Dr. Alveda King speaks out about how blacks are waking up to the consequences of electing a president because of the color of his skin and not because of the content of his character.
TPNN’s Tim Constantine: It was more than 50 years ago that Dr. Martin Luther King talked about the importance of judging someone on the content of their character, not on the color of their skin. How much progress have we made? And…where do we go from here?
Dr. Alveda King: “When I consider the time of office of President Barack Obama…people voted for the president because of the color of his skin, not for the content of his character. I know that to be true, because many people have admitted that me to me, face to face. I said did you vote for him because of his platform or because of the color of his skin? Sometimes the answer is very defensive like: ‘Well yes I voted for him because of the color of his skin’ or ‘Yeah, I thought if we got a black president, things would be okay.’ And I say ‘how’s that working for you now?'”
