A good start to finding an American's level of ignorance is by asking him what Martin Luther did and seeing if the person's response is that he was the one who had a dream, amirite?

Sure, it's sad that people don't know who Martin Luther was and instantly assume it's Martin Luther King Jr. But in reality, you can't blame them. It's like making fun of people for not knowing who Nikola Tesla or Roger Bacon were? Makes you look like an ****.

Yes, I do. I got a month of hulu for free for pinning hulu to my task bar. I already got a month free before for something else, so I got two months out of hulu for nothin'.

For a maniacal plot to rule the world, hulu sure has a lot of loop holes.

Wow. I left you with a good opportunity to say that, and you say it like that. "This is Sparta." Wow. Way to show me. I feel the emotions. "This is Sparta." Ok, thanks. I feel like someone asked you "Hey, where are we?" Not some Persian person saying "This is madness!" To which the reply would be something like, "Madness? This... Is... SPARTAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!"

Yeah, but most people would just assume you meant Martin Luther King, because hes the more common one, despite their knowing of both, so they dont come off as a smartass at what very well may be an overlooking of kingship

Wait. I think that if they mention "Martin Luther," without the addition of the word "King" to the end of it, chances are they actually are talking about the reformer.

I actually had to say "American" because the United States is the most familiar with Martin Luther King, Jr. I assume other countries would think of Martin Luther before they thought of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Yes I considered that but I would think MLK Jr. is a pretty iconic figure, even in non-American countries. Besides the fact that Martin Luther was 400 years ago.

Well, this is where MY ignorance comes into play. (You see, this post is not in any way supposed to be my way of saying I am smarter than others.) Now, I am not sure whether or not students in other countries actually are taught too much about Martin Luther King, Jr.

Because Martin Luther King Jr. is more well known to Americans.

I know a lot of people that would just assume you're shortening MLKJ. If you specified the white one, more people would know what you're talking about.
