The issues of Martin Luther King Jr. Day are relevant all year round. The host of The Daily Show spoke to the daughter of Martin Luther King about how her father's principles are often misrepresented.
Noah said that in his lifetime, he saw his father go from being hated in America to now being one of the most beloved men in America, but it was not because he changed, but because people have changed what he stood for.
King said that he never heard it put that way. We have an affinity for dead and deceased leaders. When they're no longer with us, they're more comfortable because they don't have the same power. It's like good and bad. People want to find the easy, comfortable part of the revolutionary thing. I agree with you that we have to continue to teach the whole King because that has happened.
