March 23, 2016 – While Martin Luther King Jr. espoused a philosophy of non-violence, a meme depicting Dr. King smiling down at someone who just used a racial slur getting punched in the face seems like something he might be okay with. One Oklahoma teen recently learned a hard lesson in race relations after using a particularly incendiary racial epithet. The results were unsurprising:
Twitter user, @aleeyah405, claims she was responding to a series of threats made by the girl on the receiving end of her Harriet Tubman approved-fist. When she confronted the girl over her statements, well, you saw the video.
So is using the image of a Nobel Peace Prize-winning activist and other Civil Rights icons to celebrate a racial smackdown a bridge too far? Funny or Offensive? VOTE and COMMENT now.
