Academy postpones 2021 Oscars, will announce new diversity rules
"I'm Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown Twenty Years Matt Bellamy my usual Banter Buddy on the business and Matt the Ninety Third Academy Awards ceremony has been pushed from February twenty eighth to April twenty fifth for. Obvious reasons. The eligibility period for films which normally would end on December thirty first. It's been extended to February twenty eighth twenty twenty, one. Because of you know. These films have not had opportunity to play or necessarily get the kind of attention. They would normally get. That's the argument now. The Oscars has been pushed before in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight, due to La Flooding, and then in sixty eight because of the assassination of Dr Martin Luther King and again in one, thousand, nine, hundred, one, because of the attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan so I. Think it's fair to conclude that. When they pushed the Oscar ceremony something very very bad is happening as it is now, but this was necessary. However, if you're ABC, just from a business point of view, this is bad news. Also yeah I mean there's A. A couple ramifications here one is for ABC I mean this is their super bowl. They count on a ton of AD revenues about hundred forty hundred fifty million dollars in ad revenue last year that they can usually count on in February that is now pushed out of q one into cue to if the Oscars take place as planned which are that's a big question mark. Will we have big scale events with celebrities walking a red carpet even in April of next year? We don't know the second is the impact on the film released calendar because. Because assuming at some point that movies do comeback and we start to get movies released in theaters again these big year end movies that everybody sees every year and you know come out around Christmas time and get a lot of the awards attention and go on to win Oscars that window is now going to shift into the January February march window, which is going to change a lot of strategies for these film companies because you don't now have to crowd. You're movie into that year end corridor in order to make an impact with Oscar voters. Voters, you can give it a little bit more time and that February. March time period is usually a dumping ground where you don't put your best movies now. Maybe you're going to put your best movies there because you know, you can get Oscar attention as well as some box office. Yeah, and what's really still very unclear win theaters will open theaters, clinging to to July, as is as our Warner Brothers with Christopher Nolan's ten and a couple of Disney with Milan they push tenant two weeks i. don't really get how that solves anything but. It makes us so they're not I now Milan will be I will be the Guinea pig, so to speak and then Warner. Brothers we'll have tended after that, so they won't be the Guinea Pig the other thing that is. Speaking of Guinea Pigs. The academy is going to try to do require going forward diversity as a criterion for eligibility for Oscar and they haven't specified what that means I I would certainly not argue with the goal Hollywood has been very very stuck for a very long time in terms of diversity goals, but you know it's something where they have to be very careful. You can't just mandate something like that without really choosing how it works, you know and and again. I want to stress how I totally support that goal, but you're sort of a strange territory telling creative people you must do X. and we don't know what xs yet, but you know. This is something where I think. There's a swimming Zaidi that it will end up being like the most popular picture category that ultimately just sort of went away. This should work, but the question is how yeah! It's a big question because you know for years and years, the academy has always said that the diversity problem is not the academy's problem. It is Hollywood's problem, and it's just at the Oscars are reflection of what the industry is doing, so you shouldn't blame the academy for the diversity problems of Hollywood. This is a flip of that. They're saying we are taking this on. On as an organization and saying that you will not be able to be eligible for an Oscar unless you adhere to some basic diversity principles, and they have yet to articulate what those are, so they just WanNa. See what the logistics are going to
Biden Says George Floyd’s Death Had Bigger Global Impact Than MLK's Assassination
"The likely democratic nominee for president says George Floyd's death had a bigger worldwide impact that that the assassination of Dr Martin Luther king junior vice president Joe Biden said during a Philadelphia roundtable today about re opening businesses that it's been something to see protests around the world because of Floyd's death while in the custody of Minneapolis police officers Biden said support is high for the nation to address police
"It's been a week of anger, anguish and heartbreak here in New York City. And across the country. Massive protests over George Loyd's murder under the knee of a police officer. had been met with repeated widespread violence by militarized police. The threat of active duty military being deployed to control citizens exercising their constitutional rights. The ongoing drumbeat of white supremacy coming from the White House. The People's House now, an embattled presidency fortress peaceful protesters described as terrorists. From day to day and hour to hour, I've been alternately sickened and heartened. Filled with despair, and then lifted up by the voices of people across the country, demanding revolutionary change because black lives matter. And making a history, we're proud and humbled to stand with them. All black lives matter. LGBTQ black lives matter. On Wednesday afternoon I was sitting at my desk and heard noise I couldn't identify coming through my open window. My partner born and I went outside to see what was going on. Thousands of protesters marching of Ninth Avenue as far as the I could see wearing masks, carrying signs and chanting. They were heading north, and in a few blocks be passing the apartment complex where fired Rushton once lived. He was a principal architect of the march on Washington for jobs and freedom. In August nine hundred and sixty three, a quarter of a million Americans massed in Washington D. C. at the foot of the Lincoln memorial to demand an end to state sanctioned racism. In this revisiting the archive episode, you'll hear buyers Rushton in his own words. In, addition to coordinating the nineteen sixty three march on Washington, fired was one of the organizers of the very first freedom ride through the American south in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty seven. And was mentor to Dr. Martin Luther, King Junior from the time of the Montgomery bus boycott. Barred Rushton was a proud black gay man who paid a high price for proclaiming who he was long before. It was remotely safe to do so. He put himself in harm's way over and over again subjected to attacks by white supremacists who uses race and sexuality to try to destroy him. But not only resisted triumphed. You're about to hear. An interview fired rust and gave on February fifth nineteen, eighty, six a year and a half before he died.

Walter was also buyers assistant, and you can hear the sound of him in the next room through much of the interview. It's thanks to Walter who recorded the conversation and save it for decades in a box under their bed that we're able to hear Byron speak in this rare interview about the impact of his sexuality on his work in the civil rights movement. So, let's join peg Byron admired rusting desk and listen to history from a man who changed its course. To know mind now, let's play all right. Walters doing some research. On me.

"The O'Hara's says that Reagan's John was to frame king story as another example of American exceptionalism quote. We had an injustice and we corrected it. It's all about the power of individuals in the power of American democracy, these will be key elements in terms of how the civil rights movement comes to be memorialized international culture. By nineteen eighty seven four years after the creation of Mlk Day and nearly twenty years after King's murder on a hotel balcony in Memphis Tennessee, a full seventy six percent of Americans had a favorable opinion of king, and those numbers only continued to grow by nineteen ninety nine king came in second on a Gallup survey of twentieth century individuals that Americans admired most behind mother theresa. Political Scientists Sheldon Appleton wrote in one, thousand, nine, hundred, five younger college educated White Americans tended to support king, and both of these demographics were larger in nineteen, eighty-seven, than in nineteen, sixty six. He also noted that the widespread lack of knowledge about king and the civil rights movement in general, might have also influenced earlier perceptions. Appleton wrote perhaps recent media. Treatment of King has helped to induce selective memory by some middle, aged and older Americans. Of course Americans have every reason to venerate Martin Luther, King and to celebrate his accomplishments. He didn't do it alone, and he had his flaws like any other human, but as carton explains he also had an undeniable gift for challenging, Americans, then, and now to make good on the promise of our founding principles Carson said he had that ability to link the goals of the civil rights struggle to.

