The Language of the Unheard

Martin Luther King, Jr.:

I would be the first to say that I am still committed to militant, powerful, massive, non­-violence as the most potent weapon in grappling with the problem from a direct action point of view… But it is not enough for me to stand before you tonight and condemn riots. It would be morally irresponsible for me to do that without, at the same time, condemning the contingent, intolerable conditions that exist in our society. These conditions are the things that cause individuals to feel that they have no other alternative than to engage in violent rebellions to get attention. And I must say tonight that a riot is the language of the unheard.

Something to think about as we head into an election year during which the voice Washington will hear is the voice that “speaks” with money.

We’re all unheard now.

    Then shall we “Burn baby, Burn!?” Of course it is a misnomer on the part of the popular media that people choose to become violent without being pushed to it by the steadfast refusal of “our masters” to change the evils in the system. After all, one does not take lightly the decision to go up against fully-armed riot police and army tanks.
