It's true, if you even just read the actual text of his "I have a dream" speech he talks about socialism in there.

But, he was very different from the leftists of today. It seems to me like he was an idealist who thought socialism was part of how people could come together and overcome racial barriers. I don't think he was correct about this--we're seeing now where it actually leads--but he was trying to create peace and not division. So he had his good points and bad points.
