    it's a borderline impossible situation, wouldn't you agree? it's not because they're black, it's because what POOR black culture idolizes and aspires to be. you got 1) PRO ATHLETE or 2) RAPPER
    Spoken like someones who only exposure to poor neighborhoods is from 'I'm totally a black guy and not making stuff up' on the Internet.

    A smart kid doesn't get picked in the ghetto more than any other neighborhood apart from childhood bullying you'd see anywhere. If anything they are left alone, the risk not having any friends because 'they aren't cool' more than being bullied. Its like people think black people don't value education...open a book, read a research paper, instead of slobbering over a bunch of stereotyping bullshit.

    Since the bright minds of this forum can't separate hip-hop culture from black culture. you do know that neither one look down the things you listed?

    I know there's a lot of ignorance around here but this lowering the bar.

    It is very true about people though, we build up idols, then expect them to be suddenly a paragon of virtue. I always get reminded of that Simpsons episode regarding Jebediah Springfield regarding this kind of thing. Sometimes the image of the person is better than the actual reality.


    Also, people still "REEEEEEEEEEEEing" about said source and why no others have picked it up? (You know who I mean), well, today in the EU is European Parliament election day, so the media is very focused on that here, UK has the UK Party race and Brexit fall-out as a major story, and here in Belgium, we have national elections.
    Other countries do have other things going on, and most New outlets are very limited in how many people they can put on a story, so they go with what is popular/sells copy. These things are very important to Europeans atm, hence why we couldn't mainly give a fuck about MLK.
    Combine that with a potential WH "Hold off on reporting till we see the evidence" blackout, and it makes sense why it isn't covered everywhere. Were it a slow news day, you bet your ass it would be.
    I really don’t think you get how the news works if this thing had even a Sheered of credibility it would be every where the White House wouldn’t be able to black it out.

    Yeah, I'm not going to take the FBI's word on this, given their history with MLK.

    If true, does it deter from the man and his actions?

    I don't know, would you build your government upon writings of a person who enslaves and rapes people?

    Oh sorry, stupid question.

    Nonsense. They ask for media to hold on a story all the time until details can be confirmed. Happens in all countries. If you think otherwise, you are beyond naive, sure they can break it, but they they lose the risk of getting invited to White House sources and stuff, and they probably weigh up that this is worth far less, than a story down the line.

    Also, perhaps, just perhaps, USA has bigger stories to worry about right now, than just adding fuel to the fire of someone who has been dead for generations already? I know EU does.

    Lastly, why do people keep breeching "credibility"? The guy is a Pulitzer prize winning journalist, and one of the most respected in his field, that of MLK himself. He hasn't written a story, he has just done a book reveal, and some reporters are picking up on it. To claim a lack of credibility is not only churlish, but childish also. They guy has absolutely no reason to lie as it would do him FAR more harm than a few increased book sales would remove.

    Arguing that one of the most respected people in his field is "a dubious source" is hilarious and also sad. If anything it is more a spin being put on it by Right Wing sites, rather than the actual story being inaccurate (The story being he heard tapes of some FBI guys saying they heard him laughing). Now whilst the source may not be the best, don't diss the guy behind it.

    Now here is where you insert *nu uh journalism!* or whatever nonsense, and we go on and on and on. No going to bother anymore.

    The affairs part has been rumor for years, but if the other stuff is true boy howdy is this a conundrum.
