  •  Thank you, Troutfishing (3+ / 0-)

    There was a letter to the editor of The Greenville (SC) News just last week that applauded Dr King's work for civil rights for African-Americans as race is immutable, but decried the work for "special rights" for "those who choose to behave a certain way". I was appalled. I knew about Bayard Rustin's role in the March on Washington and that Mrs King was supportive of equality for LGBT folk, but I didn't know about Lynn Cothren. I think I need to write my own LTE in rebuttal.
