Donald Trump Shouldn't Even Speak or Type Martin Luther King's Name
For starters, over the weekend, Donald Trump spent days attacking civil rights hero John Lewis, then saying he was going to the African-American History Museum/cancelling plans to go to the African-American History Museum/totally never actually having any plans to visit the African-American History Museum in the first place.
But today is not the day to speak of that garbage goblin. A great way to truly honor Martin Luther King, Jr. today is to spend some time on Broderick Greer’s Twitter.

We must #reclaimMLK from narratives that sentimentalize, infantilize, and fetishize his radical nature.— #reclaimMLK (@BroderickGreer) January 16, 2017
