I feel that sometimes people just call him a hero because he is dead. If he were alive in this lifetime don't you think people would hate him as much they do Al Sharpton and other members of the New Black Panther or NAACP?

Of course they would. They hated him enough to kill him and still today, people hate Obama because he's black. When Obama opened his twitter account as a president, the first thing that happened was - instead of people congratulating him for being the first black president - he was covered in racist comments for several day. People called him the N-word and said it's a disgrace a black person has become president etc. Don't even think racism has become weaker since Martin Luther King died. If you look at all these police shootings and riots being beaten down by police forces that don't even look like police anymore but more like the army in Iraq... that's exactly what it looked like during the civil rights' movement. Nothing has changed. Sadly.2
