50 Years Later…

Posted: August 28, 2013 in Uncategorized

So as I write this, the coverage lingers on.

Obama, King’s daughter, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton. Everyone who is anyone in the black community is there…for the wrong reason.

Most if not all of everyone who is there is a democrat. Sure some policies changed in the last 50 years, but the core value is still the same, peaceful protest is the only option to achieve fair treatment. The Democrats there think they believe that when really they supported the Occupy movement (violent riots), believe that everyone whose a criminal deserves equal treatment especially if their black, they are entitled to government assistance because of their race, and probably the most annoying is the idea that they can boast about words from a pastor who would turn his back on these “supporters” who attack Christians and God.

“And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all the flesh shall see it together. This is our hope. This is the faith I go back to the South with. With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope.” – “I Had A Dream”, MLK Jr.

Those who were there now seem to ignore the change that has already happened and act as if nothing has changed when in reality, a lot of change has occurred. We cannot look at the present believing that it is exactly the same as how it was 50 years ago. Racially, we are more equal among blacks and whites than ever before. So reflect on history without a prejudice mind.

“I say to you today, my friends, though, even though we face difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation is rise up, live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.’
