Martin Luther King’s niece Alveda King is furious that Elizabeth Warren used her Aunt Coretta Scott King’s letter to attack Jeff Sessions and call him a racist.
“If we take a look at my Aunt Coretta Scott King’s letter, we know that she was a peace maker. Her intentions were never to divide during her whole life.
I was her communications and correspondence secretary for several years when I was a young women,” explained Alveda.
“In that letter, she would be referring to perhaps some of [Jeff Sessions] comments, however, she would agree today that he of course ended some school segregation, he worked to prosecute members of the KKK.
Aunt Coretta was a very reasonable women and she, with integrity, would have noted that he had done some great work in fighting against discrimination,” explained Alveda.
“She had very strong opinions and concern for all Americans and perhaps people all of the world and I believe certainly that if she could look at the record of Senator Sessions today, with integrity, she would say ‘well he has worked to prosecute the Ku Klux Klan, he has worked to desegregate public schools,’ so it’s almost like a bait and switch, stir up their emotions, use the name King, and my name is Alveda King, play the race card,” she explained.
“It is not dividing my family at all, we are taking a look at many things Ms. Coretta Scott King said, Martin Luther King Jr said, my dad Reverend A.D. King, but my family, we are peace makers, we bring people together Neil, we do not divide people,” King said. Check out the video below.
