Well let’s have a look at what things were like back when Martin Luther King Jr (MLKJ) was around before he was killed by racist America.
Slavery in the UK was abolished in 1833 but the US had too much money tied up in slavery and it took until 1865 and a civil war that killed 600,000 people before the US was willing to abolish slavery. It then still took another 100 years of struggle until the times of MLKJ for African Americans to have the same rights as their white neighbours.
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. Martin Luther King Jnr.
