Today marks the 44th Anniversary of the assassination of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. King stood for non-violence and equality of all people.

Today as we look back on the life of Dr. King, how much have things changed in America as it relates to violence and equality? Of course the big topic of discussion in the African American community is the Trayvon Martin case and how it will play out over time.

When you take a deeper look into violence in America, this country is the military arm of the three headed monster. There is so much violence in our communities, television, and entertainment. Although we constantly say “stop the violence”, our military forces get a pass as if war and occupation is not violence. When our society is constantly bombarded with violence from the media, movies, evening news etc., it plants the subconscious seeds of violence in our society and people.

Violence is violence and to truly understand what has and is happening in our society, just remember the means by which this country was founded and built and how those principles still exists to this day and all you have to do is Wake Up from the dream!
