    Link: The Origin Of The Fake MLK Jr. Quote - On Monday, all of Facebook was reposting a quote by Martin Luther King about the Osama death. But everyone was wrong.

    that first part isnt in quotations, and the second part is an actual MLJjr quote. I think the problem here is a miss-reading and not a miss-quoting.

    The pic in the link doesn`t explain anything and following the link just kind of goes back on itself with the updates.

    Well, obviously she separated her own words from MLK Jr. One of her dumb friends mashed their words together by moving a quotation mark.

    Why the crap did this go viral?

    For those that don`t understand, if this is really the origin, what happened is this person posted her own thoughts and then quoted MLKJr at the end. Someone copied and pasted Jessica`s thoughts along with MLKJr and took out the quotes, and contributed all of it to MLKJr. Thus creating a fake quote by MLKJr.

    I agree with techgeek07. I didn`t know anything about this viral quote when I first saw it. I had to go look it up. Try to use better descriptions.

    I feel this is a win/win for this Jessica girl. If it was a MLK quote, then so be it. But now it`s known not to be; so it`s just a good quote she made up? If I were her I`d feel even more flattered.

    Um, this posting seems weird. The quote IS MISTAKEN ok? What these fools are babbling about is beyond me.
    Perhaps more is at the tiny "more on this story" link?
    HERE is a link which I submitted, which actually SHOWS how MLK was misquoted or otherwise didn`t actually "say" what so many are blindly repeating.

    The first sentence is her personal feelings, the quote starts on the second line. It is already on snopes.com

    I don`t see the point of this. Who cares if MLK didn`t say it? That doesn`t diminish it`s validity.

    I don`t understand, the quote clearly starts at the correct place. Everything inside the quotes is what Martin Luther King Jr actually said. Everything outside the quotes is not what he said. That`s what quotation marks are.

    Apparently we shouldn`t have killed Osama because now we`re somehow more likely to be attacked than before he was killed. So if we had just left him alone we`d all be a lot safer, right? Heck, maybe shouldn`t have even gone after him to begin with, he totally wasn`t a threat or anything.
