"I have a dream that my four little children will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."~ MLK Jr. This famous quote is as powerful now as it was when it was issued. This is where Americans of the left & right believe we are now or should be, where character counts -- and is expected. “There is a class of race problem solvers whom make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public….some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances because they do not want to lose their jobs…they don’t want the patient to get well.” Booker T. Washington. Unfortunately, BTW was right then and it continues. Race in this country has now become an industry unto itself, even though the American people think it is about time that we are a post-racial society. Furthering racism however is necessary for the race industry (Rev. Jesse Jackson, Rev Jeremiah Wright, Rev Al Sharpton, the National of Islam, the New Black Panther Party, etc) to survive. Which means if racism were ever to be eliminated, the industry and the people whose livelihood depends on it, would no longer be needed. And so it is kept alive, long after it's purpose has faded into history. Therefore, the racism industry is now a bigger problem than the racism issue itself. People on both sides, left and right, agree that racism and discrimination are unacceptable in America. To say or think that only one political group (the right) is to blame is inaccurate, irresponsible and/or ignorant. To say so purposely and knowingly is reprehensible. Unfortunately, political ideologies have also attached themselves to this industry in an attempt to secure votes. The Left ( Marxist, radical and lunatic liberals who control the President and the Democrat party) today, and their media counterparts, lead this reprehensible effort with their daily barrage of viscous and inaccurate racist attacks on the right. The Left has been brilliantly successful with this strategy. This success is extremely ironic when you realize that the legacy of racism in this country belongs to the Democrat party. • Democrats legacy of Racism. • How Republicans Thwarted Democrat racism. • Why only Democrats and liberals should feel white guilt? Below you will see both sides clearly. Let's begin right now to talk honestly about race, about character and about racial progress in this country for a change. Opportunity exists for everyone, equally, and has for the last 60 years. That is at least two generations. In that context, read the debate below on, what should no longer be, the issue of race.

Dr. King Would Support the Young Deplorables

from The Wall Street Journal,

Intimidating one’s political opponents only because one disagrees with the outcome of the last election is a disgrace and a serious offense to the democratic process.

Of the most culturally deplorable boxes one can check in progressive America in 2019, the boys of Covington Catholic High School have most of them: white, male, Christian, attendees at the annual March for Life in Washington, and wearers of MAGA hats. What’s not to dislike?

Regarding your editorial “The High School Deplorables” (Jan. 23): Having lived until 1989 under a communist regime (Soviet-controlled Poland), I am appalled by the argument that the Covington Catholic High School kids share the blame for the showdown with the Black Hebrew Israelites protesters simply by wearing their MAGA hats. It is beyond the pale that in a country built on the principles of free speech and personal liberty, political activists (and worse, journalists) dare to tell their fellow Americans that they are not allowed to openly support the president they voted for and to express their political views. Intimidating one’s political opponents only because one disagrees with the outcome of the last election is a disgrace and a serious offense to the democratic process. I’ve never had a MAGA hat, but I am going to find one. I owe it to the Covington High kids and to the right to freedom of speech in our country. Pawel Kalinski Buffalo, N.Y. How ironic that on Martin Luther King Jr. Day—a day honoring a man revered for his dedication to peace—a young man is vilified for employing (as viewed from the clips available on politically diverse news sites) one of the tactics Dr. King espoused: passive resistance.
