    MLK spoke out in the Confederate South. That's a death sentence for a Black man. I'm surprised the hit didn't come a few years earlier. That it didn't suggests to me he had protection that seems to have been pulled in '68.

    My guess is he pissed off someone important. That he was killed less than three months before RFK may be a clue.

    Fearing that this would become public knowledge and discredit King and thus the movement ... other leaders among the black community conspired to have him assassinated and martyred.
    That's very interesting. I am aware of credible allegations of MLK's infidelity, something that sadly is not that uncommon in the general population, although nothing credible I've seen (that s to say excluding white supremacy group website) suggests he was a serial adulterer. However, I've never heard black civil right leaders conspired to have him killed and even looked for a references and can't find anything at all that supports that claim. I realize, when we use the word theory we're acknowledging its not a proven fact but usually there's at least some supporting evidence that makes it at least plausible. Are you simply offering theorizing your own theory here or are there some sources you can post to back up that theory?

    According to Hoover's FBI spy files on MLK, it does seem that he was a serial adulterer. And, yes, I am just throwing out a theory/idea
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.
