    He rattled the establishment's cage. People in power in corporations and politics dont really like change.

    Racist hate filled white guy was racist and hate filled?

    A more provocative question would be why was Malcom X killed?

    Re: why do you think MLK was killed ?

    MLK was killed during a time of racial turmoil, where blacks were daring to demand equality and a rather significant segment of the white population had no intention to give that to them. Assassinating opposition leaders, be they presidents, presidential candidates, or civil rights leaders, was a quick way to deal with the situation. I'm frankly surprised that more black civil rights leaders weren't murdered during the chaos of those days.

    He was assassinated because he was a high-profile black man who fought for equality.

    Goodness. A rather significant segment of the white population had no intention of giving blacks equality? I didn't know that.
