As a leader in the civil rights movement, King was naturally seen as a threat by those who opposed the civil rights gains he was helping to orchestrate. Additionally, there was an anti-Communist fever in the country at the time, and King was perceived as having ties to Communist ideology.
Martin Luther King Jr. was assinated because he was talking about things that other people did not want him to talk about. Like, the Vietnam war and slavery. So the people that the only way to silence him was to kill him.

That is partially bull man. He did not talk about slavery he talked about civil rights; slavery ended 100 years prior to his civil rights advocacy.

He was a largely recognized political advocate who spread his ideologies persuasively and charismatically. He believed in civil disobedience being the way to make changes in the way America treated minorities. He was changing the whole social structure of America, that is why he was assassinated. The people that were higher up on the social scale could not have minorities getting higher up and possibly bumping them down.



Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was an advocate for civil rights of blacks in the United States during the 1950s and 1960s. Throughout history, there had been much tension between whites and blacks in the United States, especially in the South. Many sought to change this, blacks or white. Martin Luther King, Jr. was the most successful civil rights advocate, and was ultimately responsible for equal rights for everyone, regardless of race. However, some disagreed with his campaign and didn't want integration. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated because some disagreed with his beliefs and wanted to put a stop to his influence and power.
they killed martin Luther king because he was black and the people that killed him was angry with him because he was doing marches talking about equality and some people just didn't want to be equal they wanted to keep calling us negros and insulting us.
He was assassinated because some people didn't like what he was standing for. They didn't want black people to be equal with them. Some white people wanted to know that they were better than them so they killed him thinking it would stop their problems.
Because John Earls Ray (who was a white person) didn't think that was fair so he murdered Martin Luther King Jr. John Earls Ray went to jail. He died in prison in1998.
