Martin Luther King, Jr.: Our Nation Was Born In Genocide

 We cannot heal from that which we deny.
May there be healing now. May we be that brave
and care that much.

- Molly

Our nation was born in genocide.… We are perhaps the only nation which tried as a matter of national policy to wipe out its indigenous population. Moreover, we elevated that tragic experience into a noble crusade. Indeed, even today we have not permitted ourselves to reject or feel remorse for this shameful episode. 

— Martin Luther King Jr.
