Thirdpower hits it right on the head with this:
I think MLK would be more concerned w/ why inner city students have a 51.8% graduation rate. 90% Black on Black crime rates, the advocation and glorification of violence, and his former followers (Jackson and Sharpton) using racism and his legacy to enrich themselves and keep themselves in the public eye.
He also points out that MLK applied for, and was denied, a concealed carry permit under Alabama’s rather racist at-the-time gun laws.
