In King’s speech, he claimed: “America has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her citizens of color are concerned.” Then proclaimed: “So we have come to cash this check…” Most people recognize that he was not talking about money, but he was talking about certain human rights that should be granted to all U.S. citizens. Discuss at least two of those rights and comment on the extent to which you believe those rights have been provided for citizens of color in today’s America. Provide reasons and examples to support your view.
All rights to every human in America is the same regardless of color or ethnicity. There aren’t any rights that color doesn’t have that white does. A legal citizen of America all have the same rights.
Example: all Americans have the right to vote – over the age of 18 of course. And all Americans have the right to choose their work and homes.
I personally believe that the media and politicians play the fiddle very well. Both cause discord and anger so, therefore humans get angry especially when both the government and the media have an agenda. I don’t believe what is out on media until I am given the entire story…in my opinion there are three sides to every story – the right one, the wrong one and the truth.
His speech was to wipe out the color in a person’s eyes….to not even see color….but the media has hurt that dream.
