MLK Event Excluded Conservative Key Organizer of ’63 March

No conservatives allowed. They want to keep people dependent on government.

A conservative group which helped organize the famous March on Washington says it was left out of the seminal civil rights event’s 50th anniversary celebration held Wednesday.

The Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) was one of the six big organizing groups who coordinated the 1963 March on Washington 50 years ago. However, CORE says none of the event organizers at this year’s remembrance of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech invited anyone from the black conservative organization, particularly CORE’s chairman and ’63 March on Washington alum Roy Innis (pictured), to speak.

Senator Tim Scott (R-SC), one of two black members in the upper chamber and the first black senator from his state since reconstruction, was not invited to speak at the event. The Republican Party says invitations for GOP leadership to speak came in too late.
