Alveda King to Baltimore mayor:
My dear Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. . . .
Your invitation to "give space for those who want to destroy" is unbelievable. This interpretation of rights to free speech is dangerous ma'am. In 1963, my father Rev. A.D. King, after the firebombing of our home in Birmingham, Ala. urged hostile protestors to abandon violence and turn to God in prayer instead.
Thank God they listened to him, and the even greater voice of his brother, my Uncle Martin Luther King during those turbulent days. Now, you are inviting violence to your city? Who ma'am, will incur the moral and economic costs of picking up the pieces? The innocent taxpayers?
We at restorethedream2015.com
are very concerned. Ma'am, people are
not entitled to pillage and destroy. That is just plain wrong. Our affiliates on the ground in Baltimore are willing to help quell the violent tide. And make no mistake about it, something must be done to save our cities.
How did we get here? Where do we go now? Think about this. Baltimore
1965 versus Baltimore 2015, compare and contrast:
- Money spent on public schools then versus now.
- Amount spent on social welfare payments then versus now.
- The size of government bureaucracy then versus now.
- The number of black elected officials then versus now.
- Number of black children born in Baltimore, born to an intact nuclear family.
- Number of black lives MIA by abortion and incarceration.
If you look at all six questions/comparisons what you will see are the only statistics to have decreased (1965 to 2015) is the number of black children born in intact nuclear families.
Something is wrong. We must stop the killing and advance the healing now!
