I just can't get behind how these political parties claim him now that he's dead, when they were his primary opposition when he was alive.
I remember when he was getting Brock to start preparing for a run against Gore, after gore filibustered the Civil Rights bill for the 2nd time He filibustered it in the late 1950s.

This speech written by Richard Goodwin, left MLK in tears.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MxEauRq1WxQ

It is one of the greatest speeches ever delivered by an American politician.
It's a big part of why African Americans overwhelmingly vote Democratic.

There is no logic to back your position.

A few days ago when Moore was running for the Senate a group of people ran through Mobile, Selma, Montgomery and Birmingham getting African American voters to turn out and Jones won the race by 1.5%. Moore was the worst gop candidate in the state at that particular time....So the ring in the nose of the poor does work when they do need some votes...or it did this time. By 1.5%

If Trump had not campaigned "for luther strange" he would have beaten Moore in the first run....
