The MLK that’s never quoted.

and it’s no accident that this segment is conveniently left out of our education

The white-washing of MLK jr. and the civil rights movement on a whole to make history look kindly upon white folk and convince POC of the disempowering lie that is “Be polite, nice, & don’t challenge us & you’ll get your rights” is one that disgusts me to no end.

The tag saying how if MLK was really pandering to whitey that he wouldn’t have been assassinated. So true.
