Alveda King: Obama Proves Skin-Color Voting Doesn't Help Blacks

Alveda King, niece of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., is at sharp odds with the Rev. Al Sharpton about which political view can most help African-Americans, and she has never shied from saying President Barack Obama hasn't helped the black community.
Both her uncle and her father, the Rev. A.D. King, whom she described as independents, favored seeing people educated about the parties, and thought that if they were they wouldn't vote so overwhelmingly Democratic, she said Tuesday on Fox Business Network's "Cavuto."

"People have not really been educated – do not understand – that voting for the color of someone's skin has not repaired the problems," Alveda King said.

She is attempting to take care of some of the education through her website Restorethedream2014.com.

Holding up the November issue of Newsmax magazine with Sharpton on the cover, she called the MSNBC host "another comedy of errors anointed by President Obama. God has anointed Jesus of Nazareth, not Al Sharpton."

King said she likes about 10 Republicans, but wouldn't be specific other than to mention retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul. Both are thought to be considering possible 2016 presidential bids. 

When host Neil Cavuto asked her opinon of Hillary Clinton, the expected Democratic frontrunner, King replied, "She needs to stay home and pray real hard."
