We’ve Come a Long Way Baby but not Done Yet: Martin Luther King Jr Day 2009 … Most Blacks Say MLK’s Vision Fulfilled

 

Today we honor the man and the tremendous efforts of slain Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. and his “dream”. Very few can be called heroic, MLK is certainly one. We look back to a troubled time and we look to present day and the long journey and strides that this great nation has made toward MLK’s ultimate dream of equality so that all people could be able to “join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual: Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!.”

America has a lot to be proud of in the past 40+ years and the efforts that have been made and its accomplishment. Is it over, no. Not by a long shot. I am glad to know that the dream moves forward and not in reverse. However, according to a CNN poll most blacks think that MLK’s vision has been fulfilled.  

There are few speeches that have had as much purpose and meaning as Martin Luther King Jr’s “I Have a Dream” speech. On August 23, 1963 civil rights leader Martin delivered one of the most impacting speeches on the Mall in Washington, DC that would echo across generations. (Read the entire speech here)

 Martin Luther King Jr. “I have a Dream” Speech

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.

I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.

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.

I have a dream today!

Mlk3

We have come a long way since 1963 in America an it appears that many blacks also see the positive changes that have been made toward MLK’s vision and dream. Is MLK’s dream complete, not by a long shot as I believe as does Michelle Malkin that the education standard for blacks remains an unfulfilled dream. Why school choice and vouchers are not allowed for inner city school children and why “minority children and their families to languish in some of the country’s worst schools” is appalling. This issue does not always fall a long racial lines, but one of privilege.

The CNN-Opinion Research Corp. survey was released Monday, a federal holiday honoring the slain civil rights leader and a day before Barack Obama is to be sworn in as the first black U.S. president.

The poll found 69 percent of blacks said King’s vision has been fulfilled in the more than 45 years since his 1963 “I have a dream” speech — roughly double the 34 percent who agreed with that assessment in a similar poll taken last March.

But whites remain less optimistic, the survey found.

“Whites don’t feel the same way — a majority of them say that the country has not yet fulfilled King’s vision,” CNN polling director Keating Holland said. However, the number of whites saying the dream has been fulfilled has also gone up since March, from 35 percent to 46 percent.

So why are whites more pessimistic that Martin Luther King Jr’s vision has not been Mlkmet? Is it as suggested at Hot Air that there is that much “liberal white guilt”? I tend to believe that there is liberal white guilt but not enough of it to make a difference. I do agree with Hot Air that the reason may be that we, as whites, do not have the moral authority to answer the question as we have not lived the “black experience”. We as whites can only make sure that we personally do not discriminate, provide barriers and live with racial division.

I would say that many are making far too much of Obama’s election to the Presidency as the end all be all vision on MLK. People of privilege come in all colors. Obama has been elected the first black President of the United States, now he has much to prove just like all Presidents that have come before him. He gets no pass because of color because it is supposed to be about one’s character. Is Barack Obama Lincolnesque or MLK-like as the MSM would like us all to believe? No. Not yet as least. Does he have an opportunity to be, yes. However, until the man does something that is worth noting, it is a slight against those that have gave their lives to the ending of slavery and the Civil Rights movement in America. Let us never forget how great certain people really were and Martin Luther King Jr. was one of the truly great men of the 20th century.

Mascmind takes a rather controversial approach to MLK’s true vision as compared to the election of Barack Obama. It might be controversial, but it has some merit. MLK focused on the point that it was “not about the color of one’s skin, but about the content of one’s character”. The point being made regarding Obama’s election was that it had little to do with his character. Although I do not quite go that far as there were so many other extenuating circumstances like a poor economy and a lame Republican choice for President, there is some validity to why many voted for Barack Obama. However, in the black community the election of Barack Obama is looked upon as a pont in the direction toward MLK’s vision.

It’s a forgone conclusion that the main reason that Barack Obama was elected president had little to do with the content of his character, but with the color of his skin. Blacks voted for him because he was black – period, and those who didn’t report they are looked on as traitors to the race. This is understandable in light of the past, but it’s a tragedity for the present as just to vote for someone on external appearance is a slander to the right to vote that many Americans fought and died for. It’s not a day of rejoicing, it should be a day of shame.

      This is, truly, a statement from the heart for it is up to each and every one of us how well we get along with others. We are all slaves of one kind or another, but happy is he who has a master with a loving heart, a grateful spirit and a gentle hand.

      We create our own masters

      complete with cages…

      MLK was always on my list of 5 people I always wanted to sit down and talk with.

