What a difference a of a half century makes. Fifty years ago, blacks in America were united in their fight against the external forces against them known as the segregationist Jim Crow and black code laws.. I doubt Dr King envisioned the future of blacks in America was going to turn out like anything it has become in modern day America. It's really sad to say that blacks as a people were more together socially, economically and morally fifty years ago, then they ever were in 2013. I remember my mother telling me stories about how Pennsylvania Ave here in Baltimore was the social place for many of the famous black entertainers in the nation to come and perform. Now it's just a typical high crime, drug addicted slum in West Baltimore. She also told how the black social mindset was completely different back during her time then what it is today. Many of the stores in black neighborhoods were owned by black entrepreneurs. The church and the morals of church were engrained into the DNA of blacks especially young ones. So what in the hell happened to flip this all upside down and inside out in just a matter of 50 years?
Fifty years ago, blacks had more to fear from being killed by whites then by blacks, now that has flipped. Blacks are statistically more likely to be killed by another black person then by any other person of any other racial group in America. If Dr. King was alive today, and he made the mistake of speaking out against the moral decay of black America, he would get the Bill Cosby and Dr Ben Carson treatment of being labeled a sellout or Uncle Tom etc. With all the internal problems facing blacks from not having a father in the home, continuous high unemployment for black men, drug addiction, illiteracy, black on black homicides, it's laughable in a sad way how all of these problems can be ignored yet they can rally in the name of an isolated innocent aka "Trayvon Martin". The so called black leaders of 2013 aren't going to address the real problems, because it simply does not pay to do so. How would Dr King feel about the social decay of blacks in modern America?
Would he approve of it? How would he feel about blacks selling poison to their own people?
I don't think that was apart of his dream. He believed that blacks should reach their fullest potential, and what many young blacks are doing sure as hell isn't that. The black shyster have blacks so screwed up in the head, they have them thinking some how that the "Tea Party" and Republicans are to blame for their situation and are their problem. Speaking of black manipulating shysters, Jesse Jackson said yesterday, that the "Tea Party is the resurrection of the confederacy"
I bet if someone was to press Jackson into explaining how the Tea Party is somehow negatively impacting blacks, he couldn't do it. It's easy for idiots like Jackson and other black racial racketeers to make such absurd statements like that, because the goal is to deflect the attention away from the real problems and to create a straw man bogey man as the problem
, in other words deflect attention away from the internal problems that aren't being dealt with. Dr King's dream has been achieved in regards to race relations. This is not the same country that it was fifty years ago, but don't tell that to blacks who have been brainwashed to believe other wise. To them, this might as well be 1963. In some ways Dr King's vision has been realized and in other ways his vision will sadly only remain a dream and nothing more.
