Itia's insight:

As we look back at racism today, we realize how horrible it was and in many ways it has made plenty of people a better person.

Itia's insight:

Racial segregation in the United States has meant the physical separation and provision of separate facilities (especially during the Jim Crow era), but it can also refer to other manifestations of racial discrimination such as separation of roles within an institution, such as the United States Armed Forces up to the 1950s when black units were typically separated from white units but were led by white officers. After Congress passed the Reconstruction Act of 1867, the ratification of the Fifteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution in 1870 providing the right to vote, and the Civil Rights Act of 1875 forbidding racial segregation in accommodations, Federal occupation troops in the South assured blacks the right to vote and to elect their own political leaders. The Reconstruction amendments asserted the supremacy of the national state and the formal equality under the law of everyone within it.However this radical Reconstruction era would collapse because of multidimensional racialism related to the spread of democratic idealism (progressivism). What began as region wide passage of ‘Jim Crow’ segregation laws that focused on issues of equal access to public activities and facilities would by 1910 have spread throughout the south, mandating the segregation of whites and blacks in the public sphere.

The Real Martin Luther King, Jr. Not the Man Liberals Claim « The ... | Separate but Equal | Scoop.it
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.

Itia's insight:

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

I choose this one because if Martin Luther King Jr . were alive he would demand that we take more urgent notice of the fact that we still live in a world. Also I feel like they would be less racism too.
