In Solidarity

One of the greatest speeches ever delivered; so powerful that the FBI labeled him the “Most Dangerous Negro in America.”

“Personally, I believe in the light of King’s powerful, demagogic speech” that “he stands head and shoulders over all other Negro leaders put together when it comes to influencing great masses,” Sullivan said. “We must mark him now, if we have not done so before, as the most dangerous Negro of the future in this Nation from the standpoint of communism, the Negro and national security.”

 

1963 was only the beginning.  We are still beginning.

And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead.

  1. The sad part is this speech isn’t what got him assassinated or his civil rights activities, it was him speaking out against the Vietnam War. Guess that’s what happens when you deviate from Massa’s instructions.

    Back in the GOOD OLE DAYS of slavery (a time that alot of people seem to wish was back in effect these days) when the overseers and masters finally allowed black people to follow religion in their OWN house of worship the minister that was selected was given STRICT instructions to follow which were certain passages in the Bible, and there were 3 specific messages they were to repeat in sermons over and over ad nauseum:

    –Always turn the other cheek.

    –Love your enemy.

    aaaaaaaaaand (this is the most IMPORTANT detail)………..

    –OBEY YOUR MASTER.

    they would have someone outside listening to the sermons just to make sure they were doing as they were told or else………….

    If you go to any black church in this country you’ll STILL HEAR remnants of that message flying out of the preacherman’s lips. Willie Lynchism is STILL in effect even to this day. And people wonder why black folks should “get over it” when it comes to slavery (funny, I don’t hear that when it comes to the Jews and the Holocaust or the tragic 9/11 incidents) without even looking at what the results of that ugly incident cre8ted. Then again the people screaming that stupid shit more than likely wern’t ancestors of slaves but the ancestors of the BENEFACTORS of slavery and racism. Inherited racism/white privilege has granted them the right to not give a fuck apparently.
