Dr King, Bayard Rustin and A Phillip Randolph did not rally 200, 000 people to dream or for a dream, they rallied a march so that they could all and we as Black people could all sleep and dream in peace knowlng that the president then would be forced to engage in new policy and sign new civil rights legislation as a result of the march!
Hey were by and large adults who thought like adults, and knew good and well what the powers and limitations of the POTUS was!
And after that march president Lyndon Baines Johnson felt forced to do this;



On January 8, 64 President Lyndon Johnson in his first State of the Union Address declares unconditional war on poverty in America, thus initiating a broad array of government programs designed to assist the poorest citizens of the nation including a disproportionate number of African Americans.

and this

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 is passed by Congress on July 2. The act bans discrimination in all public accommodations and by employers. It also establishes the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission (EEOC) to monitor compliance with the law.

and this;

On August 20, President Lyndon Johnson signs the Economic Opportunity Act, initiating the federally-sponsored War on Poverty. The act includes Head Start, Upward Bound, and Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA).

So for this march, that has passed with the advantage of the internet, social networks, and computers to spread the word as well as organize,
what demands are expected to be met by president Obama after this march?

In all due respect I think that is the most rediculous thing I have ever heard in my over 50 years! As anyone here knows I view the march as a joke and waste of time but from the resputs of Dr KIng and what LBJ was forced to do,
'I had a shadow of a hope that there was some rhyme to reason fro this particular march, but here is a bit of old news for those who refuse to look at reality;

50 Years After the March on Washington, Still Fighting for Jobs and Freedom


But what’s past is prologue. Many of the gains made as a result of the Civil Rights Movement are being rolled back, and some of the recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions are great examples of this, demonstrating just how much a constant presence the nation’s racist past remains.
In Shelby County v. Holder, the Court ruled section 4 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 unconstitutional. Arguing in its decision that “things have changed in the South,” the Court nullified the formula initially created by the act to determine what jurisdictions needed federal “preclearance” before amending “any voting qualification or prerequisite to voting, or standard, practice, or procedure with respect to voting.”
Critical race legal scholar Kimberlé Crenshaw told Washington, D.C.’s Afro-American newspaper that the decision was akin to “building a dam to keep the lowlands from flooding and for 40 years the lowlands don’t flood and then deciding that you don’t need the dam anymore.”
But despite these legal challenges, it seems clear to me that we are on the precipice of a moment of mass civil disobedience particularly involving Black people, the likes of which we have not seen in decades. From the Moral Monday protests in North Carolina, to the Dream Defenders in Florida taking on gun laws involved in the murder of Trayvon Martin and the prosecution of Marissa Alexander, toteachers and parents in Chicago and Philadelphia getting arrested to prevent school closures, to strikingfast-food and Walmart workers, to all the work challenging racial profiling and police violence, from New York City to New Orleans, this may be a historic moment for the Civil Rights Movement of today that is largely being reported by mainstream media as isolated incidents and not a potential turning of the tide.

I want my people to be aware of this dilemma regarding the upcoming election... I know politics. Yes Trump is admitting the truth about Black People building this so called country corporation (The United States). But you must understand that what they're planning on doing is to divide and conquer. This is all just for him to get re-elected. He's going to promise reparations and reneg at the last minute.
