Guest Post by Elizabeth Hunter:
When you see images of Martin Luther King Jr. marching in Birmingham - remember a court ordered him NOT to protest in the city. He was breaking the law.
MLK's idea of non-violence did not include obeying unjust laws. He was not violent. But he still protested against civil laws and authorities.
When you think, protestors violating curfew deserve to be shot with rubber bullets and tear gassed, or better yet, when you are silent on these actions, then you side with an oppressive system. White silence is violence.