Creating a Culture of Contribution with Tom Rath
"There's this crazy thing going on right now. The United States is filled with people that deeply want to care about the work that they do every single day and at the same time the United States is simultaneously filled with business owners. Who are desperately looking for people that care about the work that they do every single day. So why exactly? Can't we figure this out? Why can't we bridge this gap from the Ramsey network? This is the entree leadership podcasts. Where we help business leaders grow themselves their teams in their profits. I'm your host Alex Judd. And today we're talking to world renowned researcher and the best selling author of the new book. Life's great question. Tom Rath and in the mountains of data that he has collected on high-performing leaders teams in the workplace. He's found one very specific pattern a pattern. That could help bridge the gap between leaders and their teams. That pattern is an increased focus on contribution. Yeah you know one of the things that I realized pretty quickly as I started to look at the broad challenges that we face out there. Today in terms of the fundamental relationships people have with their work which on average across organizations are nowhere near as good as they could be one of the challenges. Is that There's just a huge misalignment between all of the individual talent. That's out there in the marketplace today. And what the world needs and so you know we've been pretty good over the last hundred. Two Hundred Years. It aligning products and services with what customers need. But we haven't made anywhere. As near as biggest strides in terms of matching individuals are with the demands that are out there in the workforce today. And what I realized as I dug deeper into this as we've done a pretty good job of helping people to understand their own talents there on passions and their own interests. But we really haven't done much with trying to determine what are all unique ways in which we can contribute to others lives in a real meaningful and productive way and you know I was deeply inspired by one of my favorite quotes from Dr Martin Luther King Junior and I something I asked myself. Every single day which was his famous quote about life's most persistent and urging question is. What are you doing for others boy? I think that's just a great way to Orient. Your Day orients your day around contribution and adding to things that will continue to grow in your absence. So that's what helped to focus a lot of this work powerful as you were saying that I was thinking about that John F. Kennedy. Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country. And it's amazing how The Martin Luther King Quote John F. Kennedy quote. There's something that when we hear that we kinda say that's right. That's what I need to be spending my time on and it's related to that topic of contribution so I'd like to know. How do you define that word contribution? Yeah you know it's interesting. I worked through a lot and was the first thing about. How do you help people to connect with a purpose or meaningful work which you hear a lot about it when I really got into the practical application of how do you get? People focused outward instead of inward every day and focused on how they're adding another person's contribution is really about the small bricks that you're adding to a wall over time essentially and it's more of the things that you're doing in the next hour today that might had to someone else's well being might inspire someone a day from now that in my case with my kids might contribute to their development and growth even five ten years down the road on days. When I'm not there helping so I think contribution I would define it as anything you do. That has a positive influence on another human being the continues to grow in your absence and those things usually start small and grow over time continues to grow in your absence. Why that Fraser? Why is that important as part of this definition? Well you know that's important to me from some of my own personal learnings. I talk in the opening of this book about how when I was sixteen years old. I was diagnosed with a real rare condition. I went blind in one eye. Because of it and doctors told me that I would be likely to have cancer. In my kidneys and pancreas and spine over whatever course of a life. I might live and I've battled cancer and all those areas and I bring that up because what it did was even from that young age over the last twenty five years. It got me very focused on. What are all the that I can work on this afternoon? Then we'll continue to grow tomorrow week from now year from now and eventually when I'm gone and what I've learned that experience there is you know it may sound kind of morbid from the outset but when you start to think like that it really does get you focused on more productive efforts during the day and things that you can feel good about tomorrow and many years from now and he gets you focused on what I would call or what I think I David Brooks talked about this about a year ago New York Times Column More Eulogy Values instead of things that go on a resume that are more sterile and tactical so it almost sounds like you're talking about like a mindset or an attitude for leaders but also just for individual team members is this mindset developed like do you have to go through a life altering transformative experience like you did to change your mindset or is it learned or how can we build up this kind of way of looking at the world that contribution is the first thing that we're thinking about. Yeah you know. I think it's like a lot of habits is a great question because it's in my experience in working with people working layers. It's bill with repetitions and it's built one day at a time and if you can step back and say in the next three hours what could you do? Even for fifteen or twenty minutes that would make a meaningful contribution to the growth and development of one other human being whether that's someone who looks to you for leadership whether that's a customer whether that's a family member just taking that daily focus is what helps you to build cumulative days that are better and better as time goes on and you know the other thing. I've learned that's been. I'm through this project in the last year with the book and the website around contribution is the more time you can allocate. That's directed outward toward contribution to others in meaningful efforts during the day. It actually minimizes a lot of the normal stressors that we have with all the things flying at us and all the pressures and demands of the day. And the more time you spend looking inward it actually leads to more insecurities more stress in the like where when you can anchor. Even a few of your efforts outward it takes a lot of that pressure off in the process. That's pretty remarkable. And I love that you talk about it as a habit because that sounds like something I can take action on. That sounds like something I can control. That sounds like something. Every leader can invest their time into. So what is the practical action? People can take daily or maybe even hourly to just start moving their mind towards an attitude and a posture of contribution. Yeah I think that's where it starts. It starts with bringing the humanity back into the work that we do on a daily basis and having conversations about it with our team members because one of the things that I realized when I got into. This is every time we sit down as a team to start a new effort instead of looking at other members of the team joining the group and saying what's there background. What is their resume. Look like what's their bio. What's their job description? We need to sit down and have a more personal conversation about who we are and why we do what we do each day. So that's why as part of this book. I put together a resource for people where they can go through and say. What are the big roles you play in life so for me? That's being a dad and a husband and a researcher and sometimes a writer and what have been the most influential life experiences that have shaped by what I do and so if you sit around and talk about that as a team had helped to bid and then maybe most importantly anytime you bring a group of people together or the whether that's two or three or five or fifteen people if each person can go around and say how do I think I can make a unique contribution of this team because so often we all get excited about something and we're just off and running without even having a discussion to make sure that each of us feels like we can make a meaningful contribution and we're doing that in complementary ways instead of ways that essentially overlap and it takes six months to realize. Oh we were all doing the same thing