      I have always believed and tried to live the words that it is not about the color of ones skin but the content of ones character. Sadly some have forgotten and some only abide by it when it suits their purpose.

      MLK Jr. is a true American hero.

      Yes, thou art gone! and round me too the night
      In ever-nearing circle weaves her shade.
      I see her veil draw soft across the day,
      I feel her slowly chilling breath invade
      The cheek grown thin, the brown hair sprent with grey;
      I feel her finger light
      Laid pausefully upon life’s headlong train; –
      The foot less prompt to meet the morning dew,
      The heart less bounding at emotion new,
      And hope, once crush’d, less quick to spring again.

      And long the way appears, which seem’d so short
      To the less practised eye of sanguine youth;
      And high the mountain-tops, in cloudy air,
      The mountain-tops where is the throne of Truth,
      Tops in life’s morning-sun so bright and bare!
      Unbreachable the fort
      Of the long-batter’d world uplifts its wall;
      And strange and vain the earthly turmoil grows,
      And near and real the charm of thy repose,
      And night as welcome as a friend would fall.

      I’m not sure I necessarily correllate MLK with Obama being elected. Dr. King’s dream is based on the God-given freedom that we were born with and have always had-because he believed God created us in His image and knew He loves the ones He created and says He loves. Simply saying Obama has realised Dr. King’s dream because he’s black(1/2 black) is shallow and not true. However, Obama has said nothing about Jesus being at the center of his beliefs. Plenty of people of all races all over the world have been stepping up and living their dreams for years, becasue they know who they are in Christ Jesus. there is no reason not to and no one to fear. It’s great Obama is living out his dream of being president but playing up race and likening it to MLK’s dream coming true is over the top. I think MLK’s dream would be for all of this excitement to go on and no one to even think of race as an issue to discuss.

    8. MLK Fan on January 19th, 2009 4:06 pm

      Dr. King’s work did contribute to Obama being elected. Otherwise, America in 2008 might not have quite been ready to elect him.

    10. ThEhApPsTeR on January 19th, 2009 6:36 pm

      MLK fan-that is probably true, I agree. I guess I am just saying that Dr. King was led by love of God to tell/remind people of why we are all equal and the importance of the content of our character. Where voters of Obama seem to be led by race in many cases(or simply the anyone-is-better-than-bush mentality) I’m not sure about the content of his character yet~ one case in point, the racist church he has gone to for years…I really don’t think Dr. king would have even voted for Obama for that reason alone. Dr. King was for God, not for the black race. He just happen to be a clear voice in reminding all people of their value through Christ, and encouraging and building up people.At least that’s the way I hear his speeches/sermons. I never heard him say anything that was not straight from the bible, where I have heard Obama mock the bible.

    11. bob on January 19th, 2009 6:57 pm

      SM, “MLK was a true American hero?” You don’t know what you say. MLK was a communist agent. He was highly treasonous. He was said by the FBI to be in in the top 5 sexual degenerates they had ever seen. And the list goes on from there… King plaigarized his PHD thesis in more than 50 places.

      “Reading Garrow’s article, one is led to the inescapable conclusion that King cheated because he had chosen for himself a political role in which a PhD would be useful, and, lacking the intellectual ability to obtain the title fairly, went after it by any means necessary. Why, then, one might ask, did the professors at Crozer Theological Seminary and Boston University grant him passing grades and a PhD? Garrow states on page 89: “King’s academic compositions, especially at Boston University, were almost without exception little more than summary descriptions… and comparisons of other’s writings. Nonetheless, the papers almost always received desirable letter grades, strongly suggesting that King’s professors did not expect more….” The editors of “The Martin Luther King Jr. Papers” state that “…the failure of King’s teachers to notice his pattern of textual appropriation is somewhat remarkable….”

      But researcher Michael Hoffman tells us “…actually the malfeasance of the professors is not at all remarkable. King was politically correct, he was Black, and he had ambitions. The leftist [professors were] happy to award a doctorate to such a candidate no matter how much fraud was involved. Nor is it any wonder that it has taken forty years for the truth about King’s record of nearly constant intellectual piracy to be made public.”

      “Soon after returning from a trip to Moscow in 1958, Rustin organized the first of King’s famous marches on Washington. The official organ of the Communist Party, “The Worker,- – openly declared the march to be a Communist project. Although he left King’s employ as secretary in 1961, Rustin was called upon by King to be second in command of the much larger march on Washington which took place on August 28, 1963.

