King's dream has died
Letter to the Editor:
We live in a nation that has a black president. His election was made possible due to a large number of white voters who chose to vote for him. In fact, without the white vote, Obama could not have been elected. This should have put to rest the constant cries of racism in America. But, it hasn't. If we disagree with our president we are immediately labeled racist.
There is an old saying to the effect that if you can't stop the message, then shoot the messenger. When people come up with legitimate objections to our present administration's policies, there are those who will shoot them down with the cries of racism.
Martin Luther King's most famous dream was that there would come a day when people would not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the quality of their character. The policies of an administration represent the character of that administration. The constant cries of racism are doing more to destroy King's dream than to bring it to reality. In fact, if because of someone's race, we are not allowed to disagree with his policy, then King's dream has died. It has been shot down by the very people who will support a person because of his race with no consideration of his character.
