    He will condemn both sides of politicians of taking millions of donation from AIPAC and ignoring the genocide in Gaza and apartheid in West Bank

    He didn’t die for you to curse like a sailor, and speak Ebonics

    Why can’t you speak like the character in which he spoke about?

    Dr. Martin Luther King would not be proud of either of these black women😊

    Did not mean to put the happy face logo there. I am very disappointed in the way many entertainers carry themselves today it is a disgrace. It is an affront to Martin Luther King and all the other civil rights activist that fought and died for our liberation and dignity

    It makes me sad that people don’t know the “that a man will not be judged by the color of his skin, but the content of his character.”

    Folks don’t know that’s why the CIA assassinated King. Once he started moving from black empowerment to fighting poverty and pulling people together. He became too powerful. A “ black messiah” as they called him and was deemed too dangerous. So let’s not forget the same folks that quote him today green lit his assassination.

    I quote from MLK I learned today. “Even if tomorrow was the end of the world, i would plant a tree today.” Something like that

    What would Dr. King think of the vile racism of victimhood and lowered expectations?

    “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” – Martin Luther King

    MLK would definitely be flipping in his grave if he saw the “content of today’s culture’s character” People don’t realize your character can also open doors and not just the color of your skin tone.

    Having lived most of my childhood far from the US and arrived in the states before 2000, I did not get the impression for even one second that Black Americans were or are treated, represented, considered, as equals in how systems have been and generally continue to be structured or how white people talk about non-whites. This country is as racist and colorist as pretty much the worst anywhere, but it’s even more frustrating to be here because there’s an all out war against those who acknowledge this truth.
