One of the reasons I started debating racists on the internet was due to a website titled "The Truth about MLK" in which salacious accusations were posted about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. suggesting among other things that he was a communist sympathizer and a sexual degenerate. As I recall one article was titled "The Beast as Saint" and claimed that an anonymous FBI agent discovered through wiretaps that Dr. King liked engaging in sex parties with White prostitutes and that the night before he was killed King was having sex with Russian prostitutes and could be heard screaming "I'm not a Negro tonight" and "I'm f*cking for God!" while beating one of the prostitutes. I have addressed these allegations before which qualify as character assassination and as the CNN video above states are unsubstantiated. The website Snopes.com which specializes in debunking Urban Legends have addressed some of these claims. https://www.snopes.com/history/american/mlking.asp Claims of sexual degeneracy are very popular in politics and some sex scandals have been proven to be true which has ruined the careers or public image of many politicians. The Monica Lewinsky scandal surrounding Bill Clinton is a good example. Our current President Donald Trump has been accused by many women of sexual harassment, molestation and even rape after being discovered on a hot mic admitting to getting away with being inappropriate with women. Even Barack Obama was accused of sexual degeneracy mainly by a gay man who claimed he gave Obama a blow job in the back of a limo while he smoked crack and suggested that he killed off gay lovers in his church to cover up his sexual orientation. That man turned out to be a deranged nutcase with a criminal record involving crimes of a deceptive nature but they ended up in the tabloids and many others latched on to them including a Youtuber who claimed that Obama had a sexual affair with Rev. Wright! I find the King allegations to be highly improbable, ridiculous and a blatant attempt to ruin his reputation. I don't put it past anyone to be unfaithful to their spouses and since I don't know King's sex history I can't say that he never cheated on his wife. But having drunken sex parties with White prostitutes while beating them and making self-hating, racist and blasphemous comments sounds like a total fabrication. If this really happened the FBI could have easily had King arrested for assault. Instead they sent tapes and documents to his wife with a letter suggesting that he commit suicide before this information was released. That didn't work and shortly after that King was assassinated. I personally feel that if such allegations are true and there is solid evidence supporting the claim then it is ok to discuss them but if they are lies making up stories to destroy someone's reputation is a horrible thing to do. Until they provide concrete evidence that any of these claims about Dr. King are true I will not consider such claims a reflection on his character.
