«A Newsweek poll shortly afterwards [after King's "I Have A Dream" speech in DC] showed that 3% of African-Americans and 74% of whites believed that "Negroes were moving too fast".»

--"I have a dream": On August 28 1963, Martin Luther King stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and delivered a speech that made America - and the whole world - sit up and listen.
