“Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.” ~MLK

I find President Trump’s use of my father’s image in his political ad beyond insulting and not reflective of #MLK ’s commitment to creating the #BelovedCommunity . My father should not be used in ways strongly misaligned with his vision and values, @realDonaldTrump . (1/3)

My father was working for an America with leaders who have answered the call to conscience and compassionate action. He said, “We need leaders not in love with money but in love with justice. Not in love with publicity but in love with humanity...” (2/3)

DON’T STOP: Working for justice Leading with love Caring for yourself Advocating for good Believing we can eradicate the Triple Evils (racism, militarism and poverty) We can. Don’t stop.

“The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.” ~Coretta Scott King

Need a little love today? ❤️

“I may not get there with you, but I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the Promised Land.”

“I think of their families brutally plunged into the terrible abyss of grief, made more terrible by the knowledge that their loved ones were killed by their country. And for what? Because they peacefully asked to be allowed to live.” #EndSARS  #Nigeria 

Kindness matters. But kindness does not = justice. Civility counts. But calling for civility is not the humane response to injustice. Justice is. Love is essential. But love is not a passive, weeping bystander. Love puts in work.

If you’re unbothered or mildly bothered by the 1st knee, but outraged by the 2nd, then, in my father’s words, you’re “more devoted to order than to justice.” And more passionate about an anthem that supposedly symbolizes freedom than you are about a Black man’s freedom to live.

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 .

There is no form of protest against racism that is acceptable to racists.

Praying for Breonna’s mother and family. Because they knew and loved her before her name became a hashtag.

If only Daddy would have known about the power of #Pepsi .

Racism is not a difference of opinion.
