USA Today’s screaming headline ‘Whites killed MLK’ doesn’t honor anyone!

USA Today angered social media on Monday when its headline blamed all ‘whites’ for the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

“Whites killed MLK. Now we honor him,” the headline blared.

For the record King was assassinated by one man, James Earl Ray, on April 4, 1968.

“My dad called Martin Luther King an “agitator.” I bet a lot of white dads did. Seems like every time Dr. King showed up somewhere, things got torn up or burned up,” the author, Oliver Thomas, wrote in the article for USA Today.

“So we killed him. Not me, of course. I’m not a racist. But who thinks he is?” he said.

Perhaps Thomas was projecting onto others the guilt he felt for his racist childhood.

Thomas went on to write a litany of crimes committed by white people in the history of America and blaming it for all of the racial issues in the nation.

But he has a solution.

White people, and only white people, have to take a step to bridge the racial divisions.

“Are whites and blacks condemned to live only parallel lives with a great chasm forever separating us?” Thomas asked. “Not necessarily. White people could rise to the occasion. We could perform the first and more fundamental act of love.

“We could listen.”

Social media gave him, and USA Today, something to listen to.
