Fifty years on, what would MLK say?

My brother attended the red carpet premiere of his wife’s first big screen acting role at a Baltimore movie theater. Forced to park blocks away in the hood, after the movie my brother asked a friend to drive him back to his car rather than risk walking.

My brother said Baltimore black youths are out-of-control and extremely aggressive. He said if George Zimmerman was on one street corner and black youths were on the other, he would choose to walk past Zimmerman: I’m not afraid of Zimmerman. I’m afraid of us!”

Our conversation came on the heels of the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr delivered his historic, remarkably inspiring, “I Have a Dream” speech.

As expected, the Race Industry is exploiting the 50 anniversary the same way they exploit Black History Month every year to further their false narrative that race relations in America have progressed very little since the 1950s, white America is eternally racist, and more entitlement programs, government freebies, and lowered standards are needed to give blacks a fair shot at the American dream.

I had a dream. MLK and I met for lunch. Though a bit star struck in the presence of an American icon, I brought the eager to know Dr. King up to date on black America’s progress since his tragic departure.

Black out-of-wedlock births are over 70 percent, three times the level of your day.

The new normal in the black community is “baby daddy” rather than husband and father.

Murder rates for blacks are up to 8,000 to 9,000 per year in America, 93 percent perpetrated by other blacks. Why are we killing each other? Some say it’s the white man’s fault.

Yes, Dr. King, your memory is correct. Black poverty was on the decline. But in 1965 Democrat president Lyndon Johnson launched his so-called War on Poverty which destroyed the black family by replacing fathers of black households with government, resulting in increasing black poverty ever since.

Did I tell you about the epidemic of black youths dropping out of school? Considering that high school is free, I do not know why blacks are not completing it. Black so-called advocates in the race industry say it’s white America’s fault. I agree with you sir, their accusation makes no sense to me either.

Dr. King, your mastery of the English language is somewhat frowned upon today. Some would accuse you of trying to be white. Using gangsta rapper terms such as “creepy ass cracka” and “nigga” is celebrated as down-for-the-struggle authentic blackness in America. No sir, I said, “gangsta” not “gangster.” Its a cultural thing.
