Four things I'll bet you didn't know about Martin Luther King:
1. His name wasn't Martin Luther. It was Michael! It was decided Martin Luther had a more prominent ring to it, so he went by that. He never
legally changed his name. To this day, he lived and died as Michael King.
2. While working on his dissertation for his doctoral degree at Boston University, he heavily plagiarized from another author who had done research on
a subject similar to King's. An academic committee later found that over half of King's work was plagiarized, yet would not revoke his doctorate
degree. King was dead by this time, and the committee ruled that revoking the title would serve no purpose. It was also discovered that King's
famous I HAVE A DREAM speech was also not his own. He stole it from a sermon by Archibald Carey, a popular black preacher in the 1950's.
3. King was under FBI surveillance for several years (until he died) due to his ties with communist organizations throughout the country. King
accepted money from the organizations to fund his movements. In return, King had to appoint communist leaders to run certain districts of his SCLC
(Southern Christian Leadership Conference), who then could project their communist ideas to larger audiences. A federal judge in the 60's ruled that
the FBI files on King links to communism to remain top-secret until 2027. Senator Jesse Helms appealed to the Supreme Court in 1983 to release the
files, so the bill in the Senate to create the Martin Luther King Federal Holiday could be abolished. He was denied.
4. One of King's closest friends, Rev. Ralph Abernathy, wrote a book in 1989 in which he talked about King's obsession with white prostitutes. King
would often use church donations to have drunken sex parties, where he would hire two to three white prostitutes, occasionally beating them brutally.
The FBI agents who monitored King have also reported this. King was married with four children.
Martin Luther King Day is a day on which this country comes to a screeching halt so we can have parades and memorials to honor this man, a man that
most of the world views as a saint for his role in the civil rights movement:
- No other public holiday in the United Stateshonors a single individual; Of all the great leaders in our Nation's history-none of them have their
- All of our great war heroes share Memorial Day;
- All of our great presidents share President's Day.
Yet king -- a man who was a phony, a cheater, a traitor, and a sexual degenerate gets a day of his own.
I have a big problem with that. I'm not trying to take anything away from African Americans, but I am simply trying to point out that:
- The vast majority of people are sorely mistaken about Michael King; and
- Reverse discrimination is blatantly obvious everywhere you look today.
Make up your own minds, but I feel like I belong to one of the more abused ethnic groups in this country today.
Can I do anything about it? Absolutely not. If I dare speak out I'll get labeled a racist, harassed by the media, subsequently lose my job, and
never be able to show my face in public again.
But what I can do is post this message and ask that you copy this and send out as an e-mail to as many people you know in hopes that when you're
watching the evening news on Martin Luther King Day, and you observe our politicians falling all over themselves to be filmed in a black church,
you'll keep these above facts in mind Martin Luther King.
