This is why articles like yours are so valuable. Everyone becomes a saint in about 10 years after they pass on — if we go by sound bites or long tail keywords. But every literate person should take the time to read MLK’s bio. It takes less than 60 seconds to pull up in a search and no more than 5–10 minutes to read. Someone who was jailed and ultimately killed must have made at least some people angry.

There’s no reason for anyone to assume MLK would oppose BLM. Because the opposite is he’d be saying that BL (black lives) did not M(matter). King was an activist, church minister and theologian. So opposing BLM would have been highly out of character for him. So yes — I agree, disagreeing with some tactics is not the same as opposition. Thanks for the thought provoking article.
