Leave it to the Heritage Foundation

Morning Bell: Frederick Douglass’s Irrepressible Faith in America | The Foundry: Conservative Policy News.:

"While Dr. King reminded us that the country was built on the “promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” leading voices today instead reject the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution as racist documents and turn away from the traditional goal of integration. If America is built on a foundation of racist ideas, then no real change is possible within the existing conditions, and the solution to the African-American predicament must lie beyond the country as we know it. America must be fundamentally transformed if the promise of justice for all is to be realized."

Leading voices? Do these people live in the same country as you and I? There are no "leading voices" saying any such thing. I defy anyone to give me examples of real leaders, not cranks, doing anything like turning away from integration.
