Martin Luther King:

“I”I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”

Jesse Jackson, video:

If you pass comment on the Reverend Jackson’s distinct lack of character, he will call you a racist.  It is race merchants like Jackson who are killing King’s dream, circa 1963 version.

About half the murder victims cited by Jackson are black, as are about half of the murders.    So who would bear the burnt of Jackson’s demand for more gun control, the black criminals who don’t obey the laws in the first place or their black victim?

I don’t pretend to be able to follow the trajectory of King’s philosophy, where it went,  or where it would have gone.    However I do fully endorse King vision of August 28, 1963.   Dr. King’s “I have a dream” speech may the most eloquent speech ever given on American soil.  It the speech which defines King in the eyes of the Americans who honor him.

To just what version of  King,  for which Jackson is pining,  I do not know.
