    A piece from TYT on how wrong Bill O'Reilly is on claiming Martin Luther King would not approve the BLM movement.

    Among other arguments, Cenk Uygur gives this quote from Dr King, taken from "Letter from a Birmingham Jail"

    "I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action"; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a "more convenient season."
