How many elections have passed since King's assassination - elections without a Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. candidacy for president?  Barack Obama, as Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Shirley Chisholm and Moseley Braun before him will not be quoting from speeches Dr. Rev. Martin Luther King made during the last year of his life. King's condemnation of a murderous U.S. foreign policy, of imperialism and international predatory capitalism would not be acceptable in an election process TV programmed by conglomerate owned media.

Confining praising Rev. King Jr. as the great leader of the U.S. civil rights movement is what is acceptable.  Every candidate will compete to praise King in order to prove a laudable stand on civil rights.

One can expect to hear nothing of King's blistering criticism of the massive loss of life in the nations suffering U.S. military wars of occupation and its connection to the civil rights abuses at home.    

During the past year OpEdNews has highlighted nine Jay Janson articles which review King’s, now media buried, thundering pronouncements in context with current events Rev. King was not permitted to live to speak about.

The articles are listed below, each with URL to conveniently click on:

February 13, 2007
1. “King's Anguish versus Our Apathy Then and Now / Quote Rev. King Day, the 15th of EACH Month”
