Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction…the chain reaction of evil — hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars — must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation.
-Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

 

Hating Hatred Doesn’t Work

 

On April 20th, 2013, my family and I decided to protest a Neo Nazi/Ku Klux Klan rally at the Georgia Capital in Atlanta, Georgia.  The protest changed me deeply, shaping in me a new way of thinking.  This post will focus on race, the protest, and my newfound solution to racism. 

 

Racism Defined

Racism, since the beginning of its conception, has always been a tool utilized by the ruling elites to keep the poor and working class Black and white people separated.  Theoretically, there is no reason why a poor Black person or a poor White person should vote or organize differently since both desire and require the same necessities: employment, education, shelter, food, etc.  The elites know this and understand that there is power in numbers.  To thwart unity, the elites employ their two political parties, the Republicans and the Democrats, to keep the poor and working class Black and White people apart for their benefit.  Bob Marley explained it perfectly in his 1979 song Ambush in the Night:

See them (Political Parties) fighting for power
But they know not the hour
So they bribing with their guns, spare-parts and money,
Trying to belittle our
Integrity now.
They say what we know
Is just what they teach us;
And we’re so ignorant
‘Cause every time they can reach us
Through political strategy
They keep us hungry
And when you wanna get some food
Your brother got to be your enemy.

Marley describes political parties fighting for power, using bribes to belittle people’s integrity.  Think of these bribes as universal healthcare, scholarships, background checks for guns, or increased social security spending, things politicians promise yet seldom deliver.   Marley also notes that political parties teach people through political strategies, mainstream media indoctrination basically, leading people to become physically and economically hungry…with their brother, the poor and working class Republican or Democrat, falsely appearing to be in the way of their “food”, which is jobs, security, schools, etc.

Republicans, with their continued use of the “Southern Strategy”, pimp poor and working class Whites with “I may be poor, but at least I aint a nigger” type of rhetoric, promoting strong views on militarism, capitalism, crime prevention, love of a White God, and anti-immigration.  These type of people drive pick up trucks and preach self-reliance with a “take no mess” attitude.

The Democrats on the other end, pimp mostly Black voters, insisting to them that they are “good white folk”, patting them on the head, feeding them with government handouts.  The Democrats teach Blacks that the Republicans are all racist hicks that think they are lazy, ignorant, and prone to violence.  If a Black decides to go Republican, these same “good White folk” Democrats who pat the Blacks on the head, stroking their kinky locks, turns into God, casting the Black Republican out of the “Garden of Eden”, calling THEM the racist.  The irony…

At this, the elites smoke cigars with the Republican and Democrat party leaders and play golf together while their constituents grow more and more resentful towards each other.  Just like in Afghanistan and Iraq, the elites rejoice while the poor and working class fight with a misconstrued feeling of patriotism. 

“Conscious” people, like politicians, also perpetrate racism.  Here are two theories of racism and how they are not accurate.

1.     Black people can’t be racist because they have no power.

2.     Racism is something exerted to others and not self.

First off, anyone who says Black people have no power is most likely a racist. Tell Malcolm X, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Huey P. Newton, Fred Hampton, Cornel West, Nelson Mandela, Angela Davis, or Mumia Abu Jamal Black people have no power.  How can the creators of modern civilization have no power?  Black people DO have power, tremendous amounts of it, some just don’t know what to do with it.  Instead of taking their power to college campuses to organize, some take it to White owned football teams to organize…to tackle people.  Instead of taking their power to protest against police brutality, some take it to White owned recording booths to promote Black on Black brutality.  Instead of taking their power to stand outside a state capital for the release of a political prisoner, some take it to stand outside a White owned Footlocker for the re-re-re-re-re-rereleased pair of 180$ basketball shoes that they wont even play basketball in.  Come on man, come on…  Black people do have power, some just don’t collectively aim it in the right direction for true positive change. 

Secondly, self-hatred in my opinion is a form of racism.  Perming one’s hair, whitening one’s skin, killing one’s brother…all this is a form of racism because it entails hating one’s skin and Black characteristics, seeing a brother as an enemy.  If a White person hates a Black person he is racist.  If a Black person hates a Black person he is racist.  We have to start judging ourselves with the same rubric we employ to judge others.  A White man can’t be racist simply because he didn’t vote for Obama yet a Black man is not racist for killing five Black men and injuring three in a shootout.  How can we call the Ku Klux Klan racist if our own brothers are carrying out their dirty deeds for them?  Racism is racism no matter who perpetrates it.  With that being said, lets talk about my family outing to the Ku Klux Klan/Neo Nazi rally.

