MLK, YouTube, Google Video

Lots of folks are pointing to the 18 minute video of Dr. King's speech during the 1963 March on Washington. It is available on places such as YouTube and Google Video. It is great that it is available. The unfortunate thing is that every idiot with a keyboard has left a hateful or racist comment on the video pages. Luckily Google allows you to download the video file. I plan to share it with my students off of one of our internal pages, without the comments. Both YouTube and Google Video have policies on offensive materials. I wish it extended to comments on their pages.
