“Dragon” is such a vague category of creature with such a ridiculous diversity of bauplans. It doesn’t matter how big it is or how many legs it has or whether it has wings or not: you can call it a dragon if it is kind of snakey, and/or breathes fire (virtually anything that can breathe fire has the potential to qualify as a dragon).

Case in point, look at all these different things that are dragons:

image

By the same token we haven’t examined whether “unicorn” can be as broad a category as “dragon.” A lot of creatures across many cultures have been called unicorns, and are described as being shaped variously like horses, goats, deer, and cattle, among other things.

image

White unicorns are overrepresented in media, but unicorns can be any color. Winged unicorns are not as popular but are just as qualified. Look at this powerful, oxlike winged unicorn from the Apadana in Iran next to its fellow winged unicorn Twilight Sparkle.

image

Unicorns do generally seem to be ungulates. Which raises the question: is any one-horned ungulate a unicorn? How about a rhinoceros? Some rhinos have a single horn. The scientific name of the Indian rhinoceros is even Rhinoceros unicornis. Since unicorn literally just means “one horn,” I think a rhinoceros with a single horn is definitely a unicorn, and therefore the extinct elasmotherium is a unicorn.

image

Qilin (麒麟) may or may not be ungulates but they are often considered unicorns despite being very scaly. And since term “unicorn” does literally just mean “one horn” … why stop there ……. if unicorns can be scaly, huge, and extinct, is centrosaurus a unicorn? I think centrosaurus can be a unicorn if it wants to be a unicorn. It may not have hooves, but some qilin don’t have hooves, either.

Fuck it, you know what? Unicorn.

Interesting how nowhere in that letter or that gif (both out of context and misrepresented in your usage, but whatever) did he say “yeah, burn the fucking city to the ground.” No where in those did he say “we should in fact go around burning things and hurting people”. No where do they say “we have the right to riot and destroy things if we are unheard.” I’m also pretty sure he never said “burn down the neighborhood and businesses and smash cars of completely innocent, unrelated people and make them feel unsafe in their own community.” He never even said “yeah, just fucking attack the police.”

All alkmie said was “he would have done it differently.” And, considering that MLK advocated for peaceful protests. That in that very letter you’re using out of context he only ever said that you shouldn’t condemn the protests because of a following riot (“In your statement you asserted that our actions, even though peaceful, must be condemned because they precipitate violence.”) and in fact repeatedly condemned rioting, I have to think that yeah, he probably would have done it differently instead of being violent barbarians who rely on riots as the first response instead of the last. Which, congrats, he would possibly consider you more frustrating than the KKK because of your shallow understanding despite (supposed) good will, as shown in your own little snippet.

Also he hated communists and considered them evil. I have no idea if that’s really relevant to you since I have no idea who the fuck you are, but considering what website I’m on, I feel like it’s a pretty good bet it is.

Whether or not MLK Jr did or did not say that line from the gif, the OP of the post linked almost intentionally misconstrued the meaning behind that letter, which had more to do with the platitudes from white people who claimed to support Civil Rights but just sat and watched peaceful protests turn into police brutality and even blamed black people for fighting back against being attacked and dehumanised. And thinking he supported riots, which he completely was against, to counter someone thinking he would do differently over over lead to the damage of that patrol car in the LA protest is disingenuous. His understanding that black protesters were not creating the riots in his day did not mean he ever supported rioters.

In fact, everyone should rewatch the whole interview this quote came from because not more than 50 seconds after the gif quote, he said this:

I would hope that we can avoid riots because riots self-defeating and socially destructive.

To be clear, George Floyd deserve justice and the men responsible for his death. But smearing the efforts of this great man to justify rioters who don’t care about that justice is wrong. And no, I am not including protesters who become rioters when the police intentionally create a riot, but I’ll be damned if that distinction should be ignored.

(I tried responding to OP directly but am apparently blocked and unable to do so, however this response deserves some light as well.)
