Dr. Martin Luther King.
I can’t rock with MLK on the peaceful marches and the Christian influence or anything like that, but this quote is on point. It shows you exactly where MLK’s head was at, it wasn’t as far up in the clouds as the “I have a dream” speech would make you think.
These are MLK words that aren’t often quoted. And we see today in 2012 that he was absolutely correct. Black children are white washed and taught anti-blackness in school. Black children are not taught black history or any semblance of black pride and in fact are actively taught the opposite of black pride.
Black children performed MUCH better in schools prior to integration even though the schools were often broke with teachers who didn’t have as much training and in hard to access areas. And even today, black students do better at HBCU’s than PWI’s.
