Question: Is this true!.!.!. (about MLK) answer please!.!.!.!?
im in school right now and we're searching up facts about Martin Luther King Jr!. and one of the facts i read said this:

One of King's closest friends, Rev!. Ralph Abernathy, wrote a book in 1989 in which he talked about King's obsession with white prostitutes!. King would often use church donations to have drunken sex parties, where he would hire two to three white prostitutes, occasionally beating them brutally!. This has also been reported by the FBI agents who monitored King!. King was married with four children!.

here's the site i read that from:

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
The FBI did illegally tape him at various times being unfaithful with his wife, however the slanders about using church money is and sex parties is totally false!. Common sense would tell anyone that such an important person and viewed by many as a dangerous man would not have the privacy to do such things like that!. Such things as that wouldd have been brought out to light way before Abernathy wrote anything about MLKWww@QuestionHome@Com

Whether it's true or not, there are people who will do anything to bring anyone who's "better positioned" than them into disrepute and spread rumours which may or may not be true!. In the end the important thing is that everyone makes mistakes, but it doesn't mean they're bad people, and sometimes you need to listen to their words rather than their deeds, because they have a real message to give to others, and I think MLK did!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I really doubt that!. However I have heard repeatedly before that he was unfaithful and cheated on his wife!. (Although there's hardly any information to be found on that because people use him as such a token for the civil rights movement!.)Www@QuestionHome@Com
