    Let's reverse Trump's situation a bit.

    If MLK had stood up to a podium and said, "A lot of these police officers are KKK in uniform. We're going to ban these cops (lawyers, judges, etc) from policing Black neighborhoods, until we figure out what's going on,"

    What do you think would've happened? ‪#‎TrumpKKK‬

    And we probably wouldn't be quoting Martin Luther King Jr. these days?

    This has been done. I'm not up on my Black History but maybe you want to look into the...

    ...Black Panthers? [probably the most appropriate answer to your question as they were an attempt for armed self-defence against cops.]

    ...or Malcolm X? [he certianly said things along the lines your talking about.]

    MLK said a lot of politically incorrect things that are rarely quoted today. He's been whitewashed. Today he's a teddy bear that all sides support.
    Politically inconvenient positions have a way of being edited out of history.

    So when was Amerika great, and what was great about it?
