今天,由于俄罗斯安全部门对唐纳德·特朗普(Donald Trump)有污点,并勒索他遵循克里姆林宫的政策,Kompromat(获取和利用经常破坏性性质的妥协材料的用语)在今天的新闻中非常流行。

在马丁·路德·金纪念日那天,我们可以记得一位伟大的美国人-马丁·路德·金纪念日,他是美国历史上最臭名昭著的kompromat攻击者。

我正在重新整理我去年在FBI针对King的六分磁带/自杀运动中所做的帖子。

我还要指出,在美国总统上集结的最成功的kompromat档案是莫妮卡·莱温斯基(Monica Lewinsky)的蓝色连衣裙。

您知道吗,这件衣服上有比尔·克林顿(Bill Clinton)的精液,放在她的壁橱后面,忘了带给清洁工?

勒索元素虽然也遭到忠诚的自由主义者本人的拒绝和忽视,并在弹each听证会上被轻描淡写,但仍然存在。 如果您认为是克林顿总统无私的仁慈所致,便与弗农·乔丹(Vernon Jordan)为莫妮卡·莱温斯基(Monica Lewinsky)进行了面试,那么……

一位总统屈服于性敲诈并撒谎是无可厚非的。 没发生。

我们得到的最好的是佩吉·诺南(Peggy Noonan),她指控卡斯特罗(Castro)勒索克林顿(Clinton)与莱温斯基(Lewinsky)进行电话性交录音,这充实了美国政治言论的词汇,这一说法是有道理的,这似乎是当前话语的lo头。推测是不负责任的吗? 不这样做是不负责任的。”

也许有人会认为,总统精液是目前最好的kompromat,但作为刺激性的读者,例如 原始的恐惧飘女孩 会告诉你,甚至有办法解决这个问题!

一旦安全服务介入,我们将一路顺风顺水。

作为说明,请考虑以下情况:

有可能的猜测是,美国政府伪造了一台打字机,以定罪阿尔杰·希斯(Alger Hiss)。 令人信服的是,这台打字机被确定为Hiss的打字机(他已经摆脱了它,但FBI对其进行了追踪),并显示出与产生惠特克·钱伯斯(Whitaker Chambers)臭名昭著的“南瓜纸”的机器是同一台机器。

但是最令人毛骨悚然的是(包括理查德·尼克松(Richard Nixon)所谓的陈述,“我们是在Hiss案上建造的[打字机]”)是联邦调查局找不到Hiss打字机。 取而代之的是,获得并修改了一个相似的模型,以便可以复制键入南瓜纸的原始计算机的“指纹”。 维基百科有一个 优秀的帐户 案件和打字机的争议。

联邦调查局(FBI)不好!

但是,这个谣言是基于以下结论得出的结论,即联邦调查局由于维纳纳拦截事件而将希斯确定为苏联特工,该结论的存在并不想在公开法庭上披露,因为钉住希斯的代价。

嗯...

正如有人曾经在电视节目“杀人犯”一案中提到的那样,有时候警察会使人感到内………

或他们认为有罪的人

…或他们希望他们有罪的人。

要记住的东西!

也许不要让IC推动特定的政治议程。

因此,Buzzfeed是否应该发布MLK六边形? 请记住,它发布了《特朗普文件》,并不是因为它可以保证指控的准确性。 档案在整个华盛顿官方流传,并且媒体和公众都有知情权,即使是最后一次知情,这一事​​实也是有道理的。

显然,在华盛顿,很多人都听了MLK录音带,就像特朗普的档案中有许多人讨论的一样。 据我所知,马丁·路德·金(Martin Luther King)录像带上事件的真实性(如果不是联邦调查局产生的性英雄组合)没有人受到挑战。

至于莫斯科角的公共利益/人偶,监视国王并试图用性爱录像带摧毁他的最直接理由是胡佛的信念-至少在公共领域,联邦调查局从未成功证明这一点-关键的国王顾问是一名国王。苏联特工。

天哪,美国公众是否应该有权听美国情报部门提供的涉嫌性剥削的录音带,对美国最高民权领袖是否容易受到苏联的操纵进行判断?

