Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. wrote a speech on the war in Vietnam. In listening to this great orator, who delivered a timely speech for that time, but also for this day also. Dr. Marin Luther King Jr., spoke also about the poor and the hardships that are going on in that day and also he spoke prophetically to this year in 2009 . At a time when we are fighting for freedoms for other countries, the poor are going unnoticed. The fundings that are used to fund the wars, are taking away from the funds that are desperately needed in the United States.
At a time in this country where we have Town Hall Meetings where guns are brought to them by persons who say that they are protecting their second amendment rights, to bring their guns where the president of these United States stands and gives a speech. Not only are they bringing guns they are carrying signs that oppose our President, not on the basis of his policies that they neglect to remember that these were the policies that were under the Bush administration. While President Barrack Obama, would like to state that this is a post racial society, his character and color is under attack.
How can we forget Joe Wilson's outburst
From Joe Wilson's now's infamous remarks at congress, he has received over a million dollars in donations via the internet. He is also signing postcards with his infamous words on them. So now Little Joe Wilson, is now known threw out the country and more than likely the world.
While all of this is going on, the racial divide is ignored by our First Black President and First Black Attorney General. It is long overdue that President Obama and Attorney General Holden, direct attention to the racial division in this country. A lady who I have to give great respect to Nancy Pelosci addressed this issue and her concerns while President Obama was directing a scolding to an entertainer Kanya West in his actions at the MTV Grammy awards.
Then we have Glen Beck who calls Obama a racist on Fox News, while what most of the world sees is President Obama does not address the problems of the black and the poor.
So what do we do, we are told to vote, we voted, if you like myself voted for Barrack Obama you voted for change and not more of the same. So where do we go from here? Someone tell me. Are we going backwards instead of forwards? Has black folks lost their mind and we are living in a post racial society, with justice for all, that is equal? Or are black folks, right and we see the increase in injustices that are done against us. We see unemployment climbing for us, not that it isn't in other neighborhoods. Have we lost our minds and is it our imagination that guns were being purchased by White America in huge masses and we hear talks of a race riots? Who are these race riots going to be started by, the Black community was not out buying guns in masses amounts, we are not out training our children to use guns. I ask where are we headed, are we going ahead to progress or our we moving backwards to the Jim Crow era?
