Why he might be annoying:

    The F.B.I. recorded that he cheated on his wife.
    He was a plagarist.
    His fight for civil rights may have been a selfish one in that it only focused on African-Americans.
    His initials MLK makes you think of milk.
    His public speaking abilities didn't develop until later in his life.

Why he might not be annoying:

    He believed in non-violent protest to earn civil rights for all people.
    He said: 'Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.
    Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.'
    He was unfairly arrested for driving 30 MPH in a 25 MPH zone (January 26, 1956).
    He was arrested when demonstrating for civil rights in Birmingham (April 1963).
    A quarter of a million people went to the Lincoln Memorial to hear Martin Luther King's 'I Have a Dream Speech' (August 28, 1963).
    I have a dream that one day the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.
    I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
    I have a dream today.
    I have a dream that one day little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and girls and walk together as sisters and brothers.
    I have a dream today.
    Let freedom ring.
    Let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city we will be able to speed up that day when all of God´s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentles, Protestants and Catholics will be able to join hands and sing in the words of that old Negro Spiritual 'Free at last! Free at last: Thank God almighty, we are free at last!'
