"I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." Truth?

  • Yes, although groups like Black Lives Matter are making it harder for Dr. King's dream to come true

    I'd say that for a good couple of years, nobody was being judged by their skin color on a large scale, and instead, people were judging people based off whatever their personality traits were. However, racial tensions are growing again, because as black communities crumble from the inside, groups such as Black Lives Matter decide to blame it one whites and cops (even though there are many cops belonging to minority groups). Riots happen every few weeks now, and social media websites as well as the news are littered with articles and posts about racial tension and BLM. Martin Luther King Jr., one of the greatest pacifists of our time, would be rolling in his grave if he were to see what Black Lives Matter is doing to America in the modern day.

  • We are getting there.

    We are making progress in terms of breaking racial barriers, but we still have plenty of work to do. Islamophobia, for example, is an ongoing problem. We should not think 'terrorist' if we see Muslims walking down the street. A group of radicals should not judge an entire race of people.

  • No not for a long time

    Racism is just as bad if not worse than in the 60s or 1800s. Black people are being killed, beaten and harassed by white cops every single day. All the rich neighborhoods are mostly white, and the poor neighborhoods are moslty black and latino. Donald trump was elected president, he has encouraged racism and homophobism. Black people are payed less and its easier for whites to be succesfull then blacks and latinos.Racial profiling is a big issue also. Blacks and latinos are more likely to be killed by cops. While blacks have the highest crime rate, that doesnt mean that they shouldnt be treated equally to whites. Many white conservatives have said horrifying things about obama, calling him a monkey, a nigger, a muslim, they also said he wasnt born in the US because he's black. Muslims are also viewed as terrorists to many white people due to the terror attacks that have been happening. Muslims will be temporarily banned from entering the US, Since trump was elected.
