To Theodore Pappa's credit, he further identified that King's 'Letter from a Birmingham Jail'; the 'I Have A Dream Speech'; and his Nobel Prize lecture, also "contained significant portions taken from other sources." Yet a liberal committee investigating the plagiarism determined in a September 1991 report "because King plagiarized only 45 percent of the first half of his dissertation and only 21 percent of the second, the thesis remains a legitimate and 'intelligent contribution to scholarship' about which 'no thought should be given to the revocation of Dr. King's doctoral degree'".(p.103) The tortured reasoning is all too obvious. But the question is Why? To Theodore Pappas's discredit, he did not delve on Martin Luther King's adultery, his preference for white prostitutes, his close association with members of the American Communist Party, or his long history as a scofflaw, e.g. Martin Luther was not his legal name, it was Michael! Mike King continued his scofflaw career as a willing dupe for the political left, as he broke laws down South, ended up in Birmingham jail for his crimes, and encouraged others to do the same. Even the late, great Louise Day Hicks of South Boston told Martin Luther King that he was no representative of the American Negro! But in defense of Mike King, his wanton misappropriation of another man's work could have stemmed from homosexuality and other "human failings" throughout his career, which would make him irrational rather than criminal. And its only fair to Mike King that most of his speeches were written for him by his left-wing entourage. Though Mike King was never a member of the Communist Party, he cooperated with them fully as a willing dupe for the division of America along racial lines (read the Verona decrypts!).
