Martin Luther King Day 2014

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobop republicans;

I don’t normally like to toot my own horn but this doesn’t happen to me too often.  When I became a ‘virtual’ volunteer for http://www.cheerfulgivers.org , I didn’t think I would make an impact on anyone.  I’m sure they have lots of volunteers to be impactful.  But this past January 18th, 2014 Cheerful Givers highlighted a comment of mine to a post about MLK Day.  Just thought I share that with you all.

This is the actual post with my comment:

This is Cheerful Givers highlighting it:

I hope your MLK Day was impactful and productive.

Until next time…

Genuine Revolution

A genuine revolutionof values means in the final analysis that our loyalties must become ecumenical rather than sectional.  Every nation must now develop an overriding loyalty to mankind as a whole in order to preserve the best in their individual societies.”– Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dr. Martin L. King Documents Online

Quote from King Center site : “There are nearly a million documents associated with the life of Martin Luther King Jr. These pages will present a more dynamic view than is often seen of Dr. King’s life and times. The documents reveal the scholar, the father, and the pastor. Through these papers we see the United States of America at one of its most vulnerable, most honest and perhaps most human moments in history. There are letters bearing the official marks of royalty and the equally regal compositions of children. You will see speeches, telegrams, scribbled notes, patient admonitions and urgent pleas. This spotlight shows you a glimpse of the remarkable history within this collection.”

You should check it out. Black America should do this for everyone; famous or not!

United We Stand Our Ground

Are we united? Divided we fall!

Some people can’t handle the truth; even when they ask for it.

If you want the blue pill of blissful ignorance, then stop reading and go back where you linked from. If you can swallow the bitter red pill of the “facts“, then…

There’s always something that comes along to ruin American race relations. (O.J. Simpson, Trayvon Martin, etc.) The Civil Rights movement has taken a wrong turn sometime after the death of Dr. Martin L. King Jr.

Dr. King wanted a color-blind society, (i.e. judge people by the content of their character). [zobop commentary: White people may not judge Black persons by their character but Blacks can and should judge ‘everyone’ by the content of their character. Very important.]

Today’s Black leaders are divisive and bitter; they race-bait, blame, and tell lies and other ‘error of omission’, thereby betraying Dr. King’s vision of a Civil Rights movement. Isn’t it time we the people get back on track to Dr. Kings vision of the future?
