I don't find Jackson's words divisive or misleading.

Those who don't remember history are doomed to repeat it.

While I completely respect what MLK stood for, I find Jenn M Jackson's quote to be divisive. Imo, calling out "white Americans" was unecessary and is misleading. Racism is a world problem. Every race among mankind has experienced it, and has also been guilty of it. Calling out white, brown, yellow, red... Americans (people) is beneath us and should be a thing of the past. Other than that, I agree with her quote.

“This Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we would do his memory justice by honoring all of his legacy. Not just the parts that make white Americans comfortable.“ ~ JennMJack

“All we say to America is, ‘Be true to what you said on paper.’ If I lived in China or even Russia, or any totalitarian country, maybe I could understand the denial of certain basic First Amendment privileges, because they hadn't committed themselves to that over there. But somewhere I read of the freedom of assembly. Somewhere I read of the freedom of speech. Somewhere I read of the freedom of the press. Somewhere I read that the greatness of America is the right to protest for Right.” ~ MLK Jr from “I've Been To The Mountain Top,” April 3, 1968

“Be a bush if you can't be a tree. If you can't be a highway, just be a trail. If you can't be a sun, be a star. For it isn't by size that you win or fail. Be the best of whatever you are.” ~ MLK Jr from speech before a group of students at Barratt Junior High School in Philadelphia, October 26, 1967

“For when people get caught up with that which is Right and they are willing to sacrifice for it, there is no stopping point short of victory.” ~ MLK Jr from “I've Been To The Mountain Top,” April 3, 1968

"We've got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn't matter with me now because I've been to the mountaintop . . .I've looked over and I've seen the promised land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the promised land." ~ MLK Jr from “I've Been To The Mountain Top,” April 3, 1968

Prophetic words. Sentiments that all Americans should embrace.
