Disturbing images of Dr. Martin Luther King turned up all over the internet by Michigan party promoters, advertising freedom to twerk parties in honor of the King Holiday weekend.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s head was photo shopped onto the body of a man (pictured above) wearing a gold chain and throwing up “west side” hand gestures to advertise a holiday party.
The flier, which was created by promoter group “Mid-Michigan Teen Parties“, billed the event as a chance to express one undeniable right that wasn’t apart of King’s agenda and that is, the “Freedom 2 Twerk.”
Other fliers were also circulating promoting a King Holiday party weekend by quoting excerpts from his famous “I have a dream” speech. “Free At Last” anyone 21 and over free until midnight”.
Dr. Martin Luther King was a champion for justice, equality, tolerance and non-violence and these images and gestures promoting such parties in honor of a holiday activist fought so hard to observe, are highly disrespectful!
Be sure and “tune-in” with me tonight at 8:00 P.M. to “Conversations Of A Sistah” on “Conversations Live” as I address such disrespect while discussing the real intent of the Rev. Martin Luther King’s dream.