 

Protest

Butterflies were turning flips in my stomach as my family and I approached the capital.  I was not afraid of the Ku Klux Klan or the Nazis because I see racists every day, but to see them out in the open with their views, passionate about their hatred and not ashamed of it was something different..something intimate..something more real.  When I turned the corner, walking past Georgia State Troopers with cocked and ready M-16’s, I found myself face to face with rage and hatred, anger and pride.. grungy looking white men in White robes and militant looking White men in Black military suits, pants tucked into their shiny boots.  Holding my son close, he asked, “Daddy, who are those men?”  I simply replied, “People who don’t want Black people and White people to live together…the same people who hated Dr. King and wants segregation.”  My son nodded in my arms and buried his head into my chest.  The racists were on the steps of the capital, waving flags and holding banners, their apparent leader speaking from a PA system.  The leader was drowned out by screaming from his supporters and noise made by the protesters.  The protesters ranged from young tough looking Black men to old White hipsters.  There were some men wearing V for Vendetta masks as well as a large Jewish presence.  After a while, the leader ended his speech and a long period of taunting began.  The racists spit across the barricade, protesters flipping the middle finger, shouts of “Cracker ill kill you” from the protester side and “You lucky the police are here boy” from the racist side.  Throughout all the pandemonium, the police looked as if they were against the protester side, keeping their back towards the racists, the gun facing us.  In the midst of all the commotion, a protester, a young woman, was grabbed and dragged through the street by the police, apparently for having a sign with explicit words written on it.  I guess freedom of speech is defined as verbal speech, not written?  With protesters playing bongos and snare drums and racists continuing to hurl insults, the atmosphere was similar to that of a playground tussle, all talk and no fights.  After a stand still, the racists decided to end the speeches and head back to their place of gathering.  The protesters stood there in a confused daze, not sure to follow them or continue protesting where they were.  After the racists entered a parking deck where they regrouped, a large group of protesters circled the building and stood on the corner.  The playground fight atmosphere continued, racists screaming down, protesters screaming up, cops screaming at protesters, racists screaming down, protesters screaming up, cops screaming at protesters, so on and so on and so on…  In the end, I looked from protester to racist, racist to protester, and again from protester to racist; but already it was impossible to say which was which*. The battle was a stalemate, a tie between who said the most insults. The crowd started to disperse and people went home. 

* Yes, I borrowed that line from Orwell’s book Animal Farm.

Solution

Police agents assassinated Malcolm X after he worshiped with White Muslims and started to believe in Black/White unity.  Dr. King was assassinated after he began to wean from civil rights to focus more on antiwar/economic rights work, something not simply a Black and White issue but also a Green.  The elites, as I wrote earlier, drive a wedge between the have and the have nots based on money and use race as its scapegoat.  The solution to racism IS NOT advocating a race war.  That is the most ignorant, suicidal thing a “conscious” person can do.  Advocating a poor and working class war would be extremely successful.  I’m not saying a guerilla war in the streets, but a war of public and corporate boycotts, military defections, strikes, peaceful protests, rallies, marches, teach ins, sit ins, mass arrests, occupations, etc, etc…   The real war is No Green Verses Green, Not Black Verses White.  The solution to racism is simply unity.  I never fully understood the meaning of non-violent protest until I witnessed a potentially violent one.  Screaming “F*ck you White trash” isn’t bringing anyone to the table of brotherhood.  Spitting at a protester isn’t getting at the core of why one fundamentally disagrees with one’s thought pattern.  Unity will take a tremendous amount of work because America’s race history is mostly negative.   We as conscious people must understand that at the core belief of racism is classism.  We must come together not as man-made races but as one government made class…the poor and working class.  I will end this blog with a quote from the great Malcolm X.  

“I believe there will ultimately be a clash between the oppressed and those who do the oppressing. I believe that there will be a clash between those who want freedom, justice, and equality for everyone, and those who want to continue the systems of exploitation…but I don’t think that it will be based upon the color of the skin, as Elijah Muhammad had taught it”.