Can Sanders beat Trump? A growing number of Democratic voters say yes
"Joining me now from Columbia. South Carolina is the legendary civil rights activist former presidential candidate. The Reverend Jesse Jackson he won the South Carolina Democratic primary in both one thousand nine hundred eighty four and nineteen eighty eight Reverend Jackson. Thank you so much for being with us on intercepted before we talk about the specifics of Democratic Socialism. What's your response to these? Red baiting attacks against Senator Bernie Sanders seems to me if Bloomberg wonder feet trump run against trump and republican primary. This race began a year ago. He said the first ten rounds of the fight. The U on the fighting you live with around. He's I people tied and broke it. Kind of runs. Rochon them GRANDPA's rule. Do not make sense to me and have a white primary voters. And then you have New Hampshire. You Have Nevada and soft. Lana you the bother South Carolina Michigan Illinois on the Front side as a New Hampshire number. One number two. I think that you also have a situation. Where different parts of Super Tuesday?

Who's worth sixty billion dollars tech and burn about ten some Nice about Castro mentioned Batista? Things have people in context. I mean Batista.

So I'm concerned that even the capsule thing is seen as Democrat in the same season from Nineteen Fifty. Five thousand blast been lynched. Almost new president the thing about the the thing about it. You Know Reverend Jackson at the same time that we have these attack ads running against Bernie Sanders and this relation of Bernie Sanders comments during the period of the US dirty wars in central and Latin America you have this demonization of Sanders going on. Because he calls himself a democratic socialist. If I know my history correctly the late Dr Martin Luther King and of course you were with Dr Martin Luther King at the Lorraine Motel. You were there in the trenches everyday organizing in civil rights movement. Dr King also was red baited. Dr King also spoke of a democratic socialism and against savage capitalism. The operative word is democracy of one by the people we had democracy. And listen you. Cou exists democracy in women's right the boot coexist in democracy has denied the right to vote.

Reverend Jackson it seems that on the one hand you have Bernie Sanders running against Donald trump you have Bernie sanders running against his competitors in the Democratic primary but I would also assert that in a clear sense Bernie Sanders is also running against the DNC. The elite of the Democratic Party's leadership and really arcane rules that you also faced when you ran for president particularly in nineteen eighty-eight that seem to want to give the power brokers the shadow brokers of the Democratic Party. The final word on who the nominee is going to be. What is your assessment of the way that the Democratic Party governs itself during these primaries and specifically regarding the Sanders campaign that will emission do rent puzzlement to the action?

