King's dream hasn't come true.
Our Nation hasn't embraced Obama's mixed racial background at all. He is a true example of what a melting pot America is, but to everyone that talks about him he is a black man... I don't get it
If you don't think a lot of people voted for Obama because of his skin color and not political stance, I wouldn't agree. The same type deal for Republicans... People have all sorts of reasons for their choices.
The great thing is we have those choices to make, and we are a great group of people as a whole.
Racism is alive and well. Look up the google vid of little brandon telling a reporter that romney would send blacks to "go pick crops" if he was elected. Obviously taught this by his approving father who was in the background listening to him.
Here is another example showing that racism is as real today as when MLK was alive: http://detroit.cbslocal.com/2012/11/...-as-state-rep/
In this story an 8 time felon is elected to office. Thats right.....8 TIME FELON!!! His most recent felony was in 2004. He has no past experience yet was elected to office. Anyone who doubts that his skin color played a role is delusional.
