The New Martin Luther King

By Mr. Sameh Selim- a member of the United States Press Agency

American history is full of tragedies and painful events from the beginning when the new continent was discovered, then the elimination of the indigenous population and their dispersal, and the establishment of the first American state at the hands of the founding fathers, headed by George Washington, the first president of the United States of America, then the liberation of enslaved people at the hands of Abraham Lincoln.

Then comes the second stage of liberation at the hands of the late great Martin Luther King, who was born on January 15, 1929, and was assassinated in April 1968. He is an African-American born in Atlanta, Georgia. He was a religious man and political activist who advocated ending racial discrimination against blacks in 1964. He was responsible for issuing the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Right Act in 1964, and he won the Nobel Peace Prize.

After his assassination, events continued and accelerated. History repeats the events of the past in their evening, but less severe than the past, in new and innovative ways, without resorting to material or physical violence, which has become little under the power and the rule of law in the state of institutions and regulations that do not have mercy on the wrongdoer.

But in light of the strength and prestige of American law, there are still things that are hidden, some of which have become public. Racial discrimination still exists, sometimes in a declared form and sometimes in an undisclosed way, for fear of falling under American justice, but it differed in its structure and content from the previous one, so racial discrimination became practiced against legal immigrants from Blacks and whites alike became a sharp distinction declared between those who were born on American soil and those who obtained citizenship through the court, to get good jobs and privileges.

Although American society is based mainly on the shoulders of immigrants and their many talents, which influenced this country and made it a great nation, denial still exists in the hearts of some of those who hate themselves and oppose the rule of law and human rights advocated by the old Martin Luther King.

So will we wait for the new Martin Luther King to eliminate these negatives, which have become a hidden method practiced against legal immigrants to spread the spirit of hatred and discrimination among American citizens?
