I think the most important part that he said was that he wanted people to judge his kids by the content of their character and not their skin. I think that, that was important because you can't tell what a person is like because of their skin color, you have to now the person and judge them for their actions or what they say.

The most important topic he mentioned was the equality of any race. I believe that is important because equality should be given to everyone, because we are all humans. Although we all have different color of skin, just because a person is darker than another person, it don't mean that he or she is powerful or have a higher position than the one who is darker than that person. Equality is something that should be given to everyone.

To me, the most important part of his speech is when he says, "Continue to work with the faith that unearned suffering is redemptive." He's basically saying that even though they're being treated wrong for no reason it's only going to make them stronger at the end of the day. African Americans have been treated unfairly for a long amount of time because of the color of their skin. After being mistreated for such a long time and never knowing exactly why, it makes their character a lot stronger because they're able to deal with hate and discrimanation even when it isn't necessary.

The most influential words that Dr. King spoke were on the reasons to judge a person due to the content of their character and not the color of their skin. The most qualities of a person are what make the world a better place and what allow people to interact, not the color of their skin. The world changed due to the fact that people no longer viewed color as an issue. What is on the inside is most important and when Dr. King recited that in his speech, the nation was given a different approach on how to start incorporating freedom to everyone.

The most important part of this speech is when Dr. Kings tells us how he wants the future to be. He tells how how human beings should not be judge or criticized by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. A person should be judged by who they are and what they do, not because of how they look. I agree with this idea of his. A person can be who ever they want to be in life no matter the color of their skin or how they look. That was his dream and that is the most important thing that he speaks about.

I believe that Dr. King's "I Have a Dream Speech" is important to the country as is gave the people hope that the world can change. That people's view on colored will cahnge, making the world a better place. It made people realize that they need to stop discriminating agaisnt one another based on color and rather instead on who they are individually, and what they have to bring and say. Color shouldn't be how you are judged because what you look like doesn't necessarily define you. Everyone may look the same, shown in different colors, sizes, etc.

I beleive the most important part of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s speech was his wanting of society to live free of segregation and persecution. For Dr. King it didn't matter what race or religion a person was, as long as they all had the same freedoms provided under the Declaration of Independence. He wanted all individuals to help achive this goal not through violence but spirituality and word of none other than god.

This speech is very moving and i am a big supporter of Martin Luther King Jr because if it weren't for him my father would not be my father because he is African American. i thought it was very important when Martin Luther King said "I have a dream that one day my four children will not be judged by the color of their skin but of the content of their character because this is a what should be valued now for every one to be equal.

I think the most important thing Dr. King said was that,"little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers".

Dr. King explained how important it is for everyone to become equal and to not be judged by the color of their skin but by their character. I believe the most important thing Dr. king said in his speech was that we should all be equal and not hate the white but to be opposite of what they were. Also, when he talked about the freedom everyone should have to vote, etc. and be free and equal at last with one another.

Throughout the speech many great and important topics were discussed, but one of the things that really struck me was King's implication that the Negros were fighting for a freedom long overdue. They deserved what the Emancipation Proclamation stated, and what Lincoln established a hundred years earlier. this is important because it helps the Negros achieve their goal.

Reflection

The most important point that Dr. King brings up is the one about the urgency of now. This is the most important point because without it, who knows how long it would've been before the blacks were truly free. This is important because people kept saying that he couldn't rush the movement and he had to be patient but he wouldn't stand for it because he knew the importance of getting it done.


Name: Natalia Rosales
Teacher: Schneemann
Period: 3

Reflection

I believe the most important part of King's speech to be when he states that the time is now. Up until he came along, few people actually accomplished action towards the desegregation of African Americans in America. King points out how much time has passed and that this is no longers something to lag on, but rather something that needs to be done now. King therefore is able to gather even more support for something that people have been waiting years for and something that has been repeatedly pushed aside by the public. I believe this part was crucial to his speech to indicate that they are no longer willing to wait to those who believed they needed to be "patient," waiting for something that may never even have come.

The "I Have a Dream Speech" by Martin Luther King Jr. is imporant because it advocated non violence for equality for not only African Americans but also for all races. This to me is important to me because without equality in America I wouldn't have the oppurtunities I have to this day, it is important to this country because it allows all races to live in harmony without bitterness and unfair rights to one surperior race.

what was mportant of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's speech was that all man and women are created equal because are everybody are people and thats how God created us and that the people should judge only their character not the color of their skin because if you get angry you should get angry of their wrong doings and not their skin color. Also the african american people should give freedom to them because they were misjudged for a long time and should get freedom and get treated eqaul. also what he said for his children to grow in a world that there will not be any more judgement of their skin, he also meant to the kids of the future so they wont get misjudged by the color of their skin.

Period: 3

Reflection

I believe that the most important thing Martin Luther King Jr. said was that he hopes one day his children would be judged not by the color of their skin, but rather by the contents of their character. I believe this is the most important thing he said because it applies to the whole idea that it doesn't matter what color skin you are, but who you are as a person. The color of your skin should not depict the type of person you are and should not be the only factor that is judged. This is a very strong part of the speech because it opens up the big idea of racism and segregation. He creates the question of " Why should does color make a difference? ". This would create equality among everyone and anyone.

After watching his speech, Dr. king's allusions to Stone Mountain of Georgia and Lookout Mountain of Tennessee, two places that were the meeting places of the Ku Klux Klan would be turned into peaceful and "free" places. Dr. King is trying to convey that Freedom needs to be placed in every corner and crack of the world. If Freedom can be found there, it can be found everywhere

Reflection

I believe the most important and striking part of MLK's I have a dream speech is his repitition of "Let freedom ring". This repitition forced the American public to choose between their racist and ignorant beliefs, or the American ideology and way of life. King forced America to acknowledge that, though they preach freedom, they give oppression and hate. I believe this part of the speech made many people realize how hypocritical it was to call themselves American and pretend to be patriotic while they went against American ideals of integration, freedom, and tolerance. Freedom and liberty are two of the most important parts to the American way of life, restricting blacks, demeaning minorities, and preaching hate and intolerance was a direct violation of the American Dream, and I believe this part of the speech opened the eyes of America. Let freedom ring.

