MLK Day: America’s Affirmative Action Holiday

, , , ,

Vince Everett Ellison demonstrates that not all African Americans buy into the MLK myth.

After finding evidence that the “man of God” and “moral conscience of our nation,” the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., participated in the rape of a parishioner, engaged in numerous sex orgies, received cash payments from known communists, and admitted that he was a Marxist, King biographer and Pulitzer Prize-winning author David Garrow wrote of King, “There is no question that a profoundly painful reckoning and reconsideration inescapably awaits.”

Black Democrats and White liberals rail about the gains derived from the Civil Rights Movement. I ask, “What gains?” If murder, poverty, and mass incarceration are gains, you may have a point. In an attempt to make him untouchable, liberals have protected King’s counterfeit legacy by sealing his FBI files until 2027. Nevertheless, his reckoning is here.

But that reckoning shouldn’t occur exclusively because of King’s immoral behavior. It shouldn’t happen because the “Good Reverend’s” best friend, Ralph Abernathy, in his book And the Walls Came Tumbling Down, described King beating a woman and sleeping with two others at the Lorrain Motel the night before his death. Or because Arthur Schlesinger recorded Jackie Kennedy saying he was “terrible, phony, and tricky.” Or that Black Major League Baseball player Don Newcombe reported to the FBI that King was a “drunk” and had an illegitimate child by a woman married to a sterile Los Angeles dentist. Or because King allowed the dirty world of politics to turn the Black church into a puppet of the atheist and racist Democrat party.

No. This reckoning should happen because Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King and the Civil Rights Movement have failed Black people. They managed only to elect many Black Americans into office, with most of them belonging to the same evil Democrat party that had necessitated the Civil Rights Movement by enslaving, raping, castrating, and oppressing Black Americans for over one hundred and fifty years.

After fifty years of following King’s failed ideology, consider these results. On June 4, 2020, the Washington Post reported “no decrease in Black and White citizens’ wealth gap since 1968.” The Brookings Institution reported that in 1965, only 24% of Black children were born out of wedlock. In 2020, it was 69.4 (approximately a 300% increase). Between 2019 and 2020, Blacks made up 11% of the population but 50% of all murders. In May 2019, Penn State and UCLA reported that school segregation is getting worse.

This is King’s legacy. Why are we celebrating it?

In explaining how to recognize a false prophet, Jesus said, “A tree is known by the fruit it bears.” He said you cannot get bad fruit from a good tree. The fruits of the Black community, almost unanimously, are rotten to the core.

What good has come from Martin Luther King’s movement for Black America? The American Black community is at the bottom of nearly every socio-economic statistic. The Black family is weaker. The Black church is more apostate. The Black economy is nonexistent. Black government is corrupt. Black education is terrible. Are we celebrating failure, or was this their intention?

Whatever else Rev MLK gave encouragement to “normal” African Americans to merge into the American population and to prosper. I acknowledge the gift/burden of genetics. The founding slave population consisted of two very different sub groups. The smaller sub-group are probably the descendants of “normal” people who were snatched up in inter-tribal raids, were “POWs” or were successful outcasts that were sold to Europeans in exchange for European fabrics, steel implements ( later firearms), and rum. The vast majority non-productive “defectives” who were a burden to their tribes. The Ashanti and the Yoruba had “empires” that accepted human tribute from the subjugated tribes, that were then sold into slavery. The details are obscure but it seems certain that the subjugated tribes didn’t send their best and brightest. The Igbo had a fairly sophisticated “debtor/welfare system” in which an individual who had fallen on hard times “lost their freedom” and were assigned to a caretaker family/klan. If that arrangement was successful, the “slave” could live a good life. Those who failed to cooperate with their caretakers and were a persistent burden were s3nt to the Europeans.

A modern author, Adaobi Tricia Nwaubani, published a biographic piece in “The New Yorker” in 2018 (My Great-grand father the slave trader) (https://www.newyorker.com/culture/personal-history/my-great-grandfather-the-nigerian-slave-trader) which describes his activity getting rid of the defectives. Ms. Nwaubani is a coherent, and effective 7author, so it is very obvious that her work was chopped and edited by an incompetent
Progressive Editor to remove the description
of the “defectives” who were sent on the
Middle Passage.

Most of those who ended up in the slave trade were “culls”. I have no idea how the genetics and “assortative mating” may have worked, but the “troubles” of the African American community should come as no surprise in light of that history of “adverse selection”. The smaller group of “normals” do fairly well in society. The majority not so well. “Like Father, Like Son” through the generations.

Interesting article. I’d never heard of Ellison before. It should stir things up, if anyone takes the time to read it. I think he’s on to something: anyone who gets as much reverent lip-service from the American Left as MLK has to have had something to offer them that they value, which is certainly not Christian faith.
