Letter from a Birmingham Jail I believe that the pastors had every right to write Dr King a letter about their concerns but in no way did they have to come down on him about his actions I feel that Dr King was right in those situations and he even tells the pastors his methods which seem ethical in my sense Dr King firsts explains to the pastors hes reasoning for being in Birmingham and that was because they had asked him to help out and because he had organizational ties in Alabama He tells that pastors that there is injustice in Birmingham and he cant just sit back and let this happen He states to the pastors that Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere The pastors told him they thought his actions were too extreme but Dr King lists the four steps of his nonviolent campaign These four steps are collection of the facts negotiation self-purification and finally direct action These steps seem reasonable and all though things didnt work the way he would have liked them they are steps that dont promote violence I dont think Dr King acted irresponsibly in that situation in a time of racism and how the Negroes where treated it wasnt Dr Kings fault Dr King went through all the steps and nothing really happen At one point in time he was able to talk to some city leaders about removing humiliating signs and as he states as some weeks and months went by we realized that we were victims of a broken promise These humiliating signs were either put back up or no one took them down in the first place The pastors criticize King and his associates that the action they made was untimely and King responds back with waiting for someone to do something would take forever He questioned the pastors how long will we tell our children that they cant eat
