What do we realistically think we can achieve as a group here in this country? Is true equality a reality?
Hundred years ago, when Blacks were having their bodies hung from trees, their testicles hacked off, and basic rights taken from them on a daily basis, I'm sure someone had pondered this very same question: "What can Black people realistically expect to achieve in this country?" Now, because of our ancestors' unwaivering faith and sacrifice, everyone everywere is asking themselves: What can't those Black people realistically achieve in this country? Black people have survived the worst treatment that any group on the planet has ever endured, and despite the problems that we see in poor Black communities, we remain a optimistic and goal-oriented people. We should be telling ourselves everyday that we are not only THE American Dream, we represent the World's Dream.
