i say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, i still have a dream. it is a dream deeply rooted in the american dream.
i have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “we hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.”
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.
let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of mississippi. from every mountainside, let freedom ring.
and when this happens, when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of god’s children, black men and white men, jews and gentiles, protestants and catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old negro spiritual, “free at last! free at last! god almighty, we are free at last! ”
write your paragraph here: has mlk’s dream come true in present day america?
There are a myriad of factors that contribute to the statistics I mentioned, but it does not miss the reality-we are still divided by race. The dream has not yet come true.
I believe that MLK's dream has not completely come true in present day America. He states 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". However, in recent news there was a rise of police brutality that is completely on the basis of discrimination. In order for his dream to come true, there should be no possibility of anyone, or his children, being treated differently due to skin color. I am not entirely sure if this discrimination applies to all social classes, but I know that we still have work to do in obtaining this dream.
