More than 100,000 people are expected to flood the Lincoln Memorial and the National Mall on Saturday, the first stop in a week of events commemorating the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s watershed “I Have A Dream” address and the March on Washington.
I’ve been watching the wall to wall coverage of this event on the morning nets.
Obligatory sound bite videos are played and replayed. We see Dr. King saying, “I have a dream!” Or, “Free at last, thank God almighty, free at last”
Stirring stuff. But what is not being replayed is what King said his dream actually was:
I have a dream that my four little 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.
The very same people who claimed to support MLK then would today call anybody who attempted to judge black Americans by the content of their character as hoplessly racist and evil.
Because today’s progressive practitioners of the New Racism want to judge everybody by the color of their skins.
MLK would be appalled and shamed by them.
