Professor Craven's remarks above are disturbing but predictable, given his
displayed aptitude and tendency to play the ethical police. Using the stock and
trade of every professional bourgeois nationalist, the individual Dr. king
is torn from history and the historically specific stage of the African
American Peoples Movement in which he appears. Professor Craven King is devoid of
class and national striving and does not articulate a historical voice behind
the Cotton Curtain, against voice of the Minister Malcolm X, who could not
but express a more industrial Northern voice and the historic fighting sector
of the old Negro Bourgeoisie of this period.
King is condemned for having extra martial sex - from a prostitute at that.
So What! Bill Clinton had sex . . . depending on how one defines sex,
outside his marriage and this act became more relevant to the bourgeoisie and their
petty bourgeoisie nationalist lackey's than the fact that Clinton passed
legislation that hurt more poor people in America than all the Republican
Presidents of the last 50 put together.
Dr. King was not the man the bourgeoisie and their minion thought. King was
subject and sensitive the actual shifting class relations and insurgency of
the black masses. King's life spans the most important changes to take place in
the African American Peoples Movement during the last century and
understanding his shifting role in this process is important. Id Dr. King had chose to
screw - have sex, with every woman at the Mustang Ranch, so what. As long as
individuals are reduced to other ethical consideration, at the expense of
class stance and understanding the historical moment, their is no way for the
workers to learn from their experience.
1965 was the critical years. The Watts Rebellion and then Detroit and Newark
- 1967, was not lost on King.
"King was a narcissist, a showman, a megalomaniac, a hypocrite full of
Really. Dr. King was an Uncle Tom - a historical character, during an era
when class separation within the black masses was not possible so long as all
classes were housed together under the iron laws of Jim Crow. I did not
personally support Kings tactics but I am post Detroit 1967, living under
conditions of intense industrial concentration and the capacity to fight back as a
King lead an organization, that played a part in forever changing America .
. . more than the bourgeois nationalist Professor Craven can ever do. How did
King sex behavior compromise the real African American peoples Movement? How
. . .other than in Craven's own twisted mind.
"MLK Day makes me sick . . ."
Really. Where were you at the time Professor Craven . . . still taking part
in the killing - murder of innocent people on behave of the imperialist?
Look, Professor Craven . . . many workers in America get a day off for this
holiday, many with pay and no holiday with pay is bad. MLK Day had to be
fought for and apparently this means nothing to the ethical police.
Dr. King plays a huge role in the historical process that is the phenomenon
of the Black Leader in America. Dr. King was murdered because he turned out no
to be the man the intelligence agencies for the bourgeoisie thought. Dr.
King was murdered because of the person he was and his political stance.
What a tragic article. But then again, when ones sets themselves up as the
ethical police and the residential professional bourgeois nationalist
ideologue, class phenomenon, evolution of the national factor and real history losses
But then again this is the same man who never repudiated implying I was a
If King says "I'm just another nigger..." , so what . . . and actually it
looks like that is how he was treated.
What a tragic article.
Every biography I ever read of J. Edgar Hoover notes that King, who met
Hoover twice, was very compliant, toned down and "polite" in Hoover's presence.
Why? Because King, knowing how much was on the line, knowing how much would be
lost if his own stature was compromised, knowing how much members of the
Civil Rights movement trusted him and his leadership, knowing FBI was watching
his every move, nonethless allowed himself to be compromised and blackmailed by
Hoover and LBJ with his escapades with hookers in various motel rooms. On
one tape, a woman says to him "Dr. King, you shouldn't be here" to which King
replies, "It's okay, tonight I'm just another nigger..."
King was a narcissist, a showman, a megalomaniac, a hypocrite full of
himself. His message of "non-violence" was exactly what "Mister Charlie" wanted and
needed and still embraces as they do all sorts of violence daily to African
Americans. And his "Negro Bourgeois family" still treats his name as what it
was--a commodity--for which they still charge huge sums just to use his name
and likeness--increasingly on commercials of Fortune
500 who do all sorts of ugly violence daily all over the world.
King would not have made a pimple on Malcolm X's (who is never mentioned)
ass. MLK Day makes me sick and when you see all the reactionaries who embrace it
and JKing, it tells you exactly what and whom King served all along--in
addition to his excessive ego and self-created personna.
