We can even find a crazy Video of Martin Luther King Educational. Bias: Who published this web site? Is there evidence of bias?

Educational Value: Why was this page put on the web? To inform? Persuade? Sell? Satire or parody? Deceive/misinform? Would you use this web page with K-12 students? Why or why not? This page could have been created just for fun and parody or maybe to confuse people and persuade them of something that it´s not reals.
