Dr. MLK, Jr. Assasinated 40 Years Ago Today.

Below is a text excerpt and the video from Dr. King's "I Have A Dream"
Speech. Everyone knows about it; many have never actually seen it.

"I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and
frustrations of the moment I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply
rooted in the American dream.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the
true meaning of its creed--"We hold these these truths to be self
evident, that all men are created equal."

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of
former slaves and the sons of former slaveowners will be able to sit
down together at the table of brotherhood."

May he rest in peace...

    I love this video: my elementary school used to play it every MLK Day. That march, this speech, is one of the better things that’s happened in this country. That said: Deliberately overexposed?Anyway, yeah… I’ve been honestly surprised by how much play Wright’s comments have gotten. In context, most of them aren’t really new or radical ideas. How white-bread do you have to be to take part in the political discourse?

    You know, MLK Jr. also made a lot of speeches that resembled the same content (if not tone) as Rev. Wright. I say that in support of Wright not disparagement of MLK Jr.
