As we embrace the fierce urgency of now, love requires that, in the words of my father, “we must FOREVER conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline.” Dignity and discipline must be constant, consistent and unrelenting. Protest, we MUST. But we must protest with dignity and discipline. This keeps us rooted in love, focused on the ultimate goal, and committed to noncooperation with evil.
I think America must see that riots do not develop out of thin air. Certain conditions continue to exist in our society which must be condemned as vigorously as we condemn riots. But in the final analysis, a riot is the language of the unheard....And so in a real sense our nation’s summers of riots are caused by our nation’s winters of delay. And as long as America postpones justice, we stand in the position of having these recurrences of violence and riots over and over again. Social justice and progress are the absolute guarantors of riot prevention.
