Houston-based PAC Raging Elephants is encouraging minorities in South Dallas to vote Republican.

Some observers, like Michael Sorrell, president of HBCU Paul Quinn College in Dallas, say the billboard on Martin Luther King, Jr. Bouelvard amounts to race-baiting.

Other observers, like Letter to the Editor writer Ronald Griffey of Farmers Branch, point out that the Republican Party, just like the Democratic Party, was a whole ‘nother animal in MLK’s day.

Martin Luther King III has said the point is moot, since his father wasn’t affiliated with the GOP or any political party.
