  1. Many of those who foolishly think that they are doing things to show honor and respect to the late Dr.MLK the man and his dream for mankind there is no way in the world nor in the life to follow that anyone could tell me that Dr.King would be among them paying homage to a stone that cost millions and paid for by the very same forces that cause Dr.King and so many others to lose their life because of a dream . No Dr. King would be with those who understand that “The dream has been deferred” and America has written the poor a bad check of which those still owed are seeking payment in full.

    @Larry Barnett–I agree with you re: the absurd amount paid for the MLK Memorial. My other beef is that an African American sculptor was not chosen
    to sculpt the likeness of this great man.
    The cartoon says it: Dr. King was an activist. He would more than likely
    be with The Occupy Wall Street protestors. But Dr. KIng, like all great
    personages, was dichotomous. So, maybe he would not be there if he
    were still here.
    The main thing we all need to focus on is to MAINTAIN THE DREAM!!!
    GET INVOLVED!!!

    how could the KING FAMILY be so short sited? how could they let the very
    people that sanction his death put a down payment on their soul and dignity? have value lost it’s meaning in that family, is money the root of
    their understanding don’t they know how important they are to the principles
    Dr KING stood for. if he was not on the washington mall i would honor him
    for the value he brought to the black race of people in America .he gave
    the masses a rainbow of hope he rised our self esteem he made us feel
    better about our self, no amount of money in this world is worth that.
    PS AND TO ADD INSULT TO INJURY THEY CHOOSE A NONE BLACK TO
    BUILD HIS STATUE!!! WHAT WILL A ANGLO AFRICAN DO NEXT?
