The Freudian Slip is an error in speech is interpreted as occurring due to the interference of an unconscious (“dynamically repressed”) subdued wish, conflict, or train of thought guided by the ego and the rules of correct behavior, according to Wikipedia.

This is what appears to may have happened when Rev. Billy Kyles spoke some 30 years after the assassination of Dr. King. He was there that faithful day on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tenn.

You decide if this was just a a slip of the tongue, or an admission of guilt.
