  1. Don’t know why you would say alleged affairs, they’re not alleged at this point. I wouldn’t take the FBI’s sole word on it, but read [Ralph David Abernathy’s book](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ralph_Abernathy), and he wouldn’t lie to make MLK Jr look bad. He was a man who had some flaws, we don’t need to pretend he didn’t. That doesn’t change what he did for civil rights, his message, and what he accomplished.

  2. I honestly didn’t believe it the first time because it sounded like an edgy 4chan user but yeah it actually is from them.

    As to why we don’t teach it it’s the same reason we are pushing to collect books we don’t like or don’t teach CRT it makes certain groups look bad and they want to stop it.