但是,可以假设的是,当胡佛去世时,所有King录音带的副本都被销毁了,这使Buzzfeed避免了真正现实生活中的选择。

但我们可以欣赏唐纳德·特朗普(Donald Trump)饰演马丁·路德·金(Martin Luther King)的21世纪的奇观 分身 (如果只涉及深层次的性爱kompromat运动)。

这是我原来的帖子的翻版,修剪了一下,并从我另一幅胡佛的帖子中添加了几张图片,“每个人都想要自己的斯塔西设立的区域办事处外,我们在美国也开设了办事处,以便我们为当地客户提供更多的支持。“

深层状态和性爱录像带:马丁·路德·金,J。埃德加·胡佛和瑟古德·马歇尔

以马丁·路德·金(Martin Luther King)为例,美国的深层国家与政治和公民权利以及瑟古德·马歇尔(Thurgood Marshall)的非裔美国法律平等战略在某种丑陋和危险的方式相交。

它们在一个最不愉快和不愉快的时刻相交,当人们对金博士为争取民权而进行的斗争感到乐观,感觉良好时,这一点在很大程度上被忽略了:FBI臭名昭著的MLK性爱录像带。

录音带的存在最令人不舒服的问题不是金博士的人的食欲和婚姻忠诚方面的不足。 这有可能被勒索,这是联邦调查局和美国政府本可以利用录像带对金博士及其民权运动方向施加的影响。

录音带的外壳也为美国深层国家与另一位非裔美国民权巨头Thurgood Marshall之间的关系闪耀出尴尬的光芒。

对于背景,我强烈推荐吉尔伯特·金(Gilbert King) 格罗夫恶魔:瑟古德·马歇尔,格罗夫兰男孩和新美国的黎明。 就像他们今天所说的那样,在弗格森,加纳等人的语境下读这本书确实使我很烦。 根据我的经验,我建议您拿起书并阅读,而不要使用“ Groveland Boys”,也不要看书的一些评论。 我只能说的是,尽管字幕确定为晴天,但它将带您进入一些非常黑暗的地方。

实际上,我要说的是,这本书还对J.埃德加·胡佛(J. Edgar Hoover)的联邦调查局(FBI),金博士(King Dr)所服务的政治民权运动与以类似的奉献精神进行的“法律”民权法律斗争之间的关系提供了更有趣的见解。和瑟古德·马歇尔(Thurgood Marshall)的个人勇气。

正如我在上一篇文章中所写的那样,“每个人都想要自己的斯塔西”,胡佛(Hoover)不喜欢马丁·路德·金(Martin Luther King),并认为他是制造麻烦的人,而且有可能是共产主义资产。

胡佛历史上最有趣的章节之一是肯尼迪兄弟与胡佛一起在马丁·路德·金(Martin Luther King)问题上领导的致命舞蹈,尤其是国王的白人顾问史丹利·列维森(Stanley Levison)所谓的共产主义者关系。 勒维森在与金开始合作之前,显然已在1956年把共产主义打断了意识形态,超越了匈牙利。

认识到史诗般的火车将降落于任何人,这些人不负责任地声称金是在苏联特工的建议下采取行动的,如今,每个人对这个问题的说法都极为谨慎和谨慎。 [这里是 出色,明智的分析 大卫·加罗(David Garrow)于2002年撰写的有关Levison的文章 大西洋组织。 (CH,1/14/15),但不是胡佛(Hoover)和联邦调查局(FBI)在1960年代。 胡佛决心建立李维森目前的共产主义关系,以抹黑金和运动,而罗伯特·肯尼迪(Robert Kennedy)作为股份公司将胡佛以黑袋,窃听和窃听金币的方式,将李维森及其同伙提高到第n级,以试图建立联系。 吸烟枪从未出现过(李维森确实在国会委员会的一次秘密会议上被拖拉,在那里他否认“现在或曾经有过”,然后拿走了这5个th (在所有其他问题上),而肯尼迪家族则不允许他们胡闹,以反对胡佛国王,以及联邦调查局(FBI)进入椭圆形办公室及其国会盟友的不间断反帝王级争吵和媒体。

