He sought his ultimate haters to understand what made them tick, & in the process made some his closest friends & inspired many to leave the organization.
Good for him and all, but in the 21st century a black man shouldn’t have to dedicate his life to teaching white people why it’s wrong to hate him just because of the color of his skin.
There is, or at least was a couple of years ago a good documentary film about him on either Amazon or Netflix, I forget which.
We need a lot people like him in our world! Amazing story!
