Booker T. Washington and the ‘TAINT’ of Uncle Tomism

“Black History Month” is basically a bad joke, and consists mainly of Historical revisionism (negationism) – i.e. “… the process that attempts to rewrite history by minimizing, denying or simply ignoring essential facts. Perpetrators of such attempts to distort the historical record often use the term because it allows them to cloak their illegitimate activities with a phrase which has a legitimate meaning. Illegitimate historical revisionists rely on a number of illegitimate techniques to advance their views such as presenting as genuine documents which they know to be forged, inventing ingenious but implausible reasons for distrusting genuine documents, attribute their own conclusions to books and other sources that say the opposite, manipulating statistical series to support their views, and deliberately mistranslate foreign languages sources to support their views.

Martin Luther King Jr. Was a Republican

Well, you can imagine the uproar that those billboards started, when the Democrats saw them. I didn’t see much coverage by the Democrats’ MSM, but the Leftists parts of the blogosphere were outraged. They called the NBRA and black Republicans every nasty name in the book, and then some. “LIARS!” was the most common description used, with demands that the NBRA “Prove It!” That “Prove It!” response caught my attention, i.e. it seemed as if the Democrats didn’t have any proof to dispute what the NBRA was saying. The NBRA waited to respond…then recently, they offered up the following:

In her article, “A Covenant With Life: Reclaiming MLK’s Legacy”, MLK’s niece, Dr. Alveda C. King, affirms that her uncle Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican
