Do dreams come true ? Do people actually believe in dreams ? I have dreams, you have dreams, we all have dreams and we might believe everything is possible. Martin Luther King, Jr's. Dream has not fully come true. Its still finding its way even though we have come a long way but we can do way better than what we are doing now. Martin Luther King, Jrs wanted everyone to be treated equally no matter what. He didn't think it was fair for people to be treated any less than how we were supposed to be treated. Race and Sexuality is still a problem here around the world. People are still making racist comments and discriminating against gays and other races. Things might have shapen up because now gay marriage is legal in a few states. Things might look "okay" politically but its about changing the way society thinks of these individuals. MLK Jr's dream is not being fulfilled to it's full potential because of the controversy in the world. Martin Luther King, Jr. had a dream. His dream was for everyone to be treated equally no matter what the circumstance was. Martin Luther King ,Jr . sees us as a team. King, Jr. once said "we are saying that we are determined to be men. We are determined to be people. We are saying, we are saying that we are God's children. And if we are God's children, we don't have to live like we are forced to live... it means we've got to stay together. We've got to stay together and maintain unity." (A Call to Conscience). Things have changed overtime cause of Martin Luther King ,Jr. but we have not come a long way. There is still inequality going on. Theres a lot of racist comments made, hate crimes still happen because of who you are as a individual, plus you may be treated differently because of it and there... ... middle of paper ... ...s action simply because theres no sympathy for behavior like that especially in a league where 80% of the players are African-American. People like this are really unacceptable. Racism has not fully come to an end. I honestly don't think it ever will. If people keep doing and thinking the way Donald Sterling and George Zimmerman do then we are just digging ourselves into a deeper hole. Its basically the same mindset in the Emmett Till situation, where there is hatred just cause of their race and color. It's very unfair to them. MLK did all he could to change that and he did make big changes but this issue is still dragging on and its the constant pulling of change and no change. If society keeps working together then MLKs dream will fully come true. Matthew Shepard died on October 12, 1998. Matthew Shepard was gay, thats what caused this unfortunate death.
