The singer’s attorney began his closing statement discussing the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. It was, objectively, a head-scratching citation.
"Pot's too big to fold Ace King ... he's pot-committed" ... I can't afford to take this loss, it's too big
As you honor my father today, please honor my mother, as well. She was the architect of the King Legacy and founder of @TheKingCenter , which she founded less than three months after Daddy died. Without #CorettaScottKing , there would be no #MLKDay . #MLK #BelovedCommunity
If anyone had a right to question whether our democracy was worth redeeming, it was Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Because in the face of billy clubs and lynchings, poll taxes and literacy tests, he never gave in to violence, never waved a traitorous flag or gave up on our country.
Don’t act like everyone loved my father. He was assassinated. A 1967 poll reflected that he was one of the most hated men in America. Most hated. Many who quote him now and evoke him to deter justice today would likely hate, and may already hate, the authentic King. #MLK .