      Bayard Rustin’s replacement in 1961 as secretary and advisor to King was Jack O’Dell, also known as Hunter Pitts O’Dell. According to official records, in 1962 Jack O’Dell was a member of the National Committee of the Communist Party, USA. He had been listed as a Communist Party member as early as 1956. O’Dell was also given the job of acting executive director for SCLC activities for the entire Southeast, according to the St. Louis “Globe-Democrat – -of October 26, 1962. At that time, there were still some patriots in the press corps, and word of O’Dell’s party membership became known.

      What did King do? Shortly after the negative news reports, King fired O’Dell with much fanfare. And he then, without the fanfare, “immediately hired him again- – as director of the New York office of the SCLC, as confirmed by the “Richmond News-Leader – -of September 27, 1963. In 1963 a Black man from Monroe, North Carolina named Robert Williams made a trip to Peking, China. Exactly 20 days before King’s 1963 march on Washington, Williams successfully urged Mao Tse-Tung to speak out on behalf of King’s movement. Mr. Williams was also around this time maintaining his primary residence in Cuba, from which he made regular broadcasts to the southern US, three times a week, from high-power AM transmitters in Havana under the title “Radio Free Dixie.” In these broadcasts, he urged violent attacks by Blacks against White Americans.”

      King was an evil man and a puppet for the enemies of America. King also masqueraded as a Christian. He was as anti-Christian as any man could get!!

      YOYO, Would you like me to tell you the truth about Ghandhi and Mother Teresa? Mother Teresa, now in Hell, was a Marxist who denied Jesus Christ as the only way to Heaven. Ghandi was a member of Madame Blavatsky’s Theosophical Society (TS). Other members of the TS included Hitler.

      If you google Martin Luther King (his real name was Michael King) and Communism you “only” get 833,000 references. Why not try reading some of them–unless you are living in your own bubble afraid of facts.

      By the way, the Westboro Baptist people are known for “god hates fags.” What does that have to do with King, the commie?

      People do not have to agree 100% with a person’s beliefs or affiliations to understand that they stand for a greater good. Such a myopic approach would have people hating George Washington, Lincoln, Ghandi and many others.

      I think people are intelligent enough to figure out the good in people and to understand their greater message.

      There is nothing wrong with a message that people should live togather in peace without racism or ignorant hatred. That goes for all people.

      #19, Exactly, the message is the point.

      Bob, you understand that J. Edgar Hoover was out to derail Dr. King at any cost?

      I guess you would have to be there to understand the climate in the 60′s. Whatever radical ideas Dr. King may have explored, his goal was what he expressed in his speach.

      Greetings:

      Last evening, on PBS’ “The News Hour”, Gwen Ifill (of the Obama debate/book infamy) interviewed four Negro “civil rights industrialists” who all agreed that there was just sooooo much more to be done before Dr. King’s dream could be fulfilled, once again proving to me that to be a liberal one must have missed out on “The Princess and the Pea” fairy tale. You see, once a liberal identifies a problem it can never be sufficiently corrected or that part of their grievance industry would collapse. No matter how much money or how many mattresses, that problem “pea” is always there requiring much weeping and the nashing of teeth. It merely becomes a little more “nuanced.”

      Monkeys, Allow me to get on my soapbox this day. What is the true impact of King’s legacy? Sadly, the destruction of the black man; as the black American has now been formed into a communist collective. A collective that has been used to destroy our constitutional rights under the guise of “civil rights.” The black man has been used in a dialectic process that divides true Americans by pitting black vs. white. Do you think it’s an accident that 95% of them vote for the socialist Democratic Party? They have lost their individuality and become “group thinkers” who are pressured to ignore facts for the good of their “black community.” A “community” that apparently spans all 50 states and includes everyone from billionaires to the impoverished. And if a black man succeeds against all peer pressure, then he will be pressured to “give back” to this “community.” That is communism. And if a black man thinks and acts correctly against the “black group consensus” and resists their racist and socialist thinking, then they will be accused of “being white” or being “an Uncle Tom.” Only the strongest blacks have overcome this pressure. Because of King, the true enemy of the black man is the black man himself. The goal of communism is to destroy the patriarch and create a matriarch society. Socialism has caused the black woman to “dump her man for Uncle Sam.” The predictable result has been the destruction of the black family unit. The enemy of communism is the family unit led by a strong father. This unit has been destroyed because of King and the black communists that have followed him–Jackson, Sharpton, et al. I contend, despite the Obama presidency, that the black man is FAR worse today because of black communist agents like MLK.

      It’s people like you that will continue the downward spiral of hope in this world!!!!

      It’s sad when people continue to stereotype people. I thought as we as people grow and mature we start to see people as people who are unique even though different but an individual. Just because some people may think different than you it doesn’t mean everyone of a certain race agrees with what one or a group individual says or believe. It’s stupid thinking like this that starts things and continue to fuel the fire.