好吧,不完全是。 胡佛的竞选活动使李维森产生了足够的毒性,以至于肯尼迪家族赢得了国王的支持,以打破与他的公开联系,这是白宫支持国王努力的条件。 Levison继续通过抠图与King进行合作。

And thanks to the Kennedys’ desire to hedge their security and political bets, the FBI did collect enough tapes of King’s bedroom activities in order to produce one of the seamiest COINTELPRO crimes: the attempt to drive King to suicide by sending the tapes and a jeering letter to his home urging him to commit suicide (not at the behest of the Kennedys, I might point out).

Remarkably, the relationship between Thurgood Marshall and Martin Luther King, two civil rights icons, does not seem to have been any closer or sympathetic than the ties between Marshall and J. Edgar Hoover, judging by Marshall’s attitude toward the sex tape compiled by Hoover.

读者可以自己判断 片段 根据马歇尔传记作家胡安·威廉姆斯的访谈记录:

问:(胡佛)是否担心国王是共产党员?

答:他对共产主义的看法完全是模糊的。 这太不可思议了。 我不知道他发生了什么,我不知道发生了什么,但是发生了一些事情。
不,这是个人的。 他窃听了金所拥有的一切。 一切。 那个是纽约私人侦探的朋友,也是我的好朋友巴克·欧文斯(Buck Owens)。 他打电话说,巴克,你认识马丁·路德·金吗? 他说,不。 他说,你知道有人去吗? 他说是的。 他说很好,请您告诉他,不要使用我的名字,但我正在调查他所拥有的一切。 即使他上厕所。 我的意思是我们已经把所有东西都弄错了,我认为这是一个肮脏的绝招,他应该知道这一点。
巴克给我打电话,我给金兄弟打电话。 那时他在亚特兰大。 我告诉了他,他说,哦,算了,没事了。 只是对他不感兴趣。 他就是这么说的。 他不在乎,不。

问:您如何解释?

答:我没有,而且从未能够做到。 他没有做错任何事。 好吧,他们不是没有人可以这么说。 正确的。 正确的。 当我打电话给他并告诉他他的房子全都被窃的时候,他说什么呢? 不会打扰我。 他就是这么说的。

问:你们知道这些天他们谈论的所有性爱话题吗?

答:我知道故事已经讲完了。 我知道是谁把他们赶出去了。

问:胡佛先生?

答:不,这是一家私人警察公司。 他们曾经解决罢工和一切。 [Pinkertons]我不是在说,我不知道,我不知道他是对的还是胡佛是对的。 我不知道哪一个是对的。

问:您如何看待他不关心被窃听的事实?

答:答案很简单。 我不知道一个人是否能做所有事情。 一晚有五六个女人,五到六次。 我们把所有这些加起来,我的意思是他不能同时将所有这些地方放在一起。 我个人不相信它。 但是我不知道,当我是总检察长时,发生了很多事情,总检察长与联邦调查局局长之间的争论,根据内部规则,我必须得到所有这些文件的副本。 我们必须有一个特别的保险箱,我知道在我听和读的所有东西中,我从未发现胡佛先生撒过谎。 不止一次。 我不知道,我不是说他总是说实话–

问:您从未发现他有过说谎吗?
答:是的。 我的意思是从来没有证明他是骗子。 他总是想出正确的东西,通常这是录音的事情。 您可以通过录音带辨别。 我不知道。 但这是在他之间,我认为唯一的方法就是将他和King放在同一房间。 这样做为时已晚。

