THE THICK BLUE LINE
The director of The Martin Luther King Jr. Research and Education Institute at Stanford University said “we have no record of the maxim.”
The police department in Columbus, Ohio is celebrating Black History Month with a themed cop car, which uses a quote from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.: “Be the peace you wish to see in the world.”
Just one of the many problems with this move is that it appears MLK never said that.
The Columbus Division of Police unveiled the car it dubbed “History 1” Wednesday, saying in a social media post that the car will “celebrate the achievements of African Americans & recognize their roles in our history.” The video announcing the car plays excerpts from King’s legendary “I Have a Dream” speech.
