Today in the US people are paying tribute the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King.
A lot of times I decline to write about what everyone else is. I often think many of us lost the meaning of what was going on in the civil rights movement. The people of all races that love this man, loved him because he wanted equality of all people. This is stronger than just Black & White race relations during that time. It was the base of the foundation that would stop discrimination of someone just because they were not like you.
I realize by living outside the US this was very much needed in the US. America is a multicultural country & discrimination only keeps the dominant race in power & any others poorer. Although the problem at the time seemed to happen between blacks & whites, latinos, asians, muslims, homosexuals, indians also had to bear the burden of discrimination.
Things are better than they were 50 years ago in terms of Civil Rights & opportunities that you can have regardless of your race, gender, or color. Let’s try to encourage each other for advancement. Advancement of all people.
This is my tribute to a great man. If it wasn’t for freedom fighters like you I wouldn’t have any of my life experiences I cherish.
