If anyone had a right to question whether our democracy was worth redeeming, it was Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Because in the face of billy clubs and lynchings, poll taxes and literacy tests, he never gave in to violence, never waved a traitorous flag or gave up on our country. pic.twitter.com/TCmbuiXkUa
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr was assassinated and had a 75% disapproval rating. It's easy to say that a majority of people today would hate him if he were still alive. Many today think that just quoting him absolves them from their adherence to Neoliberalism/Neo-conservatism.
