"At the very same time that America refused to give the Negro any land, through an act of Congress our government was giving away millions of acres of land in the West and the Midwest, which meant that it was willing to undergird its white peasants from Europe with an economic floor."

It's been 50 years since Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream Speech." Some parts of the dream have come to fruition, but I think we all agree that more needs to be done.
Im not talking about more social programs or more handouts. I talking about the personal responibility of all African Americans to accept responsibility for condition of our communities.
50 years ago there was a call for change in the actions and mindsets of whites towards blacks. Today African Americans need a change in OUR actions and mindsets towards our own community and what defines it.
Martin Luther King, Jr. I Have a Dream Speech, Excerpt Delivered 28 August 1963 at the Lincoln Memorial, Washington D.C. "And when this happens, and when we allow freedom 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! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!3" Remember this day very clearly as well as the day of his assassination, funeral and events that followed and preceded watching it on the television. Watching his daughter Berniece laying her mothers lap and her mothers face beneath the veil in shock. To me I was that little Berniece that day too! Press Release
