Martin Luther King Jr. Socialism for the Rich

Martin Luther King Jr. Socialism for the Rich

“Whenever the government provides opportunities and privileges for white people and rich people they call it ‘subsidies.’ When they do it for Negro and poor people they call it ‘welfare.’ The fact is that everybody in this country lives on welfare. Suburbia was built with federally subsidized credit. And highways that take our white brothers out to the suburbs were built with federally subsidized money to the tune of ninety percent. Everybody is on welfare in this country. The problem is that we all too often have socialism for the rich and rugged free enterprise capitalism for the poor. That’s the problem.” Martin Luther King Jr.

  1. Well said, by MLK and Tom W. Every so often, people need to be reminded and the hypocrites denounced.
