There are plenty of political posts circulating on Facebook, but when the daughter of Civil Rights hero Martin Luther King Jr. chooses to share one of them, it's a little more attention-grabbing than your usual political rant. On Tuesday, February 7, Bernice King shared a Facebook post, whose origin is fuzzy, but since King seems to have amended it herself, she probably should receive at least partial credit for it. Here is what it said.

King's post continued with a John Lennon quote:

Keep demonstrations peaceful. In the words of John Lennon, 'When it gets down to having to use violence, then you are playing the system’s game... The only thing they don’t know how to handle is non-violence and humor.'

King's post continues with a final piece of advice, elaborating on using Trump's name less, and referring to his actions as the actions of the Republican party as a whole, saying:

Bernice King
The Republican legislators will either have to take responsibility for their association with him or stand up for what some of them don't like... Republican representatives will become very concerned about their re-elections.