A Closer Look at the Black-Jewish Congressional Caucus
"January and February have been full of commemorative moments for both the black and Jewish Communities. The birthday of Martin Luther King Junior the death anniversary of Anne Frank International Holocaust remembrance and Black History Month we sat down individually with three founders of the Black Jewish congressional caucus democratic congresswoman Brenda Lawrence Democratic congresswoman. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Republican Congressman Lee Zeldin to discuss why the caucus exists the issues. They think it will address and why it's important for black and Jewish leaders to work together. Not Apart I I asked about the original purpose of the Black Jewish congressional caucus how that purpose has evolved since its conception and what the main issues the caucus to address we. I posed the question to chief. Founder Representative Brenda Lawrence when I went to my colleagues. And ask them if they would be interested in forming a black Jewish Caucus. Civically this administration. I have seen an uptick in divisiveness and Rachel tension and also hate crimes been reported as validated being on Increasing and we have such a strong and long history of lack American and the Jewish community coming together in those times when our country lost its way the Jewish community came to the support of the black community during the civil rights movement. We have shared experience between the Holocaust. Slavery of being people oppressed by no other reason except for who we are and We know and we feel uniquely the stereotypes in the tension that are often placed on us as black and Jewish citizens of this country. And we are here in Congress to write laws and policies to ensure quality to make sure that we're forcing the civil rights of this country and we should be having a unique conversation around this and I can tell you I was so impressed with the support and willingness in a bipartisan way to form the caucus so what are the main issues that the caucus hopes to address. Well I want to know that as we look at hate crimes and discrimination as anti Semitic. It's racist xenophobic Often go back to Martin Luther King. Our unity is born of our common struggle for centuries not only to rid ourselves bandage but to make oppression of any people by others impossible so when we plan or what. Our jackets is our is that we will make sure that we are uniquely informed. We are aware of these incidents and policies and situations where we see Racism not being addressed properly or being able or being nurtured and that we can pass policies and enforce loss through our justice system to ensure we're holding true to one nation under God indivisible with liberty and justice for all next. We asked Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz during the civil rights movement jewish-americans lent critical support to the N. Double ACP and fought alongside. Dr Martin Luther King Junior to challenge racial segregation in public accommodations and black leaders have stood with the Jewish community following the tragic shootings. At synagogues in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and POW California Joakim Prinz german-american Rabbi and refugee of Nazi. Germany represented the Jewish community as an organizer during the nineteen sixty three march on Washington. So that history is long and and significant and so the the The Black Jewish caucus is really important for us to be able to to retie those binds. And make sure that we can work on the modern day issues that are of mutual concern to both communities are purposes to assemble leaders to learn from one. Another advocate for joint concerns Regardless of party we believe And we exist because all partners are committed calling out hate and racism and discrimination anti-semitism and xenophobia whenever and wherever it rears its ugly head and you know our alliance in the Black Jewish caucus is really important so that we can work to honor and strengthen and safeguard the bond of our communities that have been developed in the struggle for equality in America. Then we asked representative Lee Zeldin. There is a need to better bridge the gap between the Jewish community and the black community and understanding a long rich history of the the black community fighting for on behalf of with the Jewish Committee and community and vice versa This isn't a new concept for us to be working closely and back in World War. Two was seven sixty first tank battalion. Bed Liberated gun skirt skin and God almost four hundred medals for their heroics their efforts and it was Jewish members who stood side by side with the black community during the civil rights push and some actually ended up giving up their lives in that fight for Justice and equality fast forward to two thousand and nineteen. This was announced in June But we were talking to each other about it for a few months leading up to that. Brenda Lawrence Really did a fantastic job taking a lead initiative. The American Jewish Committee was also influential and helpful with that. 'cause how has it evolved since then? I would say that more and more people have expressed interest in being part of it so it's become a bigger and it's allowed us to build a stronger network and we've seen a divide close But the challenges still exist and we just had a Hanukkah in two thousand nineteen that was marked by violent antisemitic attacks in and around the New York City area and some of the people who were paying attention to it saw that the individuals who are carrying out the attacks weren't neo Nazis. They weren't they weren't white supremacists. They weren't a radical Islamic extremists. And they they weren't Politically motivated it was a different dynamic than what you might have been talking about in June of two thousand nineteen You had some people who are talking about the the black Israel The Hebrew Israelite Movement But then others within that movement rejecting the acts carried out up in Munsey attacking the rabbi's home as well as attacking The the Jewish Kosher Supermarket in New Jersey. So in a way if you ask me how it evolved part of. It's been positive With all of the outreach in all of the new relationships and part of it has been an added challenge added friction as we witnessed what happened in the Hanukkah two thousand nineteen and struggling with figuring out how to as quickly as possible Deal with that next. We asked how the black community can support Jewish concerns and how the Jewish community can more forcefully advocate for African American issues. Here's what Linda Lawrence had to say. Yes the Jewish community has in the past as as you know during the civil rights movement Jewish communities one of our strongest legal and justice advocate on the judicial system but it is lifting the voice of Black America Black Lives Matter Institutional that is. Our biggest challenge institutional racism when it comes to the education when it comes to housing when it comes to the criminal justice lending voice to the black community and pointing out those things that are wrong and the black community. What we can do is make sure that we are calling out the stereotypes against the Jewish community. Then we heard from Debbie Wasserman Schultz. There is really some significant overlap that particularly with the violence and the Anti Semitism and bigotry. That is being hurled at our communities not just with these horrendous murders but with social media attacks and you know protest against our communities and discriminatory actions so we have a lot on our plate. Initially that I think are in my view important for our communities mutually and you know because the Caucasus really in its infancy as we mature and move down the road. Get to know one another issues that you know. We can be across the aisle and across our communities and the caucus focused on trying to prioritize the issues that the individual communities find important and lastly representative Lee Zeldin. Well we always spent a lot of times so far I talking about the way. The Jewish community has been targeted with not just Anti Semitic thoughts but antisemitic actions and violent and some cases of its cost people their lives. So you know the the ways for the the black community to identify what? The top issues are Right now for the Jewish community. We're seeing it. Play out really in the national news and the national debate for the Black Community The there still is racism in our country in many respects and I think that teaching tolerance and and understanding ensuring that policies aren't discriminatory that individuals have the ability to achieve the American dream and shouldn't be held back just because they might be someone of color or they might be practicing a different religion like Judaism. That discrimination racism still exists in our country. We saw it play out not too long ago on. Long Island where I'm from the first. Congressional district of New York is on the east end of Long Island There was a story that was in. Newsday was an investigative report of members of the real estate industry discriminating against people of color who were trying to find housing trying to Purchase a home to achieve the American dream. And unfortunately that's an exception and not the norm. It's rare But the response has been robust with investigations. That have been lost. launched as well as the real estate industry themselves Self policing Each Other To educate but educate each other and to push out of their industry people who are discriminating against Black individuals who are trying to own a home and then she the American dream so I would say as far as identifying some of the biggest needs right now of the black community. I would say that just like it was easy to identify anti-semitism as a top needed needs to get addressed for the Jewish community. I would say. Racism is something that's very prevalent and still needs to be addressed absolutely with regards to the black community next. We asked what issues of mutual concern? The caucus can address. Here's what Brenda Lawrence had to say. I think it's extremely important. That the black and Jewish community allow the history of oppression for either of our people to be forgotten. You know there's some people who like to say the Holocaust didn't happen. There are people who say You know black people so each other to slavery. So what's the big deal? We cannot allow the history that as horrific as it is to be forgotten. And that's something else that I think that we uniquely can do as citizens of this country and as survivor and Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Right now we have a really significant challenge around white supremacy and the rise of white supremacists in United States white supremacist increasingly targeted and killed large groups of people in recent years because of their race or religion in the United States in Twenty fifteen we had nine African Americans who were murdered murdered by a gunman whose name I won't mention at the Emmanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church Mother Emmanuel in Charleston South Carolina. Because and this is quoting the murderer. He knew that it would be a place to get a small amount of black people in one area. You had Robert Bowers. Last year yelled antisemitic. Slurs before he opened fire and killed eleven worshippers at the tree of life synagogue in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and that was the deadliest attack on the Jewish community. American history you've had attacks on mosques where insecurity has had to be increased after fifty one people were massacred to mosques in New Zealand. So we have a very current urgent challenge with bigotry. Anti-semitism white supremacists who are engaging in in deadly violence and so that's at the security and houses of fighting. Anti Semitism and bigotry is Is really the top of our current list of issue the very tragic areas of mutual concern for for both communities and and I would also add Particularly because most of these crimes perpetrated with guns the Jewish community in the African American community have have really come together around making sure that we can close all the loopholes that allow people who shouldn't have a gun under federal law here in the US be able to get them Now that issue is unfortunately not bipartisan. I was just getting ready to say. That's gotta be bipartisan. doesn't mean that That the hawks On Black Jewish relations can't take it on

