“- Um dia, um marciano sábio vem à terra para ensinar umas coisinhas às pessoas - começo.
- Um marciano? De que tamanho?
-Oh, mais ou menos um metro e noventa.
-Como é que se chama?
- Marciano Luther King.
(...)
- Era um marciano muito simpatico, o senhor King. Era parecido connosco, nariz, boca, cabelo na cabeça, mas algumas pessoas olhavam para ele de maneira estranha e, bem às vezes acho que as pessoas eram mesmo más.
(...)
- Porquê Aibee? Porque eram maus para ele?
- Porque ele era verde.”

Stewart Stafford
“The modern world is the opposite of the aspiration expressed in Doctor Martin Luther King's 'I Have A Dream' speech. In that speech, Doctor King stated his ideal vision of a future where his children would be judged not 'by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.' There is an even-greater obsession with race today and the external packaging we come in. Content of character is secondary, if not completely irrelevant.”
Stewart Stafford

“This morning Reverend [Martin Luther] King invited me to attend a meeting of the protest committee. The committee decided not to hold any more mass meetings but only prayer meetings. This was to emphasize the moral nature of the struggle. The meetings will center around five prayers:

A prayer for the success of the meeting.

A prayer for strength of spirit to carry on nonviolently.

A prayer for strength of body to walk for freedom.

A prayer for those who oppose us.

A prayer that all men may become brothers to live in justice and equality.”
