Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, knows violence very well. The assassination of her uncle is only the tip of the iceberg of violence to plague her family.
I found this article about Dr. King calling out Revs. Jackson and Sharpton on “playing the race card” in the Trayvon Martin case. I don’t seriously think that the two of them will listen to her, because, after all, that’s how they make their living and more importantly get the media lights to shine on them.
But I’m glad that Dr. King spoke out. We need a voice of reason in this whole mess. I just hope that even if the good Reverends ignore her, other people won’t.
