Alveda King is an American conservative activist and author. She is the niece of Martin Luther King, Jr., a fact which she and her supporters treat like a credential, and might be described as a female Alan Keyes, in that she has a habit of sticking her foot in her mouth and then trying to justify it by citing the circumstances of her birth.
 Political views
King seems to like labelling anything she morally opposes "genocide." She is active in the pro-life movement, and has referred to abortion as "genocide," due to the fact that African-American women have a higher per capita abortion rate than white women (which is more likely the outcome of economic disparity, not some kind of racist conspiracy).
“”"It is statistically proven that the strongest institution that guarantees procreation and continuity of the generations is marriage between one man and one woman. I don't know about you, but I'm not ready to be extinct. And none of us wants to be. So we don't want genocide. We don't want to destroy the sacred institution of marriage."
King did not clarify her apparent assertation that legalizing same-sex marriage in the US would cause a Children of Men-style infertility pandemic and eventual human extinction.
 Civil rights
King has claimed that her uncle was a Republican. However, according to David Garrow, a civil rights historian and the author of a Pulitzer Prize-winning MLK biography, "King was not only not a Republican, he was well to the left of the Democratic Party of the 1960s."
King views the pro-life movement as a "continuation of the civil rights struggle." In 2010, she was involved in Pro-life Freedom Rides, an event which began with a protest at a Birmingham, Alabama abortion clinic and ended with a "pro-life service" at MLK's grave, and drew its name from the 1961 protests against segregation in the American South.
“”Homosexuality cannot be elevated to the civil rights issue. The civil rights movement was born from the Bible. God hates homosexuality.
King once expressed the hope "that white privilege will become human privilege and that America will soon repent of the sin of racism," which would have been entirely reasonable if it hadn't been done during the speech she gave to an audience of Tea Party race-baiters at Glenn Beck's Restoring Honor Rally on August 28, 2010.
