On August 28, 1963, Martin Luther King game his famous “I have a dream speech.” He said, “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 but by the content of their character.”
There has been much ado with Barack Obama’s skin color and his upcoming inauguration. While this is certainly a historic event, I do not believe Mr. King’s dream has been fully realized yet. Certainly President Obama’s election is a noteworthy event, and he will be the answer to trivia questions for the next several hundred years. Obama’s election is a wonderful step, but I don’t believe King’s dream has been fully realized yet. Comments?