Reflection

Upon reflection, I strongly believe Dr. King's multiple references to the Constitution were the most important parts of his speech. I believe that the inclusion of such principle evidence largely impacted his fight for equal rights for all of the negro community. Continuously mentioning ways in which the government is forced by law to grant these rights demonstrates to the population that the idea of segregation is immoral. This is important not only to our country but to myself, as an American citizen,due to the fact that if the government can stripe many people's rights and be overlooked what stops them from taking my own. Dr. King's call out of the flaws in the government system helped many American citizens in addition to himself and the negro community.

I think the most important thing the Dr. King said was "But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia!" because it really set the forgiving tone of the the speech. Its a really big thing to forgive people who lived their entire lives hating him and his culture. He forgave people who dedicated their lives to discriminate and even kill people of his nationality. But King forgave tham and that showed a lot of his character.

One part I thought that was most important was when Dr. King said that only way to judge a person is due to the content of their character and not the color of their skin,that was most influential words he spoke in his speech in my opinion. It was most important part of the speech because a character of a person really reflects how the world is rather than a person skin color.

Martin Luther King Jr.'s speech was very influential. Many Americans were convinced or made their value of equal freedom for everyone stronger. Of course for some it may have been a joke. For example when he brings up Stone mountain and Lookout mountain.These are both very symbols of segregation. The KKK controlled these locations. He needed to say this to make his speech much more intense. All in all MLK gave an amazing speech for all Americans to enjoy together.

Throughout the speech, Martin Luther King repeated "I have a dream" which gives an illusion to what changes he wants to make in the nation. He states that he believes that everyone can have an impact if they really set their mind to it. He want to give the illusion that it is possible to overcome all circumstances of hate and discriminationif we all beleive.

A cricual part of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's speech what what he had mentioned about the importance about remaining non-violent. When a peoson resolves a conflict by remaining peaceful it demonstrates strength in the aspect of remaining united for a positive cause. Remaining peaceful also makes that individual more mature and willing to sacrifice his or her health for the sake of peace. Martin Luther King Jr. let us know this when he mentions that remaining non-violent will bring victory to the cause.

What I believed to be most important in Dr. King's speech was his emphasis on using non- violence to bring about change.While urging people to bring about change quickly, he wanted people to protest with dignity and discipline.It was very important that he urged people to protest peacefully because if they would have protested violently, things would have only gotten worse. In the end, his non- violent tactic worked and the Civil Rights Act was passed.

Reflection

Many sections of Martin Luther King's speech were significant, but one stood out to me. He states that this nation shall judge a person "not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." These words are significant because not only do they put down the idea of discrimination, but they emphasize the fact that a person's character and attitude are the most essential elements that make up a person. They shed light on the fact that it is not wrong to judge a human being, just as long as the proper thing about them is being judged. Lastly, these words are campaigning for the unity of blacks and whites.

The most important part of the speech was when he explained the all negros should have the same justice and freedom as white men.This is the most important because the framers of our constitution wrote it based on freedom for all.Others should feel this is important because it deals with ones freedom and that is important to all of us. This affects all of us because we all deserve freedom its written in the constitution.Dr. King also states all negros have the right to " the pursuit of happiness" meaning no one should violate that and he is fighting against it.

I think the most important part of his speach that I thought was eye opening, was when he talked about how he wants his children to be judged on their characteristic's than by the color of their skin.

In Dr.Kings speech "I Have a Dream" he touched several important points. The speech had a huge impact on society and to our country because for what Dr.King faught so much, today it is not really an issue. He fought against racism and encouraged everyone to join him. He constantly goes back to history to support his argument and how after 100 years negroes were still exiled from their own country. Later on, after marches and protests the 1964 Civil Right Act was out which made huge changes for negroes.

In listeing to this speech, the quote "a right thing done for the wrong reason and a wrong thing done for the right reason is equally wrong" came to mind. With personal experience with reverse descrimination and religious persecution, I watched this speech and realized something I'd never before. It is not about how much change you make in society, but its how one does it - That somehting done the right way for the right reason must prevail.

What I found most significant about Marting Luther King Jr.'s speech was that he mentioned how he wanted his kids to be "judged by their character rather than by race". I feel as if everyone can relate to this in the way that many do not like to be secluded from groups just because of their skin color. It should not matter the color of one's skin because that African American boy you are not talking to die to his color could have similar interests as you and you can only find out if you talk to him and not seclude anyone by color.

Reflection

The most imortant part of his speech is when Dr. King states that his dream is to have his four children suffer because of the descrimination. Its important because he uses his children as individuals who have to suffer through the judgement so the audience would feel sympathy. Most people have or want to have children, so King uses them to make his speech more powerful and influential.

I think the most important part of Dr.Kings speech is the natural rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The reasons why i believe this is important because of people to do anything that pleases them. This natural rights are not just for me but for everyone who lives in the US. People can live they way they want, people have fairness and choose any from of happiness they like.

I believe that one of the most important things Dr.King said in his speech, was when he stated "I have a dream, that one day, my four children, will be judged not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." This statement makes a huge impression on his speech and others who have heard it. I believe this is important because it shows exactly why blacks should have equal rights, its saying that skin color has nothing to do with character of a person and shouldn't be a factor in how people are treated. I believe this statement changed peoples opinions on the civil rights movement.

In Dr.King's "I Have a Dream Speech", the most important thing discussed was his urgency for his dream to become a movement and for it to also happen as soon as possible. He also emphasized that the negros and whites will not stop pushing until freedom is reachable by everyone no matter how many racial wrong doings they have committed.He even welcomes people from areas where the KKK hold meeting.He wants everyone to come together from all around the world and live together free at last.