A house that is divided cannot stand…

Beware of false prophets which come to you in sheep’s clothing, inwardly they are ravening wolves.

-Mathew 7:15

Hitler Using The Torah

President Obama using Dr. Martin Luther King’s Bible on inauguration day is both a travesty & a disgrace to the Civil Rights movement & the cause of freedom in the world.  Its comparable to Israel using the Koran on their election day or Adolf Hitler using the Torah at his reading in ceremony…an oppressor using the spiritual book of the oppressed as his “shining light of direction” is just sickening.

Any sane person can tell you President Obama is not a proponent of nonviolence & peace, but of violence & destruction.  Obama is not for income equality, but for wealth concentration.  Be honest, the man’s middle names are crony capitalism & drone.  While sitting in a jail cell in Birmingham, Alabama, Dr. King wrote, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”. That quote can still be put in use today.

Injustice in Afghanistan is a threat to justice everywhere.

Injustice in Pakistan is a threat to justice everywhere.

Injustice in Yemen is a threat to justice everywhere.

Injustice in Somalia is a threat to justice everywhere.

Injustice in Libya is a threat to justice everywhere.

Injustice in Guantanamo Bay is a threat to justice everywhere.

Fools tend to think events in the past are just that…events in the past, but wise people say, “history always repeats itself”.  Dr. King spoke about Vietnam forty-five years ago but, as with most prolific activists, writers, & orators, his words can still be applied to the current world scene. The following quotes are from Dr. King’s speech “Beyond Vietnam”.  These quotes explain the degradation of society because of war.  While reading, substitute the word Vietnam for the Middle East, Communist for Muslim, & Napalm/Bombs for Drones.

“Beyond Vietnam”

A time comes when silence is betrayal.  That time has come for us in relation to Vietnam.

“Why are you speaking about the war, Dr. King? Why are you joining the voices of dissent?” “Peace & civil rights don’t mix,” they say. “Aren’t you hurting the cause of your people?” they ask. When I hear them, though I often understand the source of their concern, I am nevertheless greatly saddened, for such questions mean that the inquirers have not really known me, my commitment, or my calling. Indeed, their questions suggest that they do not know the world in which they live.

My third reason moves to an even deeper level of awareness, for it grows out of my experience in the ghettos of the North over the last three years, especially the last three summers. As I have walked among the desperate, rejected, & angry young men, I have told them that Molotov cocktails & rifles would not solve their problems. I have tried to offer them my deepest compassion while maintaining my conviction that social change comes most meaningfully through nonviolent action. But they asked, & rightly so, “What about Vietnam?” They asked if our own nation wasn’t using massive doses of violence to solve its problems, to bring about the changes it wanted. Their questions hit home, & I knew that I could never again raise my voice against the violence of the oppressed in the ghettos without having first spoken clearly to the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today: my own government. For the sake of those boys, for the sake of this government, for the sake of the hundreds of thousands trembling under our violence, I cannot be silent.

Now it should be incandescently clear that no one who has any concern for the integrity & life of America today can ignore the present war. If America’s soul becomes totally poisoned, part of the autopsy must read “Vietnam.”

I would yet have to live with the meaning of my commitment to the ministry of Jesus Christ. To me, the relationship of this ministry to the making of peace is so obvious that I sometimes marvel at those who ask me why I am speaking against the war. Could it be that they do not know that the Good News was meant for all men — for communist & capitalist, for their children & ours, for black & for white, for revolutionary & conservative? Have they forgotten that my ministry is in obedience to the one who loved his enemies so fully that he died for them? What then can I say to the Vietcong or to Castro or to Mao as a faithful minister of this one? Can I threaten them with death or must I not share with them my life?

Finally, as I try to explain for you & for myself the road that leads from Montgomery to this place, I would have offered all that was most valid if I simply said that I must be true to my conviction that I share with all men the calling to be a son of the living God. Beyond the calling of race or nation or creed is this vocation of sonship & brotherhood. Because I believe that the Father is deeply concerned, especially for His suffering & helpless & outcast children, I come tonight to speak for them. This I believe to be the privilege & the burden of all of us who deem ourselves bound by allegiances & loyalties which are broader & deeper than nationalism & which go beyond our nation’s self-defined goals & positions. We are called to speak for the weak, for the voiceless, for the victims of our nation, for those it calls “enemy,” for no document from human hands can make these humans any less our brothers.

