Bernice King and the King Center Deny Authorizing Speech for Super Bowl Ad


Last night Dodge Ram aired a commercial during the Super Bowl using a speech by Dr. Martin Luther King.

The King Center distances themselves from the ad...







Meanwhile...


Fun Fact: In 2014 Bernice King sued her brothers Dexter and Martin III over their decision to sell their father's traveling bible and Nobel Peace Prize [click here if you missed that].

The King Family is split- read the tweets again carefully, there saying IT WAS APPROVED just NOT by that faction of the family.

The King Family have been suing each other since King died

the King family doesn't own all of MLK's speeches and recordings.

MLK donated some of his speeches to Boston Univ, Coretta tried to sue to get them back but lost.

I thought they had full control over all of MLKs stuff. They shyster asses sued Mr. Belafonte over a letter MLK SENT to BELAFONTE.

Belafonte took money out of his pocket to bail MLK out of jail many times and feed these trifling ass ppl.

I don't give a shit about any of them. They are their father's blood suckers. That's all they are.

Dexter King is a greedy, manipulative opportunist. They don;t get along because of his greed.

They are a weird bunch. They won't allow "Eyes on the Prize" to air on PBS due to the use of Dr. King's likeness but allow this? Anything for a dollar I guess...or they could get out and find jobs? Perhaps stop eating off a dead man who realized that financial freedom was the true way to equality...

I knew that MLK was not the man he portrayed when I was watching a real preacher speak on how a man of God puts his family first and then his ministry . Well MLK never did that. He dies broke, left them no inheritance, was gone over 300 days of the year and nothing like the man we so call admire. That's why his kids are the pieces of shit they are. Cuz the are Martin's kids.

@5:40

And what did the REAL preacher do to help his entire ppl. Go on I’ll wait. This man worked tirelessly to propel black people forward including his own damn selfish ass kids.

They also had a mother. Kids have two parents for a reason. MLK give his life for a cause. Get back to me when your REAL preacher does anything remotely close that . Otherwise fuck off.

@5:40 TRUTH!

@5:49 5:40 is speaking in context to MLK's "man of God" image. a man of God (preacher, servant of God) puts his wife and children first above all else. Children aren't meant to be raised by one parent but by wife and husband together. He worked tireless to propel black people NOT his wife and children. Hence the cheating and absenteeism from the household.
