One of the core teachings of Martin Luther King Jr. was to judge the content of one’s character instead of their skin color.
But leftists have completely ignored this principle in recent years by making race and skin color a leading factor in their policies and judgements.
And Jaws hit the floor after this infamous mayor delivered a divisive MLK day address.
Boston mayor Michelle Wu has earned a reputation as one of America’s most divisive mayors
Rather than bringing people from all races together, many on the Left have made it their top priority to segregate along racial lines whenever possible.
For example, Boston mayor Michelle Wu made international headlines after hosting a non-descript “Holiday party” last December, which only welcomed so-called “people of color.”
Critics claimed that such an event only serves to further divide the community, and perpetuated what many viewed as modern segregation.
Last Monday, Michelle Wu addressed these critics while speaking at the annual Martin Luther King Jr. memorial breakfast at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center.
Wu defended her actions, claiming that “I am tired of those fearmongers and mob baiters who fan the flames and call for unity,” referring to her segregated holiday party.
She added, “Viral outrage ricocheted internationally, as those who had never before cared about representation railed against this as exclusionary.”
On Tuesday, Wu was asked to clarify these comments on Boston Public Radio, where she claimed “This is broader than government and politics. It’s connected to what we see happening in universities and academia, but it’s connected to lots of examples all across the business sector and in peoples’ daily lives, where there is a push to say ‘the way to not be divisive is in fact to never talk about race, to never bring up programs that should be specifically trying to address disparities, and essentially to pretend that any mention of racial inequities is dividing people further.’”
Wu has since received significant backlash for these comments, which many people believe directly goes against everything that the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. preached and stood for.
Since hosting her segregated holiday party in December, Wu has not acknowledged the validity of the claims by her critics, and has defended her controversial actions every step of the way.
Michelle Wu represents the racially motivated anger that exists on the radical left
Although Wu’s actions seem shocking to most Americans, the truth is that her actions fall in line with the teaching of the modern Left in America.
Segregation has become a new woke cause, with many universities establishing segregated dorms, and study areas, devoid of “white oppression” as they call it.
The NFL has even dabbled in such racial division, sanctioning the singing of a black national anthem before the national anthem at football games.
Segregation has come in vogue for the American Left, which goes against everything that Martin Luther King Jr. preached.
