MLK Commentary Worth Listening To

I heard the most eloquent commentary on NPR today explaining the comments of Senator Clinton and Mayor Nagin on MLK Day. Robert Franklin, a professor of theology at Emory University in Atlanta, put the comments into the context of black religious speech and explained that they were not nearly as divisive and insensitive as some are saying.

I cannot print the transcript, but you can listen to it by following this link.

I highly recommend it.