      I am so thankful that all people of your race whatever it may be!! Does not think like you. You see I can disagree with your comment without sterotyping people of your race into that very small box you live in.

      Bob:

      A sword? I think if you look at the cross-references in your Bible, assuming ofcourse, you truly have one, you will find the true meaning of having ‘a sword protruding from His mouth’. You are a man who professes to be a Christian, but one who has no Bible knowledge. If you spent more time loving your Lord and less time researching rediculous facts about Martin Luther King and Mother Theresa, Ghandi and the like; you might be upgraded to a half-wit. This isn’t Sunday School, but it can’t be helped when someone makes a statement as outrageous as the one you just posted. Ofcourse, just like the Bible says, Satan blinds the eyes of the non-believers.

      C.C.: ~Bless your efforts.

    36. Paul on January 22nd, 2009 7:36 am

      4: I agree, although I blame the national acceptance of moral relativism for this blurring of the lines. It’s not that there are no more definite “rights” and “wrongs” it’s that you are considered an extremist (“hardliner”) if you express the belief that there are. You can’t offend anyone, and taking a hardline stance is a sure way to offend. It sucks.

      8: You’re missing the point. The point is not what MLK did for Obama, it’s what Obama did for MLK. And that would be nothing. As Mascmind pointed out, we are no closer to character content vice skin color than we were before Obama.

      22: WAKE UP! Obama is no savior, he’s just the first strong candidate that the African American community has been able to field. Another thing, this global obsession with Obama is beyond creepy. Knock it off.

      18: bob, are you really serious? Did you know mother Theresa? Are you authorized to judge? Have you seen the works that she did? Your blithering misinformation is based, I would imagine, on a single source. Only an idiot believes the first thing he reads. However, I can say from firsthand experience that Gandhi, regarded as a statesman and humanitarian, is responsible for the promotion of a religious system that leaves a HUGE portion of his population homeless and starving. I was in Mumbai recently and a woman came up to me. I thought she was going to beg for money as literally hundreds had in the 15 minutes that I had been out that night. I got some cash out for her because she wasn’t shouting, she looked embarrassed to be asking, and she had a child. She told me she didn’t need money, she needed someone to go into the store and buy her food. While 15 minutes up the road was the seat of Bollywood. Police beat these beggars with shoes. I saw my cab driver lay one of them out. No reason, just because the guy was bothering him. That’s the system that Gandhi promoted. Mother Theresa, personal beliefs aside (I don’t know what they were and neither do you), promoted good works in contrast to the system that existed.

      29: Bob McCarthy, stop worrying about Communists. These days the majority of the Communist party of America are pot-smoking hippies at Stanford. People who have no experience with real life. They are not worth the effort. MLK was not Communist, Socialist, Marxist, Maoist, Stalinist or Leninist. Nor was he a traitor to his country, sexual deviant or granted the title of “Doctor” under false pretenses. His message was NOT political, it was social. He intended no great shift in the way we run our country, he wanted a shift in the way we regard our fellow man and the political changes that would follow were nothing but the inevitable result of a correction of our thinking.

      34: G******it, bob you are one misguided human being. Jesus Christ isn’t going to return to kill everyone. When He said that, the rest of the verse was a clarification meant specifically for those without a sense of metaphor such as yourself. There will come a time when mankind will have to choose between God and the government of the devil on earth. This will split families and cause much bloodshed. That’s what He meant. People with your level of ignorance are a danger to themselves and to others. I’d hate to see you end up in hell for this, so I’ll ask you to find a different church than the one you attend now and talk to the pastors about your beliefs. Get counseling. Seriously.

      Dr. Martin Luther King’s Dream
      Is it really Barack Obama or has the dream yet to come?
      Who are the Negro People?

      As the new U.S President B. Obama touts about being the embodiment of the late DR. Martin Luther King dream for America, I can‘t help but wonder, who are the people DR. King is talking about when he speaks of the Negro People? Who are the Negro people?

      Has anyone taken the time to read and comprehend Dr. Martin Luther Kings I HAVE A DREAM speech, if they did they will notice there is no mention of African people, African struggle, African Americans.

      I Have a Dream states “One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later, the Negro is still languishing in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. So we have come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.”

      He only mentions the condition of the Negro people in their homeland of America and their relationship with the new nation of the United States. At some point in time a person reading this speech should want to clarify, “Who are the Negro People- the blacks as they are identified?” To answer these questions one needs to identify some facts.

