If MLK Was Alive, He’d Make White People Just as Uncomfortable as #BlackLivesMatter
Although the outpouring of affection at his funeral may make it seem like he died a widely loved and supported man, the truth is that a lot of his caucasian supporters turned their backs on him when he decided to talk about other issues than voting rights. Most of the favour he curried amongst whites in his earlier years, he lost as he tackled poverty and supported unions. You didn’t love Rev. King then, and you probably wouldn’t love him now either, so please refrain from misapplying his quotes and stop acting like his revolutionary goal in life, what he ultimately died for, was making it easier to be a white man in America.
