There is a myth going about. It is spoken on our news. It is taught in our schools. Liberal free thinking allies and racists alike tout it. It is an image that is much more a mirage of a colorblind hero in the body of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Gather round. #MLK2019 #MLK #MLK90
Let's jump right in with a quote from the "I Have A Dream" speech.

Dear White People,
Dr. King's mind was on a lot more than Black kids and White kids holding hands. Read this part: #MartinLutherKingJr on #PoliceBrutality. How #BlackLivesMatter of him...
Schools don't teach that #MartinLutherKing began the Poor People's Campaign, believed in Americans having a universal guaranteed income, and stood vehemently against the "evils" of capitalism and the Vietnam War. His dream went so exceedingly beyond "content of character".

How small Trump and Pence are. They stop by the King Memorial on #MLKDay, say nothing about Dr King or his legacy of expanding America's promise of justice, equality & civil rights. They represent the opposite—fear, hate, cages, walls. So small next to the great Stone of Hope.
Showman Trump's photo-op visit to the King Memorial was just long enough for cameras to snap. He even thanked them. "Thank you for being here. I appreciate it" and left. Nothing about the great American he was supposed to be honoring #MartinLutherKingJrDay
Oh snap: Watch how brief Trump & Pence's visit to the Martin Luther King Jr Memorial in Washington DC was. Just long enough for cameras to snap. Also long enough to capture the combover swinging in the wind over the bald spot. #MartinLutherKingJrDay

Want to tackle racial inequality? State level policies are a good place to start. Here’s a non-exhaustive list of some of legislation proposed in #Maine that will help level the playing field (thread) #mepolitics #MartinLutherKingJrDay
“An Act To Expand the Earned Income Tax Credit in Maine” (LR 163) would increase the size of the state EITC, which goes to low income families. Maine has some the highest poverty rates for POC in the nation, and the EITC is one of the most effective anti poverty programs
“An Act To Ensure Pay Transparency and Reduce Gender and Racial Inequities” (LR 942) would require disclosure of race and gender pay gaps for large companies. Black women in Maine make ~59¢ for every $1 made by a white man. More transparency will force corps to face inequities
