I’m white and stumbled upon this site by accident. I read the above comment and couldn’t help but comment. You talk about leverage. What leverage? To struggle for leverage is to assume that there is some sort of battle going on. What in the h**l do you think isn’t GIVEN to you already??? Are you angry because of slavery? 400 years ago? I promise you, I had nothing to do with that. I’m pretty sure you didn’t either. If you keep on with this garbage ideology, and teaching your children the same thing, it will never change. If you think white people give a s**t about holding black people down, you are sadly mistaken. We don’t give a s**t. Live your life. We live ours. Let’s all mix it up. But we don’t expell any energy trying to hold you, or anybody back. h**l, we don’t have that power in ther first place.

I have a different perspective on this commentary. I’m a coach assisting individuals seeking to make a change in their lives. One of the steps we take is to gain leverage to motivate a client to make the necessary adjustments and if they don’t, the consequences will be the leveraged component. What’s does this have to do with Dr. King? Well White people see him as a transformational being for unity. I recently spoke with a man who promoted a African American woman and said that he judged her on the content of her character and felt good about his gesture. If this is the leverage we can gain from what Dr. King represents, let’s take it! We fuss and gripe about everything when our focus should be to take what is good and move forward looking for more ways to gain leverage. Let’s keep Dr. Kings legacy as it is: A transformation being for social racial change. Leave all of the other stuff for scholar and students to discuss in that forum and not in the public arena. We might just lose our leverage if we don’t.
