This is so stupid. The very people who cannot afford to miss a day of school is encouraging our children to skip school because MLK day is being skipped due to the winter storms. The point of the holiday is to honor the man's works. But, President's day is also being skipped; does that mean we do not like our nationÂ’s leaders? This is absurd. The priority is the childrenÂ’s education.

What kind of parent would encourage their child to skip school??? When we were kids we went to school on alot of holidays to makeup for missing cause of snow. didnt hear anyone telling their kids to skip cause it was a holiday. These same people would be whinning if their kids were sent to school on days that the road were bad. Probably the same bunch that is whinning cause they are closing LOW performing schools where their child is going and are being bussed,at no cost to them,to schools that are doing alot better. These type of people will whine about anything and everything and it always, in their minds, is a race issue.Explain to me, just how they see the school issue as being a bad thing for their child?

It is insane that parents and community groups cause such a protest because MLK day is being used as a make-up day. I applaud the schools for making this decision. For too long, they have been scared to use this day, but never think twice about Presidents day, Memorial Day, or Good Friday. What about honoring our presidents or the people who have died for our freedom? Christian groups do not protest and threaten to keep kids away from school when Good Friday is used. The real meaning of MLK's works is lost by those trying to 'honor' him. He would have wanted all children to be in school to learn and become something better.

Al Sharpton is telling people to keep their kids home. Smart man he is, lol.. Teaching kids to skip school when they dont get their way. What a waste of air he is. The NAACP is right there to scream and yell when they think someone is being racist toward them but I have never heard anything about them trying to help teenagers stay off drugs,out of gangs,helping teenage moms.They let the the state take care of that.

I just heard on the news that the NAACP is going to start protesting all new business that come to charlotte telling them that charlotte is a racist city. Real smart. First they want to teach the kids that if they dont get they way they need to protest and now they dont want any new businesses to open in charlotte so no one can get a job and the ones who are living off welfare will get to keep living off welfare. What a very smart group of people this is!As usual, they want to live off taxpayers money and do nothing. Some things never change.

Think about it, if the NAACP actually did their jobs, they would work their way out of existence. However, they need people to depend on them in order to sustain their power. This is a very sad organization and a detriment to all my black brothers and sisters.

I cant help but wonder just what does NAACP do besides protest? I have never heard of them helping the black unwed mothers, teen mothers or helping to prevent children from joining gangs or to stay off drugs. This is the type of thing the NAACP SHOULD be doing instead of teaching kids that if they dont get what they want they need to protest.I agree, this is a very sad organization.

I am black, I grew up poor! I had two brothers and a single mother before going to foster-care at 12. I graduated from a fine university (Buffalo). I do not recall the NAACP ever approaching me to offer assistance. The NCAA made this possible for me, but not the NAACP. A bunch of social whores they are.

Sounds as if some of the more smarter blacks in charlotte are not backing the NAACP in their stupid statements on t.v. The speaker of the NAACP of charlotte is really helping the problem by teaching the kids to protest to get what they think they deserve. Not really the brightest bulb in the box is he.

Is Charlotte going to realize giving in is not the way. I am glad they went to school the ones that did.
But the children at the protest is learning nothing but being racist themselves and violence.
They , the NAACP are the ones being racist. Not Charlotte.

This is why they can not get anywhere after all these years. The so-called leaders in the community are not very good leaders. They hurt more than help.

If you depend on others for your own personal gain, then expect to fail. Individuals get some where when they are willing to put in the efforts. The groups moves ahead if they are aligned with the same conceptual framework. No other races have a 'leader', why should we have a 'leader', other than a senator, congressman, etc...?

Yes, I meant more of a personality trait.
