Greenville Rally Recalls "March On Washington"

Like many other parts of the state and country, a rally was held in Greenville Wednesday to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the "March on Washington."

We asked people if they feel the dream Dr. King spoke of in his speech has been realized.

Kaitlyn Morris told us, "I do believe people are still being judged by the color of their skin. I don't agree with it, however it is part of our society."

Dontre Price said, "We're definitely ahead. I feel like we're getting better as far as racism goes and equality. I feel we're becoming more tolerate. It's just every now and then you have have incident where you show how far the country has gone, but it shows you how far we need to go."

Ernest Mercado told us, "we have we come a long way, absolutely. We have Obama as president and we are equals. There was no reason for racism then, and there's no reason now."
