So where are the voices speaking up about these issues? Last Saturday on the D.C. Mall, I only heard empty platitudes, pointless rhetoric and political agenda speeches. Orwell stated, "In a universe of deceit, truth becomes a revolutionary act."
Dr. King advocated we evaluate the content of one's character. However, in 2008 Americans voted for someone as president based upon the color of his skin. In 2012, Americans used the same criteria and made the same choice.
Perhaps that is the lesson learned from the legacy of Dr. King's speech, character matters.
