Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream is far from fruition. Dr. King spoke of 100 years of past and what his vision for our future could be. We are nearly 50 years since his historical “Million Man March”. How far have civil rights come for Dr. King’s Negros?
Negros are classified as African Americans, now. Our national unemployment rate for African Americans is 14% while our national average hovers around 8%. The Center for Disease Control reports approximately 4,000 abortions are performed daily in the United States, 1452 of them are upon African American women. African Americans make up 12% of the population but 35% of abortions performed. Ever wonder way Planned Parenthood Clinics are overwhelmingly located in minority neighborhoods? Public high schools in America have a 45% African American dropout rate. Graduating African Americans are functionally illiterate with an 11% proficiency in math and 13% in reading. Funny, Democratic Progressive controlled education system views the breakdown in our educational system due to a lack of funding.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “Nothing is so much needed as a secure family life for a people to pull themselves out of poverty.”
The out-of-wedlock birth rate among African Americans today is 73%. Our welfare state works against families struggling to stand on their own. Food stamps, section-8 housing, Medicaid, day care and Temporary Assistance to Needy Families are penalized by marriage. An unwed mother receives far more welfare. African American homeowners were financially devastated by the progressive equality push of the subprime mortgage crash in 2008. African Americans lost 53% of their net worth. Democratic President Jimmy Carter made into law the Community Reinvest Act that mushroomed into far reaching implementation of government control in the banking sector.
Democrats governed the 10 most dangerous cities in America in 2011. Detroit, the nation’s most dangerous city for the fourth consecutive year, the second most dangerous city was St. Louis. Third was Oakland. Fourth was Memphis. Fifth was Birmingham. Sixth was Atlanta, dominated by Democrats since 1923. Seventh was Baltimore. Eighth was Stockton. Ninth was Cleveland and tenth was Buffalo. 1,184 people died as a result of homicide, another 2,306 were raped, and 26,286 were victims of robbery. A majority of these victims were black and Hispanic, as were the perpetrators. All ten cities were controlled politically by Democrats. After New York City elected Republican Rudolph Giuliani as mayor in 1994, Giuliani transformed New York City into the safest big city in America by adopting a zero-tolerance approach to crime-fighting.
Dr. King measured a man by the content of his character, not the color of his skin. Dr. King lived his life by the principles of God and the civil rights of the Constitution of the United States of America. Our nation’s civil rights are being destroyed by Democratic Progressive policies of social justice, equality, and tolerance. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican and Democrats have perverted Dr. King’s principles into something unrecognizable. They do not want “We the people” to remember the true history of the civil rights movement of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. dream.
