    Where Are You, Martin Luther King?

    A half-century after his death, Martin Luther King Jr. is as revered as ever. But have we been following his example, or merely paying lip service to his ideas? Jason Riley, Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, weighs in.

    Of course the Deviates only pay lip service to what he accomplished.

    There have been few American heroes in the last 75 years. Someone whose actions were to create a better life for us all. Martin Luther King Jr. is one of those heroes. Unlike the black leadership of today who pushes others to the front of the line and blames others for their own failures Dr. King put his own life on the line every day and made America better for us all. I sincerely think that Dr. King would be appalled at what is being preached in his name today.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    poor source

    While I am not a fan of Prager U, as it is a fake U to use a Trumpian analogy, I did listen. The trouble here is this man misses the reasons and there are many and they are complicated. But I will point out one that is dominant and so obvious today especially with white supremacy growing. Resentment and grievance, ok two words, yep the progress blacks made, instead of being the positives, created a backlash that brought us Trump and white supremacy in spades. For those who want to know lots below.

    'White Supremacist Ideas Have Historical Roots In U.S. Christianity'

    "Why didn't white Christians show up?" he recalled wondering. To his dismay, Cross learned that many of the people in the white mob were regular churchgoers. In the years that followed, he made it part of his ministry to educate his fellow Christians about the attack and prompt them to reflect on its meaning."
