Ontem eu fiz postagem sobre o #MartinLutherKingDay no Insta conectando com algumas coisas que tenho vivido no presente e vim compartilhar com vcs aqui. Junto com essa ilustra "Martinho Lutero Negro" que é antiga mas eu amo. Segue o fio:
+ Dentre os muitos prints que recebi sobre a polêmica (injustificada) da música "Clareou", um em particular me envolvia pessoalmente e me chamou a atenção. Não vou expor aqui o print, mas segue o diálogo:
"Amigos, é apenas impressão minha ou samba também entrou na música Adventista? Ainda por cima terminando o clipe em frente uma igreja católica e com alguns *aparentando trajes* de pai de santo?"

1/ Reminder that the #OCBoardofEducation removed a Martin Luther King book in 1971 because MLK was a "conscious support of communism."

Yes, the same board that today pushes anti CRT & anti ethnic studies as "communist" or "marxist."

2/ By 1971, there was a John Birch Society member on the #OCBoardofEducation & their members were targeting local school districts. In Anaheim, it was a textbook that discussed how to review media with a critical eye & recognize propaganda. Ironic. Image
3/ May 1971: .@latimes called attention to the board's book banning of the Martin Luther King biography, "the #OCBoardofEducation is at it again."

The OCBE had previously banned Pulitzer Prize winner John Hersey's book "Hiroshima" and was banning a book by Joan Baez. Image

Dr. Nassir Ghaemi, in his book “A First-Rate Madness: Uncovering the Links Between Leadership and Mental Illness” revealed Dr. King attempted suicide twice before the age of thirteen.

On #MartinLutherKingDay don't be lulled into a false sense of complacency by quotes about love that every moderate trots out about #MLK today. He was a radical progressive who believed in fundamental change and the "fierce urgency of now." So, read his real quotes here:
"We know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed. Frankly I have yet to engage in a direct action campaign that was “well timed” in the view of those who have not suffered unduly from the disease...
...of segregation. For years now I have heard the word “Wait!” It rings in the ear of every Negro with piercing familiarity. This “Wait” has almost always meant “Never.” We must come to see, with one of our distinguished jurists, that “justice too long delayed is justice denied.”

We tried to tell you, over & over, that white supremacists have infiltrated law enforcement & the military.

Some of us tried to warn you this was not just possible but relatively easy for them to do because of the white supremacist roots of policing in the US.

But here we are.
On this #MartinLutherKingDay , please remember this, and resolve to DO something about it:…
It's #MartinLutherKingDay and if you're out here drawing a false equivalence between racial justice protests, & an insurrectionist riot to stage a coup to install one of the most blatantly white supremacist presidents* in decades, this letter is about you:…
