Wouldn`t the Rev. KING be proud .
What ??? no photos ?
I remember as a teenager when MLK was shot. I never actually thought he was anything special then, but I was just a dumbass teenager too.
While his personal life and true political convictions may or still may not be clear, his publicized reputation for non-violent protest as a means to change social perception and established law has meant something for this country.
However, it is a true shame that the leftover friends, colleagues and aspirants of his era since then have perverted the perceived message of non-violence. Perverted to extortion in many cases ala Jesse Jackson and corporate America.
Almost every town and city in America now has a street named for him: MLK Blvd, MLK Avenue, etc. Most having been largely cajoled/shamed on town and city officials as a concession to black constituents to honor him, the resulting legacy of this honor is to alert white people of areas from which to avoid at all costs. A sad legacy, indeed.