"I'm Shane Morris sitting in for Johnston Street today as the nation marks. Dr Martin Luther King Day I want to share with you. Chuck Colson thoughts on one of Dr King's most powerful legacies days for the Colson Center. This is break point in their eloquent defensive life marriage and Religious Liberty Chuck Colson. The authors of the Manhattan Declaration made this bold statement treatment. There is no more eloquent defense of the rights and duties of religious conscience than the one offered by Martin Luther King Junior in his letter from Birmingham Jail Today Day on Martin Luther King Day we wanNA share with you. breakpoint commentary Chuck Colson aired back in the year. Two thousand about letter from Birmingham jail. Although recent revelations point linked to Dr King's moral failings the issues Dr King raised about the nature of law what constitutes an unjust law and how we should respond to unjust. Laws are as true true today as ever. So here's chuck. Colson from January of two thousand adjust law is a manmade code that squares with the moral law or the law of God an an unjust law is out of harmony with the moral law. Do you know who wrote those words. It was with these very words in his memorable letter from Birmingham jail. That Martin Luther King Junior threw down the gauntlet in his great civil rights. Crusade King refused to obey what he regarded as an immoral law that did not square with the law of God all across America. Millions of the people are celebrating the birthday of this courageous man and deservedly so he was a fearless battle for truth and all of us are in his debt because he remedied past wrongs and brought millions millions of Americans into the full riches of citizenship in schools and on courthouse steps. People will be quoting his. I have a dream speech. It's an elegant powerful classic sick. But I would suggest that Dr King's greatest accomplishments one which will be little mentioned today because it has suddenly become politically incorrect is his advocacy of the true true. moral foundations of law king defended the transcendent source of laws authority and in doing so. He took a conservative Christian view of law in fact he was the most eloquent advocate of this viewpoint in his time as interestingly enough Justice Clarence Thomas is today writing from a jail. King declared that the code of Justice is not man's law. It is God's law. Imagine a politician saying that today. We all remember the controversy that in just a few weeks ago when George W Bush even made reference to his Christian faith in a televised was national debate but king built his whole case on the argument that an unjust law is no law. At all exactly as argued by Saint Augustine and Thomas Aquinas us to be just king argued. Our laws must always reflect God's law and this is the greatest you today in the Public Square is the law rooted in truth is it transcended immutable and morally binding or is it as liberal. Interpreters suggest simply whatever the court says. It is ever since Dr King's Day the. US Supreme Court has been moving moving a step by step away from the positions. This great civil rights leader espoused to continue in this direction. As I've written can only lead to the loss of self-governing democracy so so I would challenge each of us today to use this occasion to reflect not just on his great crusade for civil rights but also on Martin Luther King's wisdom in bringing law back to its moral foundations nations. Many think of king some kind of liberal firebrand but when it comes to the law he was a great conservative who stood on the shoulders of Thomas Aquinas and Saint Augustine striving without apology to restore our heritage of justice. This is a story. I tell my new book. How now should we live a great moment history when a courageous man applied the law of God to to the unjust laws of our time and made a difference? And that's the lesson. We should be teaching our kids on this holiday. This isn't just another day off from school or a day to go to the mall. In fact I have a suggestion. Take this data. Sit Down with your kids and read them. King's letter from Birmingham jail. It may be the most important civics lesson they'll ever get for breakpoint. This is Chuck Colson in Washington..

"Of talk about of course we could talk about Dr Martin Luther king your thoughts on on him and boy I'd like to have a penny for his thoughts on some of the things that are going on today that I would I I mean I I'm dead serious because I was raised on him when I say raised on him and I'll never get he was in the sixth grade I had a teacher at PS two oh six in Brooklyn by the name of mis keys who for lack of a better term was a drunk old battleaxe no no I'm all right I'm dead serious it was known for that and she used to sleep basically through the morning and but what she did she well we all had to have the read the Herald Tribune at the time and it was a newspaper much like that I felt was like the times it it look like that and we had to take three articles we had to read it every morning take three articles every student in the class and we had to describe him you know put the articles in our own words and explain it so like to get to get up on the current events yeah yeah and that became my interest in current events but you have to remember well obviously you don't remember but at that time that was all about civil rights it was about doctor king was about the movie and it was about governor George Wallace and trying to keep Alabama university of Alabama segregated so it was about the dogs and the fire hoses so when you reading that every day a year eleven twelve year old kid it has a lasting impression on you sure it does it really really does and then obviously I've got a little older and I never get it at you know when he was assassinated in April nineteen sixty eight I believe it was April fourth nineteen sixty eight I'll never forget that day either because I was a student of Brooklyn tech and I'll never forget my black friends committed to school the next day and like the pain that was on their faces you know the anguish that was on their faces and it really hit home so any of your thoughts folks on doctor Martin Luther king feel free to give a call but like I say there is so much to talk about today this is the impeachment stuff going on there is the the bail reform what should I say the lack of bell look no the failing Belle river yeah let's call it that I'm not calling it the bail reform anymore I'm going to call it to fail reform because it is absolutely imbecility okay just absolutely moronic and of course we have these Major League Baseball scandal which that totally blows my mind for a lot of reasons listen cheating is cheating okay but some of the things that I'm hearing from from people with in baseball like laci sees a bath you god bless them I love CC but CC shot up with you know we feel cheated you feel cheated by the Astros and the red Sox well how do you think the teams that you will be eating and the games you were winning what you had did did the big juicer in your line of Alex Rodriguez and it will listen I love any pet it any better use and and and the other guys use one little Roger Clemens a lot of hypocrisy so what like let's not to be the pot calling the kettle black here okay and you know what really blows my mind meeting I'm here with comments like from fans from people like all of a sudden they're indignant when somebody else cheated but when their team was cheating well what we picking on a guy a good guy you know what that sounds like it sounds like the world of politics yeah and it's very very early similar and since it would talk about the about the world of politics well it sounds like the world of politics it sounds like tons of hypocrisy because there is plenty of hypocrisy going on yeah all and then of course we've got the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco forty Niners going to the Superbowl yeah and I I will tell you the chiefs game it was a good game the forty Niners game stock I mean I it unless you were a forty Niners fan it stunk I mean they absolutely I don't remember the Packers looking that bad yeah well for the casual football fans out there that first game was a very fun to watch and like you saying that the later game in the afternoon was they they were so it was twenty seven nothing at halftime or something like that you know it though it was I mean it was just it was over yeah so I mean you get a hit the snooze button on that it was over but the chiefs have been installed as your early one point favorites over the forty Niners and to get back to baseball for one second tomorrow is a big day for Yankee fans anyway because they listen there's no suspense Derek Jeter is going to get voted into the hall of fame only spent as you get unanimous that's exactly right you took the what age right out of my mouth big man does he follow in the footsteps of his beloved teammate Mariano you know that that is the only question does he get in unanimously what do you think Reggie think is gonna get in unanimously you know what I think is the one guy the whole point a to point to defect to say he couldn't play died as average defense of the the the point of that I agree with you I agree with the backlog is gone I mean that you don't have all these players stacked up as they were here where you got okay right I have fourteen names like only like ten so yeah let's listen to what I go back to the day when sandy Koufax didn't get in unanimously and I said to my I think at that time he had gotten the most votes but it was unanimous or made was is that maybe Siva following when that was their own until both got any names there will be three guys who say that the most votes ever right that that's really what you're looking at so Koufax's when he finished like ninety six low nineties mid nineties I think about on the vote yet even he was unanimous he won a yogi Berra who is on his second ballot the heating in the front yogi and Whitey Ford wait in together not why he wanted it seventy four mail is that right that's right you're right you're right you're right and why you to get on the first ballot okay yeah you're right about that but anyway listen we were talking about hypocrisy Meanie yes and speaking of a pocket see this one guy to me and I used to like him okay I know where you're going to now yeah but it's I used to like him because I used to like a lot of the Democrats and the person I'm talking about is one senator Chuck Schumer the president's afraid of the truth most Americans my guess is even Republicans know what the true face and no he's hiding it we Democrats aim to get the truth well let me tell you something folks if you haven't read it and you still have yesterday's New York Post I suggest you turn to page thirty four postscript palette ticks because the polls with the post did they read a statement for the record of senator Charles E. Schumer the trial of the president February eleventh nineteen ninety nine and what they did many they highlighted comments from Schumer that I'd be it's hysterical when you think that a let me just read something here it has shaken me that we stand at the brink of removing a president not because of a popular ground swell to remove him and not because of the magnitude of the wrongs he's committed but because conditions in in late twentieth century America has made it possible for a small group of people who hate Bill Clinton and his policies to very cleverly and very doggedly exploit the institutions of freedom that we hold dear and almost succeeded in on doing cats right now I'd be the hello thank god for the internet because if it did you know that if politicians would never be I mean they're not held to account anyways but they will at least we could go back in site some evidence where it's like hello you said these words about you know of a president was being impeached and now you're saying that it's just it's really it's nice to have that we could go back and see you know what they did say and call them out as much as we can for it because it is not let me let me read another one for you if you had asked me now remember folks this is Chuck Schumer February eleventh nineteen ninety nine we're talking about the impeachment of of Bill Clinton if you had asked me one year ago of people like this with such obvious political motives could you is our courts played the media and realize the legislative branch to achieve their ends of bringing down the president I would have said not a chance that doesn't happen in America and the call phone he's on this guy it's unbelievable saying the complete opposite today he's arguing you know just against that now he said nineteen ninety nine twenty years twenty one years later raising it is absolutely amazing but again folks that structure where we're talking a peach meant but talking MLK we'll talk this respect for our police which continues to gets can have it it's reprimand I'm just here to we have an example that will will will get until and we'll also talk about I I which really me tick me off and you've heard me hurt me last week sitting here with with Bernie talking about well who would I vote for this and that and and one of the guys that I really felt as an option the only option from the Democratic Party was Michael Bloomberg but then I heard Michael Bloomberg comments on the view screw that screw that and then at seven forty you go to one on one to listen we've got the Brooklyn borough president a friend here Eric Adams coming gone he's got a plan to try and solve or clean up the mess of anti semitism in particular coming from the the black community here in New York City so well let's talk about this morning again Eric Adams coming up the Brooklyn borough president at seven forty and of course we've got you the people the listeners the call is out there so give us a call at eight hundred eight four eight nine two two two that's eight hundred eight four eight W.

