Martin Luther King fought and died for us to have an opportunity, not for us to be given special treatment. It was a struggle for us to have access to jobs and education. He fought hard for us not to be judged by the color of our skin, but by the content of our character. He did not die for us to be in welfare. He did not die for us to be accepted in jobs and colleges just because we were minorities. He fought so that we could have an opportunity to fight and earn those spots.
He did not fight for standards to be lowered so that we were able to get in; He trusted us enough to know that we were qualify for the job, just as much as everybody else. Again, all we just needed was a chance. He did not die for us to kill each other. He did not die for us to destroy communities. He died for us to build them.
The statistics show that our number one killer is not the white man any longer. Oh yes, I know, there was a time when they were killing us left and right; they were our number one killer; but we are putting the current sick racist minds out of business; why? Because now, we are doing a great job in killing ourselves.
“A 2007 special report released by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, reveals that approximately 8,000 — and, in certain years, as many as 9,000 African Americans are murdered annually in the United States. This chilling figure is accompanied by another equally sobering fact, that 93% of these murders are in fact perpetrated by other blacks. The analysis, supported by FBI records, finds that in 2005 alone, for example, African Americans accounted for 49% of all homicide victims in the US — again, almost exclusively at the hands of other African Americans.” (http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2012/04/09/race-wars-part-1-the-shocking-data-on-black-on-black-crime/)
