    This is a letter written from J. Edgar Hoover to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. before his assassination. My purpose for doing this is not to pause the Liberation of our People, but to further educate our People on the past as we strive toward Liberation. This is completely for Educational purposes.

    Disgusting! Yet this is the mindset that is ingrained in the psyche of most whites.

    "King, like all frauds your end is approaching."

    "King you are done."

    "You are finsihed."

    Are there any doubts the Federal Government of the United States assassinated King?

    And speaking of "frauds" wasn't Hoover a closet homosexual?

    That comment about "all of us Negroes" got me to looking around the net (I copied the thread title into advanced search/exact phrase at google) last night. I never did come to a definitive conclusion, although I did spot that there may have been a question of his actual "origins". (Birth certificate not filed until he was in his forties, but his siblings' were filed promptly.) Also saw comments on the question of his "bias". Could be something to it, I suppose: at his death, his long time "partner" inherited all his stuff ... Not really sure that it was all that much "in the closet" ...

    Check out wikipedia.

    I kinda got that same impression about the assassination, but through reading, I found out that this letter was written 34 days before the Nobel Prize awards. <srug> On the other hand, I also saw lots of evidence of his hatred for Dr. King.

    Them fools been broken ever since they first showed up. And now they are imploding! ... And bound and determined to take everybody/thing with them! <sigh>
