    I suspect he would be seriously pissed at the fools who insist on 'claiming' him for their side of the political fence. He clearly was not overly impressed with either party. And nor am I.

    The man spend a good part of his life fighting for an equal education for all. So to honor him, we close the schools. Hmm, a lesson in irony I guess.

    I suspect he would have realize that whites weren't worth dealing with, would have abandoned non-violence and called for the mass killings of white Americans.

    nope, MLK would look at things and wonder wtf are we doing giving all these benfits to his people. While looking in disgust at his people whining about racism for stupid little patheic reasons.

    He sure as hell would not be thrilled with you. Once of his major influences was Gandhi. And you and I both know you're a racist fool.

    I kinda think he'd be seriously, seriously pissed at the DNC for their destruction of 'his people'.
