Too bad Martin Luther King wasn't his legal name. He did say some wise things sometimes not first said by others. He actually started more riots after he was shot. He was a Marxist, rabble-rouser and all-around cheater but you won't learn that in the public schools anymore. Like Kenyan-born Obama, and Hitler's nephew Mandela, MLK was a Prince Hall Mason.<quoted text>
Martin Luther King was, still is, a giant of a man. What he did for racial equality is unprecedented, his example followed all over the world, notably in South Africa. Yet, all you have to say about him today, on HIS day, is that streets named after him are run-down, derelict etc. You are of course, as usual, wearing your racist blinders, not knowing, supposedly, that his name was given to streets often located in black ghettos where the inhabitants are not exactly "The Hamptons" high society. You seem to ignore that King did not represent the rich elite, the 1% that you worship, though you'll never be one of them. And as long as there are people like you, Martin Luther King streets will endure in their run-down and derelict states, as you prefer to spend $700 billion a year on useless armaments instead of improving schools, public housing, education in general, social programmes and promoting reasonably-priced university tuition.
We celebrated MLK's death today with fried chicken and fruit punch soda.