马歇尔的言论支持蒂姆•韦纳(Tim Weiner)在纽约拍摄的胡佛肖像。 敌人 作为一个精明而精干且能干的官僚,他有效地完成了他不可能完成的任务-在《宪法》对公民自由的要求与行政部门对普遍情报的要求相抵触之间徘徊,并取得了数十年的成功……

……也许就像马歇尔在他为争取公民权利而进行的史诗般的斗争中,缩小了宪法,州法律和正义之间的灰色地带。

与马歇尔对金和杰西·杰克逊的轻蔑态度形成鲜明对比:

谁制作了杰西·杰克逊(Jesse Jackson)? 新闻。 谁使马丁·路德·金成为国王? 新闻界,他们做到了。 因为写得好,所以写得好。 而且您知道马丁·路德·金(Martin Luther King)没有宣传人员。 不,先生。 媒体做到了一切。 媒体做到了一切。

阅读马歇尔关于他与金在监视问题上尴尬交流的叙述,我很难相信金对激烈监视的反应确实是“哦,算了,什么也没有。” 只是对他不感兴趣……他不在乎,不。”

我有一种感觉,金真的不是那样。 也许他在想什么,“马歇尔,他靠近胡佛。 我不会让它回到我心烦或害怕的胡佛身边。 那就是他想要的。”

大卫·加罗的国王传记, 承受十字架,告诉我们这封信的实际后果:

联邦调查局的可怕威胁让金陷入了更糟糕的心理状态。 他变得如此紧张和不安,以至于无法入睡……“他们是来打断我的,”他通过窃听的电话线告诉一位密友。 “他们出来抓我,骚扰我,破坏我的精神。”……金……决定必须对联邦调查局的威胁采取一些措施。 他曾试图在一个只有另外两个人知道的私人隐蔽处休息,结果亚特兰大消防车出现在门口,以回应金正确地推测为联邦调查局上交的虚假警报,以进一步让他不安……作为一个极度沮丧的金……讨论了联邦调查局的情况[该局​​在纽约金的旅馆房间里窃听了]……谈话揭示了金是多么不安……金[描述]磁带的邮寄,“上帝要救你, ”并且作为来自上帝的警告,金没有履行他的职责……当金在巴尔的摩时,[安德鲁]杨和[拉尔夫]阿伯纳西在华盛顿会见了[联邦调查局的德克]德洛奇[否认]联邦调查局对……金的私生活感兴趣。 Young 和 Abernathy 知道 DeLoach 的断言是错误的……Young 后来解释说,它的一个价值是向他展示像 DeLoach 这样的 FBI 高管“几乎是一种法西斯心态。 这真的有点吓到我了”……德洛奇对他的上级幸灾乐祸地说,他试图让谈话尽可能地不愉快和尴尬……与此同时,该局继续全力以赴。 助理局长沙利文试图破坏纪念金的晚宴……并联系了两位著名的佐治亚州新闻记者……向他们提供金的个人生活花絮……” [pp。 373-77]

A complicating element of the situation that King had been previously aware of Hoover’s hostility, and that the FBI was building a file on his sexual activities. At first, in November 1964, King tried to go on the offensive against Hoover. King critiqued Hoover’s alleged shortcomings in investigating civil rights cases and went the extra mile in denouncing Hoover (in calls wiretapped by the FBI) as “too old and broken down” and “getting senile.” Then King proposed, in Garrow’s words, that Hoover “should be ‘hit from all sides’ with criticism in a concerted effort to get President Johnson to censure him.” [p. 361]. As one might expect, this gambit failed to sway Johnson.

