Letter From Birmingham Jail

It's a doosy

in kings response he writes, "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. "

What are the implications of this statement for all people in relation to social injustices? Do you believe he is right? Why or why not?

King was able to see beyond the cause and effect of the present. An injustice to one group plants the seeds for injustice to another. Soon the rank soil of hate and injustice grows more weeds. Mainstream society finds it easier to discriminate against all kinds of people that are "different". King was a wise man who knew that we are all connected in this world.
