@jorgepernes just sent us this image in anticipation of a new… http://ift.tt/1n5snpp
I would literally kill myself but I still want to try this.
U.S. Martin Luther King Jr being attacked as he marched nonviolently for the Chicago Freedom Movement, 1966, which was the most ambitious civil rights campaign in the North of the United States, and lasted from mid-1965 to early 1967.
If only he’d been well-spoken, pulled his pants up and didn’t wear a hoodie… oop… wait…
Please really look at this. Look at how many men are on him. Look at how you can see he is not attacking anyone. Look at how he is dressed. Imagine the fear he has that this moment may have been his last. Remember that he was assassinated by forces within the U.S. gov’t because of his mission. Before you pull that string on that MLK Jr. watered-down quote teddy, look at this, look at what’s happening today, and really fucking think.
"Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is protected by supporters after being hit with a stone during a housing march in what was then the all-white Marquette Park neighborhood on Chicago’s Southwest Side. King marched to protest housing segregation and inadequate housing for minorities. "I have seen many demonstrations in the South, but I have never seen anything so hostile and so hateful as I’ve seen here (in Marquette Park) today," King said. — Chicago Tribune historical photo, Aug. 5, 1966"
HEY LOOK, MORE IDIOTS TAKING PHOTOS OUT OF CONTEXT!
These men were PROTECTING Rev. King, not attacking him.
Someone outside the pic was the scumbag attacking him, jesus fucking asscrackers, tumblr.
OP is a fuckwit.
Things like this have me worried for our country’s future. How can we go forward honestly and with honor if we do not know history and do not present it in an honest light?
It seems too many people are more worried about short-term political gains by inciting social tensions than worried about being honest and learning the valuable lessons our forefathers already paid for in blood for us.
God people are stupid….
