On Martin Luther King (Jr) Day, I thought it important that we take a moment to reflect upon the man. Not the distorted politically-correct, left-leaning concoction the Left has invented, but the real man and his real cause.

Martin Luther King jr. is way more than just his "I Have A Dream" speech, but sadly to some people that is all he's known for.  Because of King we are no longer segregated, we have our equal rights, and most importantly we have our freedom.  So when you think of Dr. Martin Luther King jr. think of all that he has went through and done for us to be where we are today.

 we believe martin Luther king stood for a great cause and not only as a leader but conducting such marches and speeches nonviolently really showed his character to be someone different with high morals and class for not only him self but for the black community as well

Racial Segregation

Racial Segregation | Black History | Scoop.it

Racial Segregation provides a means of maintaining the economic advantages and superior social status of the politically dominant group, and in recent times it has been employed primarily by white populations to maintain their ascendancy over other groups by means of legal and social colour bars. 


Racial segregation has appeared in all parts of the world where there are multiracial communities, except where racial amalgamation has occurred on a large scale, as in Hawaii and Brazil. In such countries there has been occasional social discrimination but not legal segregation.