And as I ponder the madness of Vietnam & search within myself for ways to understand & respond in compassion, my mind goes constantly to the people of that peninsula. I speak now not of the soldiers of each side, not of the ideologies of the Liberation Front, not of the junta in Saigon, but simply of the people who have been living under the curse of war for almost three continuous decades now. I think of them, too, because it is clear to me that there will be no meaningful solution there until some attempt is made to know them & hear their broken cries.

They must see Americans as strange liberators.

They know they must move on or be destroyed by our bombs.

So they go, primarily women & children & the aged. They watch as we poison their water, as we kill a million acres of their crops. They must weep as the bulldozers roar through their areas preparing to destroy the precious trees. They wander into the hospitals with at least twenty casualties from American firepower for one Vietcong-inflicted injury. So far we may have killed a million of them, mostly children. They wander into the towns & see thousands of the children, homeless, without clothes, running in packs on the streets like animals. They see the children degraded by our soldiers as they beg for food. They see the children selling their sisters to our soldiers, soliciting for their mothers.

What do the peasants think as we ally ourselves with the landlords & as we refuse to put any action into our many words concerning land reform? What do they think as we test out our latest weapons on them, just as the Germans tested out new medicine & new tortures in the concentration camps of Europe? Where are the roots of the independent Vietnam we claim to be building? Is it among these voiceless ones?

We have destroyed their two most cherished institutions: the family & the village. We have destroyed their land & their crops. We have cooperated in the crushing of the nation’s only noncommunist revolutionary political force, the unified Buddhist Church. We have supported the enemies of the peasants of Saigon. We have corrupted their women & children & killed their men.

Now there is little left to build on, save bitterness. Soon the only solid physical foundations remaining will be found at our military bases & in the concrete of the concentration camps we call “fortified hamlets.” The peasants may well wonder if we plan to build our new Vietnam on such grounds as these. Could we blame them for such thoughts? We must speak for them & raise the questions they cannot raise. These, too, are our brothers.

How can they trust us when now we charge them with violence after the murderous reign of Diem & charge them with violence while we pour every new weapon of death into their land? Surely we must understand their feelings, even if we do not condone their actions. Surely we must see that the men we supported pressed them to their violence. Surely we must see that our own computerized plans of destruction simply dwarf their greatest acts.

Here is the true meaning & value of compassion & nonviolence, when it helps us to see the enemy’s point of view, to hear his questions, to know his assessment of ourselves. For from his view we may indeed see the basic weaknesses of our own condition, & if we are mature, we may learn & grow & profit from the wisdom of the brothers who are called the opposition.

He (Ho Chi Mein) knows the bombing & shelling & mining we are doing are part of traditional pre-invasion strategy. Perhaps only his sense of humor & of irony can save him when he hears the most powerful nation of the world speaking of aggression as it drops thousands of bombs on a poor, weak nation more than eight hundred, or rather, eight thousand miles away from its shores

This is the message of the great Buddhist leaders of Vietnam. Recently one of them wrote these words, & I quote:

Each day the war goes on the hatred increases in the hearts of the Vietnamese & in the hearts of those of humanitarian instinct. The Americans are forcing even their friends into becoming their enemies. It is curious that the Americans, who calculate so carefully on the possibilities of military victory, do not realize that in the process they are incurring deep psychological & political defeat. The image of America will never again be the image of revolution, freedom, & democracy, but the image of violence & militarism.

If we continue, there will be no doubt in my mind & in the mind of the world that we have no honorable intentions in Vietnam. If we do not stop our war against the people of Vietnam immediately, the world will be left with no other alternative than to see this as some horrible, clumsy, & deadly game we have decided to play. The world now demands a maturity of America that we may not be able to achieve. It demands that we admit that we have been wrong from the beginning of our adventure in Vietnam, that we have been detrimental to the life of the Vietnamese people. The situation is one in which we must be ready to turn sharply from our present ways. In order to atone for our sins & errors in Vietnam, we should take the initiative in bringing a halt to this tragic war.

