Do you remember this line from MLK’s “I Have a Dream” speech at the Lincoln Memorial in 1963?
“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.”
The video below explains what happened in San Diego on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day 2012 when the White children played with African-Americans at the “table of brotherhood” while the city celebrated its 32nd annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Parade.
Note: In The Color of Crime: California, we learned that African-Americans are 5.9 percent of California’s population, but are responsible for 23.8 percent of homicide, 21.8 percent of rape, 38 percent of robbery, 20 percent of aggravated assault, 21.8 percent of burglary, 21.5 percent of theft, 19.7 percent of motor vehicle theft, 22.3 percent of forgery, 22.1 percent of kidnapping, and 17.5 percent of sex offenses.
