Ethiopian immigrant reflects on Martin Luther King's 'I Have a Dream' speech

ST. LOUIS (KSDK)
- There was a twinkle in his four-year-old eyes as he looked into the big broadcast camera and said "are you taking my picture?" And then he looked up at his father before he moved closer to the camera.

Gedlu Metafaria's memories are different than his four year old son's. He remembers starving children. He remembers soldiers who killed other children and forced their parents to pay for the bullet to take the bodies back.

He remembers the war in Ethiopia in 1979. It's the year he found freedom. He escaped the ravage and horror of his homeland and came to America. He heard Dr. Martin Luther King's infamous words, "I have a dream." That was a 30 years ago.

I know one another person, one another historical giant who stands shoulder to shoulder with the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. Our most benevolent leader Saint Meles Zenawi.

All I and the entire world know is the fact that in Meles’ birth Africa was born again. In Meles’ dexterity Africa was able to climb up onto the world forums and was heard loud and clear again for the first time in its existence. In all of his interviews he was a masterpiece!!! In all his deliberate pow wows with all of the leaders of the most powerful nations of the world he was a masterpiece. He proved to all of them that Africa also has the oomph and intelligence to move its people forward to take them all out of abject poverty. He ascended the pulpit and summoned his people from Bab El Mandeb to Nouakchott from Alexandria to Cape Town and asked them to follow him to the Promised Land. And they all did!!!! The only ones who did not heed to his sacred clarion calls are those down town loafers who made sitting on the corners of 9th and 18th streets and complain about everything all day long their romance of the season. He never offended anyone except those who started hating him even before they saw and heard about him. Those are bigots of the third kind just behind the Nazis, KKK’s and terrorist because they would not stand a chance against him if he is still around. I really missed him!!!! The poor of the entire world is missing him!!!! I know where he is. He is sitting right next to Jesus up in the Heavens!!!! I am calling upon the leaders of our Tewahedo Church to canonize his Holiness Meles and bestow sainthood upon him as soon as possible. Like now!!!!!!

Gedlu Metaferia, thank you for your honest testimony about what kind of horror and humiliation the Ethiopian people faced during the DERG military dictator regime for seventeen years. Most of those bloodsucker whom had been killing an innocent children and charging parents or family members for the bullets they used to kill, could be found all over the world hidden their identities…However, they could be easily identified by observing their unstable and crazy behaviors…For example, TEDDY sounds one of them blood suckers who have a hard feeling about the current government, because they chased him out of Ethiopia from where he was sucking an innocent blood…

God bless the world.

DR MLK Jr’s “…I have a Dream” speech was to turn injustice to justice, unfairness to fair, rights violations to liberty. Enable restricted votes to exercise their rights, to stop discrimination, segregation, favoritism, degradation. To emphasis humans must be measured by their own characters rather than the color of their skins etc etc etc

Quite the contrary, Ethiopia is going backwards. The only free black African nation, slowly but surely turning itself into contemporary slavery by Arabs, India, china etc losing control, selling core public assets to foreigner and ready to become economically shackled contemporary slaves.

Those who dare associate MLK with the rotten racist, tribal, hateful village idiot aka the late Zenawi MUST BE SUPER RETARDED or mentally unstable! The two are as far apart as planet earth & Pluto. Zenawi was tribal, self-righteous man who openly exclaimed “Enkuan kezih Hizb/tribe teweldku” rotten low speech. “Bandira cherk new” another rotten speech. Ethiopia has only 100 years of history another nauseating speech…Past leaders are feudal dictators, Minelik and Tewodros did this and that? Yet another super rotten brain of Zenawi’s etc etc etc.

The late tyrant was a gorilla secessionist with the aim to disintegrate his nation three ways. Unfortunately he was not successful as he massively fail out with his brothers in arms & his blood people aka Eritreans and was forced to keep his barren zone with Ethiopia! Zenawi bragged he fought to get rid of oppressive, killer regime but he ended up being worse than the tyrant he got rid of. Please have some shame!
