    I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.

    back when MLK was alive, and for decades after, those who are trump voters today hated that uppity civil rights leader, spread lies about him being a communist, and refused to even listen to and try to understand the depth of intelligence, logic, and moral clarity MLK exhibited through some of the best public speeches in our history, or in the history of the world. but, thankfully, today, even a lot of trump voters recognize his greatness. maybe someday that be will true for President Obama, too.

    I prefer we keep this thread as non-political as possible. Thank you.

    "It's all about love." A couple of my mentors who have been gone for a few years used to say that and live it all the time. I can still hear them.

    and I prefer to talk about how true it is that when MLK was alive, most trump voters who were alive then thought he was an uppity smarty pants communist or uppity "community organizer" who pretended to care about civil rights when really he just wanted to be able to date white girls without being lynched.

    Lets hope my party lets the hate go before self destruction.

    You miss the point.

    It's not about Dr. King. It's about what he said.

    I agree. you are a trump voter and a member of a bigoted, sexist, corrupt party that is too gutless to hold Trump accountable for his actions because they fear political consequences.

    Perhaps the distinction is too subtle for some.

    I was being optimistic that you were not among them. Forgive my error.
