Trending on Twitter for the celebration of the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday is an abhorrent hashtag called “White Thoughts” that is incredibly disrespectful to the civil rights leader’s message of unity and has brought out a plethora of bottom-feeding haters for absolutely no reason.

King said in his famous “I have a dream” speech: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today.” That noble sentiment was perverted into a bash-fest on Twitter.

The confusing hashtag is said to be in response to a racist individual who made vile remarks on Twitter. Actress Emma Scott was one of those who was offended and got it trending on Twitter, opening up a Pandora’s Box of hatred.

There are racial attacks all over the place pitting whites against blacks. Not only are blacks denigrated, but whites are bashed incessantly under the hashtag.

“Somebody has to find this man’s socials, school, place of employment and report him. He is being unapologetically racist with his WHOLE chest and everyone’s just letting him do it. Pls internet I beg you to do your thang #WhiteThoughts,” one individual on Twitter pleaded.

“Twitter letting a #WhiteThoughts space trend on MLK day is yet another example of what they really think of us,” one netizen declared.

Another astutely commented, “Didnt Dr. King dream of a day when people would be judged by the content of their character, not the color of their skin?
Guess this MLK Day is not the day, if #WhiteThoughts is trending on hate Twitter.”

Many felt the incitement to racial hatred using the hashtag on King’s birthday was simply monstrous. And there was plenty of hate to be found.

“‘If you won’t vote for me, you won’t vote’ #WhiteThoughts,” one leftist stated referring to Jan. 6 and their hatred for those on the right side of politics.

Another trolled, “I’m a white people who’s really tired of ignorant, racist white people’s Pile of poo #WhiteThoughts,” ascribing to all white people the actions of one unknown racist.

“#WhiteThoughts I expect nothing less than the devil himself when it comes to white racists but to see my own people talking trying to kiss a racist WM ass is so beyond pathetic yall deserve the racism at this point,” another hatefully tweeted.

A library director tweeted, “Ignorance is colorblind, but it seems most comfortable with those with power. Those with power seem to be tweeting their #WhiteThoughts a lot today. Conservatives co-opting MLK by cherry-picking quotes & claiming him as a sort of architect of their ‘post-racist’ world. Bizarre.”

“#WhiteThoughts can someone remind this man the race of like some of the most known serial killers Loudly crying face they look like u BE QUIETTTTTT,” one user demanded.

“It’s like racist white people in this space can’t live without having to mention black people and use slurs. Can’t help y’all are OBSESSED with black people, WOMEN especially Revolving hearts #WhiteThoughts,” another posted.

After a massive outcry against the racist hashtag, it is no longer trending on Twitter.

People were quickly fed up with the attacks on all sides:
