We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. Declaration of Independence
NOT the unalienable right of everyone being equal. Equal is not life. No one is equal in life. We are all given different talents, abilities, motivation and the like.
With the school system, everyone has an opportunity in life. It's what one does with that opportunity that makes the difference.
Al Sharpton gets this wrong *yet again* that everyone should be equal in their households. I guess in his world, everyone should do all the same.
He's twisting Martin Luther King Jr's dream into something it never was intended. Here is bit from his "I have a dream" speech:
Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred...I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character...one day right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers...
It was not making everyone equal like Al Sharpton posits - It's that a black person is equal with a white person - in rights, etc. HERE is the full text of the speech, go read it and you can tell plainly on its face that that is what he's talking about.
Al Sharpton serves no one but himself.
