T his writer and some of his fellow columnists in the have mentioned the words and life of Martin Luther King even when it was not his birthday. For instance, in the article, Some Filipinos Need to Stop "Reinventing" Rizal (As Updated),  I wrote,  “Perhaps we must just tell Mainstream America and the world at large my ‘copyrighted’ (sic) line of introducing the Philippines' foremost national hero: ‘Before there was Mahatma Gandhi, before there was Martin Luther King, there was a Filipino man of peace and his name was Jose Rizal. He became the Philippines' foremost national hero. Yes, foremost is the word because there were hundreds of other Filipino national heroes who were contemporaries of Rizal . . .’"

Our columnist, Jesse Jose, mentioned Dr. King in this piece, Farewell, Falwell . . . Paul and Alberto, too (by Jesse Jose in Columns / A Cup O' Kapeng Barako)

Our guest columnist, Dr. Emie Breyer, also mentioned Dr. King in her article,

More Updates from Dr. Emie Breyer, the Fil-Am Professor Suing the Georgia State U for Discrimination (by Dr. Emie Breyer (As Updated on Feb. 3, 2008) in Communities / Civil Rights)


Our webmaster, Allan Albert, gathered four of Dr. King’s “quotable quotes” and published them in this website:


I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant. (Quotes)



It may well be that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition is not the glaring noisiness of the so-called bad people, but the appalling silence of the so-called good people. (Quotes)



Our nation must undergo a radical revolution of values beginning with a shift from a "thing-oriented" society to a "person-oriented" society. (Quotes)



The war is but a symptom of a far deeper malady within the American spirit. In the words of the late John F. Kennedy, Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable. (Quotes)

This writer mentioned also Dr. King in these articles that reader may like to read again by clicking on these hyperlinks:


It Is Time to Reinvent the Filipino Presence in America and Build Philippine Centers

             I wrote: “In 1993 on the occasion of the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, I lifted a line from his famous ‘I have a dream’ speech and paraphrased it. I wrote, ‘I hope that history shall judge Filipino Americans by the content of their character and not by the color of their tuxedos or party gowns.’”
