The dream died 37 years ago today

The Heretik reminds us that the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated 37 years ago today. As we mourn the death of another prince of peace, let us also mourn the death of MLK's dream of a land where all men are born equal, where every little child has all the opportunity in the world limited not by color or race or economic class, a dream that is gone now, lost in violence and lost in hate, lost in fear and lost in tears. Goodbye, MLK. Goodbye.

  1. Things are ever changing, ever flowing. I refuse to give up on MLKs dream. It's just taking longer to get there than I expected.


Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
