Tranquility would never be achieved in the prescence of racism. Revolts would continue and the nation's foundation will continue to shake. He then addresses his people by highlighting the importance of non-violence and peaceful movements, maintaining diginity and discipline, in achieving their rightful place, that distrust should not be offered to all white people for no one can walk alone. Citing the current setting and limits Negro's are facing, he advocates the pursuance of civil rights, continously striving until "justice rolls down like waters". King encouraged all the victims of social injustice to display courage and hope, not fearing the soicety, and to "avoid wallowing in the valley of despair", for change might be achieved.
