    1. That was when people were not paid enough. Today if he looked at the economy he would he would not want to bankrupt the banks and have socialism

  1. Besides being an outstanding orator, MLK was a good example of what he hoped his followers would be. He was polite at all times. He knew well the power of words and chose them carefully, a talent that each should develop for there is indeed power in words–to hurt or to heal, to build up or to tear down, to destroy or to restore. God help us.

    1. I will never forget standing on the balcony at the Lorraine Motel after walking through the Civil Rights Museum in Memphis. Knowing what happened and being right there I felt such sorrow. I vowed to work against white supremacism and look forward to a better nation.

    2. @N W And the Capitol Hill rioters also.
      We should ALL strive to be like him in that respect. Lord, help us all.

  2. I love MLK but I love Malcolm X even more & he wasn’t afraid to call them out and call them as he saw us & them.

    1. You must not have heard MLK speaking before his death. He abandoned the non-violent method of movement. I played and audio of an MLK speech for a Muslim friend of mine and he thought it was Farrakhan. That is why they assassinated MLK. He had more power (followers) than Malcolm and he was no longer telling the people to be non-violent. And he was not only talking to blacks people he was talking to the working man attacking the economy. His boycotts were successful. All Malcolm did was give militant speeches and debates and he was feuding with the NOI. Malcolm didn’t garner the people like MLK because he was recruiting for the NOI and black people weren’t willing to change religions like that. Even Malcolm left the NOI after he made his pilgrimage to Mecca. Check out MLK’s later speeches. It was about manhood and being black and proud and he was talking about signing contracts in blood.

    2. Both of them would have condemned the current Democratic party for being the godless-Marxist hacks that they are.

    1. We the people abolished the evil of slavery in our Constitution. It is well past time to abolish the evil of the electoral college as well, as we continue ever onward toward true democracy.

  3. MLK was a great man with a great message.
    Black History though? its a joke, get real.
    An overwhelming majority of the black community
    Are unable to name 5 famous and influential black people who were born over 300 years ago.

    1. Bro. 300 years ago black people were slaves and killed for being any kind of influence beyond a good working product america wasnt even a country at that point?

  4. John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Hallelujah!
    Repent and turn from sin! Follow God’s sacred 10 Commandments! Time is running out!

    1. Jesus left us with 2 Commandments. Love the Lord, Love thy Neighbor. Jesus’s very birth FULFILLED THE OLD TESTAMENT LAW, which humanity is incapable of living by. He said, NO MAN KNOWS THE DAY OR HOUR. Love not fear, is how He wants us to live. PERIOD.

    2. @BeachBum God, the Father of Jesus, left us with 10 Commandments, which are THE LAW. 1 John 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. May God bless you friend!!!

  5. “america is doomed, not just because of African Americans, but because by 2040 america will be minority white european” -Joe Biden

    1. You can tell exactly how he feels about other races. Not even by how he acts, buy by how blatantly he says racist crap like that. It’s embarrising

  6. There they go with that nonviolent crap again. The people that you are up against have a AR-15 assault rifles. And every night they go to bed they pray that we just keep going right along with the Martin Luther King theme.

  7. Dr King always reminded me of Moses when he knew that he would not reach the promised land with the rest of his people. Children of today, white, brown and black, have little understanding of how frightening those times were. Even in large cities, the only effective remedy to institutional racism was to use small town gossip against the participants.

  8. Yt: “This will make you think twice about getting that vaccine”

    “How to thrive in a stressed out world 15 min”

    “Disclosure: 75 years fake peace”

  9. Texas still celebrates Confederacy Heroes Day. Texas Republicans still fighting Civil War on side of slavery.

  10. Yt: “This will make you think twice about getting that vaccine,”

    “How to thrive in a stressed out world 15 min,”

    “Disclosure: 75 years fake peace,”

  11. King called for you to judge yourselves by the quality of character.
    Soooo…why do the Democrats continue to separate people into racial, orientation and gender based groups?
    If you first make it a point to self identity and separate yourself as someone not equal you can never achieve equality.
