“King David (man after Gods own heart) did worse than MLK in having a man killed to conceal his lustful adulterous affair with Bathsheba.”
What King David did was made public knowledge and he suffered greatly for it. MLK Jr is said to poop flowers and no one is allowed to call him imperfect. I think it is the media image of MLK Jr that folks are dissing.
If I had been a black man in 1960, I’d have preferred Malcolm X to MLK. I find him a much more interesting person, and appreciate that folks admit he was a flawed human being.
Honestly, I’d probably feel disgust towards Malcolm X, since he was openly Communist and tried to engineer a violent revolt. MLK is a flawed human being, so here’s one person who admits that bit.