Here's what the teams who competed yesterday and Dr King have in common. They illustrate the cultural leverage of excellence. The chiefs are led by CEO. Clark Hunt I was privileged to be his pastor for many years in Dallas and Kinda tasked personally to his family's strong commitment to Jesus when his team won the AFC championship yesterday. Clark told the World World I want to thank the Lord for blessing us with this opportunity. The glory belongs to him and this trophy belongs to the best fans in the National Football League Tennessee. Hennessy quarterback Ryan Tannehill made clear his faith in Jesus over the years as well recently telling reporters I pray before every game. I spend time with God before I get to the stadium and then when I lace up my cleats I thank God for the opportunity to go out there and attempt to glorify him. By contrast packers quarterback. Aaron Rodgers has made news in recent years for the fact that he no longer identifies as Christian after meeting and being influenced by Rob Rob Bell Rogers told. ESPN I think. Organized religion can have a mind debilitating effect because there's an exclusivity that can shut you out from being open to the world to people and Energy and love and acceptance. Rogers is one of the most talented athletes of his generation like car. CONT and Ryan Tannehill. His commitment to professional excellence provides enormous leverage for cultural influence whether the person uses that influence. For Jesus Jesus or not it may surprise you to learn the Dr Martin Luther King Junior never completed high school. That's because he was such an advanced student that he skipped his first and last years of high school and went directly into college at the age of fifteen he entered seminary at the age of nineteen and graduated three years later as Valedictorian and student body. President he completed a PhD at Boston. University at the age of twenty twenty five. Dr King was brilliant in his diagnosis of the problem. Facing our nation he said injustice anywhere is a threat to justice is everywhere. We are caught an inescapable network of mutuality tied to a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly affects? It's all indirectly. He was brilliant and declaring the ultimate answer to our melody as well while accepting the Nobel Peace Prize in Nineteen Sixty four Dr King stated. I believe that unarmed truth. And unconditional love will have the final word in reality that is by right. Temporarily defeated needed is stronger than evil triumphant. He was brilliant and inspiring others. Dr King told a group of students in October nineteen sixty seven. Be Nia Bush if you can't be a tree if you can't be a highway just be a trail if you can't be a son be a star for it isn't by size. Is that you win or fail. Be The best of whatever you are today. We remember with gratitude not just his legacy but the commitment to excellence. What's that made it possible? Daniel achieved in exalted place in Babylon because an excellent spirit was in him in proverbs. Twenty two twenty nine Solomon noted. Do you see a man skillful in his work he will stand before kings. Paul was known for his is great. Learning the person who lived with excellence more than any other was of course the Lord Jesus. He's the only person in history who was tempted in every way just as we are yet he did not sin the crowds said of his ministry. He has done all things well. Now our Lord's Passion Passion for excellence must be hours. We are to seek excellence in our thoughts as Philippians. Four eight says if there is any excellence if there is anything worthy of praise think about these things and in our actions as well as Colossians. Three twenty three says whatever you do work work heartily as for the Lord and not for men we most express such excellence through service. I Peter for ten says as each has received a gift use it to serve one another and in mark nine thirty five. Jesus was adamant if anyone would be I. He must be last of all and servant of all exactly two months before he was assassinated. Dr King delivered a sermon German at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta titled The Drum Major Instinct. He described this instinct as a desire to be out front a a desire to lead the parade a desire to be I. By contrast he proclaimed Jesus define greatness as service Dr King noted by giving that definition of greatness. It means that everybody can be great because everybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You've you don't have to make your subject and verb agreed to serve. You don't have to know about Plato and heiress title to serve. You don't have to know Einstein's theory of relativity to serve. You don't have to know the second law of thermodynamics to serve.

