Tuesday, February 14, 2006State of the Dream
This is a link to the state of Dr. King's Dream. Things haven't changed much over the years for Blacks, in fact, in many areas things have gotten worst. All of these years, people are looking to a dream that will never materialized. This King dream has really turned into our worst nightmare. Things are so bad, they are predicting that 1 out of 3 black males born in 2001 will go to prison in their lifetime. In 2001 - 13 states had more black men in jail than in college. This is appalling. One can only assume the numbers are worst in 2006. We are more unaware, ignorant, sick, self-destructive, mentally unbalanced, and monetarily disadvantage than we were when King was alive.
I'm convinced this King dream is going to be our undoing. At least when we were segregated, we were not in jail in these numbers and as a group, we operated more as a family unit. We had more unity and now we allowed all of these distractions to pull us apart and keep us separated from each other. We are completely vulnerable to the various vices of this society that uses a different moral standard to keep us in a perpetual state of disarry.
