As a black man born and raised in the USA I can tell you personally from what I have experience/seen/deduced: the government doesn’t care about African-Americans and their civil liberties.
I say this to correct a fallacy. The FBI didn’t advise Martin Luther King Jr to commit suicide solely because he was helping black people of the nation free themselves from terrorism. They did it because in addition to shining a light on American atrocities to the Negro, he was turning the public into a forum to discuss the nation’s militarization as well as class warfare: two things which are forbidden according to the American social contract.
According to the Church Committee, a 1975 investigation by the U.S. Congress, “From December 1963 until his death in 1968, Martin Luther King, Jr. was the target of an intensive campaign by the Federal Bureau of Investigation to ‘neutralize’ him as an effective civil rights leader.”
After King gave his “I Have A Dream” speech during the March on Washington on August 28, 1963, the FBI described King as “the most dangerous and effective Negro leader in the country”
When you have popular conservatives vehemently opposed to both Martin Luther King Jr. and having MLK Day being a national holiday, we have to imagine that there are serious reason why even so many decades after his death we are presented with such a photo-shopped depiction of MLK.
“Misled into believing” MLK was a great man: How some Republicans fought against the King holiday
If anyone is interested I would like to talk about Martin Luther King, Jr. behind the white-washed depictions. I like t open the table up for discussion?
Is anyone interested ?