I would like to suggest five concrete things that our government should do immediately to begin the long & difficult process of extricating ourselves from this nightmarish conflict:

  • Number one: End all bombing in North & South Vietnam.
  • Number two: Declare a unilateral cease-fire in the hope that such action will create the atmosphere for negotiation.
  • Three: Take immediate steps to prevent other battlegrounds in Southeast Asia by curtailing our military buildup in Thailand & our interference in Laos.
  • Four: Realistically accept the fact that the National Liberation Front has substantial support in South Vietnam & must thereby play a role in any meaningful negotiations & any future Vietnam government.
  • Five: Set a date that we will remove all foreign troops from Vietnam in accordance with the 1954 Geneva Agreement.

Every man of humane convictions must decide on the protest that best suits his convictions, but we must all protest.

The war in Vietnam is but a symptom of a far deeper malady within the American spirit, & if we ignore this sobering reality [applause], & if we ignore this sobering reality, we will find ourselves organizing “clergy & laymen concerned” committees for the next generation. They will be concerned about Guatemala & Peru. They will be concerned about Thailand & Cambodia. They will be concerned about Mozambique & South Africa. We will be marching for these & a dozen other names & attending rallies without end unless there is a significant & profound change in American life & policy.

In 1957 a sensitive American official overseas said that it seemed to him that our nation was on the wrong side of a world revolution. During the past ten years we have seen emerge a pattern of suppression which has now justified the presence of U.S. military advisors in Venezuela. This need to maintain social stability for our investments accounts for the counterrevolutionary action of American forces in Guatemala. It tells why American helicopters are being used against guerrillas in Cambodia & why American napalm & Green Beret forces have already been active against rebels in Peru.

Five years ago he (Kennedy) said, “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.” [applause] Increasingly, by choice or by accident, this is the role our nation has taken, the role of those who make peaceful revolution impossible by refusing to give up the privileges & the pleasures that come from the immense profits of overseas investments

We must rapidly begin the shift from a thing-oriented society to a person-oriented society. When machines & computers, profit motives & property rights, are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, extreme materialism, & militarism are incapable of being conquered.

A true revolution of values will lay hand on the world order & say of war, “This way of settling differences is not just.” This business of burning human beings with napalm, of filling our nation’s homes with orphans & widows, of injecting poisonous drugs of hate into the veins of peoples normally humane, of sending men home from dark & bloody battlefields physically handicapped & psychologically deranged, cannot be reconciled with wisdom, justice, & love

These are days, which demand wise restraint & calm reasonableness. We must not engage in a negative anticommunism, but rather in a positive thrust for democracy [applause], realizing that our greatest defense against communism is to take offensive action in behalf of justice. We must with positive action seek to remove those conditions of poverty, insecurity, & injustice, which are the fertile soil in which the seed of communism grows & develops.

These are revolutionary times. All over the globe men are revolting against old systems of exploitation & oppression, & out of the wounds of a frail world, new systems of justice & equality are being born. The shirtless & barefoot people of the land are rising up as never before. The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light. We in the West must support these revolutions.

It is a sad fact that because of comfort, complacency, a morbid fear of communism, & our proneness to adjust to injustice, the Western nations that initiated so much of the revolutionary spirit of the modern world have now become the arch antirevolutionaries.

We can no longer afford to worship the god of hate or bow before the altar of retaliation. The oceans of history are made turbulent by the ever-rising tides of hate. History is cluttered with the wreckage of nations & individuals that pursued this self-defeating path of hate.

We still have a choice today: nonviolent coexistence or violent coannihilation.

It’s right to say that Dr. King would not have voted for Obama.  Dr. King is speaking the way a “Liberal” used to.  I can’t see in any instance where Dr. King would agree with indefinite detention for Muslims as well as Americans, torture, or predator drone strikes that primarily kill women and children.  Remember though, people continually try to paint Dr. King & Obama as “one in the same” though…

Obama is not a proponent of the poor, but a puppet for the wealthy elite.  Dr. King was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee while showing support to the African American sanitation workers strike.  Dr. King started the Poor People’s Campaign in hopes to end the oldest form of legal discrimination, one in which continually bars people from the hope of obtaining the American dream; Poverty.   Unemployment under Obama has been around 7%…for White Americans.  For Black Americans, double that.  That’s right, unemployment for Black Americans has been hovering around 14%.  On September 6th, 2012, Obama issued his party nomination for president acceptance speech at Bank of America Stadium.  Bank of America Stadium.  Oh the Irony.  I’m not saying Obama has the power to uplift the poor or bail people out of poverty, but he surely did it for a select few Detroit businesses. The following quotes are from Dr. King’s speech “Beyond Vietnam”.  These quotes explain how wars are ultimately wars on the poor.  Substitute Vietnam for War on Terror.

