Martin Luther King was an Afro-American reverend who fought for the equality of races and the rights of American Blacks . He pronounced in 1963a famous speech that stroke the mind of Americans : " I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they willnot be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character" . Today , has Martin Luther King's dream come true?
Inthe past , black people were considered as a lower race by white people . Segregation has been present for a long time , "separate but equal " wasthe philosophy of American citizens.
We can say that today , tolerance for the blacks in U.S.A have progressed . Indeed , Black americans areconsidered like normal citizens who have the right to vote . Moreover , the election of the president barack Obama in 2009
as first blackpresident of the history of the United States , makes
Martin Luther King’s dream real for the Black Americans .
However , the racialdiscrimination is still really present in the U.S.A . Indeed , black people have much difficulties to buy a house or apply for a job . Even though , the Afro-Americans are American citizens, they are still a low social class .
In conclusion , although the tolerance in U.S.A has progressed , racismand discrimination are always present in the United States .But with Barack Obama , we have the hope that Martin Luther King's dream become reality .
