English Lesson 70

“Was Washington’s view of the future also my view of the future?”

“Washington believed that someday everyone would be treated as equals regardless of their race.  His view of the future was ‘A new heaven, and new earth.'”^

During his time blacks and whites did not ride in the same cars on the train, they did not sit together in the bus.  Blacks were always discriminated.  His race probably got the last cars on the train, and the whites got the front cars on the train.  In the bus the whites got the front and the blacks got the back.  This mainly applies to everything.  Blacks probably got the cheap rooms of the hotel well the whites got the top rooms of the hotel.

Now you see that the whites did not like the blacks that much at all, and that is why “Washington believed that someday everyone would be treated as equals regardless of their race.  His view of the future was ‘A new heaven, and new earth.'”^

So far what he believed in is coming true.  Blacks can go to any hotel and get a room that a white person can get.  They can go to the public swimming pool now without getting kicked out.  They can go to the same restaurants as the white people go to.  They can go to the same schools, they can get the same jobs, and more.

What Washington believed has so far come true.
