    You can't trust people who use those types of words.(pinko, commie,etc.) People of one particular idealogy throw those words around to get a reaction when they have no facts to back them up. It is like saying all republicans are millionares.

    So what I amhearing here is that he did a lot of good, for some people whom he did not know. And he lived a life not too much different from some of us right here on this forum.

    Is that correct?


    And Jesse jackson .... I dont even have a thing to discuss about him.
    Thre's only one word to fit jackson; lost.

    According to his (MLK) life, he was lost as well.

    Question I noticed

    R-12 has not commented on the MLK-Jesse Jackson link. What happened? Has one of your heroes been deflated??

    I'd also have to go with yes, yes, and maybe. I also agree with R12 that there's absolutely no comparison between MLK & Jesse Jackson.

    It's also true about the affairs King had. J. Edgar Hoover kept a file on him and had him surveiled and photographed in his liasons with women. Blackmail was a favorite tactic of Hoover's. In the case of MLK, Hoover was also preparing bedtime stories for LBJ to read.

    I think Martin Luther King would be the first to say he was not perfect. Had he lived he may have been outed as a womanizer and publicly denounced.....but he did not live, so he has been martered.

    In this respect I think this is a good thing because so much of what Martin Luther King taught was just basic good for society as a whole. We must not tear down the good of social leaders because of personal indescretions.

    On the same note Jesse Jackson used to do some really good teaching before he became blacker than normal and lost sight of all humanity equally.

    its the idea that is immortalized not the man, the man was a catalyst in the big mix of things. HE did die, and we are still alive. He probably knew he had a high chance of being shot and took the bullet anyway, whatever he was he had courage. I wonder what we would have done?

    I think most of us would have compromised as he did.

    While other people were preaching hate. Dr. King was preaching love. I respect him for that. He was human. I can relate to that and aspire to become half the man he was.
