King was born in the deep South in the middle of poverty, attended segregated public schools and graduated from Morehouse College, a Negro institution. He saw a nation sorely divided and devoted his life to uniting it. Obama was born into relative affluence in Hawaii, attended private schools and graduated from Harvard. He saw the nation King fought to unite and proceeded to polarize it. King fought for equal opportunity for everyone, a decidedly conservative notion. Obama strives to equalize wealth, a decidedly socialist notion. King had a dream. King’s dream was of a color blind America where all men would be judged by their character and not by the color of their skin. Obama also has a dream. His dream is from his father whose vision was of a utopian world without a superpower he deemed to be oppressive.
Where King sought healing, Obama seeks reparations. King sought to transform America he saw by ridding the nation of segregation and racism. Obama has vowed to transform America but has never revealed exactly how he Hopes to Change it.
Martin Luther King is rightly honored by a holiday. If Barack Hussein Obama gets a postage stamp it will be enough.
