Default Happy Birthday Martin Luther King

I have one question to ask for today. Martin Luther King has been dead for almost 40 years now. He preached equality and civil rights. He demanded to be treated as a human being--- nothing more than anyone else deserves--- and nothing extra, either. He died for his beliefs. If he were alive today preaching the same message, I believe that the professional race-baiters of society would accuse him of "acting white."

Do you believe that race relations today are what he "dreamed" of seeing?

I bet EXO is one of those conservatives who thinks MLK was a communist and nobody should get the day off.

Those people aren't conservatives, Boston.....

If he were alive today, I believe he would be outed by the likes of Jesse and Al....he would be deemed a right wing radical, in my opinion.....

Why is it everything must be a fight between liberal and conservative idealogies anymore? I'm sure all around the country today there are debates(if you can call them that) over who MLK would support today in the political scene. What difference does it really make?

The opportunity for equality is out there now and while there are and ALWAYS will be kinks in the system I think we have come quite far from where we had been. If anything the real dividing line now is entirely financial. Unfortunately this is where we are still lacking.

Too many schools(in lower financial class areas) are teaching children with outdated textbooks and technology, and some of these buildings are in worse shape then the jails we use to house criminals. The opportunity is out there...now we must work to let the children actually know they're out there and give them the proper tools and training to achieve them. This is something that was REALLY lacking in my generation and it shows. We need to have a minimum baseline that EVERY school in the entire country should have to adhere to as far as keeping the building up to code, getting new textbooks, some new technology, etc... This way no matter what there is NO excuse for not reaching for those opportunities.

No, I do not believe that race relations are near what he dreamed of them being. Now keep in mind that this line of thought is strictly from what I derived from his teachings and the text and movies about him. I believe King wanted "equality" not "special interest sympathy".

No...I feel the dream is still a very long way off. Nontheless I always will celebrate MLK's B-day, and hope for his dream to come true..

Yes, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton always call people left-wing maniacs.

People praise MLK and with good reason. His speech is one of the biggest inspirations for most people and it's the picture of the perfect world. But if he were alive these days people would condem him and treat him as an extremist because I know his movement would of expanded and probably things would of been different.