相反,金处于不愉快的境地,他意识到自己冒犯了一个极其无情、有能力和报复心的国家安全官僚,他也有证据证明金的个人生活细节可能会毁了他。

在司法部长尼古拉斯·卡岑巴赫安排的一次会议上,金试图回溯并与胡佛和解的努力,即使不是从一开始就注定要失败,也为时已晚,金在接下来的几周里一直处于焦虑之中,这甚至掩盖了他胜利的外表。他在斯德哥尔摩获得诺贝尔和平奖。

然后,联邦调查局在 1965 年 XNUMX 月放下了锤子,发送了录音带和自杀信。 他的妻子科雷塔听到了录音。 金召集他的顾问来应对迫在眉睫的羞辱、耻辱和失败的威胁。

国王,背负着这种难以想象的精神和情感负担,坠入了塞尔玛的漩涡……

……显然,这就是国王性爱录像带的传奇结束的地方。

加罗传记中对胡佛的下一次提及发生在 1965 年 XNUMX 月,在国王在阿拉巴马州塞尔玛和蒙哥马利的胜利以及 LBJ 支持对非裔美国人的联邦投票权保护之后:

金知道联邦调查局仍然对他的个人生活有浓厚的兴趣,他非常担心该局令人尴尬的录像带被公开披露。 他请一位长期的家庭朋友,芝加哥的 Rev. Archibald J. Carey, Jr. 与他在 FBI 层级中的朋友交谈。 凯西这样做了,并向金报告说,继续公开赞扬联邦调查局的成就是明智之举。 [425]

Hmmm. That’s all? Recall that Hoover bore an intense personal dislike for King, had information that could destroy King’s reputation and public standing and, indeed, had already played the sex tapes for much of official and unofficial Washington. Judging by the FBI’s machinations, Hoover would have been glad to see King commit suicide. For King, suppressing the tapes had been a matter of desperate, existential importance and endless worry.

毕竟,所有致命的 J. Edgar Hoover 想要的只是一些来自马丁路德金的慷慨的公职人员?

不要这样

我只能推断LBJ,唯一一个与胡佛有必要的中风和个人关系来引导和修改导演行为的人,说服胡佛磁带应该放在保险箱里。

或许胡佛没有动,因为 LBJ 让他相信,还有更多激进和可怕的非裔美国领导人要摧毁,而金,相比之下,实际上是一支可控的、温和的力量。

也许,在他保险箱里的性爱录像带——并且就像一把达摩克利斯之剑悬在金的头上——胡佛相信他可以把金视为一种可以被访问、引导、哄骗、欺负,如果需要公开的东西在该局涉及非裔美国人民权运动的行动过程中名誉扫地。

金是一位理想主义者,他主张“尽可能地”支持美国。

胡佛和马歇尔是“在创建时”的两个内部人士,他们的崇高地位和权力是对美国政府“现状”的矛盾和潜力的来之不易的、卓越的理解的结果。

他们的生活——以及对国家的服务——走上了不同的道路。

在国王监视期间,马歇尔担任上诉法院法官; 次年,LBJ 任命他为副检察长,并于 1967 年提名马歇尔为最高法院的一个席位。 胡佛一直担任联邦调查局局长,直到 1972 年去世。当然,马丁路德金于 4 年 1968 月 XNUMX 日在孟菲斯被暗杀。

也许将 4 月 XNUMX 日宣布为“马丁路德金纪念日”会更有意义地承认金博士的苦难、斗争和牺牲。

  1. Yes, but Buzzfeed would be sure to make his handler a gay cuban and his lover in order to make Dr. King a more sympathetic character worthy of permanent installation in the Democrat Pantheon of Social Justice Warriors.

    You also have to wonder how cooperative the media would have been at helping Hoover promote the content of the tapes. Murrow, Cronkite, etc. were all invested in King’s success, they may have run a campaign against the authenticity of the tapes. LBJ also may have told Hoover it would get ugly for him if he kept pressing the issue.

  3. Well sure they’d peddle their papers with it. MLK was anti LGBTQI, which would make him fair doxing game today. His “Beloved Community” concept is on the other side of identity politics. Worse, he’s a heretic to the duopoly status quo belief in continuous warfare for continuous profits, even the “progressive” humanitarian wars of the Samantha Powers that be.

    Check your privilege, Dr. King!

    ROTFL, now that tape would have been real.

    It would have King humping a ho while shouting “I’m effing for god.”

