443-452(2:32) Bobby Kennedy (4/4/68, Campaign Stop in Indianapolis) Announces the assassination of MLK.
The legacy of Martin Luther King?   For me, it comes down to the fact that the moral trumps the legal, or that the sacred trumps the secular, that is, the superiority of the natural moral law over that of the positive law.  Nature is above and outside of the law.  The point can be surfaced in the question, Why was slavery or racism legal yet "wrong"?  If you agree that a law can be immoral, then you are a believer in the natural moral law.  From this, the point must also be made that America ought to be multiethnic but not multicultural, for our culture is that built upon the Judeo-Christian values lying beneath the Declaration.  The Declaration is the "why" of government, and our Constitution is the "how."