an issue and they did stories about it we're trying to monitor what was going on in there is some historic value into say all I understand it was there since the late eighteen hundreds and it's referenced in pop culture and rap songs and all the branding along that street and Boulevard or whatever they have to say on everything like here in Saint Louis every company has the arch on it would be like telling people they could use the arch anymore that would be a big deal so the thing that surprised me the most on the article was Kansas city was the last major city without a doctor Martin Luther king name sake on a street that was kind of surprising but that's not what really happened it sounds like most people were just upset because they took something that the all know and love that per se Boulevard per se drive in what they decide to do is change name of people are upset about that not that not that they changed it to that specific name they just don't want to change it at all it is more so that than anything I mean nobody nobody things but we shouldn't honor doctor king in Kansas city for everything that he has done and there's such a concentration of African American population here as well just like in Saint Louis nobody thinks that there's no reason we should honor Dr Martin Luther king junior it was the process that that it went down that really make people mad and real quick but a year ago eight get someone to help you should rename a street after doctor king and at the time that they are slight James who has since left the mayor's office they form some sort of quick coalition and they said alright what are we going to do here it was either the airport is a new single terminal it was the potato or sixty third street and they don't even ask the people that lived along the coast there which is a major thoroughfare in here in the city there's a lot of houses a lot of businesses that are on sale in Kansas city so even without getting known will of the people that that that that the public vote they did a a survey which they call it I question some of the results of the survey and it turns out that you don't even go in the past they haven't really always done with you know what the city council has done and what not they just decided Hey we're gonna go with a sale and they just decided to March on with us and the city council voted eight to four disregarding any sort of legal precedent that's ever been set so people are actually more mad at the process Ryan than anything and that's what yesterday the folks look at sixty nine percent of the vote to overturn it turn it back into the potato that's what people are most bad about not pulling Dr king's game after mode mad about the fact that they were asked the people were asked and that the city council kind of screwed over Kansas city residents yeah and it be on the ballot you get nearly seventy percent that want to change back to says a lot that there wasn't a lot of support to begin with or at least a gain some support after the fact that they wanted to keep it the way it was historic as it may be you know when I look at national headlines and it's the worst place to get local news anytime you see and some outside source trying to talk about the community you live and they always get it wrong they always sensationalized and that's why you got to ignore these national news agencies when it comes to local matters I find and you really if you click on the New York times are like or The Washington Post worker the hill dot com or whatever national like you would know the backstory you would know that there were mistakes made the entire way as opposed to just hang out in the city had black people that's not that's not that's not what the whole point of this whole thing is I actually had can the city mayor quit Lucas on my show today I have to give the guy he's in at ninety seven day as mayor of Kansas city and it came out it was with us for half an hour and we grilled and we said we're was a mistake made it was a win win this a lot and he flat out said look we made mistakes latter fact he was at the very beginning her hair was part of the team that initially said let's vote and let's get this street named after doctor king E. as any of any of us do their mistake you can also make a mistake so I applaud American coming out and saying we made a mistake and we have to do our best to make sure that that doesn't happen again because like you like me like anybody let that we're all human and you know we want to see government make any kind of a state but their human as well and made a big mistake with this one can be Z. tacos Mike wicked joining us on overnight America in one thing I always find two is sometimes there's a disconnect between politics and politicians how in the world could they have not figured out per se was so beloved it's been there forever and people have it that they have rap songs from what I understand like you know taught rapping about people love this per se and it's kind of like part of the the identity of Kansas city like this is a not necessarily a landmark but it's something that everyone in the year you would know about how come the politicians going to figure out that there would be some problem trying to rename it there is something behind the scenes that none of us saw whether it was the SCLC religious leaders you know Baptist minister is trying to get inside people's pockets or they along those lines there's just something that smells so fishy about the previous administration the previous sitting members of the city council that you just have to wonder how much you have to know about that like you said you like of St Louis that are in here no more arch you know no matter what part you can't that anymore or somebody like in Colorado or won the Grand Canyon said not no more Grand Canyon we're not gonna do that we're gonna call it something else like you just it doesn't it's one of those things where you and I let's look at politicians and say where is the common sense would that make any sense to anybody who took two steps back and called a hundred people who live up and down the Paseo seventy five eighty percent of them are gonna are gonna say now it just it seems like the little bit out of touch yeah people would call the per se anyway for all the time what is the big sky scraper in Chicago Ryan it's Sears tower right it's a distinction Willis towers it might be the generation like my daughter who's night but told me call Willis tower what do you want me and everybody else on the planet it's the Sears tower yeah and always will be Mike we get from our sister station KNBC talk show host there thank you so much for coming on to overnight America anytime I get it yeah he joins us on the quiver river electric came elects gas line well how about that how about that nationally speaking they don't take the time to look into a story but man that had mine

She was the youngest of twenty children born to black sharecroppers in Mississippi and in late nineteen sixty four for president Lyndon B Johnson was absolutely terrified of her why she was about to make make an appeal before the credentials panel at the Democratic National Convention. The potential implications were profound. Hamer represented the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party a racially integrated coalition of delegates Hamer wanted to challenge the seats of the current aren't all white democratic delegation from their state saying that they were in violation of the party's rules because they had systematically excluded excluded black citizens according to Time magazine. Johnson was worried that Hamer speech could offend the Southern Democrats whose votes he needed for reelection he wanted her silenced but Hamer had a following that rivaled that of Dr Martin Luther Author King Junior and she would not go unheard. Hamer was born in one thousand nine hundred seventeen in the Mississippi Delta. The share cropping system kept her parents in debt and without enough food to feed their twenty children in the Winter Hebrew tied rags on her feet because she often didn't have shoes. She started picking cotton when she was six years old. Aw Hamer started her civil rights work in nineteen sixty one after she was sterilized without consent during what it should have been a minor surgery she tried to register to vote in one thousand nine hundred sixty two but was turned away after she failed illiteracy literacy tests which were used in the south to discourage black people from voting the clerk asked Hamer complicated questions like interpreting the state constitution after she failed the test. She told the clerk she'd be back when Hamer returned to the plantation in that day. She was fired from her job but she wasn't defeated. Hamer became a student nonviolent. Coordinating Committee a community organizer and helped found the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party in reaction to the lack of integration in the state's Democratic Party party as a candidate from the party. She ran for Congress in nineteen sixty four against democratic incumbent Jamie L whitten at that year's Democratic Democrat National Convention. Hey made her way to the stage through a crowd of men who refused to make space for her other members of the civil rights movement including Martin Luther King Junior spoke but all eyes were on her. She then talked for thirteen minutes Mr Chairman and to could dentures committee. My name is Mrs Fannie Lou Hamer. She called for mandatory delegation an integration and recounted her experience trying to register to vote. It was the thirty first of all the night being the eighteen of US travel.