Reflection

The “I have a dream” speech by Martin Luther King is recognised as one of the best speeches ever given. His soaring rhetoric demanding racial justice and an integrated society became a mantra for the black community and is as familiar to subsequent generations of Americans as the US Declaration of Independence. His words proved to be a touchstone for understanding the social and political upheaval of the time and gave the nation a vocabulary to express what was happening.  "Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred." Was the most important passage in the speech. The key message in the speech is that all people are created equal and, although not the case in America at the time, King felt it must be the case for the future. To achieve this equality, King argues that it is not wise nor necessary to fight violence with violence for it will not give them the proper closure.

Reflection

Dr. King talks about how it's important for the black community to not hate the white community but to invite them to their cause and understand that people should not be judged by the color of their skin. King knows that not all whites are discriminates and that the bond between people goes beyond physical appearances. His message about the community not walking alone holds great importance by how people should cooperate for a cause that benefits society. Belief and determination is what drove Dr. King and he said that their movement to stop white supremacist oppression will continue. That motivation and hope is what helped the black community get their rights and benefit the future for the next generation.

Dr. Martin Luther King's landmark speech serves as a reminder of the "bad check" of slavery, Jim Crow and the alternating cycles of violence and neglect directed towards African Americans. Dr. King clearly intended his words to inspire and uplift all Americans, but we must remember that the inspiration came after a realistic pursual of the "American Dream" through the mirror of history. I hope we, as a nation, one day we will have the courage to look back unafraid at our past and look at our present to fix our inequities so that we can accomplish his vision of justice and righteousness for all of the members of our nation in the near future.

In my opinion, the most important line said by Dr. King was "I have a dream that one day 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." This quote symbolizes a vision that segregation will end and everyone will be treated equally. Moreover, people will no longer be judged by their race, but by the personality they possess. Lastly, this line represents a modern day reality for racial equality. This line is important to me due to the fact that this dream he had would become a reality in the future time.

"One day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal". That part of the speech stood out to me the most because Dr. King is reciting the Declaration of Independence, our nations foundation as an independent country. Dr. King believes it's possible for us to change and be the country that our founding fathers had in mind when they created the document. The nation where prejudice is put aside, and is everyone is treated as equals.

During Doctor Martin Luther King's historic "I Have a Dream" speech, Dr. King says, "Some of you have come from areas where your quest for freedom left you battered by the storms of persecution and staggered by the winds of police brutality. You have been the veterans of creative suffering. Continue to work with the faith that unearned suffering is redemptive." I found this quote very meaningful to the speech, showing those suffering during these times that there are positives to come. He wants to encourage the millions that believe there will never be change in our society. Everything they've done in protest has helped push the change for racial equality.

The most important part of Dr.Kings speech is when he says,"we would be able to speed up that day when all god's children,black men and white men, Jews and gentiles,protestants and Catholics,we be able to join hands and sing the words of the old negro spiritual:free at last free at last." I believe this is important because the united states have given people more freedom.The people who live united states are starting to careless about the race and religion that you are.

The part of the speech in which I believe is most important is when he states that a person should "not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character" because it expresses the value of equality. It symbolizes that equality should not be based on the color of a person's skin. A person's character can reflect on how the world is, not their skin color. This is important to our country because it was a start to nonviolent social change to fight poverty, racism, and war.

One part that stands out to me is when Dr. King states, "I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed:"We hold these truths to be self-evident:that all men are created equal."" To me this is important because when he gave the speech not everyone was treated equally. Dr. Kings speech encouraged people to treat others equally and without his speech it may have taken longer for the equality of all the different races.

Reflection

The part that I found to be most important in the speech was when Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. mention his children's future in this country. "I have a dream... not be judged by the color of their skin but the content of their character.". That has an impact on me because at this time his young children are growing up in a very segregated community and he wants them to experience a world where people can get along based on the color of their skin. As he finished reading this statement the crowd cheered, not only is this just used for what he hopes for, but he also speaks for the crowd because he knows that they crave that for their children as well. If I were to be a parent at this time I know that I would not want my child to be judged based off of whether they are black or white. Not only did King appeal to adults but also to children. To our country this part of the speech is important because the children are the nation's future, sure there will not be whites who want to associate with blacks, but as long as majority can get along it can only improve this nation and it did. Whoever was at the Lincoln Memorial, watched it on television or listened to it on the radio, all understood the importance of equal rights, not only for themselves but for their children as well.

Reflection

I think that the most important point that Dr.King made was that it was essential for black people to "work with the faith that unearned suffering is redemptive". This means that the people who are being brutally and horrifically treated should continue to have faith, even through the hardships they are forced to endure. And as a result of this, they would be redeemed, and grow stronger as a population and society. I thought that this was the most important idea in the speech because it was meant to bring people together and help them see that though it would be tough, they could survive and come out stronger. I also think that this specific message reflects the spirit of the speech, and reveals the emotional impact that Dr King intended for his audience to feel. The message of strength and faith through tribulations is a message that many can relate to and one that can be used to empower a society. Dr King knew the power of his words, and used them to ignite a spirit of hope within the audience at that time, and those words empower anyone that hears or sees the speech today.

In Dr. King's "I Have a Dream Speech", I believe that the most important part of his speech was when he said "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." I believe this was important because before, black people were judged by their skin and only their skin because that was how society was back in the day. People didn't care if they were well educated or not, the only thing that people saw was their skin color. Since then, Dr. King's speech has made a big impact and now society judges people by their character. Another reason why this is important is because in our country, black people are now judged by their character and not by their skin color. So this means that everyone is now treated equally and there is less discrimination.

The most important part of Dr. King's speech was when he talked about how all men are created equal. The reason I believe this is important is because no person should be treated differently based on their appearance or skin color. Its not fair nor just to treat a person of less value because they look different from you. Every person should be given the same opportunities so that everyone has the chance to live the American dream. If everyone believes in the idea that all men are created equal then there wont be any issues between people about being judged or not being given the same rights to certain opportunities.

