Hope everyone’s been lucky enough to have this day for themselves and/or family, but it occured to me that the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. should no more be “enjoyed” than Yom Kippur.
From that cool cat at Chicotown:
It’s a crime to treat this holiday as nothing more than a “black holiday” (or a Free day from school/work) and to suggest that his life didn’t affect yours just because you are not of an African decent. Its your holiday too, realize it, embrace it, and help continue his legacy and his progress towards universal peace and tolerance.
Couldn’t have said it better, yo. Keep the dream alive.
