Enacting Dr. King’s ‘Boycott Agenda’ Today

The day before he was killed, in his famous “Mountaintop” speech, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. called for a boycott of Coca-Cola and Wonder Bread. Here’s what he said:

We don’t have to argue with anybody. We don’t have to curse and go around acting bad with our words. We don’t need any bricks and bottles. We don’t need any Molotov cocktails. We just need to go around to these stores, and to these massive industries in our country, and say, “God sent us by here, to say to you that you’re not treating his children right. And we’ve come by here to ask you to make the first item on your agenda fair treatment, where God’s children are concerned. Now, if you are not prepared to do that, we do have an agenda that we must follow. And our agenda calls for withdrawing economic support from you.”

They’re still not treating the children right. This time it’s the foundations built on profits from Microsoft and WalMart, among others. It’s time to put Dr. King’s agenda in motion.
