@TrumpPatriotPL @JackPosobiec @RealCandaceO 1) Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King: Address Concluding Selma to Montgomery March (3/25/65)

"Racial segregation as a way of life did not come about as a natural result of hatred between the races immediately after the Civil War. There were no laws segregating the races then.
@TrumpPatriotPL @JackPosobiec @RealCandaceO 2) "... segregation of the races was really a political stratagem employed by the emerging Bourbon Democrat interests in the South to keep the southern masses divided and southern labor the cheapest in the land.
@TrumpPatriotPL @JackPosobiec @RealCandaceO 3) " ... if poor white plantation or mill workers became dissatisfied with their low wages, the plantation or mill owner would merely threaten to fire them and hire former Negro slaves and pay them even less. Thus, the southern wage level was kept almost unbearably low.
@TrumpPatriotPL @JackPosobiec @RealCandaceO 4) "Toward the end of the Reconstruction era, something very significant happened. Populist Movement leaders began awakening poor white masses and former Negro slaves to the fact that they were being fleeced by the emerging Bourbon interests.
@TrumpPatriotPL @JackPosobiec @RealCandaceO 5) "... they began uniting Negro and white masses into a voting bloc that threatened to drive the Bourbon interests from their command posts of political power in the South. To meet this threat, the southern aristocracy began to engineer this development of a segregated society.
@TrumpPatriotPL @JackPosobiec @RealCandaceO 6) "Through their control of mass media, (the Democrat aristocracy) revised the doctrine of white supremacy. They saturated the thinking of the poor white masses, clouding their minds to the real issue involved in the Populist Movement.
@TrumpPatriotPL @JackPosobiec @RealCandaceO 7) "(The Democrat aristocracy) then directed the placement of laws on the books of the Southern states that made it a crime for Negroes and whites to come together as equals at any level. That crippled and eventually destroyed the Populist Movement of the nineteenth century.
@TrumpPatriotPL @JackPosobiec @RealCandaceO 8) "If it may be said of the slavery era that the white man took the world and gave the Negro Jesus, then it may be said of the Reconstruction era that the southern aristocracy took the world and gave the poor white man Jim Crow.
@TrumpPatriotPL @JackPosobiec @RealCandaceO 9) "And when (the poor white man's) wrinkled stomach cried out for the food that his empty pockets could not provide, he ate Jim Crow, a psychological bird that told him that no matter how bad off he was, at least he was a white man, better than the black man.
@TrumpPatriotPL @JackPosobiec @RealCandaceO 10) "And when his undernourished children cried out for necessities his low wages could not provide, he showed them Jim Crow signs on buses & in stores, on streets & in public buildings. And his children learned to feed upon Jim Crow, their last outpost of psychological oblivion.
@TrumpPatriotPL @JackPosobiec @RealCandaceO 11) "(Democrat aristocrats) segregated southern money from the poor whites; they segregated southern mores from the rich whites; they segregated southern churches from Christianity; they segregated southern minds from honest thinking; and they segregated Negroes from everything.
@TrumpPatriotPL @JackPosobiec @RealCandaceO 12) "That’s what happened when Negro & white masses of the South threatened to unite & build ... a society of justice where none would pray upon the weakness of others; of plenty where greed & poverty would be done away; of brotherhood where (every man's dignity would respected).
@TrumpPatriotPL @JackPosobiec @RealCandaceO 13) "We’ve come a long way since that travesty of justice was perpetrated upon the American mind ... The only normalcy that we will settle for is the normalcy that recognizes the dignity & worth of all of God’s children.
@TrumpPatriotPL @JackPosobiec @RealCandaceO 14) "Our aim must never be to defeat or humiliate the white man, but to win his friendship & understanding. The end we seek is a society at peace with itself, a society that can live with its conscience. That will be the day of man as man.
@TrumpPatriotPL @JackPosobiec @RealCandaceO 15) "I know you are asking today, 'How long will it take?' Somebody’s asking, 'How long will prejudice blind the visions of men, darken their understanding, and drive bright-eyed wisdom from her sacred throne?'
@TrumpPatriotPL @JackPosobiec @RealCandaceO 16) "Somebody’s asking, 'When will the radiant star of hope be plunged against the nocturnal bosom of this lonely night, plucked from weary souls with chains of fear and the manacles of death? How long will justice be crucified, and truth bear it?'
@TrumpPatriotPL @JackPosobiec @RealCandaceO 17) "I come to say to you this afternoon, however difficult the moment, however frustrating the hour, it will not be long, because 'truth crushed to earth will rise again.'

"How long? Not long, because 'no lie can live forever.'"
