|When Dr King Was Alive He Faced A Number Of Threats
||Rev Ralph David Abernathy's House Bombed By Racist Whites
From Freedom Rides web site:
We were whisked from the airport to Rev. Ralph Abernathy's house, and immediately told to keep away from the windows, because knowledge of whites staying in a black home could cause us to be targeted by the Klan. Rev. Abernathy worked very closely with Martin Luther King, Jr., and because of his civil rights activities, had already had his home bombed. Threats continued to pour in. Dr. King who had become the Chairman of the Freedom Ride Coordinating Committee, and Rev. Abernathy opened his home to strategy meetings. The night of our arrival in Montgomery, we held a planning meeting with Drs. King and Abernathy. A group from Yale, including Rev. William Sloan Coffin and a group of divinity students was soon to arrive to join the rides. For maximum effect, it was decided that the Yale group would go as the next group, and Dave Myers and I were to wait until enough volunteers had amassed for the following busload. Meanwhile, Attorney General Kennedy had called out the National Guard to guard the bus stations, and the decision was finally made at the local level that state police would prevent additional major violence. The Yale group was bussed to Jackson, (I believe on Friday 26 May) where they were arrested and bailed out. We were relieved to hear that there was no violence

||The Grio.com: White Supremacist Cyber-Hackers Have Hijacked The Page Ranking Of "Google Searches".
Now when a search is done on Dr King - Their "racist" site appears first.
Failing to do so as evidenced by the splintering of our unity by asking questions about the priorities in our community we might end back up in the SLAVERY of having CompuServ and a 19.2Kbps dial up modem.
Someone had better go to the King Center For Non-Violent Social Change and suggest that they use some of those licensing feeds to invest in an enhanced web site that is hacker proof. I am not sure what I'd do if I tuned to the news and saw the daily stream of "murdered Black people" in Metro Atlanta replaced by a breaking story that the King Center's web site had been hacked.
At least the King Center's site still comes up at the top. Those RACISTS will stop at nothing to shame Black people!!!! Don't they have anything better to do?
