Here’s What Martin Luther King Had to Say About Reverse Racism

thestoutorialist:

  1. “When millions of people have been cheated for centuries, restitution is a costly process. Inferior education, poor housing, unemployment, inadequate healthcare — each is a bitter component of the oppression that has been our heritage. Each will require billions of dollars to correct. Justice so long deferred has accumulated interest and its cost to society will be substantial in financial as well as human terms. This fact has not been fully grasped, because most of the gains of the past decade were obtained at bargain rates. The desegregation of public facilities cost nothing; neither did the election and appointment of a few black public officials.”  —MLK

This is part of a longer article from an article about MLK did not have time for “reverse racism.”  The article is from the web magazine Dominion of New York

You’ll never see people talking about this.
