Still Dreaming?

The fact that I'm posting MLK's "I Have A Dream" speech on MLK Day is expected (and not very clever). However, this is the first MLK Day with a black President overseeing the nation (still milking Obama firsts. Like I said: I'm not very clever). Whether that fact is in and of itself inspirational is neither here nor there; I am far more interested in how we collectively view this speech in light of our current President.

Has the lens through which we collectively remember/view this MLK speech changed now that our President is black?
