Was watching some footage from MLK and I noticed many similarities against the peaceful marches during the Birmingham campaign. I am not making a point here, but more sharing this quote. We should understand history because it definitely can help us understand our own weak spots.
On the topic of history, famous George Wallace pushed back against MLK. One of the themes we see today. I had to censor one word that is controversial today. I edited it in brackets. I will link the source for this quote. "…Despite growing conflict over race and civil rights, Wallace wrote Martin that ‘we have never had a problem in the South except in a few very isolated instances and these have been the result of outside agitators.’ Wallace asserted that ‘I personally have done more for the [Blacks] of the State of Alabama than any other individual,’ citing job creation and the salaries of black teachers in Alabama. He rationalized segregation as “best for both races,writing that ‘they each prefer their own pattern of society, their own churches and their own schools.’” History may not repeat but it sure does rhyme.
