Al Sharpton To Protest Michigan Emergency Takeover Law

Sharpton honors the memory of MLKjr. by fighting against tyranny in Michigan:

The Rev. Al Sharpton and others say they plan a demonstration outside the gated community where Republican Gov. Rick Snyder lives to protest what they say is a racially biased law that makes it easier for Michigan to take over financially struggling communities and school districts.

The protest is scheduled on Martin Luther King Day at Snyder's home in Washtenaw County's Superior Township, near Ann Arbor. The protesters plan to march Monday afternoon to a gatehouse outside the private subdivision that includes the governor's home.

Sharpton and U.S. Rep. John Conyers talked about the protest Sunday at a news at a Detroit church.
