Dr King was advised by his advisers, to leave out the I have a dream part.

 

the 2nd greatest speech in History. Mr Gorbachev tear down this wall . Reagan was told by everyone to not dare say that, as it would inflame tensions.  His own staff and the State Dept had a cow about it

But they were obviously vegetarians if they couldn't swallow what Pres. Reagan planned to say.

Thank you, Nature Boy. This speech never fails to move me to tears. I am an optimist, and hearing it again makes me believe that one day we can achieve the vision our founders framed for us.

I assume you don't mean owning slaves and only property owners voting?

Haha, of course not. I mean the bigger picture.

On the way home tonight, I asked my onboard Alexia, to play Dr Kings I have a dream speech. Instead it brought up his last speech, commonly called the I've been to the mountaintop speech. It's really hard to imagine he didnt have some kind of divine inspiration. Here is a snippet of the speech. He was killed the next by a democrat by the name of James Earl Ray

 

 

Well, I don't know what will happen now. We've got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn't matter with me now, because I've been to the mountaintop. And I don't mind. Like anybody, I would like to live – a long life; longevity has its place. But I'm not concerned about that now. I just want to do God's will. And He's allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I've looked over. And I've seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the Promised Land. So I'm happy, tonight. I'm not worried about anything. I'm not fearing any man. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.[1]
