The Newest Liberal Outrage On College Campuses: Martin Luther King Jr.
Just when you think that the manufactured outrage wafting from the college campuses across the country can’t be any more obnoxious, another group of self-centered college students cries out to be heard. This time the liberal students have turned on one of history’s most beloved figures.
“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. I have a dream…”
Those beautiful words spoken by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. inspired a nation. According to the Blaze, the University of Oregon put those words on the wall in 1986 inside the Erb Memorial Union for all the future generations to see.
When the quote was taken down during construction, the student union launched a debate over whether the quote was “inclusive” enough to put back on display.
“Diversity is so much more than race,” one student said, “Obviously race still plays a big role. But there are people who identify differently in gender and all sorts of things like that.”
Another student asked, “Does the MLK quote represent us today?”
The director of the Student Union, Laurie Woodward, believes that the words are important, “but what’s more important is that people think about what the words should be.”
After the Student Union received severe backlash from the public and student body, it was decided that Dr. King’s words would be put back on the wall.
Dr. King is safe… for now. How long will it be until the liberal culture cannibalizes everything that he fought so hard for?
