His Dreamby Eric
Martin Luther King, Jr. said:
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold 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 a table of brotherhood. I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. I have a dream that my four 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.
If you support set asides and quotas, affirmative action and preferential hiring, are you juding by skin color or personality, character and capability? If you denigrate a man because he is black and not a Democrat, have you judged him by his character? Do you believe in Martin Luther King’s words, can you see, touch and taste his dream? Or do you simply seek to gain at another’s expense? Do you really think Dr. King would support your attacks on your fellow man? Or do you seek to delegitimize your opponents through the use of racist symbology to gain in power and influence? Do you keep racism and prejudice alive by continuing to deal with differences and promote judging people based on their color?
