Run The Jewels’ Killer Mike penned an op-ed for Okayplayer in honor of Martin Luther King; no doubt the site’s founder ?uestlove echoes his plea/inquiry to citizens, “Will you continue where Martin left off?” Read the full essay at the site.

Writes Mike, “Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Revolutionary, simple and plain. He died a murder victim because he had the audacity to challenge a war machine bent on keeping people impoverished and men and woman dying for an illegal war… Martin was a young father who at the threat of death dared to push forward on behalf of all humanity against the global reign of America and her allies’ evil, perpetrated through war…. Will you continue where Martin left off? Will you join other protestors in the streets to end police policy that targets and kills blacks and darker people globally?”
