Today is the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. The civil rights leader was assassinated 44 years ago. He had big dreams for America, including, he said, that "One day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed."
In that spirit, I dream of a day when the nation will have elections in which no candidate can hope to scare up votes by lobbing racial stink bombs as Rick Santorum did when he said, "I don't want to make black people's lives better by giving them somebody else's money; I want to give them the opportunity go out and earn the money."
Asked to explain, Santorum said he meant no insult, but was simply tongue-tied. Or how about Newt Gingrich's comment that he would go to the NAACP and "explain to the African American community why they should demand paychecks instead of food stamps." What? Someone should explain to Mr. Gingrich that most food stamp recipients are not black.
Then there's Ron Paul. He has a history of publishing newsletters more worthy of the KKK than a presidential candidate. How can the same candidates who rail against class warfare turn right around and make comments that can be construed as encouraging racial hatred and division?
Finally, for Mr. Santorum's information Dr. King said something else that, unfortunately, still is true, "Being a Negro in America is not a comfortable existence."
