Part of what made MLK so great was that, contrary to popular belief, he was a pretty radical dude.
He was arrested over 30 times while protesting believing, "One has a moral responsiblility to disobey unjust laws."
He called on U.S. leaders to scale down militarism, to form a multiracial working class coalition and to combat poverty.
"Everyone is worrying about the long hot summer with its threat of riots. We had a long cold winter when little was done about the conditions that create riots," King said in June 1967.
King was a Democratic Socialist who preached about resistance and strength as much as he preached about love. But many of these qulities have been sanitized out of history.

Calvin alum here, '13 grad. Go Knights and Go Pistons!
|18 weeks 3 days ago||Speight||
Speight went 6-9 after that 3-12 start. Hopefully he can connect on the deep throws in the second half.

My vote goes to Decathlete Ashton Eaton, who is won back-to-back Gold medals in the event. Just the third Olympian to do so.
|25 weeks 3 hours ago||At least they gave us||
At least they gave us a point-system to work with that makes sense. I prefer this to list articles that read "I believe school x is No. 1 because reasons."
It looks like Michigan is the highest-ranked team with two national titles.

The Kitchen Scene from the Raid 2.

Harvel was the third coach in Detroit PSL history to win a state football title, joining Jim Reynolds (King) and Wilcher (Cass). Every state football title from the PSL has come since 2007.

Five-time NBA Champion
Three-time Finals MVP
Ever since the Spurs drafted Duncan No. 1 overall in 1997, no team in any of the four major sports has had a better win percentage (.710)
|29 weeks 4 days ago||In today's NBA||
In today's NBA, a player averaging 40 MPG is very rare. KCP was one of the league leaders in minutes at 37 per.
I believe LeBron averaged right under 40 this season.

Her name is pronounced Kai-zer.
|49 weeks 5 days ago||Mr. Big Shot||
Mr. Big Shot spend eight of his 17 seasons with Detroit., with career averages of 16.5 points and 6.2 assists during that span.
- Five All-Star appearances
- Second in franchise history in 3-pointers made (890)
- Fourth in franchise history in assists (2,984)
- Eighth in free throws made (2,336)
What an awesome ceremony. So many great memories of watching him sink clutch baskets.

Bowie State is a member of the University System of Maryland. That relationship may have played a factor as well.
|49 weeks 6 days ago||I'd imagine||
I’d imagine at least part of it has to do with it being Black History Month. Bowie State is Maryland's oldest historically black university and one of the ten oldest in the country.

A few more interesting numbers from Tuesday's game:
- Minus Drummond, the Pistons were 22-of-23 from the line.
- After going 7-of-28 from the line thru the first 3 quarters, Drummond was 6-of-8 in the 4th.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Hopefully Jackson||
Hopefully Jackson's injury is short-term. A long-term injury would throw a wrench in the progress the team has made.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Apparently Carr and English||
Apparently Carr and English will serve as consultants for Jackson, as well. Can't really beat that level of coaching experience at the high school level.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||How about||
How about them Pistons?
It has been 2,420 days since the Pistons have been two games above .500. That's a long time.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||They're actually shooting||
They're actually shooting Fantastic Beasts And Where to Find Them right now.
It's set 70 years before Harry Potter existed and centers around Newt Scamander and his findings. It's supposed to be released next fall. Pretty stoked for it!
|1 year 17 weeks ago||True, players like||
True, players like Ogden are one in a million. He also plays on the varsity basketball team. Not sure he'd be Power 5 caliber in basketball but I'm sure some teams would give him a look.

Am I too late for the bang?
|1 year 21 weeks ago||Cubit to serve as interim coach.||
Cubit to serve as interim coach. Honestly, I feel like Cubit is an upgrade over Beckman.

Happy Friday, everyone! Less than two weeks away from the most anticipated season opener in recent memory!

According to Jim Mora, Cordell informed him yesterday that he decided he wanted to be more involved with his company Film School Productions.

Tell us how you really feel.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||"Broyles said||
"Broyles said he, his wife and child live on a budget close to $60,000 a year, with the rest of his money going to investments and savings. Broyles is also frugal when it comes to spending on cars or his home."
He has an average yearly salary of $900,000, so his family is living off about 7% of his yearly salary. That's intense.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||Ugh.||
Ugh. Here we go...the season can't get here fast enough.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||I noticed||
I noticed that LexCorp seemed to get their hands on General Zod's body. Seems like the rumors about Doomsday making appearances may be true, for better or worse.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||That's Jeremy Irons.||
That's Jeremy Irons. He definitely favors him in this trailer.
