No comparison of struggles

Last month, I expressed views about the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. assassination. Did the Nobel Peace Prize which Dr. King received in 1964 reveal an opportunity for profit? After Dr. King died, “career” civil rights activism exploded. “Wannabe” community activists in this county obstructed, diverted and manipulated outside media coverage during my 2003 Hardin County School Board incident. 

Rush Limbaugh coined the term “rent-a-mob” which accurately depicts most current civil rights efforts. Community activists exist from monetary contributions. Rich liberals have “created” black issues out of unrelated ones through community activists willing to sell either their skin color or credentials. I’ll use homosexuality as an example. To he whom much is given, much is expected.

Christian ministers Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson failed to meaningfully stand up to President Barack Obama on homosexual marriage. They allow liberals the use of their notoriety in exchange for personal gain, know who butters their bread and exemplify rent-a-mob leaders. Now, many blacks actually believe homosexuals experience the same type of discrimination as blacks and women. Unreal.

Homosexuality centers around sexual acts between people of the same gender and only can be verified during such acts. I don’t have to do anything to be identified as a black man. Worthy issues can stand alone.
