ThatGuy says:
@folliclejuju I think that is Johnson, not Nixon

@noahrienks I don't think MLK was down with rioting.

And It shouldn't be an issue since this will be kinged. Amazing work Mr. Fiction.

"To shatter forever not only the barriers of law and public practice, but the walls which bound the condition of many by the color of his skin. To dissolve, as best we can, the antique enmities of the heart which diminish the holder, divide the great democracy, and do wrong — great wrong — to the children of God..." Lyndon B Johnson
