  • 1.   1     THE  WHEEL  SPEAKS  ON  2013  -­‐  Celebrating  A  50  Year  Dream     A  50  year  lullaby  dreaming  and  dreaming  introducing  another  generation  to....you   guessed  it  The  Dream.  And  it's  genius  betcha  any  amount  of  money  Malcolm  X  won't   ever  be  celebrated  on  CNN  or  MSNBC  or  any  national  cable  publication  you  know   why?  The  last  thing  he  spoke  of  was  a  damn  dream.  Nice  and  sedated  the  way  we've   been  trained  to  become  very  conformed  and  broken  in.  I  am  not  saying  anything  in   any  way  negative  about  the  great  Dr.  Martin  Luther  King  but  it  most  definitely   wasn't  his  intent  to  dream  for  50  years  and  probably  why  he  was  assassinated  when   he  was  too.  Something  to  think  about...notice  I  didn't  say  something  to  dream  about.     Today  although  we  honor  a  great  man  we  continue  to  sedate  a  collective  nation   where  racism  is  still  tolerated  and  discrimination  is  more  relevant  today  than  it  was   when  I  was  a  mere  adolescent  child.  I  am  very  well  aware  there  will  be  those  who   will  read  this  today  and  in  all  due  respect  who  have  been  programmed.   Programmed  into  walking  and  talking  and  doing  not  what  is  assumed  to  be  the  right   thing  but  what  they’ve  been  told  is  right.  And  as  long  as  we  live  in  a  country  we’re   people  are  discriminated  against  openly  or  children  are  assassinated  in  the  street   and  jurors  supposed  to  be  peers  acquit  a  murderer  there  is  no  reason  for  a  dream  to   be  celebrated.              
  • 2.   2   I  pray  that  50  years  from  now  my  grandson  and  all  of  my  grandchildren  no  longer   have  to  listen  to  speeches  that  by  then  will  be  considered  prehistoric.  Especially   being  that  it  seems  to  be  only  a  part  of  the  culture  on  anniversaries  and  no  other   days.  Dr.  King’s  legacy  will  never  be  forgotten  it’s  truthfully  a  crutch  and  any  time   people  begin  to  take  a  collective  stand  for  anything  there  will  be  those  that  have  one   request  of  us  and  with  consistence  and  that  will  be  our  continuance  to  dream,   forever  and  ever.       Celebrating  A  50  Year  Dream  ~  written  by  Basil  Thomas   How  long  must  we  dream?   How  long  must  we  sing?   And  how  long  will  this  situation-­‐  remain  the  same?   And  so  many  in  positions  of  influence  -­‐won't  even  do  a  god  damn  thing.     I  had  a  dream.   A  beautiful  dream.   And  after  50  years  of  denial?   When  will  the  bell  finally  ring?     I  am  not  talking  about  freedom.   I  am  not  talking  about  race.   Just  simply  to  be  treated  the  same.   And  not  only  to  occupy  space.     I  had  a  dream-­‐it's  a  beautiful  dream.   Then  I  realize  one  thing.   As  long  as  we  keep  dreaming.   Not  a  damn  thing  will  ever  change.     Respectfully,   THE  WHEEL  SPEAKS  ON  2013   (The  Way  Humanity/Hudson  Expects  Everyone  to  Live)
