I look to a day…

“I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Taking time to find specific books on things like quotes can be more than challenging to say the least. Thanks to online search sites (like Google, Yahoo, etc), information that would take tremendous amounts of time and energy is now accessible at your fingertips. To find this actual quote from the late Dr. King would’ve indeed taken some time. With that said, lets honor the man that delivered this quote. My brain is a little puzzled though. As many people who are alive today that know this quote, why haven’t this quote gone viral yet?

All the things online that go viral something as “honorable” as Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech one would think would’ve gone viral many times around. Even though the race issue is still a sensitive and taboo subject, we’re still far from solving this tragic disease in our society. Social media has changed the way we do business, the way we learn, and even the way we’re entertained. So much so that only in tragedy and/or black history month are the only times we are reminded of Dr. King’s words spoken about the character of a person being the primary indicator of who someone is.

Now that I’ve honored the late Dr., I must give credit where it’s due. The world of social media does have its upside. Having an easier time finding critical information or even just browsing is a byproduct of this new electronic world. If the internet world can produce one of the greatest quotes from one of the greatest speeches in this country’s history (U.S.A), then what else can be dug up?

We're a class learning about the ins and outs of social media. We learn by doing.

One thought on “I look to a day…

  1. I feel as if a lot of things that go viral aren’t worth even looking at. Gangnam style went viral while the NSA was buying billions of rounds. To me I’d rather see things go viral that actually affect us. While the Government is working on taking away our constitutional rights, people are being distracted by these viral video. It bothers me just as much as having wet socks in -30 degree weather. #check
