Cheetah: Happy Dr. Martin Luther King, jr. Day!, Obama, Hope

Happy Dr. Martin Luther King, jr. Day!

What are some 'cultural' implications of his "I Have a Dream" speech (1963) this MLK jr. national holiday, and Obama's election and presidency tomorrow? How does 'culture' work, especially vis-a-vis language? How is the 'American Dream' extended with Obama's presidency, and what cards will Obama and his government play over the next many years to further this dream for all of us, especially for democracy, freedom, justice and prosperity?

How does an individual's way of thinking, and his or her circles or networks, such as MLK jr.'s or Obama's, influence a set of wide-spread 'cultural' understandings, that may come and go over time, but which people can elicit or draw upon, and build upon, here in the name of social justice?
