Martin Luther King

"There is something wrong with capitalism. There are 40 million poor people here and one day we must ask the question, Why are there 40 million poor people in America? And when you begin to ask that question, you are raising a question about the economic system, about a broader distribution of wealth. When you ask that question, you begin to question the capitalistic economy" - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 1967
