Would Martin Luther King Be a Republican Today?

Recently I was doing some research on black history and I ran across an article relating to politics. It stated in the article that Dr Martin Luther King was a Republican. So I decided to go further into Black Republicans. I was astonished to learn that when back after reconstruction the Republican Party was similar in ideas as the Democratic Party is today.

Later on, they more or less became increasingly more conservative in their views. I have often wondered since I found this out if Dr King was alive today, knowing what the Republican Party stands for, would he still be a Republican? Makes you think. Then I went online and researched the current black republican movement in this country and I must say I was mortified by some of the things I read.

The way the Republican Party is treating people in this country right now is deplorable at best and to see these Black people literally eating up everything they say is literally repulsive. People like Michelle Malkin and Michael Steele evidently were bused in because back in the day, the federal government told them to integrate.

Both of them are out of reality and haven’t got a clue about the wants and needs of the Black community, but that is to be expected. I have seen people like them all my life. They are typical of some Black folks. They struggle all though their early lives and when they attain a little success they get uppity and think they white and the first thing they do is forget their roots and where they come from and all the people who were pulling for them to get to where they are today.

It is truly a sad sight to see, and now they embrace the Republican Party. A party that is slowly being taken over back Rush Limbaugh and rural southern white men who haven’t got a clue about and could care less about this country’s needs. If that’s what you want and that is your vision of where this country needs to head then you are just as sick and diluted as they are.
