Dr King's prediction

On archive footage of Robert Kennedy and Dr Martin Luther King Jnr.
According to this 1964 clip, Robert Kennedy predicted an African American (Negro) president in around forty years but Dr King thought it would be less than that, around 25 years.
Political prediction is a difficult game – it is as difficult as predicting the fickle will of people, which is seldom based on sense or logic. My predictions about The Falklands/Malvinas and Iraq were wrong because I judged the participants sensible. I hope to heaven my predictions about global war and the downfall of Obama, by extrapolating history, prove wrong too.
