On that day, Dr. King proclaimed, "these too are our brothers", and came out against the US involvement in the Vietnam War with a passion and an eloquence that many believe caused his assassination exactly one year later.
As it is, the corporate media has consistently whitewashed Dr. King's views on economic justice, materialism and militarism for decades now. Rather than the blasphemous blather perpetuated by today's Psuedo-Christians of the Far Right, King's words were those of a True Christian Prophet. Like Mahatma Gandhi, Kings politics emerged from the power of Truth and Love. His stirring call for active protest by all people of conscience ring as true today as they did nearly half a century ago. It is no wonder the corporate media today chooses to ignore this speech and remain silent.