The quote that had stuck out to me the most was,"I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood." Due to the red hills of Georgia being a major Ku Klux Klan territory. So over all Dr.King states that he wants this issue to over power the KKK. Resulting in having a single brother hood no matter the pigment of your skin.

The excerpt of the speech which I believe is imperative is when King states that an individual should "not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character" because it defines equality. This quote explains that equality shouldn't be based on the color of skin but rather on their character. A person's character can be judged good or bad, not their skin color. This is significant because it was the seed to nonviolent social change to a different level. This changed the way demonstrations were acted from violence to a more peaceful oriented way.

I believe that Dr. King's most critical line that he included in his speech is "Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred". This metaphor is to remind the people that even though they aren't granted freedom right away, instead of rioting and creating violence, they need to stay strong and stay persistent while maintaining the peace. He reminds them that the goal is to create equality.

I think the most important part of Dr.King's speech was when he expressed his concern over the urgency of the matter. He pressed on, using his rhetoric to push the matter at hand to the point where people would not just go home and forget about it. When he states "Those who hope that the Negro needed to blow off steam and will now be content will have a rude awakening if the nation returns to business as usual," he wants the people to know that the time for action is now, as many tragedies had to occur to reach the climax of the situation. This also goes along with his method of non violent demonstration, as the whole time Dr. King and his campaign have never encouraged violence. Also, how the force of spirit will overcome physical was impactful, as it was a religious approach to the situation during a time of great religious revival.

I think that Martin Luther King Jr saying, "I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream" is the most powerful part of his speech. I support my opinion because it shows that Mr. King recognizes that not everything is perfect. Mr. King still thinks that a happy ending is worth fighting for. King says "of the moment" which gives the impression that the struggle is temporary and a better future is in store.

I believe the most important thing that was stated in Dr. Kings “I have a dream” speech was when he said, “unearned suffering is redemption.” The significance behind the quote ties to keeping selfless and loving characteristics through times of struggle and when treated unjustly for no reason.

Martin Luther King's speech "I Have a Dream" is one of the most memorable speeches to ever be heard. One of the most important issues that Dr.King presented in his speech was the demand of President Kennedy at the time and congress to pass a national civil rights bill. The march created an emotional plea to expose the American public to the racial inequality. By passing the national civil rights bill this would allow all African Americans to racial equality and freedom.

I believe that the most important part of Dr. Martin Luther King’s speech “I have a dream” was that equality should not only be for African Americans but for all the other races. He explains how people should not be judged by their color or race but by their personality. He goes on by explaining how color does not define a person; he encourages us to get to know the person for who they really are. Dr. King also persuades us to start a change now rather than later.

The most important part of the speech is when MLK said "This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and a pursuit of happiness." This sentence is the most important part of the speech, because it reminds us what was promised all those years ago, it shames us (as a country) for not honoring our words, and uses the constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, as evidence for his argument.

I believe that the most important part of the speech was when Dr.King said, "...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." I think that this is important because he is giving the people hope that one day everyone will be treated equally. This made people believe that we could end segregation. Another part of this speech that I though was important was Dr. King said, "But one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free." This quote tells the audience that African Americans have been treated wrong for way to long and it is time for change.

I feel as though MLK's "I Have A Dream" speech will go down as one of the most influential and significant speeches in American history. In his speech, MLK was able to rally both whites and blacks and unite them under a common idea, that up until then had been widely rejected by many white americans. In my opinion , one of the most significant parts of his speech was when he referenced the idea that " we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation." This is significant because even with half of the country against his beliefs and in the face of overwhelming odds, MLK and his followers were able to change the course of history and fight for the equality they deserved. This quote stands out the most in my opinion because of how elegant and meaningful each word is; essentially, MLK was saying that even though it seems to most that all hope for equality is lost, that they wont give up until they are given their equal rights as citizens of the United States of America.

The I have a dream speech was a very important to the civil rights movement. It explained how all races should be equal because that is what the constitution says. My great grand father would not have been able to my marry my great grand mother if because he was African American and she was white. If Dr. King did not fight for equality I would most likely not be able to enjoy all the United States has to offer. There would be no job equality or equal pay.

Being an advocate for civil equality I think one of the more important things he said was "let freedom ring on stone mountain"which was a kkk "stronghold" and unlike other civil rights activist such as Malcolm X who was also a civil rights activist but he believed in violence as a way to combat their civil injustice. The nobility that is shown through believing in peaceful protestation is what made martin Luther the man we celebrate today

"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" This, to me, and probably to many others, is the most meaningful line in his whole speech. To me it is very meaningful because Dr. King says that he has a dream of a certain way that he wants society to function, but what his vision is is something that is such common sense. It should be so reasonable and logical that people should be judged by the content of their character as opposed to the color of their skin. The color of somebodies skin is such a weak foundation to build a judgment on. It's like judging how good of quality a car is based off of its color. It is sad that something so clear logic must be an idea that one could only, just as Dr. King did, dream of.

I think that's important because it can be applied to anyone especially here in the United States because we have so many different people living here and even though we've gotten better since then, there are still some people that don't agree with Dr. King. But that part of the speech still lives on and inspires people to be fair to one another.

A lot of the points Dr. King brought up in his speech were powerful and efficiently described the social reform he persistently sought after. I thought that his references to faith were among the most important, specifically the phrase that emphasized, "With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day." The repeated emphasis that is placed on the word "together" really captures Dr. King's intentions- that his idea to change the norms of society were not only directed to African Americans, but to society as a whole: that every individual of every race, whether it be blacks or whites, can participate in life without having to think twice about each others' outward differences. It is phrases like these- ones that sustain the concept of unity- that keep me hopeful for society. As we look back to a time where segregation was the social norm, Dr. King's speech reminds all of us of the trials our past generations have had to undergo in order to get us where we are now- a society that is far more accepting about the integration of all people, despite our unique differences, into a life that lets us marry, produce children, and pursue our most cherished desires. And that faith that Dr. King passionately described has traveled far, it has given us these beautiful freedoms. And that victory is what I would truly call, the American Dream.

