Martin Luther King Day. [Jan. 16th, 2006|03:00 pm]
[Tags|, , ]
[Special Music |The Detroit Experiment - There Is a God.]

Another year passes, and the Dream is not dead.

It's Martin Luther King Day in the United States.

As a Champion of the Civil Rights movement, the Doctor and Reverend showed me how to accomplish my own dreams . . . through my voice.

The Doctor and Reverend Had a Dream.  Even in the Darkest Hours, We Still Fight for It.

He had a most glorious dream.

He died for it, and the dream was most righteous.

Even in the darkest hours, we still fight for it.

MLK is righteous.

The dude was always one of my favorites, growing up . . . he had some good points, and he had his bad ones, just like everyone.

His good points, however, far outweighed everything else he had about him.

I can't really say much in terms of making MLK's legend better than it was . . . some things are already well-spoken-for.

Well said. I wonder how far Dr. King would think we've come... we've got so far still to go.

We'll always have to fight it.

I really don't think, over the course of recorded human history, that humans have been very receptive to outsiders.

By that notion, races really don't get along very well, historically.

In the 21st Century, it's better for most people, but there's plenty of segregation along the lines of finance, discrimination very much in terms of age to go along with the finance, and, of course, homosexuality really doesn't get a fair shake, at least, it doesn't get a neutral reception in the US.

Plus, the current "TERRAR ALERRT" doesn't exactly make a welcome wagon for those who are Arab.
