Because propaganda works, especially the poorer you are. Answer lies in the welfare state

King was a liberal. He would have been called a communist, traitor, socialist, etc by today's conservatives just as he was called that by conservatives of the past.

In the short answer YES. And Jackie RObinson was as well.

And most blacks began voting Democrat because during Nixon vs. Kennedy, Nixon ignored the requests of the NAACP while Kennedy adhered to them. Prior to that, blacks pretty much were always Republican with exception being when most blacks voted for FDR.

His family is Republican, and King wasn't a Communist or Socialist as you claim he was. The liberal democrat Kennedy's had him spied upon also, they are the ones who have you thinking King was a Communist.

Blacks vote Democratic because the Dems are always supporting entitlement programs for those in need without regard for cost to taxpayers.

Can you even read correctly? Where did I call King a communist?

For sure. The left would call him a sell out and Uncle Tom for calling for a color blind society.

Which party signed the civil rights acts into law and then which party opposed those laws?
