Forclosure of a dream
I meant to write this blog on MLK day, however, I was busy and I kept putting it off.
Dr. King's famous speech states that his dream was that the words in the constitution would ring true, that all me would be treated as equals. So, the question needs to be asked, why the hell is there such a thing as 'Affirmative Action'. Why is there such a thing as a hate crime (in any capacity).
A job should go to those with the most qualifications and skills, they should not be decided by the color of a man's skin.
Hate is the basis for many crimes, racially motivated crimes are no more hate crimes than when a man who hates the government defaces city hall.
I have to wonder just what Dr. king would say if he were still here today, I honestly think it would be something along the lines of, "This isn't quite what I was talking about."
