It was recently Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and some may have noticed the US empire and its racist, capitalist, and imperialist cheerleaders were also cheerleading for Dr. King. If this made you angry, confused, or just curious as to what Dr. King’s legacy actually is in the context of US empire, you’re in the right place. Eleanor Goldfield hosts this week’s program and begins by speaking with Jacqueline Luqman to discuss Dr. King’s real legacy, what got him killed, what’s missing from the story, and how we can truly honor Dr. King. Next, Setareh Ghandehari from Detention Watch Network joins the show to walk listeners through the Biden administration’s “updates” to immigration policy, which as Setareh points out, are hardly updates but rather a continuation of right-wing, xenophobic, anti-immigrant and also failed policies that will cause immeasurable harm to thousands. All this and more coming up now on this week’s Project Censored Show.
