• Martin Luther King Jr.’s Dream Was the Same As the Founders’

    So many wish to judge the United States of America for what it is rather than what it is intended to be. If we all strive toward the noble vision espoused by the Founding Fathers and enumerated in the Declaration of Independence, we will achieve the dream they and countless others including Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King, Jr. envisioned.

    Excerpt from The Declaration of Independence:

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

  • On Racism

    My definition of a “racist” is anyone who uses the issue of race to further one’s cause and/or to cast dispersions on others based on no substantive evidence. The antithesis of racism is to disregard every aspect of one’s race and SOLELY judge that person on the content of his or her character. THIS is what Martin Luther King, Jr. promoted.

    We should judge people according to their thoughts and ideas, not the color of their skin. If your conversation and ideology always involves the concept of race, I contend that you are racist and that you are incapable of providing to others that which you ask of them.
