Young brother have we fulfilled Martin’s dream? No we have not come close to the fulfillment of Martin's dream. Martin's speech was given in response to economic as well as political inequalities within America. Fact is...economic inequality in many areas have gotten worst, the issue of class has yet to be answered, and it is widely accepted that the truest struggle amongst mankind is between the proletariat and bourgeoisie rather than a racial struggle. Martin's dream spoke directly to international conflict, last I checked, the Palestinian -Israeli conflict is stooping to new lows, and I do not mean that in a good way. Black male incarceration is at all time highs, many of which classified as non violent drug offenses, which directly correlates to unemployment and poor education. Martin spoke of the creation of employment opportunity, unemployment in african as well as latino communities are at all time highs. Inequality in education is at it's worst. Until enrolling at Depaul University this year, in Chicago I have never shared a classroom with a white student, I have never lived next door to a white person, and that is a common theme on the south, north and west sides of Chicago. It is great that Obama is our new president, but it is worst that there is only one African American in the Senate. The issue is about class and always have been about class, not white and black....not white and black...not white and black. We must begin to view Martin's philosophy in its entirety and not nit-pick what's convenient for our own personal solace.
