I was browsing the web (Google) searching for matches to the query "Mary Neal USDOJ" when I came upon a MySpace site by Dreamer aka Rappstarr (408 & Heartbreak) 4/08 The MC.  He did a blog:  MySpace_OscarGrant_Dreamer_aka....

In his blog, I thank him very much for posting my article about Oscar Grant entitled:

Oscar Grant:  1st Unarmed Black Man Killed by Police in 2009 - Next?
http://my.nowpublic.com/world/oscar-grant-1st-unarmed-black-man-police-killed-2009-next

Dreamer's blog had a different ending to my Oscar Grant article than it should, because I edited the piece after his printing.  I have put the updated ending of that article here.  THE CENSORSHIP AGAINST MLK 40 YEARS AFTER HIS DEATH THE SHOULD NOT GO UNNOTICED.  Online text versions of Dr. King's speech should be corrected, and I am sure the publishers would want it corrected if they knew.

When I saw Dreamer's blog tonight, my computer tried to shut down (my computer is in the control of others).  The Dreamer may have a popular site, and there are those who are against African Americans knowing Dr. King's true words apparently object to my notifying publishers of the needed corrections.  

When I put the information about the needed corrections in my EXPOSED blog on Google, someone tried to have the entire blog listed as spam and shut down.  That is how determined the same people who censor me are to keep Dr. King's online versions of his final speech presented incorrectly to the public.

Martin Luther King, Jr.'s final speech, "I've Been to the Mountaintop," suffers censorship in one of its two most often used quotes.

Dr. King spoke to the people who met in Memphis, Tennessee on April 3, 1968, to hear what turned out to be MLK's last address to the people that he would ever make.  He spoke about the need for courage in their struggle for civil rights and for decent treatment in a country that was their home, but that refused to acknowledge them as full citizens endowed with the same rights as others.

Here is the ending to my article and a link to the document that shows the needed edits to correct online renditions of Dr. King's speech:

*******************************

We hope for positive CHANGE under Mr. Holder as Attorney General, and increased accountability regarding police violence to men of color and to all citizens.  Equal justice is important to everyone, as noted by Rev. Martin Luther King, whose birthday we will soon celebrate.  

This writer was very displeased to learn that Rev. King's final address, "I've been to the Mountaintop" had been fraudulently edited in 18 of the 20 online printed versions of that famous speech, leaving out key phrases having to do with "illegal injunctions" and "dogs and water hoses."  Due to much censorship, it was very hard for me to alert the public that the printed versions of that speech presented by 90% of the online versions, which were presented as being authentic, omitted text.  After publishing news of the misprinted text on December 17 and my article was verified and carried by CLG News, I noted some online publishers were correcting their online text.  I hope this continues and that other of our historic and valued speeches by great Americans will be checked thoroughly to ensure the integrity of the historic record.  Please see the link below:

MLK's Final Speech Fraudulently Edited to Change History
http://my.nowpublic.com/culture/mlks-final-speech-was-fraudulently-edited-change-history

The best way not to have to re-write history as seems to be the case with Rev. King's final speech online - fabricate false accounts of citizen's deaths, or violate the law by falsifying or withholding public records, as happened in my brother's jailhouse death - is to do just as Rev. King admonished in his final public address on April 3, 1968.  Rev. King advised America to "just be true to what you said on paper."

************************************

Right now, children are learning their parts for BLACK HISTORY MONTH PROGRAMS across America, and they are being taught the wrong quote - a horrible fake, not Dr. King's exact words at all.

I ASK AGAIN, WHY IS THERE STILL AN EFFORT TO RE-WRITE BLACK HISTORY IN AMERICA?

WHY WERE DR. KING'S REFERENCES TO AMERICA'S "ILLEGAL INJUNCTIONS" AND HAVING TO FACE "DOGS AND WATER HOSES" DELETED FROM HIS FINAL SPEECH SO OFTEN IN ONLINE PRESENTATIONS OF HIS SPEECH AT A QUOTE THAT IS MOST OFTEN USED AND TAUGHT TO OUR CHILDREN?

I will not stand silently by while Dr. King is mistreated even in death.  He was dogged out in life, assassinated due to prejudice and a desire to silence his message about the common brotherhood of man and the importance of standing up for rights even in the face of opposition from one's government.

Please read the article, see the censorship, and correct all online text presentations of Dr. King's final speech.  I request that every publisher who offers Dr. King's "I've Been to the Mountaintop" address to take a look at the text you published and ensure that it is an accurate rendition of Dr. King's words. 

Some may think Dr. King's speech is misquoted in 90% of the online text versions of his final speech due to some error.  However, I know what happened with my computer when I tried to publish the information.  My computer is already under close watch, you see, due to my family's justice quest regarding the secret incarceration and wrongful death of Larry Neal in Shelby County Jail, Memphis, Tennessee and to curtail our efforts to expose my family's subsequent denial of justice by the USDOJ and others.  CyberStalkers may be hired to curtail information about The Johnnie Cochran Firm FRAUD. (Google it)

I HATE CENSORSHIP.  CENSORSHIP ON THE INTERNET IS EQUAL TO NAZI BOOK BURNING.

I note that my presentation of the information about MLK's speech being censored in this Sharebook was changed to that very faint font that means that either it cannot copy, print, and it may be earmarked for later removal.  See it here and compare the font with other posts - http://www.care2.com/c2c/share/detail/990176

Fredrick Douglas had this to say about the practice of curtailing one's freedom of speech and freedom of press:  "It is just as criminal to rob a man of his right to speak and hear as it would be to rob him of his money."
