before i start i want to you to know im not a hater and im not a racist if it weren't for king i wouldnt have the same rights as everyone else or
probably even be here. Martin luther king. is the only american to be honoured by an annual US national holiday held in his name every year. He's
known as a national hero and icon of freedom and justice, and its been growing ever since his death. Given how elements of the FBI tried to destroy
and discredit king while he was alive, there is a natural assumption that any negative accusations about him must be fake. However, behind this heroic
icon many people beleave that he has two if not more dark secrets in his life, that many still deny to this very day. since the FBI was afraid that
MLK was a communist, wiretaps were made on him. While J. edgar hoover after hundreds of hours of surveillance could not prove king was a red, they
provide ample evidence that he was a serial womanizer and that he regularly used money coming in to his civil rights organization to hire prostitutes.
a journalist named carl rowen described how hoover played a tape they had when they were wiretapping him of king and his close friend ralph albernathy
holding a sex party in a hotel to a congressional comitee. in the tape mlk could be heard having sex with two women and making comments like "im #ing
for god!". in 1990 reasearcher theodore pappas discovered that MLK had plagiarized more than a third of his docteral thesis from the work of an
earlier student. king had even repeated the students errors. the plagerism continued after he had been falsely awarded his docterate many of his
famous civil rights speeches and papers were heavily plagerized and the rousing end of his "i have a dream" speech was stolen directly from a 1950s
speechmade by a black preacher named archibald carey. but i bealeave the biggest truth anout him is that he preached racial equality, tolerance,
endurance, and peace in a time of massive injustice, extreme hatred and violence. no plagerism or predilection for prostitutes can deny the reality
that voice and resistance to prejudice helped bring about the landmark civil reoghts, legislation that america still benifits from to this very day.
