Written from the perspective of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Jasiri X
responds to Glenn Beck’s rally and the growing racial and economic
divide in America. From the police’s brutal beating of Jordan Miles in
Pittsburgh and murder of Oscar Grant in Oakland, the increasing poverty
and joblessness, to the ever expanding racial division lead by the
rhetoric of those like Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin…Dr. King’s dream has
turned into a nightmare.
