I have written before of my mistrust of the Obama phenomena and his philosophy and policies. So I was taken by this quote by Glen Ford, the Executive Editor of BlackAgendaReport.com
Black Agenda Report is an excellent source of information and analysis. It offers intelligent and penetrating insights into contemporary social, political and economic issues from the perspective of Black America."Since the onset of the Obama phenomenon, Dr. Martin Luther King’s birth and death days have been “polluted” by false and ahistorical comparisons between Obama and MLK. The two men represent opposite political poles: one, a radical opponent of imperial war and concentrated economic power, the other, an ally of Wall Street and commander-in-chief of “the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today".
