To commemorate Martin Luther King day (Monday), I am posting this piece which provides us with a much needed history lesson about another American hero whose significance in our lives has been eviscerated by ruling class media. Indeed, King's activities and words were so significant that they had to assassinate him (read An Act of State by William Pepper).
“The black revolution,” King wrote in a posthumously published 1969 essay titled “A Testament of Hope”...“is much more than a struggle for the rights of Negroes. It is forcing America to face all its interrelated flaws – racism, poverty, militarism, and materialism. It is exposing evils that are rooted deeply in the whole structure of our society. It reveals systemic rather than superficial flaws and suggests that radical reconstruction society of society itself is the real issue to be faced.”
