Martin Luther King Jr.
“Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.” Martin Luther King, Jr.
King, Martin L., Jr, "Strength to Love", Fortress Press, 1963, Thurs., 19 March, 2015
This quote comes from the book that MLK Jr. had written in 1963 about racial segregation, and using things such as nonviolence protests and not using force while fighting for freedom.
This quote explains that people only have their own opinion and it doesn't matter it won't change their mind. Back in the time where there was hard segregation there was what seemed like half of the United States was stubborn about their opinions about another race. The quote is hinting that if a person thinks that they are better than someone else because that person is a different race you are viewing life in the wrong point of view.
- The main message that this quote is trying to say is that be an open minded person and know what is truly right
