It’s been 53 years since Dr. King called us to action:
“I have a dream that one day my four little children will live in a nation where they will be judged not by the color of their skin but the content of their character.”
Alas, 53 years later, this dream is not yet reality. Two charts should illustrate:
Colleges, funded by loans from my tax dollars, are discriminating on the basis of race. This is an outrage!
But the arc of history bends towards justice. Before this week is out, we will have a new president, a president who will finally help achieve Dr. King’s vision.
President Donald Trump will appoint judges to the Supreme Court who will uphold our civil rights laws, and the Fourteenth Amendment, and insist that colleges stop discriminating on the basis of race. He will boldly appoint these judges in the teeth of opposition from race-baiting liars like Congressman John Lewis, who have a vested interest in preserving the status quo and denying Americans social justice.
It’s been an arduous journey, but, on Friday, we’ll be one step closer to realizing Dr. King’s dream.
