IN MEMORY OF A GREAT DREAM

 

Rosa sat so Martin could walk …
Martin walked so Barack could run …
Barack ran so all our children could fly …
*
There is no doubt in my mind that Martin Luther King would have rejoiced the day Obama was elected President of the United States. His dream was finally realised ….
*
Or was it??
*
The dream did not include the continuation of illegal wars …
Nor the racial profiling and hate crimes in the streets …
Nor the use of drones against innocent civilians …
Nor the erosion of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
*
The dream spoken about above was supposed to set us free, but we still have a long way to go.
*
Don’t Give Up The Fight!
*
*
This could be the end result …

    Barak was a fraud from day one. It should have been obvious when an unknown goes from state senator to us senator to president in under four years. While pickle-brained women were swooning over him in 2008, major parts of his background where “whitewashed” to conceal a career deeply intertwined with the CIA. One more robot for the empire.
