Today, we honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.; an advocate for civil and human rights, and one of the famous faces of the Civil Right Movement of the 50s and 60s.
To think that just 60 years ago, the hatred Caucasians placed against us was rampant and strong against us. So bad that people in power who were meant to work for the good of the people instead placed laws like Jim Crow to segregate us, discriminate against us, and disadvantage us to make achieving the same things a white can could ridiculously difficult. They even structured the economic system to work against us, aiding the white man while making sure the black man or woman stayed inferior in society.
In the Deep South, they hated us so badly that they would rally against our peaceful protests for civil rights and assault us with the intent to cause bad damage, call us vulgar words full of hatred, and go as far to threaten us and our families with death threats. The Ku Klux Klan, intent on establishing white supremacy, and at the time intent on killing us, at one point around this time had millions of active members.
To think that this was America’s truth only 60 years ago. I am privileged to be able to live a life of much more equality, and I am thankful for the sacrifices Dr. King and all the other civil rights advocates made to make this future a possibility. Dr. King sacrificed a life, a priceless thing never to be taken for granted, so that we can live a life of love, peace, and equality. ————————————————————————
We must continue the fight against against ignorance and hatred. We need to dismantle the prejudice against us. Racism in this country is still rampant and affects too many lives to this day. White supremacy is starting to grow again. We will continue the fight our predecessors started until we can truly call America a place of freedom and equality!
