We've come a long way on race, though racism is still alive and well in the U.S., but the central vision of social justice and economic equality, Dr. Martin Luther King's dream is a long way off even today. While he is honored by most political leaders today, he was demonized as an "anti-American," and a "communist" during his struggle against racism, economic inequality and militarism. Today we have nearly 20% REAL unemployment, and the military machine rolls on, killing every chance of economic justice at home.
