He was human, but he did and advocated for some pretty awful things such as calls for violent protest, plagiarism, numerous orgies while married, and even funny things like economic illiteracy.

Violent protests aren't "an awful thing", when they are a response to a violent institution (institutionalized racial domination).
Feelings are the fleeting fancy of fools.
The search for truth in a world of lies is the only thing that matters.

Are you sure they aren't talking about Malcom X, but using the name MLK Jr? Seriously, MLK was like Ghandi.

Like Gandhi, MLK Jr. had his problems. I think the worse thing he did was beat prostitutes. I remember reading about how FBI Director Hoover held this over his head.

Who remembers the civil trial where a jury unanimously held that government agencies had a hand in the conspiracy to assassinate this guy?

Go vote on one of my debates. I'm not that smart, so it'll probably be an easy decision.

Hold up here. You got some stuff a little mixed up.

He never ever called for violent protest. Ever.

, plagiarism, numerous orgies while married, and even funny things like economic illiteracy.

He never advocated these things. He was an imperfect human, and he did do some of these, but he never advocated them.

I actually just heard about this the other day.
I thought it was some lie people were spreading on Facebook, like today being the day Marty McFly went to the future.

Anyway, wasn't the trial about the government's failing in protecting him, not necessarily having a had in the conspiracy?
My work here is, finally, done.

Transcript of the case: http://www.thekingcenter.org...

"THE COURT: In answer to the question did Loyd Jowers participate in a conspiracy to do harm to Dr. Martin Luther King, your answer is yes. Do you also find that others, including governmental agencies, were parties to this conspiracy as alleged by the defendant? Your answer to that one is also yes. And the total amount of damages you find for the plaintiffs entitled to is one hundred dollars. Is that your verdict?

THE JURY: Yes (In unison)."

MLK Jr. advocated non-violent civil disobedience!

He never encouraged his supporters to use violence to change discriminatory laws in the South. He always believed change could happen through peaceful community activism. Sometimes unjust laws were broken through non-violence, but they frequently had to be. For example, Rosa Parks ended discriminatory bus policies by refusing to give up her seat to a white man. She was arrested but was absolutely convinced she did the right thing by bringing attention to an unjust public transportation policy.
