Martin Luther King Isn’t Interested in Your Praise!
Reader this is something to think about. Today is Martin Luther King day and almost every major American city has an MLK boulevard -- and an address there has become almost synonymous with poverty and crime. How did that happen, and can it change?
"[King] would know that in a country where black lives still do not seem to matter to most of us, where millions of African Americans are imprisoned or branded as felons, that any celebration of civil rights victory is premature. If King were here to celebrate his holiday with us, he would ask us to show him justice, not statues; changed hearts, not new names on freeways."Martin Luther King Isn’t Interested in Your Praise
