The image on the left is an archive of the home page from the King Center, a nonprofit center that exhibits memorabilia and promotes Dr. King’s teachings. The website on the right is a page sponsored by Stormfront, a white supremacist group, made to look like the King Center’s page.

Check them when you are making an argument to make sure your source isn’t biased.
