While it does seem like a cycle or that "history bends towards justice", let us remember that history will not bend on it's own. We are the agents of history. It will not passively "cycle back" or "bend itself", we must make actions towards reformatory justice.

"But as I learned in the shadow of an empty steel plant more than two decades ago, while you can’t necessarily bend history to your will, you can do your part to see that, in the words of Dr. King, it “bends toward justice.” So I hope that you will stand up and do what you can to serve your community, shape our history and enrich both your own life and the lives of others across this country." - President Barack Obama - http://content.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1886571...
