Equality for Me but Not for Thee
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.
It is true that we are no longer slaves, but it is equally true that we are not yet quite free. We have been turned out of the house of bondage, but we have not yet been fully admitted into the glorious temple of American Liberty.
~Frederick Douglass (1869)
~Martin Luther King, Jr.
