At the beginning of the week, I wrote, in honor of MLK Day, that Dr. King undoubtedly supported a secure Southern border. You may review it here.
Unsurprisingly, I got a little flack for it from a few on the left.
Yet I don’t know why it’s so surprising. It’s no more a revelation than that Dr. King was a Republican. According to his niece, Dr. Alveda King, MLK was Republican.
This should be a surprise to no one who knows the unvarnished history of America – who advocated for black Americans and who didn’t.
Somehow history has been rewritten. Check that. We know how. I believe it can be traced back to the death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., for before that time, most blacks were Republicans, and for good reason.
