RECLAIMING DR.MARTIN LUTHER KING’S DREAM (My false 2010 Prediction of Record Minority Voters)

Glenn Beck has scheduled a rally at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC for August 28, 2010. A counter rally and march titled "Reclaiming the Dream" will be held by Al Sharpton and other Civil Rights Leaders on the same day at a high school in Washington DC.

I believe that  it is not necessary to have a Reclaiming the Dream rally this year. My belief is based on the fact that some people including Glenn Beck are dangerously flirting with “taking our country back” to an era of pain, violence, hatred, and death for political gain. I am afraid that having these two totally political and racially different groups in the same place is a disaster waiting to happen.

A large part of Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream was realized when the voters in 2008 elected Barack Obama who was the most qualified candidate as its president in 2008. The urgency is now we can’t afford to give racist Americans, the Republican Party, and/or the Glenn Becks in this country the opportunity to start or incite a riot, racial confrontation, and/or race war in America.

We can continue to reclaim Dr. King’s dream by striving to become a more perfect nation that respect the rights and aspirations of all of it citizens. We will show our power at the ballot box on November 2, 2010, as we go out in record numbers for the midterm elections.
