Morning Inspiration: “Let’s Get The Language Right!”

“…Somebody told a lie one day. They couched it in language. They made everything black ugly and evil; look in your dictionary and see the synonyms of the word black. It’s always something degrading and low and sinister. Look at the word white; it’s always something pure, high and clean. Well I want to get the language right tonight.  I want to get the language so right that everybody here will cry out, YES I AM BLACK AND I’M PROUD OF IT; I’M BLACK AND BEAUTIFUL!” ~Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
