Martin Luther King Jr. was a Republican. He believed black America should strive to achieve the most of each opportunity through a dream of equality.
Like Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican president, he had to fight against the adversity of racism, where we should live in a color-blind society, where "all people are created equal."
The Democrats? They supported slavery and were the ones turning water hoses and dogs on black protesters in the 1960s.
Does the Democratic Party take advantage of those in black America? Is it good for black America to be represented mainly by one political party?
Never miss a local story.
Black America cannot gain political leverage if the Democratic Party is not forced to compete. The traditional solutions of the Democratic Party have not truly served black America.
It is time for black America to believe they can do better and achieve the dream envisioned by Martin Luther King.
