I'll be celebrating by working. I had almost forgot it was this Monday until being called a racist by the gas station cashier because I didn't remember what holiday was coming up.

i like mlk,i liked his thoughts,he was a freethinking man,he did not give a damn for emotional thoughts that most whites,or blacks had at the time. he simply gave his opinion! the division in the media has robbed this man of the great person he was by dividing us! have you listened to his sermons?

It's hard to look at who the man was when this holiday has been portraid as a black supremacist holiday where I live. I get to deal with random "black power" shouting on this day along with a sense of entitlement by black Americans that comes off as obnoxious. This will go on for weeks along with me being talked to as if I had owned slaves myself. In school, the black kids could take off for mlk without repercussion while the white students were told they couldn't. Being a graduate of '07, these events are fairly current. Maybe I'm just surrounded by ignorant black Americans that take this holiday the wrong way, but because of what I've been exposed to growing up I despise this holiday and everything that goes along with it.

i agree,and its a bummer that people would use and abuse his memory to take advantage,but i wouldnt let that influence your opinion of a GREAT man. he never preached supremacy only equality.
look in my life time i have been surrounded by ignorant people of every color. i grew up around mostly blacks,and alot of the people in my neighborhood saw themselves as victims of the police,the system,poverty...ect, never once pointing the finger at themselves. i moved to the "country" to get my children away from that environment. guess what happened? now i am around whites who think they are victims that think the police and the sytem is out to get them,and never pointing a finger back at themselves. my point is,people are not that different when it comes down to it,there is good and bad no matter what pie graph they are put in.

a troll is defined as someone that doesnt agree with you? i must have disagreed with you and you took it really hard? even personal? you must have a really small mind to be offended so badly and easily,perhaps topix isnt for you? backpeddle? i get the feeling that anyone that doesnt agree with you is a "piece of shit". your parents must have really spoiled you,because you take it hard when someone doesnt agree. QUIT BEING SUCH A PRINCESS! nobody cares what me or you think about a subject.....grow up!

If you really believed that no one cared what you thought on topix you wouldn't be on 90% of the posts. But considering the BS you have posted above, proves that you are a lying, backpeddling, patronizing, little bug! Your name alone is nothing but a way to bring attention to yourself. The fact that you would even open the topix post with the title such as this one proves that you are a troll. Congratulations to you supporting and encouraging comment on a subject such as "James Earl Ray Day"!!! The ignorant trash that originally posted is happy that he had a person like you comment in here, when no one with any "sauce" at all would have opened it to begin with. I saw your name on the home page and just had to see what ignorant comment was made. Thanks for amusing me today and showing me what a person you really are.

everyone is reachable,and can be taught a different prospective on a subject(just like this topic) did you notice that we had a conversation about mlk? we both shared our opinions. he explained why he didnt like the holiday,and then i explained why i did......ect. we may still disagree with each other,but we had an exchange of ideas with no name calling........thats how things work in the real world. i can tell from your temper tantrum on every topic i comment on,that you are used to getting your way without anyone questioning you, well thats not going to happen here. i bet your name starts with a "t".

Cracker, due to brief exchange of ideas we had I decided for once in my life to examine this MLK. I've spent most of the day researching and have found brilliant ideas that were blown out of proportion and context by my local black Americans.
I like the ideas that he had, so much to an extent that I acknowledged the holiday to a Walgreens employee asking what she was doing for it. To my disgust I was once again labeled a racist because that holiday "isn't ment for me".
With that being said, I no longer dispise MLK day, but rather the ignorance that surrounds me.
You've changed a perspective, thank you.
Now only if the ones around here could understand what they are celebrating so vigorously.

Great job, Cracker. MLK was also anti-war/anti-violence and pro-union, which is really what got him into trouble with the establishment during his time. He was in Memphis to support the striking sanitation workers when he was assassinated. But if you think MLK's legacy was only about segregation, you really missed the bigger picture.

You are extremely confused. MLK was always at odds with X and the Nation of Islam over the Black Power movement. King's goal was the equality of races, not the superiority of one over another. In fact, his final objective--the one that got him killed--was to fight poverty (Poor People's Campaign) by bringing the poor of all races together to fight poverty and end the Vietnam war. That's why most suspect that the government was likely involved in hiring and coordinating Ray for the assassination...to avoid the large scale protests that King's organization would have carried out in 1968 to bring about new laws to fight income inequality, poverty and Vietnam. The loss of MLK was a blow to all poor people, not just black poor people.
