“Dream Deferred” a poem by Langston Hughes is all I can say when thinking about the state of Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream Speech.” King is still a revolutionary and will always remain a beacon of hope for the African-American community. Yet, the words spoken in his dream has not came to pass.
There is still so much social injustice that can be seen. I sometime ask is because the advancements in technology that stories of injustice traveler faster or is technology just the means of spreading the truth to receive justice.
Justice that has been sought since King gave his speech August 28, 1963. A speech pleading for equality for Black people something that police brutality makes evident will not happen in the near future.
Yes some may say that Black people have made progress since that time and I agree on that, but the progress we made is not enough. The color of someone’s skin should not make them superior and this is something that still needs to change.
And like King said, “We can never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality.”
