I think that a lot of people really misunderstand Martin Luther King Jr. Martin Luther King is often seen as a person who marched for equality for black people and was a passive person. That was part of his dream but Martin Luther King Jr died seeking equal wages for sanitation workers. Not just the black sanitation workers but all workers, the events that lead to his untimely death had nothing to do with civil rights. Martin Luther King Jr stood for a lot of things that go against the image that is projected today.

I really began to research and find out more about the Dr. King when one of his quotes popped up on the video game Call of Duty, of all places. If Martin Luther King Jr was alive today he would be seen as militant radical. Fox News would probably have a field day with some MLK quotes. Watch this video and learn something here are a couple of MLK quotes that I think people would find surprising:

"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." ~ Martin Luther King

"Don't let anybody make you think that God chose America as his divine messianic force to be a sort of policeman for the whole world. God has a way of standing before the nations with judgment and it seems that I can hear God saying to America, 'You are too arrogant. If you don't change your ways, I will rise up and break the backbone of your power, and I will place it in the hands of a nation that doesn't even know my name.'" Martin Luther King Jr

America Has Given the negro a bad check, which has come back marked insufficient funds. But we refuse to believe the bank of justice is bankrupt" - Martin Luther King Jr
