Once again, the president will try to upstage the memory of Martin Luther King Jr., by showing up, spitting his divisive message, stirring the pot of racism and pretending to care about a people, he’s hell bent on destroying. Previously, he dishonored King by declaring his day, a day of service, which in no way, is a honor.
It’s ironic that this guy, used the message in King’s “I Have A Dream’ speech to elevate himself beyond the racial boundaries of the Black community and now, the ‘Dream’ is no longer a valid means by which to escape the poverty closely associated with community organizing.
According to Valerie Jarrett, the president will confuse economic prosperity with racial equality and the only way to achieve that goal is by government intervention. Welfare reform would have been a good way to go, but the president nullified that upon taking office. Education, other than public schools, would have been another way to insure economic prosperity in the Black community, but the president nullified the D.C. charter school’s dream.
Both of the above would have leveled the ‘playing field’ for the poor and created countless opportunities within the Black community, but organizing poverty was more beneficial to a mythical legacy.
The president, the one who graduated from Harvard without a transcript, has to know, his policies of social justice, cripples the country, and as such, misery, which loves company, have a nasty habit of trickling down. Whenever something has a trickle down scenario in place, it has to settle at the bottom of something. The Black community is at the bottom of that trickled down misery. They will be the ones most harmed by any adverse economic instability.
Ben Kinchlow, ‘religious leader, political commentator and star of ‘The 700 Club,’ shares this sentiment and issued an opinion on the president’s mostly, non anticipated speech to dishonor ‘the MLK’s March on Washington anniversary.’
Racial harmony in the country requires sincerity, not more of the same racial overtones from the government. There was time when racism in America was dead and buried. The country gave birth to prosperity, across the board and that was doing just time until the one, nobody was waiting for, resurrected racism’s skeleton and destroyed the 'American Dream,’ not just in the Black community, but the entire country.
