Martin Luther King was assassinated because of his fight against hatred & against prejudice & discrimination in society. This inequality persists still. The data is clear. The experience of those around us speak to this. Prejudice remain. Hatred remains. https://t.co/WXcNZzdXP1 https://t.co/Vk9k9WpFCY
