Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King - American Hero

As we celebrate MLK Day every year, perhaps the most important quote of Dr. Martin Luther King is that people should be judged by the "content of their character and not the color of their skin".  Somehow this concept has been completely lost in today's woke ideology.  In fact, wokesters want to judge people by the color of their skin and not the content of their character.  Everything today seems to be about skin color.  Critical Race Theory being pushed by Socialist Fascists is Marxist, racist, revisionist history that tells young children that they are the victims of systemic racism that can never be overcome.  Really!

These wokesters are out to divide our country along racial fault lines everything Dr. King was trying to stop.   It is hard to imagine if Dr. King's message would be accepted today by the radical left. Ironically, it is Conservatives that most revere Dr. King as an American Hero.   Dr.  King is a clear example of how one man or woman can make a difference and change our country and the world.  As someone who lived through the turbulent times of the 60's and the Civil Rights movement, we are all better for it.  However, given the turmoil we see today with BLM rioting, looting and burning down cities with little consequence, it is a though people of color have no rights in our country that were hard earned by prior generations. 

Instead, the radical left pushes victimization instead of recognizing all the progress that has been made in the last 30 or more years.   We did after all elect our first Black President and there are thousands of elected officials at all levels of government who are people of color and all sexual orientations.  Those that have succeeded are within the system and did it the old fashioned way.  They got great educations and worked hard to achieve success.  It is the epitome of Dr. King's dream.  The problem is that some in the radical left believe that their ticket to power is to perpetuate poverty.  

The radical left refuses to recognize that children born of our wedlock is not a good thing regardless of race. More often than not these children are born into poverty.  And because the radical left is lock step in line with the teacher unions, they do not support School Choice to get these kids out of failing public schools.   I wonder what Dr. King would say today about the state of our nation and the Black community.  I suspect Dr. King would be thrilled with the progress that has been made.  Dr. King might even be a Republican today because the Socialist Fascist (AKA Democrat) Party is so far to the left that they are completely out of step with most Americans of all colors.
