"Let us keep the issues where they are. The issue is injustice…. Now we’ve got to keep attention on that. That’s always the problem with a little violence. You know what happened the other day and the press dealt only with the window-breaking. I read the articles. They very seldom got around to mentioning the fact that one thousand, three hundred sanitation workers were on strike, and that Memphis is not being fair to them, and that Mayor Loeb is in dire need of a doctor. They didn’t get around to that."

–Martin Luther King Jr., April 3, 1968
