In this Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2013 photo, Bernice King stands in the King Center next to banners hanging in memory of her father, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., in Atlanta. One of her father's quotes has been cited as one of America's essential ideals, its language suggestive of a constitutional amendment on equality: "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." Yet today, 50 years after the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s monumental statement, there is considerable disagreement over what this quote means when it comes to affirmative action and other measures aimed at helping the disadvantaged.
