White privilege, Alternatives to the military. Not sure what this has to do with celebrating diversity or honoring Dr. King. It would nice if the peace nicks dealt with real world issue, such as the exponentially growing gang problem, which obviously prey on lower income minorities.

Reverend Dr. King was strongly against war and military aggression. Please read his brilliant speech:
Here are 2 relevant quotes from the speech:
"As I have walked among the desperate, rejected, and angry young men, I have told them that Molotov cocktails and rifles would not solve their problems. I have tried to offer them my deepest compassion while maintaining my conviction that social change comes most meaningfully through nonviolent action."
"We were taking the black young men who had been crippled by our society and sending them 8,000 miles away to guarantee liberties in Southeast Asia which they had not found in southwest Georgia and East Harlem. And so we have been repeatedly faced with the cruel irony of watching Negro and white boys on TV screens as they kill and die together for a nation that has been unable to seat them together in the same schools. And so we watch them in brutal solidarity burning the huts of a poor village, but we realize that they would hardly live on the same block in Chicago. I could not be silent in the face of such cruel manipulation of the poor."
