If you haven’t already seen episodes of the show Historical Roasts, this episode in which they roast Martin Luther King, Jr., is a great entrypoint. 🙂

It’s disturbing how seemingly oblivious, ignorant, unknowledgeable, and powerless law enforcement seems to be when it comes to protecting anyone other than the power structure in place especially from thuggish, brutish, WASPy white boys such as these.
Praise Jesus et al. for people such as ProPublica.
The headline took the words right out of my mouth! 🙂
This really was an Illuminating documentary. Fortunately I got to see it in theater in Bethesda, Maryland, when it came out. I would highly recommended in any case but especially right now I think it would be extremely valuable given the political context of the fraudulent Supreme Court hearings we’re witnessing these days.
I was somewhat politically aware during this episode in American history but watching the documentary was so much more enlightening and I came away from it with both an extremely high amount of respect for Anita Hill and an extremely high amount of disgust and disappointment in our white-male-supremacist political leadership (including the now beloved-by-association Uncle Joe Biden) that continues to infect our politics. It’s time for us to finally rid our American body of this virus don’t you think?