In Martin Luther King JR.'s Speech "I Have a Dream Speech", this speech is known nation wide for the life changing outcomes that resulted from it. One of the most important points that MLK discussed in the speech is the idea that people should not be judged by their skin tone but rather their "content of their character". This to me is very important because this gave people, a sense of consciousness that the way they were being unjust with African Americans was very wrong morally. This line from MLK's speech is something that to me stood out to be the most important part of his speech. No matter what race one is that has nothing to do with their character as a person. Why should someone be punished for something they had no choice to choose. It makes me very proud that my country overcame racial segregation because it is unjust.

Dr. King in his I Have a Dream conveys how people of all colors should come together without segregation. But most importantly he has historical anecdotes to exemplify his point. When King directly quotes the U.S. constitution, saying "... that all men are created equal," it is the most important part of his speech. He's showing that our founding fathers' ideals as well as the core value of America, is that there should be equality for all. At this time in America nationalism and pride of the country is very big, by saying this he's letting people know if we are truly Americans, we'll follow the ideals which this great country was found upon, and end segregation and discrimination, not just black people but of all races, because as long as we're all Americans, we all have to work together.

On August 28, 1963 at the Lincoln Memorial, Martin Luther King Jr. gives a speech upon over 250,000 civil rights supporters during the March on Washington. This speech, “I Have a Dream,” was delivered by Mr. King as a way to help end segregation. One of the quotes in his speech that stood out to me was when he said, “We must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force.” This quote stood out to me for two reasons. The first reason why this quote stood out to me was because having mental strength is stronger than having physical strength. It is like in sports when it comes to “mind over matter.” Even if your team is tired and hurting, the only way you will succeed is by not caring about the pain you are feeling and keep pushing until the game ends. By Mr. King’s followers doing that and not retaliating, it shows the whites as the weaker ones since they are beating up people who aren’t fighting back and it also makes them look bad. The other reason why this quote stood out to me was because doing exactly this, showed the whites that black do not care about being picked on and this was one of the main reasons segregation ended. Whites were probably less motivated to pick on blacks because they were not getting angry anymore and were being mature to not fight back. Mr. King was the perfect leader for this movement because he was peaceful in his actions and people looked up to him as a role model.

Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream Speech" went down as one of the most influential pieces in U.S history. The part in the speech that is the most important is when he mentions his children's future in this nation. "I have a dream that one day 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". This part in the speech is very important since their was a lot of hate and animosity towards children that were of different skin color. They were being discriminated upon solely on the fact that they were darker or just in general "different" than the other kids. What really impacted me was that Martin Luther King Jr appealed not only to adults in his efforts for equality but also to children as its evidenced by how he integrated children into his speech. It's very hard to think that during that time America was a spot where hate prevailed among the nation. The reason that I think Martin Luther King Jr decided to include children in his speech is because he wanted to make it known that children are and will be a big part to the future of the United States and just in general the world. If the racism and hate didn't stop it was going to damage our future and the future was the children. After Martin Luther King Jr delivered the speech I think that people got a better understanding of what equality really was and meant. Im thankful that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr engaged in fighting for a better America even if it meant giving up his life in order to bring a change!

In Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech, he expresses his hopes for justice and equality in the future. During this time, African Americans were discriminated, segregated, and wrongfully treated because of their color. Although treated poorly, King strived to overcome the injustices through peaceful protest. In his speech he states "let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred," illustrating his outlook on fighting prejudices. Rather than fighting back violently, he voiced that in order to get their rights, they must do so in a patient and courageous manner. Thus, leaving a large and powerful impact upon Americans that still follow his beliefs today.

After listening to Dr. King's I Have a Dream" speech, the line "their destiny is tied up with our destiny and their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom" is personally the most important phrase said during the speech. King, in this section of the speech, mentions to the audience the crucial role nonviolence plays in the protest process. He not only provides encouragement of high discipline in protest behavior in order to prevent any serious conflicts with the opposing group, but also reminds them of how the "white men" are also humans who live in the same country. Despite the offenses made by some of them, King emphasizes how freedom cannot be achieved by damaging each other, and only through cooperation and understanding can they truly lead to a resolution. This is still true today, as many different groups, such as race, religion, and sexuality, live with each other in the same space. King's words apply to our current time by the people working together in order to continue building the country we live in.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's "I Have a Dream Speech" incorporated many significant factors asscoiated with the topic of civil rights and racial equality. One important statement that reached out to me was when he stated how any African American can be a "victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality," due to racism and prejudice. This is very important because as long as there are victims of police brutality there will never be justice in our nation. This is something that still needs to be reformed today. Another important part of the speech was when he thought about future generations in stating "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," meaning that all races would someday live together as one. This is important to our nation because over time people have come to value one another based on their personal traits and not on physical appearances. Dr. King laid the foundation for many changes in the nation that we live in today because now many people have come together and the majority are able to show peace and respect towards one another.

The content of Dr. King's speech, his inspiring presence, and the moment in history all came together to make the iconic "I Have A Dream" speech the defining moment of the American Civil Rights Movement. But there are several other reasons why this speech, delivered over 50 years ago, remains an example of one of the best speeches in American history.Dr. King doesn’t just address gradualism, he warns us about the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. He paints a vivid picture of the plight of African-Americans, "living on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity." He talks about his faith, with which "we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope."

One of my favorite quotes from Martin Luther King Jr.'s speech is, "Out of the mountain of despair, a stone of hope." I think that really has to say a lot about wanting and stiving for equality and jusice. African-Americans went through a lot during the times of segregation and faced a tremendous amount of despair and sadness. However, among all of that they still had hope that things could get better for them, and things would change. When fighting for any kind of rights, that quote really applies to all. I believe that's what makes it so revolutionary, the fact that it doesn't just pertain to African-American rights, but to all. That's what makes Martin Luther King Jr. an everyones man, because in many of his speeches he said things that could apply to all social justice issues. I believe that's why we have a special day for him, over all the other civil rights people that have fought for African-American rights.

