Volunteers mark MLK Day of Service in Philadelphia

MLK on the Mike Douglas show

After the Cavaliers' shootaround ahead of their marquee matchup with the Warriors on Martin Luther King Jr.

Wray said "lack of equal opportunity hurts all of us, discrimination against one person hurts the whole community and hate against one becomes hate against all". "Especially as Americans because we believe, we all know and we all believe, this is the greatest country in the world".

James said this year's holiday is especially important in light of how Trump has handled current race relations as President.

During the civil rights movement, King directly confronted and exposed the ills of racism, and led a movement that pressured the American government to end legalized segregation.

James credited the National Basketball Association for keeping its traditional of a full slate of games on MLK Day as a tribute "for a man who stood for more than himself".


"We were going in the right direction, but our president is trying to turn this country around to the way it used to be", Johnson said.

"We can't allow that to stop us from continuing to be together and preach the right word of living and loving and laughing and things of that nature". "When I think of President Trump and the direction that he's going in, it reminds me of early Nazi Germany".

To mark King's 89th birthday, a wreath laying also took place during the ceremony, which included remarks from Department of Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, FBI Director Christopher Wray and King's son, Martin Luther King III. James has visited the site of King's slaying, calling the experience "very eerie and powerful".

Purdue and another Republican participant, Senator Tom Cotton, had said previously they did not specifically recall Trump making the comments attributed to him. "We fight back. And no matter what they throw at us, nevertheless, we persist". Be able to live for something that's more than you as an individual. "The conversation about who we are as Americans has shifted and given in to a kind of xenophobia that makes it hard to discuss issues that affect all Americans".
