YOU may observe it, I do not. so stop telling the whole town to do it. no one cares...
...we ARE voiceless and second class, the only people who see what we say are the people that read our comments in this forum, that's it...we are barely heard locally, let alone globally meh, not in this lifetime, not even if you could buy your own television station. They would stifle you.

i am not racist but i would not ever believe what a black man or woman told me, it is my belief that ThEy are the first to bring up racism in ANY given incident. in my opinion they are racist and I don't trust them. I have a right to not trust, anyone i choose. i didn't say I DoN'T like blacks, i jus' don't trust them, i like obama, but i certainly don't TrUsT him!

beloved community? Ha! you'd make me laugh if it weren't such a pathetic and sad statement.

When did Vermont schools start celebrating this holiday? We never had this day off in the early 1980's.

I completely agree with GMB. MLK day is a ridiculous holiday. It should be re-named James Earl Ray day. That is what I call it.

Marty was a racist whose ONLY interest was promoting the welfare of blacks. Negros are the first to cry racist all the time. It is reverse-discrimination. One of the reasons I live in Vermont is because of the very low percentage of black people. If you are saying "equality now", try living near black people, then you will change your mind. Most of them are scum of the earth and only look for government handouts. These are the facts. Research the statistics of incarcerated people, people on welfare, etc. And look at Haiti and New Orleans. Katrina helped clean up that town.

Yeah, you figure? The meeting is cancelled this week due to snow.
