Default MLK's niece on viral hoodie image: 'Martin Luther King Jr. would not wear a hoodie



Quote:
The niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. says she is not a fan of the viral image of her uncle wearing a hoodie in support of Trayvon Martin. The image, created by artist Nikkolas Smith and spread widely by activist Van Jones on Twitter, shows a contemplative King wearing the garment, which has become a symbol of support for the slain 17-year-old.

I can almost promise you Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would not wear a hoodie, said Alveda King on the Andrea Tantaros radio show Tuesday when asked about the image.

So if I go out wearing a hoodie, I'm automatically a Trayvon Martin supporter?

Only thing MLK would say about this whole situation is probably this...

“Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would very likely not wear a hoodie,” she said. “I can assure you he would not wear sagging pants. I don't even think I’ve ever even seen his sons with sagging pants.”

She's a conservative pro-life activist.

I think it's wrong for either side to speak up for the dead about what they would or wouldn't do. She'd probably go as far as saying MLK would have voted for Mitt Romney in this last election.

You know what? I think she is completely right. MLK JR is the type of guy that would not walk around wearing a hoodie.

He is also the type of guy that preached non-violence; everything he stood for and did in his life was based on the study of non-violence. If somebody hit him, he would not hit back. He based his life around the studies of Mahatma Gandhi. He is the type of guy that would rather get arrested and thrown in jail for something he believed in than violate his own beliefs. THAT right there goes against the actions of Trayvon Martin. Sure, he was a kid and you can make the argument that his violent actions were also in self-defense, but don't distort what MLK stood for to make your own activist statement. MLK STOOD FOR NON-VIOLENCE EVEN UNDER OPPRESSION!!

I find it very insulting that people are using MLK in this to get their own biases over this case across. That goes against everything MLK himself believed in. I studied MLK's life very closely, and I find him to be one of the most inspirational people that I have ever studied. And I'm not black.

Lets not act as if Trayvon Martin was like MLK JR. No, there are ZERO similarities and to try to create some sort of connection between the two is in violation of MLK's beliefs and standards.

Wait, DID she say that, or are you attempting to put words in her mouth?
