“Call it democracy, or call it democratic socialism, but there must be a better distribution of wealth within this country for all God’s children.” — Martin Luther King Jr.
“If America does not use her vast resources of wealth to end poverty and make it possible for all of God’s children to have the basic necessities of life, she too will go to hell.” — Martin Luther King Jr.
“We must recognize that we can’t solve our problem now until there is a radical redistribution of economic and political power… this means a revolution of values and other things. We must see now that the evils of racism, economic exploitation and militarism are all tied together… you can’t really get rid of one without getting rid of the others… the whole structure of American life must be changed. America is a hypocritical nation and [we] must put [our] own house in order.” — Martin Luther King Jr.
MLK was a socialist who was further left than Bernie Sanders. Which is why I find it completely disingenuous when you guys try to hold him up as some kind of ideal to chastise the current civil rights movement.
If he was alive you and others would be right here calling him a traitor and a terrorist the second Donald Trump tweeted about how big of a troublemaker he is.

..and knew how to bring about change.
Pffft. Is that why the National Guard needed to be called in, during the '60 Civil Rights efforts, because everyone was acting so peacefully? Is that why so many Black folks, like John Lewis, got their heads cracked, courtesy of police batons, on the bridge in Selma?
