Look, this isn't the site for grand political statements. It's more a place to look at how Martin Luther King, Jr., continues to manifest in the pop-cultural consciousness.

In this video, Key & Peele simultaneously exalt him to Gandhi status and make fun - a very tricky balance to maintain, and one I don't envy them on. But the best comedy is rarely about playing it safe. In a weird way, I think they keep the dream of equality alive.
