              In Martin Luther's, I Have a Dream, speech, he states, "We all have come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of now. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice." 5 scores before his speech, the emancipation proclamation was signed, meaning that blacks were free from slavery, but not social separation. Freedom is given but justice must be demanded. It is agreeable that freedom is not fought for, but cruelty towards blacks, must be challenged. People of any color should be treated fairly and should not have to fight for equal citizenship rights.


                Initially, Blacks do not have to fight for freedom. However, they are not given the same equal citizenship rights as white people. For example, "I have a dream that 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," says Martin Luther.  All people should be judged by their character, because all people were given the exact same rights as everyone else. All people are born into the same justice as their neighbor.




Secondly, cruelty towards blacks should be challenged. Each day, children are going into schools, constantly being judged by their classmates. We, as the people, of the United States, can change, the way we treat others. In the Inaugural Speech, the President states, "We know it well that none of us acting alone can achieve success. ," together there will be unity created and love for all people. It will not be simple, but possible to achieve a peaceful future.


Also, no person should have to fight for equal rights. The second one is born into America will receive the same right as the person next to you. That means, each person has the same opportunity for success and the inalienable ability to be treated fairly. In the Inaugural speech, the president states," Let there be work, bread, water and salt for all." We can realize that each one of our lives are important, and that we help our brother in need, regardless of skin color. Also, Blacks will be entitled to the same schools, jobs, churches, and stores as Whites. However, Blacks can demand their rights and freedoms, as a people.
