Most Say MLK’s Dream Still UnfulfilledBreaking News
tags: Martin Luther King, MLK
Views of Martin Luther King Jr. Day haven’t changed, but even after seven years of having the first black president in office, Americans are more dubious than ever that King’s dream of equal opportunity has been achieved. Blacks are the most skeptical.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 28% of American Adults believe America has reached the day King preached about in his famous “I Have A Dream” speech when men and women of all races have equal opportunity. That’s down from a high of 35% two years ago at this time. But 61% say the United States has not yet reached a time of equal opportunity, up from a low of 49% in 2012 and surpassing the previous high of 59% in August 2013 on the 50th anniversary of King’s speech.
