Martin Luther King Jr.
Respect. If you've never chilled with me at a hotel for a race weekend or at my house randomly early in the morning this will be news to your ears but its true shit. I listen to a few things usually daily and MLK Jr Speeches, Malcolm X, Jim Jones, Mos Def, and a few other people are usually my regulars. Its nothing too crazy but just a few well spoken people IMO that really motivate me for different reasons. Being that today is MLK day across the world it's kinda cool to hear the speeches I listen to regularly getting played here and there around town and just overall awareness of a great person. I challenge you to instead of just having a 1 day celebration try and learn a little something today about a truly great person who ultimately gave his life for the better of not only the African American race but the USA in general. Alot of people think that MLK was just a "black" revolutionary figure but you can learn alot with technology these days and read up and see if some of the different views he was putting out and some of the rallies he was involved in arent still hot topics today for all americans. Much respect and love to a great individual, may we all strive to be just a percentage of how great you really were.
