Martin Luther King.

http://www.summit.mccsc.edu/mlk2k6/Martin%20Luther%20King%20Jr.%20Pic.jpg

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a man born on January 15, 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia. He was a Baptist minister and political activist who was the most famous leader of the American civil rights movement. He won the Nobel Peace Prize and Presidential Medal of Freedom before being assassinated in 1968. For his promotion of non-violence and racial equality, he is considered a peacemaker by many people around the world. Martin Luther King Day was made in his honor. He graduated from Morehouse College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology in 1948. At Morehouse, he was mentored by President Benjamin Mays, a civil rights leader. Later he graduated from Crozer Theological Seminary (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crozer_Theological_Seminary) in Chester, Pennsylvania (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chester,_Pennsylvania) with a Bachelor of Divinity (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bachelor_of_Divinity) degree in 1951. He received his Ph.D. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doctor_of_Philosophy) in Systematic Theology (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Systematic_Theology) from Boston University (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boston_University) in 1955. He was assassinated on April 4, 1968, at 6:01 PM, on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memphis,_Tennessee), Tennessee (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tennessee), while preparing to lead a local march in support of the heavily black Memphis sanitation workers' union which was on strike at the time. Friends inside the motel room heard the shot fired and ran to the balcony to find King shot in the throat. He was pronounced dead at St. Joseph's hospital at 7:05 PM . The assassination led to a nationwide wave of riots (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_racial_violence_in_the_United_States) in more than 60 cities. Four days later, President Lyndon Johnson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lyndon_Johnson) declared a national day of mourning for the lost civil rights leader. A crowd of 300,000 attended his funeral that same day.
















i think its pretty poetic how obama's inag. is 1 day after MLK day.

black history month is gonna have a tough act to follow with the january.

you have a hard time dealing with white guilt and your own shortcomings in life.
I know you're going to take this as an insult because whatever, but I know what im talking about as do you, and so long as you do that's all that matters. I dont want you ruining my thread as it is disrespectful to yourself and to the dead. Your a very concerned person with an inclination to believe practicalness, rigidness, and realism is cool even though its not your true nature and you use this part of your ego to envelope the real you. Instead of dealing with it you often make excuses for it and try to accept it as a 'take it or leave it' part of your personality and world outlook when in true its not. Your very liberal, very concerned, and very caring and open minded and i don't know why this part of your ego is in conflict with your true nature. My guess is you had a father that was this way, or so it appears to you, or its a superficial shell you created to guard the tenderness of your concerns with a world you feel is unjust.



I don't want you to disrespect this day or yourself and if you feel remembering the greatest american of all time, and one of the most influential people to ever live who died in the name of something greater then himself is somehow forced on you, which it's not. You saw on a website of over 100,000 threads, one about something you felt was forced on you, entered it and forced it on yourself. You can also force yourself to not click on it and not read it.

yeah i see the difference cause they're 2 different humans but idk why you would look down on one and up to another if that one you look down on is the actualization of what the other died for.

nice attempt and i appreciate your concern but sometimes i just like being an asshole. Especially in KTL.

that's the thing, you're not an asshole, your a liberal and for some reason don't think it's the way you 'should be'

that where your incorrect. I'm not a liberal. I don't take sides cuz I think its pointless when you agree with both, nor do I think you have to take sides.

people like food for thought sicken me just as much as some gun-toting Bush stan.

I'm merely the voice of reason trying to navigate my way around these two lunatic groups.

Now if you can't respect that, your whole perspective is wack.
