Dr. King Died for Our Freedom, Now Honda Uses Him to Sell Cars

Dr. King Died for Our Freedom, Now Honda Uses Him to Sell Cars

By: Dr. Samori Swygert

I was at Outback Steakhouse watching Detroit and Washington battle it out.  I took a bite of my Blooming Onion and my jaw dropped.  Honda had a commercial called the MLK DRIVEAWAY.  The sale is good until January 20th

This truly truly bothers me.  Does capitalism have any regard for culture, respect, honor, death, and struggle?

Everything is not for sale!  This is truly distasteful.  What does a car have to do with Dr. King’s legacy and sacrifice and the individuals that suffered in the Civil Rights Era?

I mean corporate America is prostituting and pimping  Rev. King for there aggrandizement.  I don’t want to say that they’re not giving any money to the MLK  Foundation or his family because I haven’t done the research, but this is just cheap, sleazy, and distasteful.

Honda should apologize.  Dr. King was not assassinated for auto sales.  He was murdered for fighting for the poor, disenfranchised, discriminated, politically, socially, and economically depressed African Americans.

Capitalists exploiting and piggybacking our Martyr for revenue! Have you no shame?

What do you think?  Is Honda being inconsiderate?
