Star Parker, founder and president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, recently appeared on C-SPAN to discuss the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Star wrote about Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech in a recent column. She said on C-SPAN that Dr. King’s message is different than what we’re hearing today. He didn’t try to overturn any eternal truths. He appealed to the founding principles and called the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution magnificent. He wanted Americans of all colors to work together.
She also shared her opinion on the so-called voting rights bill in Congress: “I think it’s dead, and I think that it is totally offensive…” Star said that now, after failed policies over the last year that include the botched Afghanistan withdrawal, the Build Back Better Act, COVID-19, and inflation, Democrats are going to focus on racial matters. We don’t need more legislation, she added. This country has a process for Americans to redress grievances. The national voting rights bill will overhaul what locals are trying to do to protect election integrity.
On the filibuster, Star said it’s important. We already have majority rules in the House and the courts, and a majority of one in the White House. “The Senate is the only place that the minority has a voice. We don’t want that to end.”
Then it was time for callers to ask Star questions that ranged from tearing down statues to racial profiling. If you want to know what Star Parker is all about, watch this segment.
