University of Chicago historian of theology W. Clark Gilpin offers a quote from Dr. Martin Luther King that's still relevant, by way of the University of Chicago magazine's Uchiblogo: "There's something strangely inconsistent about a nation and a press that will praise you when you say, 'Be nonviolent toward [Selma, Alabama, Sheriff] Jim Clark,' but will curse and damn you when you say, 'Be nonviolent toward little brown Vietnamese children.'"
