Remembering MLK Jr.

Posted by: Jason Tate (01/16/12)
One of my favorite quotes: "History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people." - Martin Luther King Jr.

If you haven't seen the episode of The Boondocks where MLK JR is still alive and sees how the African-American culture is today, you totally should.

Why not? I think its rather fitting. MLK's work is a big part of why he has the ability to hold the highest governmental office.

I guess so. And besides, Obama's photo is just the default for political news feeds, if I'm not mistaken

Because every "political" post uses the same tag icon. And it's been the current US president for at least 13 years now.

Fair enough, I just wouldn't have thought that this was necessarily political.
