Part 1) This week you read Dr. Martin Luther Kingâ€™s â€œLetter from a Birmingham Jailâ€. In this article, he defines â€œunjustâ€ and â€œjust lawsâ€ by saying, â€œAn unjust law is a code that a numerical or power majority group compels a minority group to obey but does not make binding on itself. This is difference made legal. By the same token, a just law is a code that a majority compels a minority to follow and is willing to follow itself. This is sameness made legalâ€ (King 811).
What law–or even just rule–can you think of that fits Dr. Kingâ€™s definition of â€œunjustâ€ laws? It could be a federal, state, or local law, or it could be a rule or regulation related to some aspect of your life: school, work, commerce, housing, health care, travel, public safety, etc. Describe the law, say why you think it is unjust (according to Dr. Kingâ€™s definition), and show how this law affects your life.
