Who is China's Martin Luther King Jr.?

On this Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we remember...

..."the world's most average man." [China Daily Show]

POSTSCRIPT: "I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for their minds, and dignity, equality and freedom for their spirits. I believe that what self-centered men have torn down men other-centered can build up..." --MLK Jr., Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech

It should still somewhat break all our hearts that had King not been assassinated, he might have gone on to become one of the greatest champions of poverty relief in the world, to say nothing of general global peace.
