MLK on the purpose of demonstration

Again I contend that we are not doing more harm than good in demonstration because I think demonstration serves the purpose of bringing the issues out in the open. I have never felt that demonstrations could actually solve the problem. They call attention to the problem. They dramatize the existence of certain social ills that could very easily be ignored if you did not have demonstrations, and I think the initial reaction to demonstrations is always negative.

  • Apr20Ruben T. How loosers can you be!! We do have a race track in Miami (Okeechobee and Krome) and Sunny Harhor city doesn’t exist! Where do you write from? Kansas or Cuba? Give the series a chance! You are such an arrogant writer to be criticizing something you haven’t even seen! Do your homework, be professional and spare us your crystal ball
