Daily Kos: Most of you have no idea what Martin Luther King actually did

What most people who reference Dr. King seem not to know is how Dr. King actually changed the subjective experience of life in the United States for African Americans. And yeah, I said for African Americans, not for Americans, because his main impact was his effect on the lives of African Americans, not on Americans in general. His main impact was not to make white people nicer or fairer. That’s why some of us who are African Americans get a bit possessive about his legacy. Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy, despite what our civil religion tells us, is not color blind.

Luvvie shares a brilliant Storify relating part of her experience as an African in America and the things she learned about the difference between Africans and black Americans. I recommend everyone read it.
