    David Garrow, the Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer of Martin Luther King Jr., has unearthed information that may forever change King’s legacy.

    In an 8,000-word article published in the British periodical Standpoint Magazine on May 30, Garrow details the contents of FBI memos he discovered after spending weeks sifting through more than 54,000 documents located on the National Archive’s website. Initially sealed by court order until 2027, the documents ended up being made available in recent months through the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992.

    The most damaging memos describe King witnessing a rape in a hotel room. Instead of stopping it, handwritten notes in the file say he encouraged the attacker to continue.’

    Probably for the same reason NOW supported Clinton having sex with an intern in the oval office.

    According to FBI he had orgies where he witnessed a rape and encouraged it, laughed it off.

    Had he been a white man, trust me, his statues would be brought down

    For the simple fact that they are not allowed to do such. If the movement were to go after Martin Luther King, they would be called racist and immediately lose all support from those who align with the left wing liberal divide of politics.

    In essence, the "me too" movement must be subservient to all men, otherwise they will meet an even worse fate would political repercussions for their speaking out. It is the equivalent of battered spouse syndrome.

    hmm, or Evangelicals supporting Trump's Adulterous affairs or the rights support of Drunk drivers with Bush Jr

    that said, this is sinking pretty low to defend Confederate statues of people that fought for slavery

    Why not we have a self confessed ***** grabber who has had at least twenty women accuse him of sexual assault, and a woman who sued him for raping her when she was 13.
