TODAY MARKS THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE TRAIL BLAZING “I HAVE A DREAM” SPEECH BY DR.MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.#B.BRAVE

August 28, 1963 on the steps on the Lincoln Memorial In Washington D.C, stood a Bold, & Brave African American Man, with a passion for people, for his people, for all people, that we as a Human race will be able to co-exist and create a life where we all can , eat together, pray together, love together with out being abused, condemned, frowned upon, &forced to eat from the segregated back doors of restaurants, hosed , beaten, bruised, & thrown away without having a voice and beaten for even trying to have one! During a time where your name was not given by birth it was given by the color of your skin, You are not “Martin” You are “Nigger”& Monkey” You do not die of natural deaths, you are most likely to die from being linched and hung from a tree for the city /town to see. And inspite of this , This man, Our Hero, continued to use his voice to fight for whats right, fight against injustice, at a time when we could not enter a hotel, live in neighborhoods, vote in for our beliefs or even ride in the front of a city bus, or be in a area that was not tagged as for “Colored Only”. In spite of all the injustice we faced, he fought on, with his approach, to be NON VIOLENT. He continued to fight on. Even after persecution, abuse, violent acts against him, home being vandalized, He still had a dream and a vision that one day. Maybe not that day BUT one day , we would all join and be treated as equals, inspite of our short comings. “A dream where we would be judged not by the color of our skin but by the content of our character”.

Dr. King was and still is an imperative part of our culture. Not only because of his bravery but for his unwavering spirit that no matter what, he would not only fight for his family but for all families to have the ability to for once be FREE! It makes you wonder how far have we came? And how far do we still have to go? In an era where calling each other a NIGGA /NIGGER has become the NEW normal, in-spite of the many lives who have been taken, because of their fight to change that. In spite the efforts of our civil rights leaders to stop violent acts against us, we have somehow became the ones who kill, abuse and destroy each other. Not only with physicality but also with our words of negativity and hatred towards one another. We only learn about our culture on Black history Month or Martin Luther King Jr day, no real effort in continuing the fight for change. On the other side We have come a long way, WE have for the first time in History , an African american President in office who has won not one but two terms in spite of the adversity against him, mostly because of his color of his skin. As a generation we are a Strong force, we have the ability to change anything, instead we put most of our energy into learning the latest “Twerking”routines, are embed ourselves in daily drama, lack of knowledge and ability to want to learn is also a huge hindrance. I often ask myself if we didn’t have Rev Jesse Jackson and the incomparable AL Sharpton, what would we do? Who would fight for our rights? who are our next leaders? who will take their place? Or at least pick up where they left off? As a nation we have come so far. Its so important to keep going. Educate yourself. learn not only your history but other’s history as well. Knowledge is only power if you use it! We have so many who died for the opportunities we have today, yet we selfishly act as if it is owed to us, or if for some reason we deserve these opportunities. Yes we have been freed as slaves from MAN but we have instead enslaved ourselves Mentally.
