    Martin Luther King, Jr.

    "would not be invited to the very march in his name, because he would talk about drones.

    He'd talk about Wall Street criminality.

    He would talk about working class being pushed to the margins as profits went up for corporate executives in their compensation.

    He would talk about the legacies of white supremacy.

    Do you think anybody at that march will talk about drones and the drone president? Will you think anybody at that march will talk about the connection to Wall Street? They are all on the plantation.

    And, of course, the two-party system is dying, and therefore it doesn't have the capacity to speak to these kinds of issues.

    So, no, not at all." - Cornel West



    In this interview, we speak with scholar, activist and organizer Pamela Brown on the subject of Cornel West's remarks, as well as the justice King stood for and the irony of the anniversary being used as a pep rally for the Democratic party.
