Let me get this straight? The Presidential office has been in effect for 222 years and Obama is the first NON-WHITE to have EVER held the office. Since he did win it couldn't have possibly have been on merit but because of his being brown?
I have a dream of a country that would never subjugate an entire race of people into slavery and perpetuate the process for over 300 years
I have a dream of a country that doesn't create a "constitution" declared that all men are created equal and are endowed by their creator with the INALIENABLE RIGHTS OF LIFE, LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS, while simultaneously allowing institutional and governmental slavery.
I have a dream of a country that would never allow a 3/5s law. That states that white slave owners to count 3 out of every 5 slaves owned as one whole person.
I have a dream of a country that wouldn't let such heinous crimes such as the brutal murder of 14 yr old Emmett Till, who was tortured so much so that his own mother couldn't identify him. When Mississippi decides to pretend to hold a trial against the two white, grown men (who bragged endlessly of their acts) they would have actually received sentences and not been found NOT GUILTY!
I have a dream of a country that wouldn't have such an issue with HATRED, RACISM, INTOLERANCE, DISCRIMINATION, LYNCHINGS, STEALING LAND, FORCING PEOPLE ON RESERVATIONS,BURNING WOMEN ACCUSED OF WITCH CRAFT AT THE STAKE, WRITING PEOPLE OUT OF HISTORY BOOKS, TV SHOWS AND CLASSIC MOVIES WHERE THE ONLY NON WHITE CHARACTERS ARE CRIMINALS.
I have a dream that when speaking to my Brazilian friend about living in Evansville that he considered segregation for no other reason than the fact that when he isn't around white people he isn't made to feel like less of a person. I have a dream that in regards to my dislike for segregation I completely understood where he was coming from.
I dream of a country that doesn't mistreat women,physically & mentally disabled, elderly, gays, non christian, Muslims, Jewish people, black people, Asians, Latino's & veterans. Then in the name of progress try to create programs to include those once EXCLUDED in the workforce, housing, education etc WOULDN'T HAVE TO HAVE BEEN CREATED!
I HAVE A DREAM THAT YOU WHO TAKE WHITE PRIVILEGE FOR GRANTED COULD LIVE JUST 1 YEAR IN THE SHOES OF SOMEONE WHO IS NOT WHITE. TO LIVE WITH THE FEAR OF POLICE HARASSMENT AND THE ASSUMPTION OF GUILT BASED ON NOTHING MORE THAN YOUR RACE.
I HAVE A DREAM THAT MIDDLE CLASS AMERICANS WAKE UP AND REALIZE THAT THE RICH 1% CONSIDER YOU TO BE JUST AS WORTHLESS AS THE ONE'S YOU LOVE TO HATE. THEY USE THE STEREOTYPES TO PREOCCUPY YOU. AT THE END OF THE DAY THE ONLY COLOR THAT TRULY MATTERS TO THOSE WITH MONEY AND POWER IS GREEN.
I HAVE A DREAM YOU FOOLS WILL WAKE UP AND REALIZE THAT IF YOU ARE UNHAPPY WITH THE PROGRAMS IN PLACE TO HELP ENSURE MINORITIES GET A FAIR CHANCE,(THAT YOU WHITES WOULD NOT ONLY EXPECT BUT DEMAND)HAD YOU NOT REFUSED EQUALITY FOR CENTURIES IT WOULDN'T BE A NECESSITY NOW. THEREFORE YOU ONLY HAVE YOURSELVES TO THANK. DEAL WITH IT!
