‘Martin Luther King’s Golden Legacy of Nonviolence’
Don’t worry — it’s Jim Goad. RTWT:
On Friday during a speech in Florida, slain civil-rights icon Martin Luther King, Jr.’s far fatter, balder, and lighter-skinned son urged Americans to break free from their wretchedly shameful “culture of violence.”
The next day, a Mississippi man was shot in the chest during a parade honoring King’s legendary (and, c’mon, far more famous) daddy.
The shooting occurred on Martin Luther King Drive in Jackson, MS. The 23-year-old victim and the shooting suspect have yet to be named, but police officer Colendula Green is on the case, and I only mention her name because, well, it’s one of those great black names, you know?