    And then he would smack some ho across the room, and she would fall unconscious. Adn then King would laugh like a baboon and holler wild and relate how funny what he done to his pal.

    The real King was no better than Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson.

    He was a great actor as Saint Martin. He was really just Fartin’ Poother Bling.

    http://www.straightdope.com/columns/read/2449/was-martin-luther-king-jr-a-plagiarist

    Granted, he did lead a great movement.

    But it was filled with lies because:

    1. It was a Trojan Horse trick. It was not a sincere offering of Peace but really just an attempt to Fleece whitey.

    2. The premise of King-ism, that whites and blacks are only different by skin color, is so wrong. That is why racial problems linger. Blacks are naturally stronger, tougher, more aggressive, and generally less intelligent. So, the achieve less in academics.
    They would bound to cause more social strife and mayhem.
    On the other hand, blacks achieve more in sports and pop music. So, white folks like black style but fear black fist.
    So, whites lionize and admire most what they fear the most. They fear black thugs but worship black athletes. They fear black robbers but shake their butts to black rap. White couples fear black criminals, but cuck-couples or cuckples invite ‘black bulls’ to hump white wife.
    So, this nation is all messed up and schizo.

    False Premise will never fulfill the Promise. Premise determines the outcome of the Promise. Premise of Civil Rights Movement was wrong.

    We need to speak the truth about racial differences and come up with a new premise for the future based on HBD.

    Btw, MLK cult isn’t just some remembrance but the new religion of America, along with Homomania. And neo-religions or neoligions are best countered by mockery and irreverence than by rational argument. We need some iconoclasm against the Bouncer of the Mall.

    We should all lead a movement to have the King Files released as soon as possible. The public has a right to know. This ain’t no theocracy. It is a secular state, and we demand to know the truth about the man that the state made ‘god’.

    King’s speech, the deleted parts:

    I have a dream, there be 20 nekkid ho’s be waiting fo’ me at the hotel.
    Sheeeiiiit!!!

  6. Anon • 免责声明 说:

    FBI should have spilled the beans on King and spared us the BS aura around King.

    If the dirty secrets on King had been released, two things could have happened, both better than what followed.

    1. Fall of King, seen by the public as a degenerate and hypocrite. After all, King didn’t just lead a movement but postured as a saint-prophet. He was acting all holy-shmoly and was full of himself. This was all BS as he was a loutish punk in real life. The problem is less King as a political figure(as black demands during the Civil Rights Era were sound and legit by the rules of US Constitution) than as a ‘spiritual’ figure whose utopian ‘dream’ is something we should atone for and aspire to. But how did King live out this ‘dream’? He cheated, had drunken orgies, and acted like Snoopy Dog Doggy in GIRLS GONE WILD videos. The only reason he went to the mountaintop was to bang some ho’s.

    2. King would have survived the scandal but would have led as a political operator than as some holier-than-thou prophet of the hour. That would have been better because Race Relations were far more complicated than a case of ‘bad racist whites’ oppressing ‘good peace-loving blacks marching with King’. While it’s true that American Society withheld full equality to blacks, the reasons on the white side were compelling: Social equality with blacks would lead to biological inequality whereby stronger and more aggressive blacks would bully, attack, rob, assault, rape, and murder whites. So, BOTH sides had legit reasons in the racial conflict. In a law, Segregation was social compensation for the the fact that evolution made blacks the stronger and more aggressive race. Segregation was Compensatory Parity. If whites are deficient in physical power to defend themselves from blacks, then they need social and legal compensation to provide them with extra security against tough-n-rough Negroes. It’s like NY has Stop-and-Frisk and spends lots of money to keep the Negroes down. Financial power offers Compensatory Parity for Jews and whites in NY against angry and vicious Negroes who tore that city apart in the 70s and 80s.

