I LOVE THIS #couplegoals
Not even an overreactionIf he were alive today he would remind white Amerikkka that even a “respectable” Christian Black man dressed in a suit can still be murdered by an “angry white male”. And he would remind them that he was a *radical*, NOT some whitewashed “moderate”, or liberal or conservative.
I remember a tumblr post about these two black guys on a train and they were using the N-word a lot. A white woman turned to them and asked what they thought Martin Luther King Jr. would feel if he’d known they were using the term, y’know, trying to shame them. One of them responded with, “If your people hadn’t killed him, maybe I could ask him.”
Worked up this illustration of a couple I saw on the train a few weeks back… I embellished a little on the design; the guy didn’t have this body frame, & neither wore gold, but both carried a powerful sense of African pride about them, which I loved… People couldn’t take their eyes off them… I loved that too.
