Good thing old MLK didn't call on the Klan to help him....

I find it funny how people think MLK should not be spoken of except in reverent terms....he was just a man,a man like any other with failings and a somewhat checkered past.

Of course white guilt means a lot of people cannot being themselves to even read of such things.

lol, define "work".

If you mean that it keeps the government in power, well, I guess it's working.

If you mean "it raises the standard of living for the most people", it's failing miserably.

And let's not forget all the "special economic zones" like Hong Kong...ya know, places where communism is not actually practiced? Places that are the driving force behind China's "communist" economy?

Ok, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and say that you're just kidding.

In August 1963, the Justice Department received a report from the
FBI which contained allogations extremely unforavable to Dr. King.

What's next......a holiday for Carl Marx?
Let's not forget Malcolm X was also a Communist, he met with Castro in 1961.

LOL, it is like the 1950s again.

I hear Bob Dylan in the back of my head saying, "I thought he was a communist".

Ignorance here is astounding. Orwell was not a communist, he was a socialist. Orwell fought in the Spanish Civil War against communism. He wrote an entire book on it called Homage to Catalonia. Orwell knew enough of the differences between Socialism and Communism that he risked his life fighting. He was seen as a Trotsky character. Is it too much to ask that you people know who Trotsky is?
