“Dr. King’s Dream…is at risk like never before” because of Donald Trump’s election, Attorney Gen. Loretta Lynch declared at the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Ala. in a speech commemorating Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Lynch warned of increased border security, voter suppression and racism:

“I know that we are in difficult days now.  Many worry that Dr. King’s dream – and all that has flowed from it – is at risk like never before.

“In my travels I have seen the disconnect between the forces of our government and the communities we serve; I have seen the concerns that the voting booth will be moved out of reach, that our hearts will close along with our borders, that a prayer in a different tongue or posture will place one at risk.  And I have seen the fear that once again we will let a distinction without a difference govern our view of our fellow Americans, rather than what is in their hearts.”

Lynch also likened the election process to the spin of a roulette wheel – and warned that minorities will now become “children of a lesser god”:

“And I have seen the fear that, with the turn of the electoral wheel, so many of us will be seen as children of a lesser God.  I have seen all that.”

“Children of a Lesser God” is a movie, based on an award-winning stage play and love story dealing with deafness.
