    King family seeks to cash in on MLK-Obama items
    By ERRIN HAINES – 17 hours ago

    ATLANTA (AP) — Zealous guardians of his words and his likeness, the family of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. is demanding a share of the proceeds from the sudden wave of T-shirts, posters and other merchandise depicting the civil rights leader alongside Barack Obama.

    Isaac Newton Farris Jr., King's nephew and head of the nonprofit King Center in Atlanta, said the estate is entitled to hundreds of thousands of dollars in licensing fees — maybe even millions.

    I'm sure they will share the wealth with those that Martin Luther King gave his life to help. Gosh, I can't think of one black millionaire who didn't use his wealth to help the black community, can you?

    of course he wont, he only shares the wealth when we are talking about YOUR money.

    He would not even help other dems in need of money during the election and he had far more than he needed.

    Yeah - remember the Botking and Biden's tax returns both showed a paltry contribution to charity, whereas the McCains gave 30%? "Sharing" in lib terminology always means they stick their hands your pockets and distribute money to their political constituencies.
