‘But By The Content Of Their Character’

From Mr. King’s August 28, 1963 “I Have A Dream” speech:

… I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

I have a dream today…

A thought for today. And tomorrow.

And the next four years.

(Of course the race-baiters now accuse people of taking this quote out of context.)

    Quote this to any obamabot and it doesn’t matter if they’re white, black, brown, green or purple and they will look at you with a blank look. You will hear crickets. Their mouths will hang open.
    They will look at you like you have three heads.

      What gets me is that the people they interview on the telly (white or black, it didn’t seem to matter) everybody seems to say, “I thought it was great! A black man as president!” I am somewhat annoyed by that. So far, the people that I know that voted for Obama have either said, “I voted for him because he is black! Yay!” or “I voted for him because he is the smartest man ever to run for President! Yay!”

      Neither his color nor his intelligence are a reflection of his character.

      One must first have character!

    • 1sttofight says:

      Character does not matter anymore. Remember Bill Clinton?

      Yea….the womanizing redneck with astro-turf in the back of his pickup.The place he shagged the Hag Hilda…… and the rest is “His- twa.”

    Not necessarily. Some would accuse you of being a racist. You know, for using the words of a black man to say that racism of any stripe or colour is bad.

    It really troubles me that I’m not allowed to condemn or object to a great many behaviours on the part of others because I’m a white, Christian male. Any visible minority, I’d be labeled a racist. A majority of the human race, women, and I’m sexist, chauvinistic, or whichever label is currently used to shut men up. And don’t get me started on the issue of religion unless you want me to talk (or type) for a long time.

    King had the right idea, and we can’t let his words be subverted by those that would twist his message into the exact opposite of what he wanted.

    The same folks who revere KIngs message also conveniently forget that he was a Republican. His memory has been turned into a cash cow for his children and an excuse to brainwash schoolchildren with liberal ideas. Not to mention giving the dems biggest supporters ,like afscme and the Nea a paid day off.We will be better off when this holiday is taken as seriously as Presidents day. With the economy the way it is I am sure we coild use another white sale.

    • VMAN says:

      I have often wondered why black people are democrats. George Wallace, Lester Maddox, Separate But equal, Jim Crow Laws were all democrats or democrat ideas.

    • Steve says:

      “Jim Crow Laws were all democrats or democrat ideas.”

      Absolutely right. Jim Crow laws, such as poll taxes, were all aimed at keeping blacks from voting for Republicans.

    • David says:

      You see the Democrats started rigging elections by keeping black people from voting and now the Democrats are rigging elections by getting black people’s votes counted twice . So you see, it all evens out in the end.

    • gradstudent says:

      Except it only evens out for Democrats

    • 1sttofight says:

      VMAN,
      You can thank LBJ’s Great Society program for turning blacks into democrats even though it destroyed the black family as a cohesive unit and spawned the “single mom”.

    • VMAN says:

      The democrats have learned their lessons well. Whether you believe the William Lynch letter was true or not it reads like it came right out of the Dems playbook and LBJs Great Society was when it was put into play. It was true blacks had gained civil rights so the dems had to devise a plan to keep them down on the plantation so to speak.

  4. caligirl9 says:

    My liberal friends go postal when I remind them that MLK was a Republican! They accuse me of lying!

    As I recall back in the early 1960s, the Dems didn’t exactly step up to the plate regarding civil rights. JFK was certainly *not* a leader when it came to dealing with civil unrest. Feel free to correct me, I was but a mere child back then!

  5. The Redneck says:

    In this election, Americans proved that neither matters very much anymore.

  6. Odie44 says:

    Black American Genocide Leaders have been stealing MLK jr’s. thunder before the autopsy was performed. Jesse Jackson is numero 1 – leading to Sharpton, Rev Wright, etc.

    These scumbags have made careers, mass amounts of money and political influence through the bastardization (sic).

    MLK is nothing more than a historical springboard that only blacks can profess, regardless of the fact they are dead wrong as to his “Dream”, life, motivations, enemies and friends.

    To hear any black American under the age of 40 attempt to draw a similarity with MLK, Obama and the glass ceiling since the 60’s is nothing more than repeated historical and racist nonsense.

    The fact many blacks (*namely those multi-millionaires in H-Wood, music, Michelle Obama, etc) are now coming around to “liking America for the first time” lets us now just how lazy and inept the so-called black leaders in America have been. It’s also the reason why these charlatans were kept out of the Bambi team the entire time.

    The sad part will be, when Bambi doesn’t achieve all these “goals”, where will it leave black Americans?
    Still at a 70% absent father figure rate? Highest drop-out rate? Highest HIV/AIDS infection rate? Thousands brutally murdered through gang violence? And of course where will it leave all of America?

    The only thing keeping any bi-ped in America; from every race creed, religion, culture, etc. from succeeding in life is the thing staring back at them in the mirror…

  7. freeleep says:

    Odie,
    You are dead on and fortunatley I think even some black folks in the media are starting to come around. I saw the comedian D L Hughely on Cnn the other night hollering at Sharpton that he was a tenth grade drop out and was successful so , he had no sympathy for anyone making excuses for not succeeding. Al will jump on the black responsibilty bus as soon as he can figure out how to make it pay as well as his poverty pimp, racists are the root of all evil ,gig has

    Just as most addicts must bottom out with a near death experience in order to ‘see the light’, the world as a whole will have to bottom out with nanny government and collectivism. It’s like when you’re raising a child and you say, “Don’t put your hand on the hot stove”, the kid may just have to put his hand on the hot stove. They’re all reaching for it right now, and all the ‘hope’, desire for ‘change’, and good feelings in the world won’t alter the result.

    Most people can’t resist the temptation to play God, with the belief that they can change the laws of nature and human behavior, but it always ends badly.

  9. 12 Gauge Rage says:

    ‘But by the content of their character’ has been totally rendered null and void with the creation of affirmative action. The entire process is very condescending because it implies that a person is too stupid to get the job on their own personal merit. So instead the social engineers decide that a person of another ethnicity must be given preference over other more qualified applicants. What a crock! Is it possible that we can start a grassroots movement to have affirmative action declared unconstitutional?
