I'm reminded by my parents how Martin Luther King Jr. was dismiss and despised as anti-white, Communist, socialist, anti-American, and an agitator "stirring up trouble" and disrupting the "harmony" between the races when dared to stand up against the segregationists and racism that pervaded the country during the Jim Crow era. J. Edgar Hoover even called MLK the most dangerous man in America and did everything he could, illegally and legally, to discredit MLK. Enter Barack Obama. he became president after 8 years of republican mismanagment of the country, 7 years of an unpopular war in Iraq, inherited a crumbling economy and a huge deficit. he came into the White House promising change and never said that that change was going to be painless and easy and had to endure and still endures false charges of being a racist, Communist, Socialist, a black radical with an agenda to pay back whites, anti-America and anti-Constitutional. 42 years later, some of the same people who derided King as a racial provoker along with some younger people from the next generation praise MLK and claim to honor his legacy by stressing and manipulating King's "content of character" quote as a way to cover their racist treatment of Obama and forget that MLK, like Obama, was subject to the same hate, mudslinging, and smearing for advocating racial justice and economic assistance and empowerment of the poor of all colors. The same people who engaged in such deplorable behavior against King are acting nearly identical to the Tea Bastards of today who use the same exact tactics against Obama.
