    Delusional much? I lived in the south in the 90s. The dream was NOT fulfilled there, I promise.

    Sadly, I think Dr. King would be profoundly disappointed in our nation today. You see, when we attempt to judge someone by their character, it turns into a distorted judgement of skin color. We simply still are unable to believe that character and motive can trump skin color… it’s either racism or oppression that rules the conversation of the day. For Dr. King’s dream to come to fruition, some hard truths must be acknowledged and accepted.

    I’ve lived in the South all my life, and it’s no worse here than in any other place I’ve been. I guess it’s all in what you want to see… unless you meant that you lived in the South in the 1890s.

    I find it interesting that the RWNJs are blind to the division of their own party. The division within their own party. And then they have the gall and audacity to claim that the division of this country is all the fault of one man. Good grief, in only intelligence could rule the day. But sadly as long as there is a RWNJ with a podium that will never be.

    I also live in the deep south. I have been here since ‘91. I work with a number of black professionals. If you can’t make here, you need to look at your own attitude.

    Primarily because of the Al Sharptons and Jesse Jackons and other race baiters who make a living out of division.

    When I watched the 2009 inauguration, I said “Our long national nightmare is over.” Little did I know, it was just beginning. I see people saying things today, I haven’t heard in 50 years. The country is fractured. The constant race baiting has had it’s desired effect. Very sad. I thought we were over this.
    I will just say this: Great leaders unite. Poor leaders divide.
    The greatest opportunity of our time has been squandered, in favor of divisional politics. End of story. Sorry…

    What should be “public knowledge” , or common sense………..
    Its takes centuries to change man’s attitudes.
    IMO, less political power for conservatives MAY accelerate progress.

    Breen brings out words that should be universal around the world, not just here in the U.S. . Yes, Dr. King said them, but many have, before, and since, and been ignored, as division, not unity, is a primary mover of “movements”, be they political, religious, racial, or ethnic.


    In the ’60’s I saw more discrimination after the Civil Rights Act passed in Florida, than in Georgia and Mississippi. I got called in to “monitor” the riots after Dr. King was assassinated. I was in Watts during the ‘65 riots, visiting my very white great uncle, and again after that “other King”, who was a total scumbag, caused another riot in Watts. Even HE said, "Can’t we all just get along?"


    Yes, the “birther movement” proves we don’t have a problem, except the one caused by minorities who still demand equal rights, and judgement on their character, not skin color, ethnicity, or even “politics”. That little movement IS full of a different “movement” any more, and lost it’s original focus as more radical folks took it over.


    Which, interesting that a little attention paid to the Dalai Lama’s repeated message that altruism IS the ultimate positive, might also bring to mind that “golden rule”, that’s been touted, but ignored, through most of human history.
