The government will remove the paraphrased quotation “I was a drum major for justice, peace and righteousness” from Washington’s Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial after many complained the out-of-context words made the civil rights leader sound arrogant. What do you think?
“This would never have happened to a statue of a white guy.”

“If King didn’t want his words to be taken out of context, he never should have said them in the first place.”

“If nobody wants to take credit for the old quote, you can feel free to attribute it to me.”
