The first Martin Luther King Jr. holiday of Donald Trump's presidency is taking place as he publicly denies being racist, in the wake of disparaging comments about African nations and Haiti. (Trump has denied making the remarks.) For African-Americans particularly, the Associated Press reports, Trump's latest insult felt like whiplash. Barely a year ago, America's first black president, @barackobama, marked his final King Day in office with his usual community service; now, his successor is presiding over a racial backlash that the U.S. has hardly seen in more than a generation. Activists, religious leaders and scholars say this is the type of thing that puts Trump's presidency in direct conflict with the legacy of King, who was assassinated April 4, 1968, while trying to make American society more inclusive. King's daughter, Bernice King, said the lesson of nonviolence is to focus on defeating injustice, not individuals, the AP adds, and that her father's life and work should be applied to the current moment. "Trump's election could be a blessing in disguise," Bernice King said. "This is the opportunity for America to correct itself." Video source: Onyx Media, LLC/@gettyimages #MLKDay
