Okay, let’s say for even the slightest moment, you’re correct and he should have run for office. This is to run for office in a nation which had a very serious civil rights problem. with black and white drinking fountains… hangings for looking at white women… threatened voting rights… having to give up a bus seat…
Yeah, sure… he’ll win. :roll:
Tell you what, Jen. Go and publicly speak your feelings at a local pub or a mall or write a column in a well read publication. See how many people share your feelings about MLK. Ask your congressman to make a statement saying, “We made a mistake giving MLK a day of rememberance.” Tell your black friends… (if you have any black friends :lol: :lol: :lol:)… what you told me. See first hand how he or she will react.
If you feel sooo strong about it… DO SOMETHING ABOUT. I would love to see it.
