I’m one of the few white conservatives in America who grew up in a majority black urban city and attended all black middle school and all black high school. So, I grew up with an understanding and appreciation of Reverend Martin Luther King and his extraordinary ideas and strategies – in particular, Civil Disobedience.
Dr. King was against any form of violence. So am I. But he understood that civil rights for black Americans would never be achieved without pushing the envelope. So, Dr. King inspired protests, strikes, boycotts, sit-ins and other forms of Civil Disobedience to get the attention of the government, businesses, media and white America.
It worked. I had a front seat view of how effective his strategy was. Dr. King and his Civil Disobedience changed this country and helped achieve civil rights and equality for black Americans.
Sadly, it’s now time for conservatives, Christians, patriots and 80+ million Trump warriors
