King is saying that when the architects of our republic wrote the Constitution and Declaration of Independence, they signed a note for Americans to fall heir.
"When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir."
King's saying that the Negro people are not free. They are sad about segregation and chains of discrimination. They have poverty. They are languished in American society.
"But one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free; one hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination; one hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity; one hundred years later, the Negro is still languished in the corners of American society and finds himself in exile in his own land."
King's saying that the new militancy shouldn't lead us to distrust of white people. Their destiny is tied up with our destiny. Their freedom is bound to our freedom. We can't walk alone.
"The marvelous new militancy, which has engulfed the Negro community, must not lead us to a distrust of all white people. For many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny. And they have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom. We cannot walk alone."
