6: Interviewer: Why did you fight for peace and the end to racism? I think Martin Luther King Jr. would say: “I was treated poorly as a child. I will not let white people have more respect than me.” Interviewer: Why did you go so far, knowing the punishment? I think Martin Luther King Jr. would say: “I went so far because it’s not right to judge a person by their race. I will not let my skin color make me different. People are all the same except for our skin. I will not give up until I win.
7: I think Martin Luther King Jr. is a hero for ending racism in U.S. He went farther than anyone else could to fight off racism. He did not give up believing in himself. He is a hero for what he did. He is a hero to all African-Americans. His belief was like a flame burning in the rain, unable to go out. He did not falter in his fight for freedom, which was the end to racism in the United States. Martin Luther King Jr. will be in the hearts of his fellow Americans until the end of time. He is a one of a kind hero, above all other heroes. He should not just be recognized by Americans but by the whole world. Neil Ding
