''Alabama" is a composition written by John Coltrane that appears on his album Live at Birdland (1963). It was written in response to the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing on September 15, 1963, an attack by the Ku Klux Klan in Birmingham, Alabama that killed four girls--Addie Mae Collins, Cynthia Wesley, Carole Robertson and Denise McNair. Coltrane's dirge was actually shaped by the cadences of the eulogy Martin Luther King delivered in the church sanctuary three days after the bombing, which was a major turning point in the movement.'' (Thanks to Greg Tate for this reference).

U.S. and European media plastered the horrific images of ISIS destruction of the ancient artworks of Iraq in the museum of Mosul. Little mentioned was the similar damage done to Iraq's museums and archeological digs in the wake of the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003. Why is it not accurate to speak of (im)moral equivalency?

Mlk 02/16/2015 "We are the criminals in the war. We have committed more war crimes almost than any nation in the world." - Martin Luther King
On February 4, 1968 Martin Luther King delivered a sermon at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta GA which he co-pastored with his father. In the sermon titled "The Drum Major Instinct" he called out U.S. ambitions to global supremacy. Ten months earlier he had delivered his denunciation of the Vietnam War at New York's Riverside Church. One year to the day after he delivered that speech and two months to the day after the Ebenezer sermon, he was assassinated. Read an excerpt from that sermon.