    If King had been a political leader with real demands(without all that pompous holy talk), the issues might have been handled more honestly, and a sounder deal might have been struck between whites and blacks.
    But the holy aura around King disseminated the BS that all these peace-loving blacks were demanding a bit of justice under the leadership of messiah King.
    One good thing about Malcolm X was he was willing to put all the cards on the table and talk honestly about the problems between whites and blacks. He was angry(understandable) but also forthright. In contrast, MLK was always a sermonizing punk who was so full of hisself.

    We need to deal with the Real Negro, not the Magic Negro. King-ism mucked up race relations with the sacralization of the Negro. We can’t think back to the Civil Rights Era with a clear mind because of the Cult of King. It’s like Christians cannot think clearly about the story of Jesus since He is seen as Son of God. King has been made into some kind of holy figure in American mythos, but he was just some punkass mofo.

    If King had been exposed as a ‘gangsta’, he might have led a movement as a hard-nosed political figure than a holier-than-thou pompousard. And there would have been less quasi-spiritual BS associated with wild-ass Negroes.
    His message would have been, “My folks want a piece of the pie, honkey!! So, what you gonna give us, and then we can talk some more, honkey.”
    If King had come down to ground and acted more like George Jefferson, then racial relations and politics would have had more clarity, honesty, and sense.

    Maybe we should blot out King from all history books and documentaries and replace him with George Jefferson. Instead of all that pompous talk, it will have Jefferson giving us some straight talk.

    Astute comments. I’ve often wondered whether an evolution of Jim Crow/segregation towards a more humane, but still separate, arrangement would have been preferable to the Civil Rights Act/ Voting Rights Act outcome. King’s genius, such as it was, was his realization from his living in the North, that northern whites could be turned against southern whites via the power of television. The canny politician is much more interesting than the plaster saint.

    I’m in my seventh decade and I do not remember when race relations were worse.

    “I’ve often wondered whether an evolution of Jim Crow/segregation towards a more humane, but still separate, arrangement would have been preferable to the Civil Rights Act/ Voting Rights Act outcome.”

    Agree. You’re one acute observer, DH. Having one’s grievances and their supposed remedies institutionalized by law seems to have done little to ameliorate overall Black-White relations.

    Mel Watkins, a Black literary figure and author of 与陌生人共舞, writes affectionately of his and my home town, a Northern industrial city. Racial “boundaries”, such as they were, did exist and were often honored in the breach, and were voluntaristic. I don’t recall race being a hot topic of front porch conversation by adults until federal intervention 通过 the Voting Rights Act, and so on.

  12. Sean 说:

    There was evidence of MLK being unfaithful to his wife but considering that the entire press corp knew JFK had several young women (inc two dubbed “Fliber and Flubbber”) employed at White House solely for the president’s sexual pleasuring, and kept it secret, it is doubtful if a tape of MlK with a woman not his wife would have finished him. It might have finished Hoover though. Hoover was prone to retreat when confronted and King probably calculated that Hoover wasn’t going to expose himself by publicly releasing a tape that could only have come from the FBI vault.

    On the other hand, what King did have to put up with was Hoover discrediting King privately among the power elite with what those who knew the mens’ voices said was a genuine tape of King and close associates in what sounded very like a homosexual orgy.

  13. @Daniel Chieh

    I don’t think there ever was a hero, ever, in all of history. the true heroes probably died on the very first step on the road to become a hero.

  14. JackOH 说:

    Thanks to Peter Lee and commenters. My hunch is that MLK Jr. promoted, or represented, solutions to problems that were localized in the South, and, yep, northern White ethnics were conned into thinking their natural wariness of Black behaviors, culture, and so on meant they were akin to the Southern cracker stereotype. Those ethnics knew they weren’t Southern crackers, but politics–essentially federal intervention that pre-empted local autonomy–didn’t allow them a “developmental/evolutionary/gradualist” alternative. They just skedaddled to the ‘burbs at a terrific cost.

    The Russians have admitted that Alger Hiss spied for the Soviet Union all during the FDR and early Truman administrations.

    So did most of the FDR administration.