She saw old Lloyd running toward her. Why does it ghost carrying still smoking rifle Betty is confused by what has happened until later when she learned about the killing and all of that she was convinced. Loyd had done it until she talks to pepper in nineteen Ninety-two Speights had told no one what she saw. She kept a secret she held an and it was partially out of fear Barsha of loyalty to to Lloyd. For twenty four years. John Lewis had maintained he had been in the restaurant when he heard the gunshot. In light of Speights revelations. He admits that was a lie. And in nineteen Ninety-three national television appearance tower, spins an elaborate tale that begins with frankly berto a businessman rumored to have mob ties. And I want to see if frankly Berta owned and ran a vegetable warehouse in Memphis, Tennessee, he was a member of the Marcello organization.

King began giving speeches linking the antiwar movement to the civil rights are is fighting war in Vietnam and back home to politics, the nation was turning against them in the nineteen sixties.

"He knew as aliases suddenly is able to develop untraceable new identities based on names of Canadian citizens Raiwind never come out with any logical story about how he got the aliases. What's more the men whose names he took match raise general physical description? The key to the alias is not that they looked so much like James already. You wouldn't mistake them. But if you have description for the suspect fleeing crime in Dhaka, king's assassination would have fit these aliases just fine. One Inglis in particular stands out. Eric S got a name Ray uses for nine months before the assassination to Milan, it is a tantalizing clue to a wider conspiracy Ray signed his name Herrick starve ogled, and that look very much like the real goal signature whose middle name was Saint Vincent. And he scrawled it as something that looked like starve. I discovered that Mr. gall was a security cleared employees working for the United States at the Union Carbide plant. I began to suspect that that was a file appropriated by somebody in US intelligence. According to millennium. Not only was raid. Not the lone shooter. He may not have been the shooter at all on the day of the assassination. Dr king's movements were not predictable. Ray did not know when Dr king was gonna emerge from that balcony. But government agents who tracked kings every move would have known. Well, don't I feel like a horse's patupit because that's very that's the very question. I ask. And now here this loon is asking the same thing. I guess we're both Kuku for cocoa puffs. But government agents who tracked kings every move would have known. The intelligence agencies in their surveillance would know precisely that around six o'clock, Dr king was gonna come out in that second floor balcony, and there would be a window of seconds in which a sniper or snipers could operate. Professor millennium believes another indication of official involvement in the murder is the movements of the Memphis police on April third and fourth. The previous time Martin Luther King was a Memphis riots had arrested. That time king. Challenged in the eyes of the nation that he could show the ability to lead, a peaceful March in Memphis and was determined to come back. I am convinced that we can have here and in Washington, a massive nonviolent campaign. That was Martin Luther King in late March of nineteen sixty eight days before he went back to Memphis to lead a March and days before he was murdered this time the police wanted to be ready. There were four tactical units. Composed of three police cruisers each with three officers in each cruiser. They were there to intimidate Dr king's party and to prevent what the Memphis police thought would be a riot emanating from rain motel things, and they were circling within a five block radius of the rain motel. On April fourth the day of the assassination. Memphis, police redeployed the patrol placing them almost half a mile away from the motel. The withdrawal of the tactical. Units is very important step in a successful conspiracy. Because nobody not James array, not the other shooters, not anybody could escape that neighborhood after a loud shot when you head twelve cruisers within a five block area. That's just not true. I'm sorry. But he's a how many twelve losers within a what area could escape that neighborhood. After a loud rifle shot when you head twelve cruisers within a five block area. Why would there have been twelve cruisers within a five block area? I mean, Dr Martin Luther King was a hero civil rights leader. But he wasn't a president. He didn't have secret service detail. But regardless twelve police officers within a five block area. Yeah. That's a lot. But. There are people living in this city. There are people living in these houses, these blocks. I mean to say that so someone couldn't possibly get away. That's just nonsense. Police would later say one of Dr king's associates called off the squad cars, but millennium could not corroborate this claim he insists the evidence indicates that the king assassination was a large coordinated effort by rogue agents within different branches of.

"R V A Monday afternoon, celebrating Dr Martin Luther King junior day. There's still low. Folks who question? Should we have the day off? Doc, one of Dr king's underlying messages and females. Consistently was that everybody that had the opportunity to get some sort of an education should get it. So I think there's there's very real question. Is it a day to take off from school? Yes. It's been decided we'd take off. Now. The question becomes what do you do all your off? And I do wonder what people do on this day, and there's some places that set up as a quote day of service. Okay. The little little part that I can play in all of this and half of the last couple of years. It's a share with you. This amazing speech. I have a dream. It is one that can resonate with anyone. And it's a speech, by the way that is utilized by political opportunists of all. Varieties on a regular basis because they pick and choose which part of the speech they'd like to address. So we've heard half of it now. I want to move on to clip number three. Realized that freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom. We cannot walk alone. As we walk. We must make the good. We shall always March ahead. We cannot turn back. Now. Those who asking the devotees of civil rights. When will you be satisfied? We can never be satisfied as long as the negro is the victim of the unspeakable Haro police brutality. We can never be satisfied. As long as I bought is heavy with the fatigue of travel cannot gain lodging in the motel. The highways and the hotels of the citizens. We cannot be satisfied as long as the negroes basic mobility is from a smaller ghetto. We can never be satisfied as long as children are stripped and robbed of that dignity by fine stating for whites on. We've been not be satisfied as long as a negro in. Memphis, sippy cannot both anonyna- grow in New York believes he has nothing which. We are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until Justice rolls down like waters and righteousness. Macro mighty screen. I am not unmindful. Some of you have come here. Out of grad trials and tribulations. Some of you have come fresh from our jails sale. Some of you have come from areas where your quest for freedom. It by the of persecution. Staggered by the winds of police brutality. You have been the veterans of creative suffering. Tenure work with the pain. Suffering is redemptive. Go back to Mississippi. Back to Alabama. Go back to South Carolina. Go back to Georgia. Go back to Louisiana slums and get told. Knowing that somehow this situation can and will be chain. Not while I in the valley of despair. I say to you. Today. My brand. So even though we face the difficulties. Up today and tomorrow. I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day. This nation will rise up live out the true meaning of its creed. We hold these choose to be self evident that all men are created. So we're getting now into that final portion of the speech. Right. Dr king has taken us on a journey. He really has. In. In the course of twelve minutes thereabouts. He's taken us on a journey. And he has spoken to different people in the United States of America. He is addressed certain groups within the United States of America. And throughout this. He acknowledges that people are different, but people have common interests that people have some of the same concerns. He's not discounted. Anyone? And in fact, just the opposite. He has said to some people who may very well have wanted to discount this group over here because they weren't like this group over there. Wait a minute. That's not what we're doing. Now in the final four minutes or so. I think Dr king provides a message which is at both. Is both inspirational and enlightening. And perhaps perhaps the most important meaningful part of the speech for most of us cut number four. I.
