Has Martin Luther King Jr.'s vision been fulfilled?

  • It was always equal

    Nothing has to change because nothing was wrong. The people of the African american race need to accept that they are a lower class then the rest of us and need to live with that way of life. They should go back to Africa where there race is now. Thanks

  • He is satisfied

    In Martin Luther Kings speech he has a whole bunch of lines that talk about him being satisfied and not only him but the black community.
    "We cannot be satisfied until we gain lodging in the motels of highways and the hotels of the cities. We cannot be satisfied as long as the Negroes basic mobility is from a smaller ghetto to a larger one. We can never be satisfied as long as a Negro in Mississippi cannot vote and a Negro in New York believes he has nothing for which to vote." -MLK's I Have a Dream Speech
    What I get out of this is that he would be satisfied if he was here today and when he says he wants people to be judged by the content of their character there is no law that can be set in place that would let this happen. It is all in peoples head and what they think and what society thinks. But I can honestly say most of America judges people by the content of their character.

  • The equalness has been fufilled

    Kids can go to school now together regardless of what color they are. Black and whites have the same opportunities in life; no one is treated differently anymore based on the color of their skin. There is no discrimination or judging someone based on the color of their skin. Even though racism has changed a lot, some people still judge black people and dislike them. But the majority of the people in today’s society aren’t racist. As we look how things are today, from MLK's days, things have really changed. Racism isn’t that of a big thing as it was back then, blacks and whites weren’t allowed to interact with each other. Interracial marriages happen now. Blacks and whites often get married. 20% of interracial marriages happen now-a-days. Another way that his dream been fulfilled is that schools have no forced segregation in them.

  • Martin Luther King Jr.'s Vision Fulfilled

    Many years ago Martin Luther King Jr. set out to fulfill a dream. There is no doubt that his dream came true. Extreme changes have taken place since he began his journey. At that time most never could envisioned the great changes and the vast outcome for the good of all.

  • Africa is bad

    Blacks aren't as good as whites they have always been underclass and need to go back to Africa I mean seriously go back to Africa you don't belong here at at at at at at att at at at at at att zt tztzt zt tz tz tzt z all

  • His dream has been fulfilled

    Although many people storm the streets with signs reading back lives matter, they are just throwing tantrums because they think they are being heavily discriminated. The truth is that, not just the nation, the whole world has changed dependent on racism and blacks and whites may now live together without heavy discrimination like it used to be.

  • I dislike how people are bringing up race.

    MLK was not about racial equality, he was about equality for every single last person no matter what race, sex, sexual preference, etc. So no, his vision hasn't been fulfilled, but hopefully in m lifetime it will. Our country is making major advancements socially. We are becoming slowly more accepting of others.

  • Not in full.

    While African Americans have basic human rights, they are still treated differently by potential employers as an example. Basic rights doesn't necessarily guarantee equality, as demonstrated by legislature such as the earlier Black Codes and Jim Crowe laws. We cannot truly say that we don't treat them differently, I don't believe that stereotypes can be erased from ones mind, no matter how outrageous or untrue, there will always be a set of behaviors that precede an individual without yet knowing anything about his/her background. Ideas such as affirmative action seek to change this, but it does what it seeks to end, giving advantage to a group based solely on their race.

  • Martin Luther King Jr.'s vision has not been fulfilled.

    Martin Luther King's vision was to eliminate "race". He wanted people not to judge each other on whether they are "black" or "white". He wanted people to be categorized by who they are in the inside, not by what color their skin in. Race shouldn't even be a word. When you apply for a job, people shouldn't need to know what skin color you are before they consider hiring you. The color of a person's skin isn't going to effect their working. Therefore Martin Luther King's Jr.'s vision has not been fulfilled yet.

  • Still Not Yet

    Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream was to bring down the color barrier and to have a color blind society. He wanted people not to be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character, but because of racial quotas by affirmative action, people are judged by the color of their skin daily. So instead of discrimination going away, it is now state sponsored, therefore his dream of a colorblind society has still not been fulfilled.

  • Not at all.

    Most people misunderstand Martin Luther King Jr.'s message. His message wasn't specifically centered towards African-Americans, but to all people. The idea that all people could get rid of the race barrier and become one, as human beings. The reason that this failed is because people liked the message, and call me a conspirator, but I don't think that the government liked that too much. The federal government needs things to be divided in order to get the most power, as they say, 'United we stand, divided we fall.' So, as people were uniting, and the threat of a well informed people grew, someone shot and killed Martin Luther King Jr. in an effort to disband the movement of equality. As we can see today, the federal government has gotten more and more power because the people are divided, just as the government wants. I hope that a movement starts again, and the people become well informed, and maybe we can take this country back, but as of right now, we are divided, and we are falling. In summation, no, sadly, Martin Luther King Jr.'s vision has not been fulfilled, but if we want it to get fulfilled, America will need a revolution of sorts to disband this crippling, dividing federal government.

  • Not completely.

    There have been many great improvements made since Martin Luther King's journey to equality. However, the society is not quite there yet. Yeah, Obama became president but that does not mean racial issues don't exist any longer. There is still systematic racism built in our society. Until all races are seen and treated equally, and until the many societal barriers are torn down, his vision is not completely fulfilled.

  • We Still Have a Long Way To Go

    Dr. King's dream of equality has yet to be fulfilled. Every day, all over the news, there are examples of people being treated wrongfully for reasons beyond their control, including race and sexuality. I think Dr. King would be horrified by the state of the world today. Legal rights are being withheld from minority groups, and the majority is just sitting back and letting it happen.

  • No

    The core of the ideas that I took away from his attitudes and speeches while I was in school is that he wanted to strive for a society where skin color is seen the same way that people see hair color or eye color. He wanted a society where skin color is merely a descriptive term and nothing more than that.

    Unfortunately, we live in a society that still bases so many things on skin color, from scholarships, to college admissions, to jobs.

  • No, it has not been fulfilled.

    There are many people still segregating against these humans. Why does "Black Lives Matter" exist if this is not still an issue? Even in this website, there are people saying, "Blacks aren't as good as whites they have always been underclass and need to go back to Africa". How stupid is that?

  • No, it hasn't

    Although racial segregation isn't as big of an issue as it was back then, not every individual is treated equally, like Dr. King says in his speech. If you look at people like transgenders or gay people, they are still discriminated today because of their sexual preference and for being transgender.
