1.)It openly criticized the Governor of Alabama
2.)It supported the peaceful congregation of peoples of all races and religions
3.)It pointed out racial problems in the South but ignored racial injustice in the North
=4.)It invoked the power and symbolism of "the American dream"
well, you must have not listened to the speech at all. I would listen again to see if you hear anything about Alabama.
There is stuff about alabama.
"I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of interposition and nullification; one day right there in Alabama, little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers."
What evidence do you find that he ignored racial injustice in the North?
The last part of the speech definitely invokes the power and symbolism of the American dream.
The answer is 3.) It pointed out racial problems in the South but ignored racial injustice in the North.
