Happy Birthday Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would have been 83 years old. Can you imagine what he would say if he saw how Black people have digressed? How they don’t vote even though there were so many people who lost their lives just for that right? And what about this whole “post-racial” thing? He would would blow a gasket!

Anyway, join me in celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
