  1. This conversation was pretty myopic the same arguments made against the media in this conversation could be applied to it. The same way you isolate a “radical” king and speculate off that with dead man what ifs, can also be used to make him a villain instead of the hero you sell him as.

  2. Remember Vernon Johns, the pastor of the Dexter Ave Baptist church, who preceded King as pastor & was fired due to his progressive actions in the community. Not a lot said about this man. Some say that Vernon Johns laid the foundation for the american civil rights movement. Otherwise, a good program.
