Comments: Babbling and Conventioneering

It may not make any difference to you, but "those marching under the 'Christian leadership' banner" were probably marching as a contingent of the "Southern Christian Leadership Conference". Dr. King has been assassinated only 3 months earlier. This is not an instance of privileging some right-wing Christian identity movement.

It does not, in fact, make a difference.

It does, however, draw my attention to the fact that my use of quotation marks, which was intended to express uncertainty about the exact identity of the group, instead conveys an air of scorn.

That was not what I intended. Mea culpa.
