  •  I'm all for MLK and Ghandi (4.00)
    but we live in a relatively privileged country that supported the rape and torture of nuns, assasinations of priests , and massacre of indigenous populations.

    I suppose pacifists icons and peaceful protests may have been effective but I doubt it.

    •  And... (none)
      compare the depictions of more militant members of the civil rights movements in the U.S. (Malcolm X, the Black Panthers) to the peaceful (MLK, Jr.). There's immediately an evident backlash- but can we say that one was ultimately more effective than the other, or were the militants framed as such as a means of quashing their message?
