Martin Luther King, Jr. opined about the day his four little children would not be judged by the color of their skin, but rather by the content of their character. Sadly character is exactly what King’s son, Martin Luther King III is lacking.; from CBS News:
“The task is not done, the journey is not complete,” he said. “The vision preached by my father a half-century ago was that his four little children would no longer live in a nation where they would judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
“However, sadly, the tears of Trayvon Martin’s mother and father remind us that, far too frequently, the color of one’s skin remains a license to profile, to arrest and to even murder with no regard for the content of one’s character,” he said, calling for “stand your ground” self-defense laws to be repealed in states where they have been enacted.
The late Trayvon Martin was not killed because of his race, unless you argue that Martin’s race caused his criminal behavior. Martin was killed while attempting to mug George Zimmerman. It is damning to see that MLK III is by rhetoric indistinguishable from the ilk of Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Eric Holder and Barack Obama.
