Read the excerpt from Dr. Martin Luther King's "Letter from Birmingham Jail."

I have tried to stand between these two forces, saying that we need emulate neither the "do nothingism" of the complacent nor the hatred and despair of the black nationalist.

How does King support this claim?

by listing churches who support his nonviolent stand

by describing nonviolent direct action as a peaceful middle ground

by urging church leaders to abandon their "do nothing" approaches

by insisting that complacency is preferable to hatred and violence

    King supports his Claim by making the comparisson of two complete opposites.

    The first posture is the "do nothingism" where people is completely passive on what's happening around them, and then he metions the "hatred adn despair of black nationalist"

    So the answer is the second one: by describing nonviolent direct action as a peaceful middle ground.

    He gives those words of examples as whtat he thinks shouldn't be done in his movement, but standing right in the middle of these complete opposites.