      What does the term Negro signify? The term Negro people signify the Indigenous American people or Amerindians the colonial term used to represent them is Negro The Negro American race or black Americans represent the continuation of the remaining natural linage and bloodlines of the indigenous American People belonging the land of America before European invasion born from American Indian women. The founding father of the U.S established a new form of society on American soil. In this new society American Indian women and her descendants are used to SERVE as human commodity (slaves) people living in freedom(without their natural rights to self determination) but not being free (collective self determination) in the United States. Negro people represent the descendants from American Indian women or enslaved American Indians of America.

      He continues and speaks about the full citizenship promised by the U.S to all Negro people in their homeland, and reveals the fact the U.S has not kept its promise; he states the Negro People have received a “Bad Check”.

      “It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked “insufficient funds”

      What is the deal the United States made with the Negro leadership for the Negro people 1868. The U.S. promised “Citizenship” to the Negro people? If a person would do their research, they would find that the 1868 treaty with Abe Lincoln established the Union of the American Indian people as Negros with the United States and the continent of land belonging to the American Indian people was put in a land trust to be governed by the United States in exchange for American Indian people born from American Indian women were to receive full citizenship meaning the same rights as the people who enslaved them and self determination to develop themselves under this new nation umbrella.

      Understanding past U.S history explains why Dr. King ‘s dream of seeing an integrated society’s Negro and Euro-American people working as equals in this nation? The big secret is – The Negro People are the people who are allowing the Nation to exist, without their land there is no Nation, with out there peace there is “no prosperity of this Nation” He also threatened the Negro race of people will not rest until they have justice. In other words “NO Justice, NO Peace” All black American people can attest we are not treated equal nor are we treated equally or regarded as citizens,. In 2009 our people still languish on the out skirts of Euro-American society and the Marjory are captured and living in Prisons, our children live in extreme poverty, we lack collective employment as a nation we are on the brink of extinction. The difference today is Negro people as black American for generations have been forced and influence to assimilate into European attitudes and culture they have lost their connection to their ancestral American Indian culture and connection to their Natural homeland. As a result they lack respect, dignity, hope or direction.

      Now that some facts have been revealed, the question to ponder is how did the new elected African president become the ideal of DR. Martin Luther King and the Negro People? Or better yet Why is President Barack Obama a European and African decent immigrant being used to personify the dream of Martin Luther King for the Negro people in the Negro Homeland instead of a Negro president for the country that has yet to give them a GOOD check, Wouldn’t a Negro president show the world, the dream of Martin Luther King has for his people finally came to pass? The answer is President B. Obama does not represent Dr. King’s dream he had for the Negro People. President, B Obama represents a distortion of the Dream, and the Negro people are being Con out of their pants again by the Euro- American (U.S) society and (U.S) media at large.

      So exactly what is the semantics around Barack Obama? A European and African decent immigrant who is now a Negro Person, or are Negro people becoming Africa immigrants to their homeland thru identifying themselves with Barack Obama. Is there a national identity switch going on? Are the Negro people being duped out of the dept the United States owes them, the one DR. Martin Luther King spoke about? Are today’s Negro people being setup to be permmentily homeless people, with no place to be fruitful and multiply on the planet? If Negro or black American people become immigrants don’t they lose all there human and inalienable rights to live in the U.S, and lose their civil privileges by becoming immigrants to there homeland through identifying President Barack Obama as one of them? Yet he is a Kenyan African not an American Negro? Will this enable the U.S to destroy the dream of Martin Luther King and remove any claim the Negro people have in the Negro Homeland?

      LET’S SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT
      As a result, Negro people are being bamboozled again with a new perception that racism has stop in America against them, when in fact the systematic extermination of Negro people are filling up the jails and the graves, the only difference now is that they have a man named Barack Obama to cover over the crimes being committed against them and keep the people invisible and confused. It is a fact most black/Negro people lack education in their heritage, history, and most Negro women have been educated to have little respect for understanding their collective purpose as creators of the race and the sacred Grace we hold- it is woman that nature in trusts to continue their humanity as a valuable part of nature to the planet If they did they would not say they are black and they would understand B Obama is not the first Negro president and recognize and respect Michelle Obama is the first Negro woman in the White house and stand proud because her presence in the White House is a huge strike against the stigma from colonialism of Negro women as inferior woman, while our people understand that the struggle of equality represented by a Negro Man as president has yet to come part of Dr. Kings dream has started but yet to be completely fulfilled. It is up to us not to lose site of who we are and represent, our struggle is not over. It is time to recognize your indigenous identity.
      Don’t be fooled by the Hype
