I find it of great interest that this man had been assaulted, beaten, jailed and more during his fight for racial equality but it wasn't until he became more vocal about economic equality and war profiteering that he was silenced permanently.
So many people are behind him and his speeches when he was talking about his dream but so few know of the man who spoke about capitalism run amok. A man who essentially called this government's policies when it comes to the wealthy, socialism. It seems like so many conservatives treat that word as a four letter word and yet, according to MLK, it is the elite who've benefitted most from social policy in their favor. Hit the video at 3:19 to hear about some of that social policy used in early America.
As we heard in the news over the coming months about Americans speaking up about lifting minimum wage to $15 an hour, keep this in mind: MLK speaking at a union rally "...you are reminding America that it is a crime to live in this rich nation and receive starvation wages."
