Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King and a minister in her own right is being very outspoken about the disaster known as the Obama presidency. She calls Obama morally bankrupt and points out that blacks have suffered disproportionately during his administration. Ms King says (Speaking of Obama and Holder):
“All of our leaders—or many of our leaders—are just morally bankrupt right now. They’re not calling on God. We still say ‘In God We Trust’ and ‘One Nation Under God’ but we’re not practicing that. We need to call on God. There’s a moral bankruptcy in this country and we really need to come back to God.”
Dr King is joining with conservative black and Hispanic leaders as well as the Tea Party to reach out to black voters. They will be calling them to reject big government and to embrace smaller government with more freedom. The initiative is called, “Restore The Dream 2014,”. The main proponents of the initiative include Niger Innes, (son of CORE President Roy Innes) Dr Alveda King, Wayne Dupree, Lloyd Marcus and Ken Blackwell.
Dr King points out that under Obama, the black community has suffered and that things have gotten increasingly worse for Black Americans:
“The data is going to indicate black people lost out in every single leading economic category during the Obama years. That’s terrible. There’s nothing that’s been done to enhance our lives but there’s all sorts of things that were done to [give us stuff] like free access to abortion, free birth control in a healthcare clinic. But that’s nothing that’s going to help us economically, intellectually, physically health-wise and otherwise—there’s nothing being done for us. Black home ownership is 31 percent less than the rest of the country. Poverty rates have increased from 12 percent to 16.1 percent. Income for blacks is $20,000 less than the national average. Thirty-five percent of young blacks are out of work.”
“I’m not so locked into a political party—Republican, Democrat, independent—it doesn’t matter to me what your party affiliation happens to be. We just need to vote and have common sense and good morals when we elect our people. We need hope. We need for the lights to come back on. We need to shine the light of the Lord and the love of the Lord back onto the country. We need a restoration, and that’s how we can restore the dream.”
