For the betterment of Black Americans

As we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we remember a man who emphasized the importance of a person's character, not the color of his skin.

Dr. King clearly recognized the pitfalls of unending population growth and remarked that,

Unlike plagues of the dark ages or contemporary diseases we do not yet understand, the modern plague of overpopulation is soluble by means we have discovered and resources we possess. What is lacking is not knowledge of the solution, but the universal consciousness of the gravity of the problem and education of the billions who are its victims."
May 5, 1966 speech responding to an award by the Planned Parenthood Federation, delivered on his behalf by Mrs. Coretta Scott King

Dr. King did not directly comment on the mass immigration - population connection, namely because at the time, immigration was not the fundamental driver of US population growth that it has become. It is now well-known that mass immigration is driving US population to double this century. If we are to stabilize US population, we must curtail mass immigration. Doing so is absolutely consistent with Dr. King's position on population.

Dr. King recognized the distinct income disparity - and the disparity of economic opportunity - between working-class Blacks and their American counterparts of other races. Were he alive today, he would undoubtedly question why there has been no true wage increase for working-class Blacks in 40 years, and why 20.5% of African Americans are unemployed or underemployed.1

One can not ignore the role of mass immigration - particularly that of illegal immigration - in displacing Black American workers from the workforce. 11 million to 40 million illegal alien job seekers have snuck into America to work at sub-market wages and to steal jobs from African American workers.

Corporate America rejoices while Black American suffer.

Both political parties want more immigration and legalization of illegal aliens who have evaded capture in America, for entirely different reasons. Republican leadership (justifiably referred to as "Conservative, Inc.")  want an unending supply of cheap labor for their corporate constituents. They refuse to acknowledge what the Democratic party embraces: that immigrants overwhelmingly vote Democratic.

Legalization / amnesty of illegal aliens will devastate the Republican party, just as it will devastate the economic opportunities of working-class Blacks. Sadly, the Democratic party, to which many Blacks owe allegiance, will be instrumental in their economic demise.

Dr. King warned,

There is nothing more dangerous than to build a society, with a large segment of people in that society, who feel that they have no stake in it; who feel that they have nothing to lose. People who have a stake in their society, protect that society, but when they don't 'own' it, they want to destroy it."

He also observed that:

He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it."

Let us remember the principles upon which our great nation was founded while continuing to work for the betterment of Americans - of all races, creeds, and colors.
