DEMOCRAT RACISM - THE SUNDAY COMMENTARY

During the past week the Nation remembered the day forty years ago in 1968 when Doctor Martin Luther King Jr. fell victim in Memphis, Tennessee to an assassins bullet. Dr. King was the voice in the Civil Rights movement of the late fifties and the nineteen sixties and was killed for his stand against racism and injustice to ALL races, colors and creeds.

Dr. King though a black man never spoke for or used violent means to end race injustice and not only spoke for Black Americans but for all Americans who suffered racial injustice in this country. His dream as echoed in the famous speech delivered on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in 1963 was that, "we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, "Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!"

Throughout the commemoration of that tragic day in 1968 when Dr. King's life was ended far to early and before his work was completed many stated that King would be disappointed with the progress that has taken place toward race relations since 1968. They mentioned that he would consider that the injustice of race has made little or no improvement since the early days of the Civil Rights movement.

It is with statements like those made that I have to find disagreement with those who made them. While there is still some racial injustice in this Nation and improvement can still be found, we have come along way since the days of Jim Crow, back seats on buses, separate drinking fountains and restrooms and people of a different race being killed on the streets while law enforcement turned a blind eye.

The dream of Dr. King while not fully accomplished is much more a reality today than it was at the time of his death forty years ago. People of color are finding balance economically and in the job market. Opportunities are in abundance and available to those who will as with any American seek those opportunities. Yes there are still some divisions and racists who will not give up their idiotic hatred sparked simply by the color of a person's skin. But we are far cry from the days that Dr. King experienced.

Yet to listen to some liberals and many leaders in the Democrat Party racism has not only NOT improved but the days of Jim Crow are still with us and people of color have almost no opportunity in this country. The rank and file Democrats are not the problem in this continuing discussion and division of race but leaders in the party like both candidates for President and those who associate themselves with the Civil Rights movement of the sixties like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.

These are the race baiters of today. Whenever the opportunity presents itself they use what has become known as , "the race card, " as a means of blaming an injustice or I should say many times a perceived injustice or as a means of attacking an individual or group in order to make headlines or just stir up trouble which will go in their favor because everyone is afraid of being stamped as a racist.

Democrats have used the race card as a means of holding Black Americans as a hole as a voting block in this country and use legislation and the stirring up of race issues as a form of almost political slavery to keep them dependant on government and Democrats. This is a practice that I believe Dr. King would not have used or approved of in his fight for racial equality.

Additionally any Black who distances themselves from this form of oppression and actually rises above it is labeled an, "Uncle Tom." Two examples of this are Justice Clarence Thomas and Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice. Both have risen to high office in this land and have associated themselves with Conservative politics rather than liberal politics and they have been condemned by liberals who accuse them of betraying their, "race." So just WHO is the racist in this type of situation, those who have risen above or those who accuse them of being, "Uncle Toms ?"

Historically, while Democrats claim to be the party who stands for minorities in actuality Republicans have used legislation to correct injustices. Lincoln, a Republican was the author of the Emancipation Proclamation. Though not perfect and lacking in scope it was the foundation of ending slavery in this country. When Civil Rights legislation finally made it to the Halls of Congress in the sixties Lyndon Johnson had to cross the isle and rally Republicans to pass the legislation because most Democrats refused to back the bill.

Dr. Kings birthday finally became a holiday under the leadership of Republican President Ronald Reagan. And President George Bush was the first President to have Black Americans in high cabinet position with Collin Powell as Secretary of State and Condoleeza Rice as National Security Advisor and now Secretary of State. Rice also served as National Security with President Reagan.

Many Democrats have been strong advocates of racial balance in this country but when it comes to race accusations and using race as a means of stirring trouble or keeping it in the press to spark harsh feelings, many prominent Democrats are always at the front of race baiting. Even in this Presidential election year it is Democrats and NOT Republicans who are making the fact that Barack Obama is a black man an issue rather that just accepting that he is a MAN running for the office of President.

Yes there is still anger concerning race and there is still injustice that must and demands to be corrected and equalized between minorities. But the constant barrage of playing the race card and stirring up either real or perceived race issues by liberals is not addressing the problem but making it worse as it promotes anger and hatred rather that peace and an attitude of working together as Dr. King advocated.

Race will be an issues in this Nation until we as Americans can finally look at another individual only as a fellow American and not by the color of his/her skin whether that skin color be black, white, brown or yellow. It will always be an issue as long as racists who claim to be fighting against the injustice of race actually use it as platform to stir up anger and hatred.

When using the race card as a means of causing trouble ends as a political practice with anyone especially liberals, then and only then will we find this nation in the final fulfillment of Dr. Kings dream , " This will be the day when all of God's children will be able to sing with a new meaning, "My country, 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrim's pride, from every mountainside, let freedom ring."

Great post on race. I concur. It is sad that the libs are trying to wreck what King worked so hard to accomplish and die for. I am sure if he saw Jesse Jackson and the Sharpton types now he would be ashamed.

What bothers me to this day is the Kennedy's tapped Dr. King's phones, and then was carried on by Johnson after Kennedy was killed, and Robert Kennedy signed off on it as Attorney General, Hoover with his hatred of Dr. King, etc..

The Democrat party was all over this man.

And the black people still flock to these unbelievable Morons.

Now, with Sharpton and Jackson the racial pot will keep churning as long as they keep stirring!

Wow, Ken, this was a terrific post. And 100% true. I get so sick of people playing the race card. They play up racial tension and are definitely part of the problem.

I also wanted to tell you that your comment on my blog was awesome. I think you captured Conservatism perfectly.

The Democrats have little choice but to play the race card -- if they let up on their con of blacks and the blacks realized they've been played for suckers by the Democrats for so long, they'd lose their largest voting bloc to the Republicans.

That is, the party of Lincoln, as opposed to the party of the KKK that calls itself the "Democrats".

Racism is ugly. And goes hand in hand with collectivism.

These leftists steal money from all of us, then dangle the dollar over our heads and tell us to fight with each other over who gets it...keep blacks fighting with whites, men with women, gays with straights etc. Keep us fighting over the dollar that they stole from us to begin with! Here's a novel idea: IT'S OUR DAMN MONEY STOP TAKING IT!

Leftists say things like "hard working Americans can't afford their kids college..." etc. Well of course they can't afford it, you're making them work 4+ months a year for free!

It doesn't take a lot of ingenuity to figure out the left wing scam.
