What would Martin Luther King think?

martin luther kingToday is a day of reflection for a lot of people. Maybe not a lot of people in the South, but still a lot of people.

And one of the things that I, Brett Alan Bern, reflect on today is the state of our society and what Martin Luther King would think of it were he still alive.

What would he think of the racial inequality?

What would he think of the economic disparity?

What would he think of the Super PACs and that elections can be bought now more than ever?

What would he think that we have a black President and that half the nation wants to bring him down simply because he’s black.

What would he think that we have a government that seems to be way too involved in our lives?

What would he think of Wall Street and the bailouts?

What would he think that gays still cannot marry legally in most of the country?

What would he think of the abuse within our Catholic church and our college sports system?

Do you think he’d be disappointed that we haven’t come further?

Aren’t you?
