Congressman John Lewis Reflects On Martin Luther King Jr.

Dismiss

Activist and politician Congressman John Lewis has worked towards the advancement of African-Americans for many years. He had the privilege of working side by side with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. including marching with him in Selma. 

“I think Dr.Martin Luther King Jr. would be very disappointed in what is happening in America today. He would say we should be much farther ahead, we should be speaking truth to power,” expressed Lewis.

The work of Dr.King was controversial but so important to exhibit the change needed in the African-American community.

“I feel I have an obligation, a mission and a mandate to do what I can,” explained Lewis. “We must protect his legacy.”

    Does anybody yet know what Mr. Lewis has done for for black folks besides demonstrate his privileged black racism. John Lewis is an angry black racist and he always voted the way his white overlords order him to.

  2. These so called bikes up, guns down rude disrespectful savages will be back in full swing with their illegal weapons and gun violence before the day ends, Mr. Lewis visited Miami Fla congresswoman Frederika Wilson in Miami a few months ago, this would have been a perfect opp to address the community with this and other issues, but they really could care less, only interested with their pleasure and priviledges of their own interest.
