Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today we celebrate the birth and works of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  This year it is more important than ever to re-educate ourselves by reading about the works of Dr. King.

Dr. King stood for justice in the face of injustice.  His message is so important because the President of the US is many things from bully to self aggrandize simpleton.  He is also a racist.  He denies being a racist and says “No, I’m not a racist. I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed”.  This would have been almost believable if he hadn’t described those who took part in the Charlottesville white supremacy march, that killed one person, “some very fine people”.

Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’
– Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Republican party led by their halfwit President Trump will be the show today.  Look at us…we love minorities and want to help them all.  Unless of course they are of color or aren’t Christian.  I find this weird because Jesus was of color, poor and a foreigner.  He was probably going to come back like he promised and realized ICE would throw him in detention for being all of those things.

Dr. King believed love and peace were the answer to anger and hate.  He and so many others are also remember today.  People like  Medger Evers, Rosa Parks, and Sojourner Truth.  Medger Evers once said “You can kill a man, but not an idea”.  The idea that we are all created equal has been very hard for whites in America, and particularly in the south, to grasp.  They blame blacks for being the largest group in incarceration.  Interestingly enough they never ask the right question or posit the correct theories.  If more blacks are poor than any other group in America wouldn’t that lead them to be more desperate?

White Supremacy is a ridiculous ideology.  It is the ideology of the weak-minded and uneducated.  Fanatics are stupid whether they are race or religious…they are weak people.  Dr. King fought for justice for minorities of all kinds whether race, religion or gender.  He understood the heart of Jesus and his teachings.  He knew that hate is not productive and is only destructive.  He knew more than President Trump and his band of “white males only” and he died before he could reach the zenith of his work.  Dr. King left a legacy that can’t be tarnished or demoralized.  They can try but in the end….Love will always win and hate and arrogance will destroy themselves because this has always been the case.

“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today I will celebrate Dr. King’s birth and the birth of all of those souls that fought against injustice and continue the fight for the rights of all people.

He was a man of action, a man of thought and deed and a man who had the gift of being able to speak to all people.  He will always be known as the man who made America understand Civil Rights for all people.

We know the story of his life and his death but to his family he was Husband and Father.  They shared him with the world in life, death and grief.  Today I remember his family who lost so much that day in April.  The world lost a leader but nothing will ever be more than losing family.

It is on this day we try to remember as Americans that we are all in this together.  It doesn’t matter what color, religion or ideology.  We are of the human race.  We are responsible for the well-being of not only ourselves and our family but of those of our community.

His message might fall on deaf ears but it’s a message we should never stop believing in or sharing.  All men are created equal.  The least of you are my brother and as a community we should hold onto these messages during dark times.

Remembering The Birth of Civil Rights For Everyone
