I Too Have a Dream

January 19th, 2004 | Tags:

Over 40 years ago a great man stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and told people about his dream. What would this man think about the perversions of his dream that have occurred today?

We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal, except that some should be more equal than others. The black man must still complain about how his life has been crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination and how the world has mistreated him.

I have a dream that all of my white brothers will one day live in fear that anything they say regarding a black man will be turned against them.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, unless it will help them get a job, or get into college, or get other special perks.

I have a dream that one day we will all be considered equals. But that day is not today.
