Been seeing this post on social media and I call BS.
Martin Luther King Jr. may not have burned a building, robbed a store or destroyed a town BUT he was REVILED in his lifetime.
He was jailed, including right here in St. Augustine. He was spied upon and wiretapped by the FBI, who actually encouraged him to commit suicide. He was assassinated, leading to major disturbances across the nation. Yes, he changed the world – DESPITE all that was thrown at him.
Get outta here with this crap and go read a book.
