I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves
and will bash in the heads of the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood. and get no approbation from the President or their community.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of
freedom and justice EBT cards and bastard babies.
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 and not by the content of their character.
I have a dream today.
I have a dream that one day down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of interposition and nullification -- one day right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls
as sisters and brothers. and beat them to a pulp on school buses.
I have a dream today.
I have a dream that one day every
valley politician shall be exalted, and every hill and mountain shall be made low exactly the same height by law, the rough places will be made plain like Detroit, and the crooked places will be made straight like Chicago, and the glory of the Lord The One shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together.
Sons Of Barack's!
