Letter from a Birmingham jail Mlk jr

"Since you have been influenced by the argument of 'outsiders coming in.'" MLK is talking about how he is alone because he is from Atlanta instead of Birmingham.
"Why direct action, why sit-ins, marches, and so forth? Isn't negotiation a better path?" MLK thinks that negotiations are what he wants the crowd of people to talk about. He wants people on the line to change their minds about him and his ways.
"Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed." MLK is basically saying, you want freedom and respect, ask and give it yourself.