No matter how long it takes or how difficult life becomes there will only be one outcome that will overcome because of the idea that it will happen rather than a slight doubt that what they are all reaching for couldn't be possible. The people who were willing to sacrifice their life for what they believe is right at times needs the motivation to stay strong and as a powerful speaker, Dr. King, was able to fulfill that through his speech. Dr. King conveys the confidence of a community that will succeed and who isn't going to allow for anything less than the freedom and justice they deserve.

In the famous Dr.King speech, "I Have a Dream" ,what I thought was really important and what really made an impact was the part in his speech where he says " I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be jude by the color of their skin but by their content of their character." The reason I believe this part was really important is because it gave a bigger reason for everyone to unite and stand up for their rights. That bigger reason is the kids I believe by him talking bout his kids and their future, it really made a lot of people think and motivated them because they don't want to see there kids going through the mistreatment and that made an impact on them, where they realize that they really have to fight for they're rights not just for themselves but for the sake of their children future, just as Dr.King said that he had a dream that one day "little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers"

I think the most important idea given by Martin Luther King Jr. is his comparison of the conditions that African-Americans were facing to a "bank of freedom." It is a more overlooked part of his speech, but the idea is one of the more powerful present in his incredibly well written and delivered speech. Comparing the lack of freedom to to a check America had given African-Americans that returned blank is an amazing metaphor pertaining to America's promise of freedom and equality to all, and it's failure to keep that promise for African-Americans. He creates a situation that people could find believable and applicable, and sympathize in a general way with what the African-American's were experiencing. This metaphor serves to give a sort of perspective to those who weren't experiencing the hardships African-Americans were, something that the movement benefited from greatly, making this one of the most important points in the speech.

I believe the most important part of Dr. King's speech is found in the beginning, where he begins talking about the "symbolic shadow" of Abraham Lincoln where he & 250,000 others stood in front of on August 28, 1963. I thought this was one of the many important aspects of his speech because he uses Lincoln as a way to express that although they escaped the literal manacles of slavery they have yet to escape from the one that cripples the spirit of a person which is segregation. Because if you think about it when Lincoln pushed for the 13th amendment to be passed it created this hope for those in slavery, & at that time it probably would have been assumed that that would have been the end of such turmoil amongst each other. Rather, it started something even bigger, nearly 100 years later & the African-American community still fights for freedom. It was given to them but not in its entirety. Therefore, by Dr. King referencing to Lincoln & the Emancipation Proclamation he creates a well organized foundation so the audience understands that while everyone in America can douse themself in the pleasure of freedom a large portion of its people cannot.

One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity." This is very important beacause even though in that time the negro was supposedly equal but it really wasnt. Finally because of his actions 50 yaers later we have the first black president. That would be a strong proof that his actions have taken effect. Now Black people do have the same rights and opportunities as any other man.

He wanted his supporters not to fight back, but rather show them that they were representing themselves in a peaceful way.

The most important or most powerful part in Martin Luther King's speech is when he says "But not only that; let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia!" and "Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee!" These are most important because both Stone Mountain Georgia and Lookout Mountain of Tennessee are places where KKK members join together and parade about their hate for people of color. When he says this, he is saying that people can forgive one another, The strongest of people are willing to see past things and forgive others, and that is what he wants to happen. He wants people to see past color, forgive each other, and act as one. For there to be no difference between whites and people of color.

This is important to our country because what he said in this part of his speech and what he wished came true, to some extent.

This phrase that King said was very important to me because throughout our history in America, we had no problem being the first to go to the moon, create the atomic bomb, and create freedom for everyone. King exaggerates that we can do all this but yet, it is taking a century after slavery was abolished to truly give African Americans freedom in the U.S. He is fighting for the same rush for black freedom as there was to get a man on the moon, or create the strongest bomb known to man. This is why i think this phrase said by King was the most important in his famous speech.

He fights for the rights of many colored races across america and wishes that discrimination will soon end. No matter how bad he was treated he still had love for the white people.

For me the most important part of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. speech is when he quotes "When will you be satisfied?" And he responds with "We can never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality. We can never be satisfied, as long as our bodies, heavy with the fatigue of travel, cannot gain lodging in the motels of the highways and the hotels of the cities. We can never be satisfied as long as a Negro in Mississippi cannot vote and a Negro in New York believes he has nothing for which to vote. No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream." This is really important because the negros can't stop fighting until they get the rights they deserve and the equal rights wherever they go. Same bathrooms, same drinking fountain, sit together, no segregation what's so ever. I like how Dr. King Jr. states that no negro will be satisfied until segregation is gone forever.

The best part of Martin Luther King Jr's speech was when he was repeating "Let Freedom Ring". He addressed all the meeting spots of the KKK in the south and declared that it was time to end white supremacy and that black and white people come together to stop segregation. It was very inspiring because he made a very strong point about how oppressed the colored people were and how someone needs to put a stop to it. MLK also described how black children were also being stripped of their dignity by not being able to do everything that other white kids their age are allowed to do. He states that the negro will "not be satisfied" unless their is racial justice in the United States. He also mentioned Abraham Lincoln and how he signed the emancipation proclamation freeing the slaves, yet the black people to this day were still not free. He closes his speech with "I have a Dream" using various inspiring metaphors about how one day there will no longer be such hatred and oppression but rather racial equality and rights for all.

I believe the most important part of the speech was the section is where Marty explains how the American people must never stop fighting for their rights. He says, "As we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall march ahead. We cannot turn back." This is important to me because today you still hear stories about police brutality toward people of color, along with many other racist actions. What I hear and see makes me realize that we as a people still have a long way to go in ending race-related issues. To this day, this section of Dr. Mart's speech inspires me and gives me hope for the future.

