At University of Oregon, MLK Not Inclusive Enough

Hat tip National Review and The Daily Emerald

“I have a dream that my four little 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." 

There are some weird ducks walking around the University of Oregon, where one of Martin Luther King's greatest quotes was recently put on a campus wall. Then some students wanted it taken down because it wasn't "inclusive enough"

Read on.

As I commented on the Daily Emerald online article, the above quote is one of the greatest in our nation's history. It came from one of the greatest speeches you will ever hear in the English language.

Fortunately, more sensible heads prevailed and the quote remains. Yet, it brought embarrassment to the university. (It was mentioned on Bill O'Reilly's show this evening.) Somebody needs to explain to these young people that sometimes you can't include every single interest group in one sentence.
