Dr. Alveda King, Niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Speaks Out About the Zimmerman Verdict and Her Late Uncle

Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., spoke out about the Zimmerman verdict and ensuing racial battle on the Andrea Tantaros radio show on Tuesday. 

Besides rejecting the re-imaging of her uncle Martin Luther King Jr., which tries to make him look like Trayvon Martin and presume he would be defending him, she emphatically stated that not only would he not wear a hoodie, but neither would he be wearing sagging pants.

Inforwars further reports:

Dr. King also said that people need to think with grace rather than emotions in reference to the image and the overall backlash to the George Zimmerman verdict.
There was a reasonable doubt in that case,” she said. “So the case went the ways of the laws of this land, but now we need to go further and look at the human heart.”
Dr. King also called out the mongers in the media and elsewhere who are trying to spin the verdict into racial tensions between Caucasians and African-Americans.
“As far as trying to fit the Caucasians against African-Americans, Mr. Zimmerman is a Hispanic,” she said. “Although we are one blood, one human family, one human race, there’s a lot of deception and emotion in these things that are being spurred.
End quote.
She went on to say that even when her uncle was assassinated in 1968, it wasn't fair to blame it on Caucasians, although that was her first reaction back then.  King's father told her it wasn't white people who killed King, but the devil. It was from that moment that Alveda learned how to react to violent tragedies. “We answer with reason,” she said. “We answer with sanity.”
That's exactly right. And that is what is utterly lacking with these hoodlums who run around rioting and bait with racism to stir up people's undue anger, even in the face of facts. Reasonableness and sanity has been lost.
Self-imposed justice is no justice.
