Martin luthr king jr is famous for uttering the golden words "i have a dream" in his memorable speech. Martin Luther king should have also said this in every speech: I guess he did not as he will lose his status as a leader of the poor american Blacks: "I have a Rolex gold wrist watch, and that my brothers has a price tag of over $million" Where does he get so much money? He is fighting for the oppressed poor in AMerica. Gift! So I guess it pays to be a leader. I don't know what watch Nelson MAndela is wearing. ButI do know now the million dollar watches the so called politicians on modest salary are wearing. These guys are in politics because for all these luxury goods. Only the immorals get selected for this fake leadership role by their shadow bosses. Who these Bosses are we all know are in CIA, State department, Saudi royal family and Her Majesty. Then you have their ever protective 'watch dogs; the FBI's the most despicable unit run by abominable humans with no shame in telling lies. This group definitely owns AMerica. million dollar per piece wrist Watches of other so called leaders: Tag HEUER :Barrack Husein Mobama Cartier JFK PANERAI: Bill CLinton All these watches have dollar million price tags. so these 'free for leaders' of the free world obviously are wearing a couple of these selected models brands. one for each day of the week, if not for each day of the year like Imelda macros the dacoit leaders of Philippines. Therefore discussion of Kings rights activism has no meaning. .
