MLK’s letter to white moderates is more relevant now than ever

It took me a while to find a clean source of this quote. You’d be surprised at how many people who are scrambling to provide cover for the January 6th 2021 white-supremacist insurrection and their spiritual leader also enjoy sharing #MLKDAY #MLK quotes.

The letter Martin Luther King Jr. Wrote from the Birmingham Jail on April 16, 1963 is also a must-read for anyone in 2021, especially us white moderates who could sit back while once again comforting propaganda paints over the vile racism that poisons our great nation.
