  2. Yes, he courageously
    fought for his principles
    and against a racist war
    that we all now know
    was based on lies & profit!
    Thanks for this remembrance, MK 🙂

      “Why should they ask me to put on a uniform and go 10,000 miles from home and drop bombs and bullets on Brown people in Vietnam while so-called Negro people in Louisville are treated like dogs and denied simple human rights? … If I thought the war was going to bring freedom and equality to 22 million of my people they wouldn’t have to draft me, I’d join tomorrow.”
