Tej zaum nws yog ib qho yooj yim rau cov neeg uas tau yeej tsis muaj lub stinging xib xub hluav taws segregation hais, "Tos." Tab sis, thaum koj tau pom vicious mobs Lynch koj niam thiab txiv ntawm yuav thiab poob dej koj cov viv ncaus thiab cov kwv tij nyob rau tom whim; thaum koj tau pom ntxub sau policemen foom phem rau, ncaws thiab txawm tua koj dub cov kwv tij thiab cov muam; thaum koj pom qhov loj feem ntau ntawm koj cov nees nkaum lab Negro cov kwv tij xwv nyob rau hauv ib tug airtight vaj xov hlau ntawm cov neeg txom nyem nyob rau hauv lub midst ntawm ib tug affluent haiv neeg; thaum koj mam li nco dheev nrhiav koj tus nplaig cov thiab koj hais lus stammering thaum koj nrhiav tau piav rau koj rau lub xyoo laus tus ntxhais yog vim li cas nws tsis tau mus rau cov pej xeem lom zem ua si uas muaj cia li tau advertised nyob rau hauv TV, thiab saib kua muag welling nyob rau hauv nws ob lub qhov muag thaum nws hais tias Funtown yog kaw rau dawb lias me nyuam, thiab saib ominous huab ntawm inferiority pib tsim nyob rau hauv nws me ntsis kev puas hlwb ntuj, thiab saib nws pib distort nws cwm pwm los ntawm kev tsim ib qho tsis nco qab bitterness mus rau dawb neeg; thaum koj yuav tsum lam hais ib qho lus teb rau ib tug tsib xyoo laus tus tub uas yog nug: "Txiv, yog vim li cas dawb neeg kho kob neeg kom txhais li cas?"; thaum koj noj tus ntoo khaub lig county tsav thiab nrhiav nws tsim nyog mus pw tsaug zog hmo ntuj tom qab hmo ntuj nyob rau hauv lub seeb fab ntawm koj lub tsheb vim hais tias tsis muaj chaw pw yuav txais koj; thaum koj qaug hnub nyob rau hauv thiab hnub tawm los ntawm nagging tej yam tshwm sim nyeem ntawv "dawb" thiab "dawb lias"; thaum koj lub npe yuav "nigger,"Koj lub npe nrab yuav" me nyuam tub " (Txawm li cas los laus koj yog) thiab koj lub xeem lub npe yuav "John,"Thiab koj tus poj niam thiab niam tsis txhob yuav muab lub hwm title" Mrs. "; thaum koj harried los ntawm ib hnub thiab haunted los ntawm hmo ntuj los ntawm qhov tseeb hais tias koj yog ib tug Negro, nyob tas li ntawm tiptoe stance, yeej tsis heev paub dab tsi tom ntej no, thiab yog plagued nrog puab ntshai thiab txheej resentments; thaum koj mus ib txhis sib ntaus sib tua ib tug degenerating kev txiav txim zoo ntawm "nobodiness" -then koj yuav to taub vim li cas peb pom tau tias nws nyuaj rau tos. Muaj tuaj ib lub sij hawm thaum lub khob ntawm endurance sau tshaj, thiab cov txiv neej yog tsis txaus siab tsum plunged rau hauv lub abyss ntawm tag kev cia siab. kuv vam thiab cia siab, Sirs, koj yuav to taub txog peb tsim nyog thiab unavoidable impatience. Koj qhia ib tug zoo deal ntawm kev ntxhov siab vim peb zoo siab hlo mus ua txhaum kev cai lij choj. Qhov no yeej muaj tseeb kev txhawj xeeb. Txij li thaum peb thiaj kub siab lug txhawb kom cov neeg mus ua raws li lub Supreme Court lub kev txiav txim ntawm 1954 outlawing segregation nyob rau hauv cov pej xeem cov tsev kawm ntawv, thaum xub thawj siab ib muag tej zaum nws yuav zoo li es paradoxical rau peb consciously mus ua txhaum kev cai lij choj. Ib tug tej zaum yuav zoo nug: "Yuav ua li cas yuav koj tus thoob tswv yim rhuav ib co kev cai lij choj thiab mloog lwm tus?"Lo lus teb cov lus dag nyob rau hauv lub fact tias muaj ob hom ntawm kev cai lij choj: cia li thiab tsis ncaj ncees. Kuv yuav ua tau tus thawj rau tus thoob tswv yim mloog cia li kev cai. Ib tug muaj tsis tau tsuas yog ib tug kev cai lij choj, tiam sis ib tug cuj pwm lub luag hauj lwm kom ua raws li cia li kev cai. conversely, ib tug muaj ib tug ncaj ncees lub luag hauj lwm tsis mloog tsis ncaj ncees kev cai. Kuv yuav pom zoo nrog St. Augustine hais tias "ib tug tsis ncaj ncees kev cai lij choj yog tsis muaj txoj cai nyob rau tag nrho."

    This is such a descriptive glance of what discrimination looked like. It’s even challenging to think that the injustice of that extent wasn’t even one hundred years ago. MLK was an incredible fighter and motivator God used. One of my favorite quotes of all time…. ” Darkness can not drive out darkness, only Light can do that. Hate can not drive out hate, only Love can do that.
