    Achieving The Dream (MLK Jr., Jamiel Shaw, and Immigration)

    Achieving The Dream
    January 22, 2013
    By G. Perry

    Martin Luther King Jr. is perhaps the most iconic symbol of this countryís struggle for civil rights during the latter half of the 20th century. He also symbolized the aspirations-social, economic, and spiritual-of black Americans. Thatís why the official commemoration of his birth-marked by a federal holiday yesterday-is the perfect occasion to examine the parlous condition of Martin Luther Kingís heirs.

    The latest edition of Jamielís Law examines the problems they currently face, including the concerted effort to ethnically cleanse them from the city of Los Angeles, a town which once served as a springboard to middle class prosperity for scores during the Great Migration. It also takes to task the shameful record of most-if not all-black elected officials in this country, who continue to pander to the Democratic Partyís most cosseted constituency, even if it means they wind up on the short end of the stick.

    How MLK Jr. would view todayís current crop of black politicians is unknowable, but the impact theyíve had upon their constituents has been inarguably malign, as their lockstep resistance to SB 1070-style bills and deteriorating economic prospects demonstrate. If only the politicians we elected represented our interests as Americans. Alas, they do not, something the late Terry Anderson knew well. Black or white, the men and women who are sent to Albany and Washington D.C. only care about those who are bankrolling their campaigns and bolstering their efforts to retain power, which is increasingly built upon the maintenance of ethnic lobbying blocs.

    As we head into the second term of the Obama administration, itís important to remember that our current political dynamics rely upon balkanization, not unity of purpose, and the distribution of spoils, rather than the reductions of impediments to our pursuit of freedom. Notwithstanding the Presidentís vainglorious opinion of his administrationís achievements, some people know whatís really happening. Kudos to Jamiel Shaw Sr. and the Shaw family-among others-for daring to point out that the emperor-as well as his many servitors-have no clothes.
