Dr. King delivers this address speaking to humanity's failure to offset discrimination. He believes the United States, with all its technological and democratic advances, could stand to learn from the social morality of India, which is considered a "less developed nation." Dr. King continues by referencing his recent trip to India and being profoundly struck by the country's "deep ethical responsibility and obligation of the whole people." In comparison, the present situation in the United States is unfortunate and does not have a "moral commitment to deal with the evil of discrimination." Specifically noted is the continuous issue of unemployment.
