    FREEDOM’S GATE: Has Race Baiting Destroyed Martin Luther King’s Dream

    in News

    In 2015 Rev. Martin Luther King would be thinking about America the legacy of his struggles and if his dream were still relevant today. The celebrations that are being held in his honor throughout the nation are sadly tarnished by what race baiting has accomplished over the past several years.


    Rev. King and the leaders of the civil rights movement of the late 1950’s and 1960’s did not seek out individuals of questionable conduct and attempt to raise them up as heroes of a movement to free black people from racism and prejudice.  If he and others of that time had done that, the civil rights movement would have been dead on arrival.


    Join Lonnie Poindexter, national civil rights leader and celebrated host of the Freedom’s Journal Radio Show along with Darla Sutton Dawald, noted Tea Party leader, and head of One Nation Rising. They will be discussing the impact and effect of race baiting in America and how Rev. Martin Luther’s King’s legacy and dream can be recaptured.


    Later in the hour the guests will tackle just where in the world the traditional family hour in American homes has gone.  Has the absence at the dinner table had a damaging impact in families and in America?  Who or what is at fault and has its absence destroyed the fabric of home life and traditional values?  Is Hollywood, Gangster Rap music and violent video games part of the problem?


    We will discuss possible solutions to help lay the foundation for recapturing family hour in American homes on Freedom’s Gate, live Wednesday at 6:30pm EST and then available on demand. A production of Communities Digital News
