    Default George Lucas donates a cool million to the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Foundation

    21/10/05 : LUCAS DONATES $1 MILLION TO MARTIN LUTHER KING MEMORIAL



    Generous STAR WARS director GEORGE LUCAS has given $1 million (GBP560,000) to help build a statue of US civil rights leader DR MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.

    The film-maker has also agreed to co-host a fund-raising "Dream Dinner" in San Francisco on 19 November (05) alongside fellow supporters CARLOS and DEBORAH SANTANA, VICTOR MACFARLANE and BONNIE FISHER and BORIS DRAMOV.

    The memorial will be based in US capital Washington DC, and will cost an estimated $100 million (GBP56 million).

    Fellow major contributor SHEILA JOHNSON says, "This generous contribution from George Lucas will help honour the principles for which Dr King stood: justice, hope, and freedom for all. By making this contribution and co-hosting the San Francisco Dream Dinner, Mr Lucas adds to the tremendous momentum and support the MLK National Memorial Foundation has received."

    King Jr was assassinated in 1968.

    It's because he wants to pretend he's down with black
    people...of whom there are about 2 in the entire Star
    Wars galaxy...

    A statue does not cost $100 million. Even a big monument
    like the Vietnam memorial doesn't cost that much.

    You guys are being screwed big-time. The NAACP and other
    black action groups are going to suck up most of that money
    and send it to a Swiss bank account.

    It's worse than Indonesia.

    Lays it on pretty thick, frankly.
