The Anomaly Of Two America's: 2020 Interview With Martin Luther King From 1967 ("The Other America")
After seeing the disturbing video of another unarmed black man, George Floyd,  being killed by a white police officer while several officers watched and did nothing, my heart sank so low in my chest that I thought I could feel it beating in my stomach.    It was at that moment, it became apparent to me, as Dr. Martin Luther King said, that there are two Americas. One which is beautiful, people have endless opportunities, and millions of people experience life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. However, in this other America blacks are killed by whites and the white killers walk free , blacks kills blacks with no regard for their life, blacks are more likely to go to jail for a crime and more likely to get a longer sentence for the same crime as a white offender. Abortion clinics are more likely placed in a low income neighborhood and millions of babies are aborted every year. In this other America a black person is more likely to die from COVID-19 than a white person because of the systemic racism set  in place many years ago that did not offer the poor and African Americans the same access to health care, healthy foods, and the like. In this other America, if a person succeeds it is celebrated because it’s not expected. In this other america the life is not valued, there is no real liberty, and it's a real struggle to pursue happiness.    This is the anomaly of two Americas.    Considering the critical state that our nation is in, I scheduled this interview with someone from history whose story has shaped history and positively impacted the world we live in today. In looking for answers, I decided to consult someone who has real world experience and measurable results. I simulated an interview in 2020 with Martin Luther King from 1967 by using excerpts from  his speech, The Other America, that I believe can help guide us in how to respond today.    Martin Luther King's speech, The Other America, is a well know historical message from 1967 where he addressed racism, economic justice, and poverty by explaining that there are two Americas and expressing what needs to be done to merge the two as one.    I referenced Martin Luther King's speech from here: https://www.crmvet.org/docs/otheram.htm    I used his recorded speech from here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dOWDtDUKz-U&feature=youtu.be
