Star Jones on Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream: "There is disparity amongst this country economically and until we fix it, the dream will continue to be delayed"

On the heels of Wednesday's celebration of the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, "Piers Morgan Live" invited Star Jones to offer her perspective on Wednesday's ceremony as well as Dr. Martin Luther King's famous "I have a dream" speech.

Jones began by telling Piers Morgan about her (almost) 95 year old grandmother Pauline and how much has changed in her lifetime:

"What she has seen in her lifetime has changed so drastically that it makes her head spins sometimes," she exclaimed. "But yes, just because there is a black man in the white house with a beautiful brown family, we can't get lulled into complacency into thinking that we have overcome or that the dream has been realized."

Jones explained the great divide separating America from realizing King's dream:

"The great divide right now, that in my opinion blocks the dream from being realized, is this tremendous economic divide. And the economic divide with the African American community and the Caucasian community or the majority of Americans is one that until we get that under some control ... then you're going to see the dream continue to be denied," Jones said. "There is disparity amongst this country economically and until we fix it, the dream will continue to be delayed."

Watch the clip for more of Morgan's interview with Star Jones as she talks more about the great divide in America, and for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.

    Star Jones need to know Africans don't twerk in the bushes, if she is so myopic in ideas as to what say in her answers she should at least show some respect to Africa.

    Having Tavis Smiley talk about President Obama is a WASTE OF TIME.
    Smiley is so jealous of the President that he can NEVER say anything good about Mr. Obama.
    All Smiley could say last evening was that MLK, Jr. was non-violent, Well, so is President Obama.
    There is such a thing as International Law. Mr. Smiley could not address that situation because his only goal is to slam the President. Don't waste your time have Smiley on your show.
