For general discussion and debate. Possible talking point: Martin Luther King Jr. assassinated 40 years ago today.

What were you doing that day, and what do you remember feeling when you heard the awful news? Might race relations have been different today if King was still around?

Why hasn't there been a viable replacement in the last 40 years which have instead produced folks like Farrakhan, Jackson, and Sharpton seemingly much more interested in advancing themselves than those they claim to represent?
