You got that right. It’s why we miss out on post 1965/66 MLK speeches.
MLK was a socialist bent on weath redistribution and reparations for discrimination and slavery. The fact he allegedly was a Republican is no matter. Most of the German officers in Lincoln’s army were Republicans and also communists who were deported from Germany for their political “activities”.
“Red Republicans” is even a book, and nothing new if you just listen to five of the remaining Presidential candidates.
Yeah, because capitalism and justice were working sooooo well for Black people back in that time.
