I’m just saying ... if the “non-profit” NCAA had to be SHAMED into providing these student-athletes with 3 damn meals a day throughout the course of a whole year while they’re out there busting their asses, making billions of dollars annually for the NCAA, that is a problem. Come for me if you want...

“Our only hope today lies in our ability to recapture the revolutionary spirit and go out into a sometimes hostile world declaring eternal hostility to poverty, racism and militarism ... We are now faced with the fact, my friends, that tomorrow is today and we are faced with the fierce urgency of now.” — Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Happy birthday, brother Malcolm. Anti-colonialism and human rights activist. You were on the verge of many great things before you were assassinated at the young age of 39. We miss your leadership, wisdom and guidance today more than ever. They may have taken you away from us physically but your words and your love for humanity will live on throughout eternity. Rest in paradise. 🙏🏿

Today Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is most remembered for his famous "I Have a Dream" speech on the steps of the Lincoln memorial in front of over a quarter million people, in which he calls for an end to racism and demanded civil/economic rights. Less than one year later the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which outlawed discrimination, was passed. A significant step forward was taken towards living up to the nation's founding ideals.

Fast forward to April 4, 1967, when Dr. King fi...rst spoke out about the Vietnam war at Riverside Church in New York City with 3,000 in attendance in a speech titled, "Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence." He wanted this speech to be brutally honest and radical in nature—and it was every bit of that. He recognized how the escalation of the Vietnam war had effects on domestic programs that benefited the poor and the community, he declared, “A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.” It was blasphemy to speak about the United States in this way—and especially at a time of war against the despised Communists. But he had stated early in the speech that he had chose this route "because my conscience leaves me no other choice." King was widely condemned for the speech, including by some allies. The media went ALL THE WAY IN on him. LA Times, NY Times, TIME, Washington Post, to name a few. At the end of the day, he did what he felt was his moral obligation and wasn't deterred.

In this particular clip he is explaining how he began to understand the importance and moral obligation that, if he was going to demand the youth in America be non-violent at home for social change, he would have to speak out against American militarism abroad as well—risking a crucial alliance with President Johnson, whom he worked with vigorously for the passage of the Civil Rights Act less than three years earlier.

But as he acknowledged on that day, "We are called to speak for the weak, for the voiceless, for the victims of our nation, for those it calls “enemy..." This is the most important speech he gave IMO. Rest in paradise, brother Martin 🙏🏿
