VIDEO: Coretta Scott King Thanks Jeff Sessions for Rosa Parks Library
On Tuesday night Senator Elizabeth Warren was barred from speaking because of continuous attacks she made toward Senator Jeff Sessions. Elizabeth Warren claims she was silenced because of a letter from 1986 from Coretta Scott King. The letter was written by Coretta Scott King in 1986. However, four years later in 2000 Coretta Scott King is on video thanking Senator Jeff Sessions for his work in helping to create the Rosa Parks Library.
Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., however, said Senator Warren is using the King name to play the race card and stir up emotions.
“In that letter [Coretta Scott King] would be referring to some of [Sen. Jeff Sessions] comments,” King told the FOX Business Network’s Neil Cavuto. “However, she would agree today that he of course ended some [school segregation and] he worked to prosecute members of the KKK.”
King added: “It’s almost like a bait and switch, stir up the emotions, in the name of King—and my name is Alveda King… [and] play the race card, which she was attempting to do.” –source
