MLK

I want to say this, this man, Martin Luther King, Jr. (aka MLK) is a man that I honor regardless of my race or his race. He fought for the Civil Rights Act and Laws in our country. Today, many of the people are taking a lot of things too far.

 

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.

These two quotes stand out to me the most. The first quote is something that means something hidden. Standing up for what is right is ALWAYS the right thing, but do it in a way that is a respectful way. Civil Protests that result in positive results are amazing, but protest that results in violence is something MLK didn’t want.

The second quote is along the lines of people who get offended by the littlest things. For example, Historical Statues all across our country, continent, and the world. We destroy because it offends us so much, and why? Because we don’t want to see past history. In the civil wars, not only did white men fight, black men fought next with the white men.  President Abraham Lincoln helped the slaves be free, which was a BIG accomplishment for our country then.

When are we going to learn that just because we don’t see the history in most of the things, READ A DAMN BOOK! Read about the history of the world and our country. I love this country, but people are throwing the racists cards like people throw around the word LOVE.

So, in honor of Reverend King’s legacy and memory, stand up for the right things
