MLK…The Messenger vs the Message

Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. On this day, we celebrate, what…exactly?

Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday?

He was born in January 15th and today is the 16 th. I’ve always been one who celebrates birthdays ON the actual day of birth.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day is always celebrated on Monday so that government workers can have a day off. After all, they haven’t had a day off in nearly 3 weeks and they must be exhausted.

Is this a celebration of African-Americans who used to be Black after they were Negros in the days of Martin Luther King Jr? That would seem a little…racist…wouldn’t it?

It’s not the sort of holiday where people have family picnics or travel. It doesn’t have a traditional meal like Thanksgiving does. It’s not really full of festive fun for children or marked by church services either.

It’s supposed to be a celebration of the man and the ideals for which he stood.

Today, on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, you cannot watch the news without hearing it’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day going into and coming out of each and every break. For God’s sake, they are even giving Martin Luther King Jr. weather updates.

Yes, we all know it’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day and we don’t need to be piously reminded of it by those who don’t really understand WHY it’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day any more than do I.

Now, am I saying we SHOULDN’T have this holiday?

    This is absolutely brillant, and no I don’t think Dr. King would be all that happy . He would think that the wel-fare state does more to imprison people than give them the freedom and self respect that he fought and died for. At the time I didn’t truely understand his movement. Its much clearer to me now, we need leaders like him more today than ever before
