SHINE ON US IT IS GROWING THE

WORDS EVOLVE INTO PROCLAMATION

OF HATE.

CERTAIN WHEN WE DISCUSS.

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.

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.
