The Interview the BBC and Bankers in the UK don’t Want You To See

Darcus Howe interviewed about the riots by BBC News reporter Fiona Armstrong. The BBC Reporter’s attempt at corporate censorship are unsuccessful and Mr. Howe lays down why people are rioting in London.

“When you cut the facilities, slash jobs, abuse power, discriminate, drive people deeper into poverty and shoot people dead whilst refusing to provide answers or justice the people will rise up and express their anger and frustration if you refuse to hear their cries. A riot is the language of the unheard” — Martin Luther King

Martin Luther King You Can’t Murder Murder

Apparently the quote:

I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that. Is a quote attributed to Martin Luther King, but the source of it can’t be found, so it is uncertain if he actually said it. So another quote has been found that communicates the same message and may the source of the above.

The below quote is from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop” speech:

“I’m concerned about a better world. I’m concerned about justice; I’m concerned about brotherhood; I’m concerned about truth. And when one is concerned about that, he can never advocate violence. For through violence you may murder a murderer, but you can’t murder murder. Through violence you may murder a liar, but you can’t establish truth. Through violence you may murder a hater, but you can’t murder hate through violence. Darkness cannot put out darkness; only light can do that.”

— Martin Luther King, Jr.
