(contd)Those politicians who possess the conscience to admit it know
perfectly well that their liberal policies have actually brought grief and
destruction to those they intended to help. Yet, continually hungry for power
and reelection, they will never address the problems their party caused; but
instead think up new ways to be viewed as more caring and more willing to give
(i.e., read redistribute wealth). Dr. King would be mortified today
to see that the concept of hard work helping minorities raise themselves out of
poverty has been displaced by this type of vote-buying. For I believe that Dr.
King knew what many know: Teach a man to fish and he eats for a
lifetime, give him fish each day and he never learns a thing (nor does his
No Christy, what Liberals today (and in the past 5 decades in Chicago, where Im
from) have actually done is guarantee they remain in office by making themselves
provider of all needs, especially for poor Black families.In the
name of helping, the government stepped in to act as both Provider and Father to
poor Black families, and in so doing has created far larger problems than the
poverty they sought to alleviate. Today, instead of simply battling poverty,
inner-city Black families deal with generational welfare and generational
joblessness, sky-rocketing out-of-wedlock births to their teenage girls, gang
violence brought on by their sons (and daughters) having no Father in the home
to act as a moral compass for his own children; basically, they deal with the
complete breakdown of the nuclear family.
No assumptions made. Life is not fair and not all will be winners of the
contest, except in the feel-good, unreal, liberal world.
An uninteresting, typical, regressive conservative comment from 'dogchow',
assuming we're all born with an equal shot in life. Open your eyes.
Interesting comment by Christy.You can get a leg up by hard work and earn
more money (which is how most people do it), then you want to "level the
playing field" on them and take it away. I don't see any incentive
there, except for the "poor minorities " to stay that way and wait for
the handouts.Typical class warfare liberal thinking.
AZRods - The word is perspective, not prospective."Towering
legend, flawed man?" At first glance, I though this was an article on
Joseph Smith, Jr. Both men are rightly revered.
No, Chris B. Liberals insist that we don't ignore, or leave behind poor
minorities just to fend. We work at trying to make a more even playing field,
where everyone can get a leg up through hard work. Not everyone is
born on 3rd base. MLK Jr. wanted to see justice for all God's
children, not just the rich ones.
I appreciate the prospective of seeing him as a man who had great passion for a
great cause.Reading about his inappropriate behavior "behind closed
doors" affected my respect for him over the years, but this article put
that into good prospective.People can make mistakes and still accomplish
King said he wanted people to judge NOT by the color of their skin.Today.....Liberals insist that racists are those people who refuse
to treat others by the color of their skin.King would be ashamed at
those who claim to support and follow him, all the while demanding that
minorities be treated by the color of their skin.
