With all the crocodile tears finally drying, let’s get real about where the US stands vis a vis third world people’s movements.

Chicago Tribune:

“We have turned Mandela over to the South African security branch. We gave them every detail, what he would be wearing, the time of day, just where he would be. They have picked him up. It is one of our greatest coups.“ -CIA Officer Paul Eckel

And guess what, America?  Dr. King had more than a dream too, and elements of the US government killed him because of it.  They also succeeded in erasing his legacy of opposing the war and fighting for equality and economic justice, so that your kids hear a tiny fraction of what the man actually stood for.
