On this day 50 years ago, an unarmed black man was shot to death by a white man.

If it happened today, you would probably scroll past his name on one of your social media platforms, and it would look like this:

#MartinLutherKingJr. #MLK50
When you look at the 50th anniversary of King's assassination from that perspective, it makes it pretty clear that African-Americans are still dealing with the same exact issues that we faced half a century ago.

Throughout this day, you will see people who have no idea what King actually stood for, or would have hated him if he was still alive right now, do what they love to do annually on his national holiday: misrepresent his message.
