Former Va. Gov. Wilder Comments on Harry Reid

As we approach Martin Luther King Jr. day, our Former Governor reminds us of why they marched in the Civil Rights movement. Doug Wilder was compared Harry Reid to the racist White Citizen Council's of the 1950's.
See it over here
He says a greater apology is due.
I think one is due to the American people.
If Harry Reid is basing his Presidential support on skin color, and dialect, he is in familiar territory with the Democrat Party. The home of Klansman Byrd. The home of the founders of the Ku Klux Klan. The home of the party of segregation.

Let us see the words of a Republican, Martin Luther King Jr.

I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal."

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood.

I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.

I have a dream that my four 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.

I have a dream today.
