I SWEAR THE SUN IS NEARLY SO HOT

I NEARLY MELTED.

>> INDEED DR. KING BUT I SUSPECT

WE DIDN'T MEET HERE TO TALK

ABOUT THE WEATHER.

>> INDEED, BROTHER MALCOLM

UNLESS WE ARTICULATE THAT THE

SUN IN THIS COUNTRY SHINES

BRIGHTER ON SOME THAN IT DOES ON

OTHERS.

>> YES, BUT WHEN THE SUN DOES

SHINE ON US IT IS GROWING THE

SEEDS OF REVOLUTION.

>> I SEE YOUR POINT BROTHER

MALCOLM BUT DO THOSE SEEDS NEED

TO BE WATERED WITH LOVE.

>> WELL, I SUPPOSE THAT IS THE

SUBJECT OF SOME DISCUSSION, DR.

KING.

I AM ALL FOR DISCUSSION BROTHER

MALCOLM UNLESS OF COURSE THE

WORDS EVOLVE INTO PROCLAMATION

OF HATE.

>> FOR IS THAT NOT WHY WE ARE

HERE TODAY, MR. KING, TO

DISCUSS.

CERTAIN WHEN WE DISCUSS.

>> WE ARE GOING TO DISCUSS AND

DISCUSS IT UNTIL I SAY THAT OUR

PEOPLE HAVE NEVER RESORTED TO

VIOLENCE BEFORE THE WHITE MAN

GAVE THEM NO CHOICE BUT TO PAY

HIM BACK IN THE ONLY CURRENCY HE

UNDERSTANDS.

>> BROTHER MALCOLM, IS THAT WHAT

YOU REALLY HAVE TO SAY AT THIS

POINT IN OUR LUNCH?

>> INDEED, DR. KING.

BECAUSE WE DIDN'T LAND ON

PLYMOUTH ROCK.

PLYMOUTH ROCK LANDED ON US.

>> OKAY, WELL, YES, ALL RIGHT.

I HEARD YOU SAY THAT BEFORE.

I DON'T KNOW WHY WE'RE TALKING

ABOUT ROCK WHEN IN FACT IT IS

THE FLESH AND THE BONE AND THE

DREAMS -- I HAVE A DREAM THAT

SOME DAY OUR CHILDREN WILL BE

JUDGED BY THE CONTENT OF THEIR

CHARACTER NOT BY THE COLOR OF

THEIR SKIN.

>> YEP, SAME FOR ME.

IN FACT, I BELIEVE THAT ONE DAY

A BLACK MAN WILL BECOME THE

PRESIDENT OF UNITED STATES.

HOPEFULLY FOR EIGHT YEARS.

OBAMA 2012.
