Commodifying MLK

"You think it's funny, turning rebellion into money."

--The Clash

America, being a capitalist society, is very good at taking people or ideas that are good and true and meaningful, like Civil Rights icon Martin Luther King Jr, and turning them into a product, or a means to make money, like in this ad:


"I have a dream, that one day all people will be able to purchase low-cost mattresses."
