Natinr, I don't think it was pandering. Remember, this wasn't a speech. This was a personal conversation between Martin Luther King and Harry Belafonte. Harry shared this information with us. He thought we should know about it. I think Harry was trying to show that King was not a naive as people portrayed him to be. King was a bit conflicted when the civil right legislation passed. He was reflective in a similar way that some "Blacks" are reflective now of Barack Obama's possible democratic nomination.

We are wondering if this is really a good thing.

The issue for us is that if Barack is nominated, many "Blacks" will be even more tied to this racist system than they already are. Trapped in flames with no way to escape. Many "Blacks" are already locking themselves in by trying to use the election as a gauge on how much racism still exists. The two are totally independent of each other. "Whites" would have nominated Malcolm X, if they were assured that they could control him. Barack is now pandering to them the way "White" candidates traditionally pandered to us. Did you hear that crap about how he thinks Reagan was some kind of pioneer?

Any "Blacks" using that screwed up definition of racism, are now banking on this possible nomination as some sign of a deterioration of "White" supremacy. Every modern day "White" supremacist concedes that there are a few exceptional "Blacks". It is just that most of us are worthless.

"Why We Cant Wait"

"Where Do We Go From Here"

I think these two books progressively addressed what King saw as various stages of struggle, and the need for a change from the capitalist system which was not adequate in addressing the needs of the growing underclass as more black workers gained civil liberties. Some suggested King was a communist but I think he was more influenced by the socialist forces he worked with in organizing black workers which was going into organizing trade unionists across racial lines. I think this system is "tapping out" and King knew this day was gonna come.

In fact, I also think it's quite ironic that Bush is now talking about pumping money into the economy right before King's holiday. Look at how the financial markets responded.
