dairyqueenlatifah Literally no one calls Cspan at 4AM other than nutty paranoid tinfoil hatters who sleep during the day.
The last guy was a stormfag. I remember years ago, on PoeRED, seeing their MLK sub-site and its contents read damn near verbatim what he was rambling off.
MLK's contributions to civil rights, his approach to peaceful protests and breaking down barriers via the American civic process through mutual understanding deserve nothing but endless praise. Ironically, the people who forget he was human, and put him upon a holy pedestal and grant him some deity-like status now are the same people who are making him roll in his grave right now, because they're doing everything completely antithetical to his message as if they never listened to or read a damn word he said.
You can by all means debate whether you think we as a nation are better off in a post-MLK world than we were in a pre-MLK world, but a platform to pay homage to him and his legacy really isn't the place to get up on your soap box to bitch about modern racial issues.
Nominal Nothing pisses me of more than some upper middle class slacktivist kid claiming that his "The Other America" speech was an endorsement of violent protest.
Maggot Brain If they shot Sailor Moon you're damn right I'm burning down the town. Now I'm not saying MLK is fictional but I've never seen the proof that he isn't!
