Me too. He's a good example that most of us are quite complicated individuals. But I won't let his faults distract from the good he actually did do. He was effective at moving the needle on civil rights and avoiding what could have been a much more violent period.I have great respect for the MLK’s contributions as an activist / reformer.
I'll take from him that I will treat every person as I find them, and respect them as an individual, regardless of skin color. I just wish that those who carry the mantle of "civil rights" today would do the same. Seems like people want me to make everything about skin color, and I want to make, as best as possible, nothing about skin color.
