megaursaring asked: You're so full of hate and ignorance yourself it is kind of sad. Did you learn nothing of MLKs teachings, you won't get anywhere being indignant towards a whole race of people, that's not how you seek change.
I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro’s great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen’s Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to “order” than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: ‘I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action’; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man’s freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a ‘more convenient season.’ Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection

Little did you know, Martin Luther King fucking hated you lmao oops..
One of the best triumph songs of 2013.. repeated this all the way through finals week. It probs wasn’t intended for a black female college student who was struggling through a philosophy final, but whatuur.
