I totally get this whole sense of protecting the President, not wanting to have any criticism against him, so you don’t hear it on Rush Limbaugh and on Fox News. I totally understand that. But the question is, will Black people lose our moral authority to speak to the issues that we care about?
The lesson we can learn from Dr. King is that he understood that Pres. Kennedy was an ally. He understood that Pres. Lyndon Baines Johnson was an ally. Dr. King also understood that the Black agenda should never be compromised and subjected to who is in the Oval Office.
