The final refrain of Martin Luther King Jr.'s most famous speech will echo around the world as bells from churches, schools and historical monuments "let freedom ring" in celebration of a powerful moment in civil rights history.

It's turned into "I have a Nightmare" with the recent brutal slayings of a white baseball player from Australia and an 88 year old WWII veteran by black murderous racist youth's hate crimes against innocent white people. And the trend is growing thanks to Obama feeding and fanning the flames of hate.
Sorry Martin. You tried, but you have failed.

This is such a great day... will be watching MSNBC all day coverage. Dr Martin Luther King's dream lives on through President Obama, the Civil Rights Leaders and patriotic Americans (Black, White and Hispanic) who push forward to a more Progressive nation... I am so proud to be an American!

What is it now... Blacks assault Whites 40 times for every single assault by a White on a Black, yet Black males committing these assaults are about 3% of the US population.

That sounds like a Black problem to me. Maybe it's something Blacks should address. These assaults are vicious and many times fatal. Rapes, gang rapes, torture, multiple racist epithet ranting Blacks on single Whites... a sixteen year old Black thug beats a 51 year old White man to death and gets 18 months incarceration... It sounds like something is wrong.

MLK had dreams but it's time to wake. I bet that he repented all the naive bullchit he said about equality with enslavers when he was drowning in his own greasy blood due to the shot he dully took from a beloved cracKKKer. Nobody really miss him.

“i hope we can change this!”

I wonder if the same bells will toll for two of the most recent white victims of black criminals - Australian jogger Chris Lane and 89 year old WW2 vet Delbert 'Shorty' Belton?

Dr. King as a man of peace would be sickened by the high number of crimes committed by blacks.

His dream lives, but what we have is more of stereotypes in power over the masses of wage slaves. And that includes their own.

We've no doubt that after the speech you'll be back here with you Jiffy Pop moment -- cheerleading Obama for whatever happens to be his theme of the day.

The only time you criticize Obama is when he isn't acting more arrogant, more of an imperialist or displaying more hubris. None of which are what I'd call strong character points.

I won't be looking for your predictable posting, but should I come across it (and can stomach reading your saccharine Obama-worship), I'll let you know if you managed to rise above your idol worship.

Marine Corp (sic) Pat. Why is today such a great day? Did you get some 'tea-bagging' action last night? I hope you brushed your teeth and used mouthwash afterwards.

If you think that obama is a 'progressive' you are sadly mistaken. He is just another corporate shill!

50 years later after the black party in D.C. is a smaller black party in D.C. The percentage of black absenteeism at work is the same now just as it was in August 1963. Oh, that's right. I almost forgot. Blacks don't "work" anymore.

From what I remember of Dr. King, he would be horrified by homosexuality, black vs. black violence, high numbers of black abortions, black incarceration rates, black high school dropout rates, violent hip hop music etc. Dr. King would be against most of what the black community represents today. I doubt that Dr. King would approve of Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson.

That's nice and everything, but I don't see why. Most of his speech didn't jive with the teachings of the bible.
