Sojourner's Place

a prediction 40 years in the making  

Posted by SjP in ,

The caption reads: A POWERFUL AND PROPHETIC THOUGHT RENDERED BY ROBERT KENNEDY 40 YEARS AGO: He gave a speech to the "Voice of America" all around the world and despite what was going on in the country, particularly in Alabama, Bobby Kennedy said this in 1968:

"Things are moving so fast in race relations a Negro could be president in 40 years. There's no question about it,in the next 40 years a Negro can achieve the same position that my brother has. Prejudice exists and probably will continue to, but we have tried to make progress and we are making progress. We are not going to accept the status quo."

Speak the Truth!

Obliged to you for hearing me, and now old SjP ain't got nothing more to say.

Wow, that is pretty profound and prophetic. That's why I have always said that even if yu don't agree with Barack Obama's positions, you cannot ignore the significance of his achievement in American politics.

I hope that becomes a fulfilled prophecy.
