Martin Luther King’s “I Have A Dream” Speech Commemoration

The late great Dr. Martin Luther King gave us his “I Have a Dream” speech August 28, 1963, from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Today (August 28, 2010), a rally titled, “Reclaim The Dream” led by Rev. Al Sharpton at Dunbar High School, Washington, DC focusing on keeping Dr. King’s dream alive. A few blocks away a rally titled, “Restoring Honor” led by Fox News talk show host Glenn Beck at the Lincoln Memorial focusing on faith, hope, charity, and honor according to Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King who spoke at Beck’s rally. However, the part about hope and charity is far fetched; we all know Beck and his followers have no regard and patience for hope and charity for the underprivileged.

I’ll get straight to the point. For Glenn Beck and his ‘Restoring Honor’ followers to put on a rally with the majority in the crowd who are ‘Gay Bashers’ and ‘Muslim Haters’ is despicable. These people had to be told to leave your hatred racist signs at home, but by all means bring your philosophy of White domination with you. I know some will say, “How can you say White domination when a person like Alveda King is a prominent member of their cause.” We might not want to admit it, but we all have at least one person in our family that we shun. As a matter of fact, let’s talk about the people of color who attended Glenn Beck’s rally.

When you hear Glenn Beck say things on his talk show like, “President Obama has a deep hatred for White people; I just think he’s a racist.” It’s amazing to me how people like Rev. C.L. Jackson, Alveda King, and Lloyd Marcus can associate themselves with a person like Glenn Beck; however, everybody already know Lloyd Marcus is an outright ‘UNCLE TOM’ anyway. It shouldn’t be held against anyone for being Republican or Democrat, it’s their prerogative. It’s just a dam shame that some Blacks don’t possess the ability to think on their own, and not be brainwashed. Don’t get it twisted, some Black Republicans have the ability to utilize their common sense. One in particular who comes to mind is Lenny McAllister, a young man who will let anybody know that he’s a Republican, but he will also let anybody know that he’s his own man. One of the biggest lies ever told was when Glenn Beck said, he didn’t know August 28th was the anniversary of Dr. King’s ‘I Have a Dream’ speech at the Lincoln Memorial Mall. This was nothing but a blatant racist attempt by Glenn Beck to let Blacks know he could care less than a dam about Dr. King’s anniversary speech.

We have Black Clergy members in our community who is brainwashed by people like Glenn Beck when it comes to the Gay community. These people, most of whom, have been discriminated against themselves, allow a book (the Bible) introduced to them by the very same people who discriminated against their fore-fathers to brainwash them to discriminate against others; how ironic. This is how dumb our Black Clergy members are, they shower people like Sarah Palin with praise, while Sarah Palin is praising Dr. Laura Schlessinger for using the word NIGGER in a degrading manner towards Blacks repeatedly on nation-wide radio to a Black woman seeking advice on race relations.

Make no mistake about it, if we don’t learn to live together as Brothers and Sisters; we will perish together as fools.
