    Margaret Kimberley, senior editor and commentator with BlackAgendaReport.com, joined us this week to honor Dr. King and discuss the many attempts to construct a fraudulent lineage between King, the movement to which he belonged and Barack Obama.* As Obama and his handlers attempt yet again to pose the president as an heir to King’s legacy many of the important differences between the two continue to be submerged beneath that powerfully false construct. Kimberley helped greatly in making clear those differences as she described the the suppressed realities of both men and the politics they represent.

    Is there an available transcript?

    To me, I do not see why folk--the Black Agenda Report--are using Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy as that. I find Martin Luther King Jr. sufficiently well-spoken in this quotation:

    "Negros threw eggs at me, when I spoke in New York."

    I understand that our ancestors legacy is being abused. But I don't understand how folk are pretending that they are/were down with our ancestor. Don't let him be abused, but don't pretend that you're his Brother.

    I mean--come on--in thirty-years we'll have articles abusing another Black man and exalting Obama. What's the point?

    Dr. King was against war, poverty, inequality, and corporate oligarchy.

    How better to divide and rule, than by the way of misinformation, i. e., whatever we can't or won't pass on, our enemies mass (madnesss) media (machines) will, to advance their dreams and schemes, too...
