For Us Weekly, Honoring MLK’s Dream Involves Black Men Holding Umbrellas For Rich White Ladies

I Guess Honoring MLK's Dream Involves Black Men Holding Umbrellas For Rich White Ladies

UsWeekly.com covered yesterday’s Martin Luther King Jr. Let Freedom Ring festivities in Washington, DC, and found a photograph that deftly captured what MLK’s “dream” was all about. Yes, I’m pretty sure that when Martin Luther King Jr. gave his famous “I Have A Dream” speech, there was a paragraph (maybe two!) about the collective unconscious yearning black men everywhere felt to hold umbrellas for rich white women. Here, this unnamed gentleman gets to fulfill his special dream, by holding aloft an umbrella for LeAnn Rimes as she belts out a tune on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Thank you, Us Weekly, for so deftly capturing the civil rights movement’s valiant efforts. [Us Weekly]
