MLK On Dreams, Integrity, Labor, And Capitalism

On this Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, let us remember that King stood, campaigned, and died for more than the civil rights of Black America. He stood for all of America as he opposed the war in Vietnam, supported labor and labor unions, and eventually spoke out against the American capitalist economic system.

Here are four photos and quotes of King to commemorate this day.

    Hey, Brian. I appreciate your comment. May I suggest you read the OXFAM briefing paper, “Working For The Few – Political Capture and Economic Inequality” at http://www.oxfam.org/en/policy/working-for-the-few-economic-inequality. This paper shares information and facts about extreme economic inequality – the result of a global neo-liberal capitalist agenda – in the world and its devastating effects on people, nations, and the democratic process.
