Re: August 28, 1963

Oh thank you for sharing this. This is my favourite MLK Jr. speech. He was an incredible, courageous man.

That said, he's spinning in his grave over the atrocities in Missouri and whatnot.

And he can keep spinnin too cuz that started as excessive force/ police brutality, and got woven into a race debate by the media. If it was a white dude shot by a black cop. We would have already forgotten about it

Re: August 28, 1963

MLK jr. was amazing. He knew it should have nothing to do with race and that people should judge others by their character, not skin color!
Why is this so hard for people to get? When I see people rioting and burning down their own businesses and stealing, I judge them on their character, not race. He would be so ashamed to see how African Americans act now.

Because after MLK, the black community lacked someone with his mindset for a civil rights leader. Instead, the likes of the sharptons, and jackson jumped in to gain hold of a community lost, and needing some kind of direction.

Re: August 28, 1963

I think had he lived, when a black man had an issue with civil rights and wanted to voice it, he would have done so in a suit and tie.

It was the type that came there after his demise, sporting the African wear, demanding a separated, but recognized culture that for most part was to represent being "less white". That was the influences of the black community for the past 50 years. Each generation just developed the mentality that social standards were too "white" and the rest of the world should accept the "Lil Waynes" to be, because the white man took their social identity away.

MLK preached for his people to be accepted into the "white's social" standards, not be separated, and creating one of their own.
