So said Martin Luther King III, son of civil rights leader the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., after meeting with President-elect Donald Trump.
I watched King say this, but I could not find the quote in the Fake News media. (I eventually found it in the Washington Times.) It’s obvious why. What Martin Luther King III says suggests that, for all his faults, senior was, nevertheless, nothing like the black community’s current, corrupt race hustlers.
