I cannot believe how racist people still are in America. Please don't respond to the ignorant comments. They have nothing better to do but continue to perpetuate hate. Sometimes I am so ashamed of my race...and by the way, I am white.

SUPRISED & REGGIE ,
Just because some of / most of us white americans feel that many white men did things for our country that was just as important if not more important than MLK dosnt make us racist ..
OH and by the way .. There are many blacks that are racist NOT just us white Americans ..

HERE IS SOMETHING I HAVE TO SAY TO EVERYONE WHO IS TYPING "IDIOTIC REMARKS" LIKE THE ONE DISPLAYED BELOW.
6 MILLION PEOPLE (US CITIZENS)AROUND THE WORLD...PETITIONED THE GOVERNMENT TO MAKE MLK A NATIONAL HOLIDAY. THOSE ARE PEOPLE FROM THE SOUTH, NORTH, ALL STATUS AND CLASSES, AND ALL RACES AND AGES...
THE REASON WE ARE STILL DIVIDED IS BECAUSE WE ALL AS INDIVIDUALS CHOOSE TO STAY THAT WAY, WE RAISE ARE CHILDREN THAT WAY, AND THEY RAISE THEIR CHILDREN THAT WAY... LET ME GUESS FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO "DON'T CARE ABOUT MLK DAY" ALSO, DON'T SUPPORT A WOMAN PRESIDENT, OR EVEN AN AFRICAN AMERICAN ONE...WHEN BOTH CANDIDATES ARE WELL QUALIFIED TO DO THE JOB..
CHANGE IS A CHOICE, BUT IT IS REQUIRED IN ORDER TO UNDERSTAND... I MAY NEVER KNOW WHAT IT IS LIKE TO BE A WAR VET, OR TO LIVE IN THE 60'S BUT WHAT I DO KNOW IS THAT MARTIN LUTHER KING OPENED THE DOOR FOR ALL CIVIL RIGHTS ORGANIZATIONS TO OCCUR..
CIVIL RIGHTS ORGANINZATIONS HAVE HELPED MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ALL THE WAY FROM UNBORN CHILDREN TO VIETNAM VETS... I AM SURE THAT EVERYONE OF US HAS TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF THIS...
PLEASE, IT IS OF VITAL IMPORTANCE THE IGNORANCE IS CUT OFF... AND BY THE WAY, THE PRESIDENT IS THE ONE WHO FUNDS THE STATE WITH MONEY FOR HISTORY BOOKS... HOW CAN THEY BE UPDATED WHEN THE BUDGET IS CUT?
Susan, and Jennifer Crystal Tina,
You are either to young to remember
A) the trouble he caused.
B) do not know any Veitnam Vets (White)
C) did not go to school in the 70's
D) you really belive the propaganda the schools have been teaching for the past 20 years.
First before you belive the school history know there is more to the story.
Next when you are bussed 40 miles from your home into a neighborhood that is all of a differant race then you and you are 6 yrs old and have now clue how to get home if you need to. Then you tell me how "great" a man he is.
When you talk to a vet as if you would really take the time. Ask him how it felt to not know if his foxhole buddy had his back b/c of MLK.
He split this country even more and gave the VC a wepon to use against us in the form of media.
I so not see the King family doing anything to help the whole human race. Just the homeless. Granted they need help. But really where does all the money go?

Let's not begin to forget this great man's lady, our beloved Queen, Coretta Scott. She carried out the legacy and made the dream a reality for many of us. Martin was a young man given a task inspired by God. Once Martin started the ball, just like Moses started a ball and Joshua carried it on. God used Coretta and many others to carry out his work. We must pray for the small minds and negative postings in this blog. Because saints, as you know, "No Weapon formed against us shall prosper..." Continue on dear Saints and celebrate this God-inspired steward!!
