As we celebrate what would have been Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s 85th birthday, here are my thoughts:
Dr. King would marvel at the election and reelection of our first Black president...but would cringe at the racial backlash President Obama has received since being in office.
Dr. King would celebrate the 49th Anniversary of the Voting Rights Act...but would cringe at the new voter suppression laws around the country and the countless Americans/African Americans who are too lazy to vote.
Dr. King would applaud the numerous business giants in the Black community, but would cringe at the wealth gap between Whites and people of color.
Dr. King would want to shake the hand of every educational achiever, but would cringe at the achievement gap among urban youth in the US and beyond.
These are four areas of opportunity and concern from a “King” perspective.