“Beyond Vietnam”

There is at the outset a very obvious & almost facile connection between the war in Vietnam & the struggle I & others have been waging in America. A few years ago there was a shining moment in that struggle. It seemed as if there was a real promise of hope for the poor, both black & white, through the poverty program. There were experiments, hopes, new beginnings. Then came the buildup in Vietnam, & I watched this program broken & eviscerated as if it were some idle political plaything of a society gone mad on war. & I knew that America would never invest the necessary funds or energies in rehabilitation of its poor so long as adventures like Vietnam continued to draw men & skills & money like some demonic, destructive suction tube. So I was increasingly compelled to see the war as an enemy of the poor & to attack it as such.

Perhaps a more tragic recognition of reality took place when it became clear to me that the war was doing far more than devastating the hopes of the poor at home. It was sending their sons & their brothers & their husbands to fight & to die in extraordinarily high proportions relative to the rest of the population. We were taking the black young men who had been crippled by our society & sending them eight thousand miles away to guarantee liberties in Southeast Asia which they had not found in southwest Georgia & East Harlem. So we have been repeatedly faced with the cruel irony of watching Negro & white boys on TV screens as they kill & die together for a nation that has been unable to seat them together in the same schools. So we watch them in brutal solidarity burning the huts of a poor village, but we realize that they would hardly live on the same block in Chicago. I could not be silent in the face of such cruel manipulation of the poor.

I am as deeply concerned about our own troops there as anything else. For it occurs to me that what we are submitting them to in Vietnam is not simply the brutalizing process that goes on in any war where armies face each other & seek to destroy. We are adding cynicism to the process of death, for they must know after a short period there that none of the things we claim to be fighting for are really involved. Before long they must know that their government has sent them into a struggle among Vietnamese, & the more sophisticated surely realize that we are on the side of the wealthy, & the secure, while we create a hell for the poor

I speak for the poor of America who are paying the double price of smashed hopes at home, & dealt death & corruption in Vietnam.

A true revolution of values will soon look uneasily on the glaring contrast of poverty & wealth. With righteous indignation, it will look across the seas & see individual capitalists of the West investing huge sums of money in Asia, Africa, & South America, only to take the profits out with no concern for the social betterment of the countries, & say, “This is not just.” It will look at our alliance with the landed gentry of South America & say, “This is not just.” The Western arrogance of feeling that it has everything to teach others & nothing to learn from them is not just.

A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.

For every dollar spent in the Middle East, no dollar is being spent on education, poverty reduction, jobs, & climate change research.  Dr. King is 100% right on the double war poor people fight.  As Mumia Abu Jamal said, “the War on Terror” is a war on us all”.  Dr. King would not have been satisfied with Obama’s stance on the poor.  Wars are started by the rich but financed & fought by the poor.

Do you finally see that despite the spin, Dr. King & Obama only share each others color but not a fragment of each others character?  I think if Dr. King were still alive, he would boycott Obama using his Bible because of the bloodstains he would leave from innocent Muslim children.  People…Black people & Liberals in particular, its time to cast away the veil of ignorance & accept the fact that the “knight in shining brown skin” is more about nope & shame than he is hope & change.  “Until justice rolls down like water & righteousness like a mighty stream”, Obama is ultimately moving civil rights & world peace backward, not forward.  I will end this article with a quote from the famed academic & author Carter G. Woodson. “When you control a man’s thinking, you do not have to worry about his actions”.  With continual pictures of Obama & Dr. King together, famous people propagating a politician for a civil rights activist, the media has brainwashed the people to believe that they are both one & the same.  No matter what Obama does, people will feel it is for the betterment of society…the uplifting of humanity.  So when Obama signs law after law, starts conflict after conflict, doing the complete opposite of what Dr. King would advise, he doesn’t have to worry about the people’s actions of distrust, for he controls their thinking…

Don’t trust a White Neoconservative wolf in Brown Liberal sheep clothing…
