Rainbow PUSH Coalition to honor Martin Luther King Jr. with new documentaryA new documentary by Rev. Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH Coalition details King’s reason for coming to Chicago in 1966 and the birth of the PUSH Excel educational program. It airs Monday night. I'm sure the great MLK would be sad to see the divisiveness being sown by our leaders today...all of them. Oh excellent! I can do my laundry when that comes on 😊

Martin Luther King, Jr.,’s Final ChapterMartin Luther King, Jr., the Southern pastor who became a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, attempted to deliver the entire country from racism, war, and greed. He was born on this day in 1929. 20 million of your citizens are living on the streets, homeless, hungry, eating garbage, your government is serving other countries, starving its own people. You spent your taxes on your military bases around the world, the American people will understand. One day Instead the GOP has brought on an unbelievable increase in RACISM, WAR and INTERNAL STRIFE that denies us any PEACE. We celebrate a man whose legacy has been undone by an ideologically stagnant political party. Abraham, Martin, John & Robert… may they R.I.P.

That sentence structure sucks.
