I Too Have a Dream

imagesCARVDZ7T“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”  —Martin Luther King Jr

We must continue to have honest dialogue about race relations in this nation.  Things are not as they should be when it comes to race.  There continues to be a mass incarceration of black males.  Black children continue to be marginalized.  Just take a look at the school systems.  Unemployment remains high among black.  Blacks are more likely to be pulled over by police officers than anyone else.

I continue to pray for a better America, for racial healing in our land, because God knows that we’re not doing too well.

    A problem that I am not sure how to attack and it’s often overlooked I feel, the “family unit” has been obliterated.

    Good dream. I’d love to see our churches be the model of this dream. Ultimately, that’s where it really matters.
