It's hard to think of a better way to commemorate the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. than by inaugurating a black president for the second time — a testament to the racial progress that King's sacrifice made possible. Making the connection even more explicit, Obama swore his oath of office on MLK's own Bible.
That's one view. Another view is that, because of Obama's use of drones or his alleged racism or divisiveness or whatever, King is probably not pleased at all about his day of recognition coinciding with the second inauguration of America's first black president.
Specifically, King is in his grave, rolling around.
I bet MLK jr is rolling in his grave having the inauguration today. Everything he stood for this president does not help support #inaug2013— Erick Lofton (@ErickLofton) January 21, 2013

MLK is rolling over in his grave, as the biggest racist in U.S. history gets sworn in on his birthday & using his bible.— Tom O'Halloran (@TPO_Hisself) January 21, 2013
Here we go again! MLK rolling in his grave, probably wondering how this usurper destroyed and distorting many things he fought so hard for!— JoJo (@2IslandJoJo) January 21, 2013
MLK is rolling over in his grave. He preached the truth of the Gospel. Obama preaches his own agenda. Big difference.— Daniel Anderson (@DTA2742) January 21, 2013

The NDAA, War on Drugs, & drone strikes. Obama would've gotten MLK's Bible sooner, but they couldn't get him to stop spinning in his grave.— Omar (@Adverse101) January 21, 2013
