It would be wise for anyone to examine who MLK's compatriots and hero's were. He was an admirer of Mao Tse Tung and a disciple of the Highlander Folk School in Monteagle, Tennessee, which was a training ground for social descent and was founded by the communist Myles Norton and supported by the liberal theologian Reinhold Niebuhr. Rose Parks was one of the disciples. Contrast this with Booker T. Washington, an advocate of self-reliance, a pure conservative who warned all blacks never to accept anything from the government, the leader of the Christian evangelical movement to Africa to try to lead the voodoo-entrenched African blacks out of witchcraft and into Christianity and and prosperity. He was one of the greatest men who ever lived.
