MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. DAY

From the column: "That was when it dawned on me that I was part of something bigger than my family. I was connected to all these people by a history that both shaped our strengths and seeded our physical differences."
From the column: "Race was a business when the Ku Klux Klan formed to suppress the Black vote in the 1890s. It was a business during slavery. The difference today is who runs this business. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton have earned millions of dollars extorting companies with their campaigns of racial intimidation. Have they solved any problems? Or have they just turned a profit?"
From the column: "Unquestionably, as demonstrated by the vigilante lynching of Till in 1955 to the vigilante shooting of Arbery in 2020, too often the color of one’s skin continues to dominate."
From the column: "Honoring the authentic legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. requires taking on three of humanity’s great problems, as embodied in the “giant triplets” King fought against: racism, materialism, and militarism."
