The FBI tried its best to find ANYTHING linking the two, even making shit up. Yet it never succeeded.

While I hate to use such harsh words, I’d swear this paragraph was written by McCarthy himself. To paraphrase my thoughts as the internet taught me: stfu u don’t no wut yer talking about!!!

Has the author even read the book? I ask because Abernathy said nothing of the sort:

"Much has been written in recent years about my friend’s weakness for women. Had others not dealt with the matter in such detail, I might have avoided any commentary. Unfortunately, some of these commentators have told only the bare facts without suggesting the reasons why Martin might have indulged in such behavior. They have also left a false impression about the range of his activities.

Martin and I were away more often than we were at home; and while this was no excuse for extramarital relations, it was a reason. Some men are better able to bear such deprivations than others, though all of us in SCLC headquarters had our weak moments. We all understood and believed in the biblical prohibition against sex outside of marriage. It was just that he had a particularly difficult time with that temptation."

"A recent biography has suggested without quite saying so that Martin had affairs with white women as well as black. Such a suggestion is without foundation. I can say with the greatest confidence that he was never attracted to white women and had nothing to do with them, despite the opportunities that may have presented themselves.

Of course, J. Edgar Hoover became preoccupied with Martin’s private life early in the civil rights movement, and this preoccupation was a significant factor in Hoover’s pathological hatred of him and the movement he headed. Early in the game the FBI began to bug our various hotel rooms, hoping to discover our strategy but also to gather evidence that could be used against Martin personally.

I remember in particular a stay at the Willard Hotel in Washington, where they not only put in audio receivers, but video equipment as well. Then, after collecting enough of this “evidence” to be useful, they began to distribute it to reporters, law officers, and other people in a position to hurt us. Finally, when no one would do Hoover’s dirty work for him, someone in the FBI put together a tape of highly intimate moments and sent them to Martin. Unfortunately ?? and perhaps this was deliberate ?? [his wife] Coretta received the tape and played it first. But such accusations never seemed to touch her. She rose above all the petty attempts to damage their marriage by refusing to even entertain such thoughts."

I think everyone else has done enough to break down the rest of this nonsense.

Baby Jesus bless myspace.

I know females who like to bring up the adulterer part of MLK, but let’s face it. If you have a penis, your gonna fuck around.

Dave Chappelle quote is on point.

Hrmm, MLK day is something other than no school/work? LOL!


“The man I called daddy was black?” So she’s a white girl with a black adoptive father? Sounds like Issues Centralia.

I’m Dr Robinson, fuck being critical of people’s titles in the past thirty years when university presidents are actively LYING about their credentials.

I’m personally of the opinion that if you’re not having lots of sex, you’re probably not a good leader. Fuck the Puritans and fuck NOT getting blow-jobs from interns. I’ve gotten blow-jobs from several interns. In fact, I recommend it. :tup:

Fuck criticizing leaders for taking a stand. Fuck caring about plagiarizing people for a good cause and fucking stomp on Bush lying to you about a bad cause. I’m sure Osama has written a lot of great independent work. Fuck that guy and let’s celebrate great fucking causes and if we rallied around Michael Jackson King Jr and made some progress in this stupid world, that’s fucking awesome. :tup:

Fuck nihilism, fuck tearing idols down from pedestals, let’s fucking celebrate a world in which maybe we can all start off as equals and get to work on destroying the bad NOT the good. :party:

Thats Deep SON!

Hahahah, so I go into my user CP, and got rep from preppy complimenting my post. I’m like “what? what did I even post?” expecting it to be some quality post or something. rofl. :rofl:

Seriously. I believe it would be a good start.

Preppy’s maniac! lol! :tup:
