Did Martin Luther King sell black people a dream or a colorblind nightmare????

Nah. White people twisted his words and stripped him until he was known as a blush toy that says “I have a dream” when you pull the string.

But when I look back on Malcolm X’s beliefs in his early days his views were way more sensible. People labeled him an extremist when really his views weren’t extreme at all. I guess because he stood for full black solidarity and limiting contact with white people until we got ourselves together folks took that as “anti white”. I honestly feel like if we listened to Malcolm more than MLK we would have been better off.

I agree with this 100%. I truly believe Malcolm had black people’s best interest in mind. Reading his views compared to MLK’s I’ve always agreed with him more. I just think MLK gets too much of a “sensible black leader” rap. He though integration would cure everything but Malcolm knew it was deeper than that. 

Part of me thinks they should’ve made William Dent gay (the articulate black man, from a decent background that went to law school and made senior partner at a major all-white law firm can be gay too. Not just Mya’s hairstylist messy cousins). But then he would’ve had to be in the closet until he quit, which would be regression. I mean, I guess he’s supposed to show men and women can be friends, but that’s null when you hit 2 of the 4; yet, him and Joan were understandable because we all get blur vision to think our closest opposite sex friend may actually be “the one” on some Romantic Comedy type ish then snap out of it and the friendship stays intact.
