When Dreams Die

The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream in which his four little children would one day live in a nation where they would not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. But that was back in 1963 when Blacks – with some White allies – were putting their very  lives, and the lives of their families, on the line in struggle for Civil Rights and equality in America.

That was then, this is now

Well all dreams die when we wake up to reality. The nightmarish truth is that MLK’s children grew up in a world where they wouldn’t be be judged by the color of their skin but by the image of their culture that is portrayed by the media. That image is most often based on the worst available individual examples of any cultural group in America – as exemplified by the rapper and ghetto thug,  Lil Wayne, who is depicted in the image above.
