Since today is Dr. King's birthday I thought it appropriate to raise the question of who this man actually was. The mass media works very hard to present him solely as a voice for racial peace. Accepting people based on the content of their character is important, but that was only one aspect of Dr. King's work. His true contribution was a message of justice for the impoverished throughout the world from exploitation by multi-national corporate dominance. A part of this message includes King's uncompromised opposition to the Vietnam war because it typified the corporate agenda while sacrificing millions of Vietnamese people as well as 55,000 U.S. service people.
It's important to understand this aspect of Dr. King because the corporate media doesn't want you to know this about him. They are afraid that if you know this you will then start to question how they can advance the Iraq/Afghanistan/North Korea/Iran war agenda while trying to convince you they are in support of Dr. King's dream. Make no mistake about it. If Dr. King was still just talking about White kids and Black kids holding hands, he'd probably still be here today.
