What is happening in the United States?

Fortunately, Martin Luther King died at the right time, writes author Bill Caldwell. 

Orientering April 1968

The tragedy is not that Martin Luther King was murdered. It was just what you could expect. No, the great tragedy is that white America, with the good help of Europe, surrounds him with great words and testimonies, laurels and honors, but always with a keen gleam in their eyes, their status quo must survive.

They tied a blindfold to his eyes and led him to the place of execution. Was anyone for a moment naive enough to think that there could be a non-violent solution to the 400 year-old American race problem?

Let's look at what has been done and constantly being done to the Indians, it gives a clear indication of what the white American mentality is capable of doing. Let me pause for a moment as I write this, because I am just beginning to wonder, even though I know the answer beforehand, why does a black writer always have to explain the most conspicuous things? Part of the answer is that no matter how furious, hostile and stated he may be, he is automatically, consciously or unconsciously placed in a non-violent position because he is trying to explain the reasons behind the conflict between black and white. He is desperately trying to find an opportunity to explain the racial cancer tumor that is so deeply ingrained in the very structure of the West's culture and institutions.

Rooted racial discrimination is just as deep in Europe. . .
