Some thoughts on race and leadership from P6

Fantastic post. What Dr. King has to say on the nature of leadership is just startling in its prescience.
What's sad is that now that Dr. King is dead, many conservative leaders are dragging out his corpse, brushing it off and putting words into his mouth, implying that he would side with their agenda, both the openly racist and inadvertently racist parts. Rarely anymore do you get to hear or read anything he actually said, outside of carefully edited sections of his "I Have a Dream" speech. Dr. King has been reduced to a few nice words and an unfortunate death, while most of what he said and did is roundly ignored.
Of course, considering the hoopla around The Passion, I guess we shouldn't expect any better. We live in a nation of people that cares more for the dramatic circumstances of people's deaths than the meaning behind the way they lived their lives.
