Martin Luther King Jr. dreamed of a world with complete racial equality. John Lennon dreamed of world peace. Walter Fredrick Morrison dreamed a world where people would toss plastic discs to each other for entertainment. At least one of their dreams came true, amirite?

@Walter with the frisbee, Sadly.

OP said "at least one." Now, MLK Jr.'s dream is true in the US. There is racial equality. Our president is black, for goodness sakes! Honestly, if anyone is being slighted it's white Americans. But it doesn't matter, for under the law everyone is equal.

That being said, no gov't anywhere can ever make someone think every race is equal. There will ALWAYS be racists. Always. But that doesn't matter, for we have equality of oppurtunity.

@scrantoncity OP said "at least one." Now, MLK Jr.'s dream is true in the US. There is racial equality. Our president is black...

"At least one" doesn't mean 1+, it means one, but it's better than none. Like, "At least there's going to be food at all."

And yes, there is some racial equality, but not completely. People still act differently towards different races. People are still racist.

@EstoniaObsessed "At least one" doesn't mean 1+, it means one, but it's better than none. Like, "At least there's going to be food...

Ah I see what OP meant.

And, like i said, there is complete racial equality under the law, which is the best any benevolent gov't anywhere can do. No one can force someone to change his mind.

@scrantoncity OP said "at least one." Now, MLK Jr.'s dream is true in the US. There is racial equality. Our president is black...

MLK's dream is nowhere near being complete. Sure, almost all of us are equal "under the law," but if you've ever even listened to a single line out of any of MLK's speeches, you would know that legal equality is only half the battle.

Which, as I've said twice, is the best any benevolent government can do. No gov't can change someone's opinions. If they don't want to believe everyone is equal, they flat out won't. The only thing that could change that would be A: either kill or export from the country all racists, or B: either kill or export from the country all black people. Those are literally the only two options. Our country is too good to do either of those, so we have nowhere to go from here. Over time, maybe people will learn to accept all races. Right now there's nothing to be done.

@SalientK So then you agree that MLK's dream has not been fully realized.

I suppose, yes. However, he was an idiot if he thought that sometime in the near future all the bigots and racists would magically accept other races. He knew that it was nigh impossible. At least we have equality of opportunity.
