    That is a toughie.

    Without question, Wilson was far more of a racist than the two combined, and that is saying something.

    No, he wanted to redistribute the wealth from the rich, to the poor as well.

    Always found it interesting that liberals prefer to call him Dr. Martin Luther King instead of Reverend. Speaks volumes.

    No, it doesn't...the very reason there was a gross imbalance of power in favor of whites and gained off the backs of minorities is not because of benevolent character of those whites -- it was obscene and gross injustice..

    What measures the content of a man's character is his willingness to correct what was wrong, even if it means him giving up some of those obscene and unjust benefits he had to privilege of benefiting from.


    but I don't expect conservatives to understand this...I expect conservatives to believe they won a 100 yard dash fair and square, even tho they started at the 70 yrd line.

    So tell me now, are you an avid Malcolm X supporter that ascribes to his every word or are you just cherry picking something out of context for political reasons?

    Choose one.

    So the FBI working with the members of the DOJ seeking to at first block Trump from the Presidency and then seeking to destroy his Presidency doesn't mean jack shit?

    :lol:

    Same old playbook that they used against MLK. Communist for King. Russia for Trump. Same old same old.

    As James Baldwin said (another brilliant mind that conservatives don't like to talk about) --- he isn't concerned about if a politician loves him -- he is only concerned about what policies that politician puts in place..

    So if LBJ did in fact hated blacks, called them N-words 12 times a day --- the Voting Rights and Civil Rights act were still hugely beneficial pieces of legislation that the "racist" guy signed into law.

    If you are trying to compare Trump to King, you are far too delusional to understand the point
