"There is nothing more dangerous than to build a society, with a large segment of people in that society, who feel that they have no stake in it; who feel that they have nothing to lose. People who have a stake in their society, protect that society, but when they don’t ‘own’ it, they want to destroy it.”
One can only wonder whether King's statement, which was made with African Americans in mind, applies to immigrants in the modrn United States.
Ruth Robson on the Constitutional Law Prof blog has a nice post on King Day.
