Invited to Birmingham, King had come to help injustice. He already knew on his way there that many will treat him wrong because of the color of his skin, not by personality.

When he first started being the leader and was in a deep hole with the whole Independence fixing he delt with alot of racial marks and slurs for his black skin, but he wasn’t the only one saying those things.
