Dr King had a dream and no one has a comment?

I wonder if every white person who decries the state of our nation has pondered that the country would be more Christlike if those of us who identify as Christians would have taken up the cross of hard work to help our brothers and sisters in poverty, in sickness, in trouble or those who have been guilty of nothing more than being born a minority. Instead that vital work was left to the non-believers to discover and work to mitigate.

As a white person, I say we have a lot to answer for.

A good place to start is to read the Church's statement on the history of blacks and the priesthood. If you are in any way uncomfortable reading it, then you might have some work to do.
