“Learn to love your white brothers and sisters, don’t drink from the cup of bitterness, hate and grudges”
–Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
No doubt Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had a dream of racial harmony, racial unity, and bringing blacks and whites closer together. In chapter one,”We Still Angry,” you’ll read which of today’s civil rights leaders said, “Get ready, George Washington, there’s a new neighbor on the Potomac. Get ready Mr. Jefferson, there’s a new neighbor on the Potomac. Get ready Mr. Lincoln, there’s a new neighbor, and we (blacks) are all coming to help him move in. We brought our luggage, we brought our food. Guess who’s coming to dinner?” Those divisive words were spoken at a dedication ceremony for the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. monument on August 28, 2011. That cup should have been emptied decades ago, but today’s black African American leaders and spokespeople are diligent in efforts to keep it overflowing. — Doug Saint Carter, Author