I think that the most heat touching part was when he said freedom will rain from the hills of Louisiana and a bunch of other places. MLK was a very kind man. Even though he wasn't treated the best and had all of the privileges but he always had hope for change. His speach open the minds of thousands of people. More and more desegregation happened after the speech of MLK. When MLK was speaking about how his children and all the other children should grow up without racism I think that so far we have actually moved and improved on what he asked. Today there's a lot less racism and everyone tends to get along in normal society or well at least in school. I think that if he didn't give this speech then a lot of people would be more Narrow minded, our society benefits by having everyone coexist together and it's very important to be more accepting of everyone. Overall MLK speech was veery affective and has put our society in a better place by letting people know what would be best for our society as a whole.

In Dr. Kings speech , the most important thing he said that came to my attention was to continue to tolerate hatred and now act out in any forms of violence . I believe that this was the most important part of his speech because it shows how much he was willing to take in as a person standing up for a whole race without using violence. Dr.King believed that instead of creating riot to cause attention , to use nothing but kindness and hope to get through the discrimination. That would then create more attention as to why aren't the African Americans are using violence due to all the hatred. in the speech Martin Luther King says " We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence . Again and again , we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force. " This shows that Dr. King wanted to show he will get through the struggle using something stronger than physical force . This part of the speech was important to me because in the generation we live in today there is still discrimination and most people want to use physical violence to try and shut it down. Using physical violence therefore creates more conflict rather then being the bigger person and using what Dr.King says "soul force" to avoid violence .

I think that one of the most important things that Martin Luther King addressed and made crucial in his speech was that one should be judged not by their appearance, but by their personality and "content of their character". It is important to, as they say, not judge a book by its cover. Everyone in this nation should be treated unless deserved not to. By this i mean, if someone were a felon, they obviously shouldnt be treated with the same respect, but an innocent person in our everyday society deserved to have the same rights and treatment as any other person. After all, we all pay taxes and do our part in society with work and other things that therefore entitle us to rights and oppurtunity in our nation. Everyone should be able to achieve their goals and reach success, and no one should be robbed from that chance just because of a simple appearance or religion.

I think the most important thing that he said in his speech was that one day all kids with different colors of skin will be able to sit and socialize together in peace and happiness. This is important because diversity is a very important characteristic of our society. We are able to have friends of a different color, race, ethnicity and not be penalized at all. Our country is no longer a mixed salad it is now a melting pot and that makes me happy. We are all different but are all seen the same and are all able to have the same experiences and opportunities. I am grateful we live in such a diverse country.

In Dr.Kings' "I Have a Dream Speech", the thing that was most important to me was the fact that he was determined to stop discrimination of all races. He successfully made a difference in our country and risked his life for something that was good for the country. He knew what he had to do which involved sacrificing his life for something that not everybody agreed on. This is important because now everyone gets along with everyone no matter the race, ethicity or language they speak.

I belive that the most important park of MLK's speech is when he states "With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day. " , to express the fact that if we must come together to go through the same experiences and we will be happy. This is important because people then had trouble realizing that they are just fighting for a silly reason that has no corrilation with the real problems.

Out of all the things MLK mentioned, i believe that his statement referring back to the Declaration of Independence is the most important aspect of his speech. He says that all men are created equal. Whether they are black or white, they should both have the same being equality. They should have the same opportunities,treatment and the chance to have their natural rights. He also argues that we are all God's children and in being such we should all be respected in the same way.i think in the way Martin Luther King used the Declaration was a form to create his speech format extremely impacting and moving our pathos and slowly persuading all his listeners. I also believe it allowed his speech to have a higher level of respect, the same way the Declaration earned it n its successful freedom from Britain.

"America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked "insufficient funds." But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. So we have come to cash this check -- a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and the security of justice". I think that this quote is one of the most important topics in the speech given by Martin Luther King Jr. to me this quote means the black people were given the rights as an American but are treated differently. The are not treated as if they are American as far as jobs respect and separation. He then goes on to talk about how American should escape from that way of thinking and to not judge people by the way they look, but how their personalities are. Martin Luther King Jr. Believed that this goal/ dream could be achieved without violence and the key to this goal was to be forgiving and to treat everyone with respect. I also thought that the best part of his speech was the repetitiveness of the lines "i have dream"

I believe that the most important part of martin luther kings speech is when king and his staff marched through Birmingham, Alabama. " They marched and protested non-violently, raising the ire of local officials who sicced water cannon and police dogs on the marchers, whose ranks included teenagers and children." This quote is very important because it shows how powerful king was even though he didnt use violence to prove his points. But that didnt matter to the whites because they did whatever they had to to try and stop him including using water cannons and police dogs on marchers. This quote shows how even though the whites did all that to the blacks, they still didnt react back with violence. King was a very peaceful man.

I believe that the speech that MLK jr said was important to the country and to the whole world. martin talked about the black people life when he said"the Negro still is not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity." this was important because even though the black people in america were free people still hated them and treated them differently. finally after he took action 50 years later black people got their freedom. he also talks about his faith and the way of thinking, with which "we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope."

"In the process of gaining our rightful place, we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence." This part of Martin's speech appears to be most important to me because he is saying to rise above the violence, he is saying that two wrongs does not make a right. And he was right, through his movement of nonviolence more was achieved than would have been if they acted out in violence. This shows how even though people were cruel and abusive, they should not retaliate, they should control themselves and be strong. He is a very strong and wise man for being able to say that he will not act out in violence even after all of the violence that was acted upon him, his family, and those he knew and loved. This part of the speech goes to show that even though it looked like racism was winning to those being racist, it wasn't, and no matter what MLK would keep striving for justice and equality. This is important because after seeing such good results from nonviolence, other movements also began to restrain themselves from violence, Martin Luther King Jr. is a inspirational, kindhearted man who made a difference, a legend.

