Kindness matters.
But kindness does not = justice.

Civility counts.
But calling for civility is not the humane response to injustice.
Justice is.

Love is essential.
But love is not a passive, weeping bystander.

Love puts in the work.

In Opinion

Kevin Cooper has been on death row for almost 38 years after being convicted of murdering a white California family. The DNA evidence points elsewhere, @NickKristof writes.

Abolish the death penalty.

“True peace is not merely the absence of tension; it is the presence of justice.”

“Justice at its best is love correcting everything that stands against love.”

~ #MLK

No justice, no peace.

Goodnight, family.

I really hope people stop using my father to diminish others for how they dress, speak, etc.

Elitism is anti-nonviolence.

I encourage engaging with respect.
But respectability (which is different) doesn’t cure racism.

Reminder:

My father was assassinated while wearing a suit.

It is a refusal to deter the destruction of earth and to ensure a livable, safe planet for future generations. That is violence. #ClimateAction #ClimateChange

Truth is essential to unity.

Lies will never yield liberation.

Peace is not possible without justice.

And accountability matters.

Let’s live UP.

As you honor my father today, please honor my mother, as well. She was the architect of the King Legacy and founder of @TheKingCenter, which she founded less than three months after Daddy died. Without #CorettaScottKing, there would be no #MLKDay. #MLK  #BelovedCommunity

A thread of #MLK speeches and sermons in which he speaks truth to power, shares about his philosophy of nonviolence, and expounds on issues of injustice and what our righteous, rigorous response should be. Relevant. Revelatory. Revolutionary. #MLKDay  #BelovedCommunity
