I bid you all adieu, gentlemen (that's not sexist, is it?).

Here are some other quotes from Martin Luther King Jr. that you may find interesting.

"A society that has done something special against the Negro for hundreds of years must now do something special for the Negro""

Whenever the issue of compensatory treatment for the Negro is raised, some of our friends recoil in horror. The Negro should be granted equality, they agree; but he should ask nothing more. On the surface, this appears reasonable, but it is not realistic."

Please refrain from denigrating the man's legacy by twisting his words to support a discriminatory status quo. He'd be sickened by it.
