MLK's Dream is Dead

On Tuesday, Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Ill) called upon Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich to appoint a black man or woman to fill Obama's Senate seat and said that it would be a "national disgrace" if he did not do so. If any Americans where laboring under the delusion that electing Barack Obama as President would put an end to the notion that America is a racist nation; welcome to the reality. The race problem in the United States ends when self appointed civil rights leaders like Rush says it ends, and not before.

Martin Luther King said, "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." King spoke these words on August 28, 1963. That was 45 years ago, and in the eyes of the self appointed civil rights leaders, nothing has changed in all the days from this day to that. America has made tremendous progress towards the fulfillment of MLK's dream. But, too many have based their careers upon racial inequities, real or imagined. Too many have seen that there are political advantages in the perpetuation of perceived racial problems in America. King had to believe that that 'one day' would eventually come. That 'one day' will never come if Bobby Rush, and his ilk, have their way.

Oh, man....great post. Isn't it the truth? MLK would have hated this.
That man should be ashamed of himself....it's about as unAmerican as it gets, don't you think?

And, he WILL get his way, trust me...PC is THRIVING these days...who needs someone who's competent, right? We saw that in the presidential election. (ooops!)

Don't say,'ooops'. You are right! The election was more about race than is was about competence or character.

And where are the black leaders who should be publicly distancing themselves from that comment? Perhaps they're too busy secretly high-fiving each other and whispering, "right on."
