Unless it's a cash register bell, the King children aren't interested.

He says "Let freedom ring" more times in the speech than "I have a dream."

He likes letting freedom ring.

If MLK were alive today to witness what his people have done with his dream he would say "I had a nightmare!".

* ....that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed. We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal.

* ....that one day out in the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slaveowners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.

* ....that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.

* ....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 their character.

* ....that one day down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of interpostion and nullification; that one day right down 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.

* ....that one day every valley shall be engulfed, every hill shall be exalted and every mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plains and the crooked places will be made straight and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together.

I have a plan.  I have an antique farm bell mounted on a post, in my back yard.  Basic small "Liberty Bell model" that was also used on ships.  3pm ESDST, that mutha farker's gonna ring. Loud.

Is there more hubbub this year or...*checks other threads*...ah, 50 years.

Is ridiculous as this sounds, I wish programs would help poor people regardless of their color, including white people.
I've actually seen white people show resentment for not getting support even though they are at least as poor as others benefiting from said programs.

So, you saw a poor white person and a poor black person and you got enough of their personal information to make the determination that the white person was being treated unfairly?

Sounds...iffy.

In before the thread devolves into racist "jokes" about how black people aren't living King's Dream.

Black Lawyers, Directors, TV/Film stars, CEO's, SCOTUS Judges, Congressmen, and president.

If you choose to be successful, you will be. Don't whine that spending your welfare check on a bigscreen TV isn't making you rich and your children successful.

I figured it was part of the viewpoint of the person showing the resentment, not the person making the post. Maybe that was my mistake.

I read the whole speech and I don't remember him having a dream about the use of belts. Maybe you can point me to that passage.

You alleged that you knew white people who were "as poor as the blacks receiving assistance, who showed resentment for not getting support even though they were as poor as the blacks who WERE receiving it. In order for that statement to be true you have to know:

> How much income the random black family was making
> How much income the resentful whites were making
> The number of children each family had and what, if any, income the working aged children brought home.
> The kind of assistance each family was seeking...etc.

Without this information, I do not know how you could reach the conclusion that they were "just as poor" as the blacks who receive assistance, to perpatuate the myth that social services are race-based.

The only bell I wish to hear ringing is the watch bell on the ship transporting them back to Africa. By them I mean the ones who did not complete high school and or the ones on government assistance. I am fine with the ones who took responsibility and joined society instead of just leeching off it claiming they are oppressed.

Life is hard. I try. I'm not a loser. I have a decent-paying job, and I also have a shiat-ton of student loan debt. I also didn't start out dirt-poor. Many out there have it worse than I have, and they'll be saddled with twice the student-loan debt that I have, which means they'll be poor for quite some time, even after trying.
