MLK was a true hero who sought rigtheous change without violence. Had he lived it would be a better country. Those who have come after him have exploited his work and words for political and venal financial gain. Who do you think has the best job chances a white or black college grad? If you say white you don't live in the real world. The white grad will be saddled with 30 yrs of student loans, the black grad will have the advantage of myriad free grants. Blacks can compete in the classroom and in the workplace and many do, but many others choose to not bother prefereing to live on the benefit programs, checks and hamster cage like public housing areas. No one makes a black family live in a project or in one place, it seems a choice. Racism is perpetuated by politicans like Obama who rule through division and love it. In my entire life I have never heard a white person use the n-word but I have been called racist names hundreds of times in public transit, the Army, everywhere.
