“The first thing that must be on the agenda of our nation”

And we’ve got to see that this (racism) still exists in American society. And until it is removed, there will be people walking the streets of live and living in their humble dwellings feeling that they are nobody, feeling that they have no dignity and feeling that they are not respected. The first thing that must be on the agenda of our nation is to get rid of racism. — MLK, “The Other America”
