Dr. Martin Luther King’s Niece: MLK Wouldn’t Emrace NAACP’s “Homosexual Agenda”

Neither my great-grandfather, an NAACP founder, my grandfather Dr. Martin Luther King, Sr. an NAACP leader, my father Rev. A. D. Williams King, nor my uncle Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. embraced the homosexual agenda that the current NAACP is attempting to label as a civil rights agenda. In the 21st Century, the anti-traditional marriage community is in league with the anti-life community, and together with the NAACP and other sympathizers, they are seeking a world where homosexual marriage and abortion will supposedly set the captives free.”

Pro-life/anti-gay activist Alveda King, in a press release published by Christian Newswire.

      This just in: it’s easy to put words in people’s mouths when they’re dead (MLK Jr). NEXT!!

      Give me a break girl. Time has moved on and that ‘agenda’ you speak of is merely the demand for equal recognition. You really should know better. Shame on you.

      Well, since we are in the subject of putting words on the mouths of others, I wouldn’t be surprised if people like this woman die and God, in the subject of judging them, ends up saying something like “yeah, you believed in me and all. But you forgot about the part whre you’re not supposed to be an asshole about it.”

      *opens trap door to hell.

      Yeah. I ripped that off from some comic I read somewhere. But still…

      MLK’s wife said he would absolutely support gay rights. I’ll take her word for it over this wannabe.

      He’s dead. Who knows how he may have evolved. Let’s concern ourselves with the living.
      As for me, I’m all for setting the captives free.

      Alveda is a wreck who’s own aunt spoke out against her statements while she was alive. Now that Mrs. King is dead, Alveda wants to get her own spotlight in spite of all of the evidence to counter her speech.

      She does not represent the King legacy.

      Coreta Scott King:

      Constitutional amendments should be used to expand freedom, not restrict it, Coretta Scott King said Tuesday.

      “Gay and lesbian people have families, and their families should have legal protection, whether by marriage or civil union,” she said. “A constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriages is a form of gay bashing and it would do nothing at all to protect traditional marriages.”


      MLK worked extensively with an out gay black man in the 60s.

      She does not represent the King legacy. She’s an opportunist using her family name.

      His WIFE said he would support it.

      So who do we believe? His wife who lived with him and knew him, or some obviously closeted neice who didn’t know the man?

      Gee….I wonder.

      Anyone heard of Bayard Rustin?

      He was a gay man who worked closely with Dr. King…pretty sure the doc would approve.

      Every leading sociologist agrees that the gay and lesbian population were an integral part of the civil rights movement. Many of the supporters of the cause supported it because they were unable to actively fight for their own rights during that time period. Also, one of the very first attempts to fight for gay rights was a response to the dishonorable discharges of believed gay/lesbian service men/women. That response was spearheaded by black civil rights organizations.

    • Blah, bla..huh?

      Considering Dr. King’s ideas of resistance were developed by a gay man, Bayard Rustin must now slap your impudent face and send you to bed with no ding dong, fatty.

      MLK once said “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”. And what we are facing now is a great injustice. Discrimination and violence towards GLBT, from small scale to large scale. Gay kids bullied at school to zero equality given to gay marriage. If Harvey Milk is still alive, I’m pretty sure he can put up a good fight with this fat bitch. And we will support him.

      She is clearly bi-racial so therefore she is only about a quarter offensive to her black civil rights brethren. Otherwise we can chalk it up to mostly white ignorance :-(

      @villa viper:

      So lets see, this woman is using the name of one of the most famous civil rights defenders in the last century, a becon of hope to the black community and trying to turn that name against gays, by attacking the NAACP, but you use it as an opportunity to somehow turn it around to attack whites.

      You should probably see somebody for that.

      Isn’t she the LaToya Jackson of the King family? Who cares what she thinks.

      Wasn’t she once known as Alveda King BEALE? Which begs the question, why is she longer identified by the name that she took in HOLY matrimony?

      @cam: I would rather like to think the most historically famous oppressors (whites) would be responsible for her idiot ideology than her groundbreaking black relatives..umm…yes :-)

      @villa viper:
      Absolutely true.
      Slaves were taught Southern evangelical Christianity – the horrible tradition that gave us Falwell, Robertson, etc.
      Quakers, Unitarians, anti-slavery Northern Baptists were of course allowed nowhere near slaves.

      She looks too light to be a real black.
