Did de Blasio actually say he wants to achieve income equality, not just reduced income inequality? If so, that is the most communist position I’ve heard from a major American elected politician. It would require 100% taxation of the rich, and redistribution to the poor and unemployed. Is that what people thought they were choosing when they elected him?

My guess is that he would be more open about his relationships with white women. Back then it was a negative, these days it would be viewed as a positive and probably get him lucrative contract for a reality show, “It’s Good To Be The King!”

As much as we would like to think it was the great Martin Luther King’s intellect and communication skills that precipitated the surge of civil rights progress, I don’t think so.

It was the governments fear of open, armed rebellion that got them off their fat asses.

WWKD? Oh, he would probably talk about how those European-Americans are still suppressing the African Americans and Mexican-Central American Americans and how the South-Asian-Americans and Middle-Eastern Americans are taking jobs away or charging too much at party stores while those East-Asian Americans are probably causing jobs to be shipped overseas while their children mess up the grading curves.

NOT! Content… character… color… skin.

He would tell the young black people that they are now being the racist ones.
He would say that your not getting arrested because your black, but because your walking around like thugs and gangsters.
He would show his disgust for the modern black males obsession with being the best and seeking materialism without anything to show for it.

Mr. King should read http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/01/20/us-davos-trust-idUSBREA0J09020140120 and let us know whether race plays a role in a huge confidence loss from Obama’s NSA and ACA. Is this part of his dream?

Let there be no doubt as to the depth of evil depravity in the soul of the American character which has blasphemed God, country, and all things sacred in pursuit of the all mighty dollar.