The most important thing Dr. King said was that he doesn't want people to judge his children from the color of their skin, but their character. Saying that the color of their skin shouldn't be the reason why they are being judge or looked at differently that shouldn't have to do with anything their actions and who they are as a person should be what determines that.

The content of Dr. King's speech, includes an inspiring presence. This speech is what made people rethink their beliefs and actions towards people with colored skin. This moment in history is where all people came together to make the iconic "I Have A Dream" speech one of the defining moments of the American Civil Rights Movement. This speech remains an example of one of the best speeches in American history. The speech is very intellectual and emotional which makes this speech very eye catching and satisfying. However, i believe the most important thing Dr. King says in his speech is, "In the process of gaining our rightful place, we must not be guilty of wrongful seeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of diginity and discipline we must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again, we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force." That part of the speech is the most important to me and also my country. It is important to me because he talks about how blacks will always have a struggle and there are going to be many conflicts and problems worse than what they already are. Dr. king explains and give his instructions very clear about how to get the message across without causing any violence to the situation. Although, black people in this country today are so hurt by what happened in furgeson and Trayvon Martin we believe that no one will listen to them or understand where they are trying to come from so they find that causing violence to the situation will bring more attention. I know that is the truth, the media and the news will only show what violence blacks cause because they are angry with what is happening to the black community. I mean seriously, in 2015 at least 400 to 900 black men and women were killed by police or homicide deaths. If the black communities in this country feel like they aren't getting justice then the violence will begin. Although, Dr. King didn't belive in violent protests, how else are the black people supposed to reach out to the media and other people? I feel like in this generation, the world is falling back to the 1950's, when it comes to race issues and justice..

When Martin Luther King Jr. said that no man shall be judge by the pigment of his skin was the most important thing he could've said. The whole speech was directed towards African Americans, and the purpose for the speech itself was to gain African Americans equal rights as the White man. The addition of no man shall be judge by the pigment of their skin really causes people of all pigments to think about the differences besides the physical differences. It causes the white men, and even women, to think that African Americans are not all that different. That they want and need similar things are them. This allowed people to think about the similar purpose that they share with African Americans, and that is to live. To live in peace and prosperity with others. To stop living in fear and stop living life fighting to stay alive. To finally be treated as if everyone was the same pigment.

In my opinion, the most important part of the speech to me is when Dr. King says "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." This is the most important to me because he is basically saying that he wants everyone to see people ass who they are inside and not outside. He wants everyone to be treated equally and not have a problem with whites coming together with blacks as friends or s anything else. When he say the content of their character, in my opinion, Dr. King means who someone is as a person not what color they are. Dr. king's speech changed the world to be a better place than it was back then. Without him there would still be horrible racial segregation, even though there still is in some places in the world. Racal segregation isn't fair because people cant choose what color they are. This speech was a very important part of history.

One thing I found interesting in Doctor Kings speech, "I Have A Dream," was that he preached equality and harmony for all. Not just people of color, not just the oppressed, but everyone. He said repeatedly that everyone should join together and do what is right. I respect the fact in his quest for equality for black people he did not disrespect and slander the white. To me, this seems like a very peaceful way to end the oppression and start a new era or equality, respect, and reflection.

Dr. King's, "I Have a Dream Speech" is very important in the revolution of America. Without MLK's theory of a free country for all people there would not be migrated schools and a lot of people would not be alive today. The speech is very important to the country. One of the most important parts of the speech is the end when he gives his call to action. King states a time when "we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, 'Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!'" At the time this was very far fetch and looked at as foolish but Martin took the chance to show the nation that a migrated America is possible and would be amazing. Without Martin Luther King Jr. taking the chance at fighting against the norm and giving the speech I would not exist and a lot of the people I love would not either. I have a lot of friends and family that are not the same race as me and I could not imagine a life without them. If it was not for King who knows if I would be able to even speak to these people. Martin Luther King Jr. is one of the most influential and important people in American history. His "I Have a Dream" speech made life in America truly free and equal for all of mankind.

The most important thing about Martin Luther King's speech was the message of equality through brotherhood. It was not a speech calling for ill-gotten rights or hatred or divide, it was a calling for African Americans to rise above the hatred and the injustice and demand their rights in a way that God called them to. This speech gave me chills because I have never heard someone speak so honestly and passionately about what is right; and all in accordance to God's will. If Americans, white, black, blue or orange would be loving and understanding of each other's customs and cultures this would be a very different society we live in. Martin Luther King Jr. was an amazing leader because unified people, and it was shown through this speech.

Certain Americans were not treated equal, and Dr. King believed that with equality there is peace, no violence, less killings and just the spread of love across the country. Without Dr. King or this speech, the eyes of American leaders would not have been opened, and our rights would be very different, but now everyone is created equal no matter what race you are.

The most significant part of Dr.Kings "I Have a dream speech", revolves around his strong introduction of historical background and repetition of phrases that make his speech truly iconic. Although, the speech is regarded as iconic through the repetition of the phrase "I have a dream", it may be noted that the connection of Lincoln's background in the intro allows King to dive freely and indicate what occurred "Five score years ago" and the "Emancipation Proclamation" to subtly exemplify Lincoln's importance upon the civil rights movement. The intro serves a foundation of a peaceful speech that proves to be explosive in dialogue, yet at the same time fragile since it touches many individuals hearts delicately that change is not a question but rather a "god given right".

Martin Luther King, in his speech, I have a dream, addresses many of the issues affecting the lives of the African American community during the 1960’s. These issues are derived due to racism, which in this case was the idea of white supremacy. This idea consequently created the mindset that the blacks were the inferior race and that they are not nearly as capable in doing average task as compared to the whites, thus not granting them the rights they truly deserve. Martin Luther King stated, in his speech, that people should not be judged by the color of their skin but rather by the content of their character. This statement broadens the perspective of his audience by showing them the right way to judge an individual without any unjust discrimination. As time goes on, this idea remains with us today and the citizens of the United States are still taking time to make improvements to make this statement a reality.
