History: Martin Luther King Speech “The Three Evils”

In observance of Martin Luther King, I decided to honor his legacy by listening to several of his speeches on YouTube.  The speech below “The Three Evils of Society” was profound and relevant to the times we are living in today. Some may beg to differ because we have a black president but socially and economically it has not.

“Why is equality so assiduously avoided? Why does white America delude itself, and how does it rationalize the evil it retains?

The majority of white Americans consider themselves sincerely committed to justice for the Negro. They believe that American society is essentially hospitable to fair play and to steady growth toward a middle-class Utopia embodying racial harmony. But unfortunately this is a fantasy of self-deception and comfortable vanity.” – Martin Luther King Jr
