Martin Luther King Jr Day – JLD

Martin Luther King Jr Day – JLD

Despite what non-minorities tell their minority counterparts, sexism, racism, and discrimination do indeed exist. And it is not that the perpetrators are evil necessarily, or the recipients perpetual victims; “the fair treatment of all” seem to have a way of not reaching or happening to women, as well as those of diverse ethnic backgrounds. In America, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr was a leader in the Civil Rights Movement and despite his Christian beliefs and nonviolent activism (inspired by Mahatma Gandhi) he was routinely threatened, and eventually assassinated. A day was named in honor of Dr. King and marches are held around the nation each year, but still we remain a nation divided over equality and in The Church and The Community, Page 214, I talk about my own, personal story of discrimination, yet moving forward, because that is what Dr. King wants us to do. Move forward, no matter what.
