BEHNA: USA Today Says “Whites Killed MLK”, Actually It Was One White Democrat #MLKDay

On Martin Luther King Day, USA Today published a post saying “Whites killed MLK. Now we honor him.”

Of course, honoring MLK is a good thing. What is misleading is the first part of USA Today’s headline, making it sound like all whites are somehow responsible for his tragic death. In reality, it was a white Democrat by the name of James Earl Ray who shot and killed him. Of course, they intentionally omit this in the title.

And Conservative El Sooper (@SooperMexican) on Twitter points out that the author of this article, Oliver Thomas, also wrote a previous piece claiming Sharia Law doesn’t pose a threat to America.

So perhaps instead of USA Today making generalized headlines, they should be more specific with the facts: One white, racist DEMOCRAT was responsible for the killing of MLK.
