Was Martin Luther King’s dream accomplished?
Its monday the 21st of january, today is one of history’s most cherished days.Its the day we remember the works of martin luther king and his dreams.
He is one of my greatest life inspirations because I rise my ideas from hate,pain ,racism and colorism.
As quoted ; ‘I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where there will not be judged by their skin colour but the content of their character,’
We have read so much of Martin Luther King and his desire to promote human equality. Can we say his works were worth it?
Its the hate and pain of colorism that is killing me silently.
The disgrace of poverty to fight back the insults of the enemy,
giving me power and willingness to write in continuation of the dreams of martin luther king and maybe be that african lion who tried to learn how to write in hope that stories
of history cease to glorify the hunter.
Who am I you may wonder, to write against the masters? Yes am dark skinned and poor, am african and do not meet up to the european standards of humanity.
I own nothing apart from my brains to qualify me for respect in world activities.
Am not a man, am not a prostitute, am not a thief, am not aggressive and am not sick am just a dark skin black girl. These negative labels are my skin’s burdens.
This skin is locked in chains of slavery and negativity.
I thought martin luther king worked so hard to see that one day his works will benefit the coming black generation against colorism and racism.
The coming generation which is now our generation.
If martin luther’s dream was a reality, why are we still valued in accordance to our skin colours?His hopes were just a word spoken and forgotten without impact.
His dream is still a dream of many of the black generation.
His dream is also my dream,
a dream of hope there will come a generation where black skin people will travel and live on any land of the earth without having to live through any generalised judgmental stereotypes.
insults and disrespect.
I hope there will come a generation where dark skin black women will be treated with respect in their difference and never be pulled down of value for not meeting up with
the expected european standards of humanity
