I learned something about Doctor King today...

...thanks to his niece.

Doctor King was Pro-Life and totally opposed to abortion. If more people knew that, Congress would probably do away with his national holiday.

He also felt that some of the biggest dangers facing the Black community were promiscuity, illegitimate births and single parent (a.k.a, mom) households. My God, what would he say if he were alive now? What is it now - Two out of three births in the Black community are illegitimate?

King never adopted the "victim mentality" that is now the hallmark of Black leaders such as Sharpton and Jackson. I believe that the community would do better to follow the teachings of King (regarding basic morals, though God knows he had his failings), Roy Innis (regarding individual responsibility and self-reliance), Marcus Garvey (regarding the Black Community as an entity unto itself and looking out for itself) and even Malcolm X (regarding self-destructive behavior), than listen to Sharpton, Jackson, and even King's own children.
