Trump: 'I'd love to see a shutdown' over immigration - CNNPolitics -This is what Schumer and liberal Democrats refused to see during the first shutdown. This is how they always have been. This refusal to accept reality is what spurred MLK to write his letter from a Birmingham Jail. They took the pressure off of the President and sold out the DACA students out of fear that conservative Democrats might be in jeopardy during the Fall election cycle. This is a clear example of what the late Harvard Law School Professor Derrick Bell called "involuntary sacrifice". Why do they stubbornly keep blinders on their eyes. They refused to listen to the DACA students who wanted to continue the shutdown. These liberals always think they know better when it comes to other people's lives.

MALCOLM X: “Martin Luther King Jr. is a TRAITOR” - This is an example of Malcolm's intelligence. You may not agree with his attack on MLK but it it hard to argue with the logic and common sense found in his argument. Malcolm X represented equal personhood. For men especially it meant that Black men did not have to grovel before White men. I love him for that. Growing up he was much more appealing to me than King. His incite was far ahead of King's in my mind. King got there though in his famous April 4, 1967 speech "Beyond Vietnam at Riverside Church NYC. He never however was to untangle his confusion involving non violence as a tactic vs a philosophy. As a tactic non violence may be an other option but you cannot use non violence when someone is trying to kill you. You must fight back and kill them first. This was the practical side of Malcolm while MLK was lost in his idealistic but misguided non violent philosophy. As my best friend Charlie has always said "you have to speak in a language they understand".
