King’s dream turned to a nightmare

by José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico


NBC interviewed Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at his church 11 months before he was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee.

Dr. King spoke about the 3 evils of the United States Government, racism, economic exploitation and militarism. He believed that they were intertwined, and that you could get rid of one without the others. I believe he is correct.

The interest of the 1% to own all of the wealth for itself drives it to treat others as property. And, in order to take away other people’s wealth outside its nation, it must have the most powerful military in the world. To finance that, it must ignore the needs of its own people.

Dr. King said that his dream in 1963 turned into a nightmare by 1967. Click on the following link to watch NBC’s video of its interview:

Much work ahead to reach our dream

Nací en NYC. Me mudé a Puerto Rico en el 1980 donde eventualmente me convertí en independentista al ver que PR no se administra para los boricuas. Me retiré tempranamente de la pedagogía para luchar 24/7 por la descolonización de Puerto Rico a través de marchas pacíficas anuales y empujar a la ONU hacer su trabajo. Necesitaremos un tsunami de gente protestando permanentemente para obligar a USA a cumplir con la ley internacional que prohíbe el coloniaje.
