This is the most bogus holiday in America. April Fools Day has more validity. Stop perpetuating the fraud!

Come on folks!! Being a white person in the South, MLK was NOT one of my favorite people. However he did preach NON-violent ends to problems that plagued society during his lifetime. His successors are NOTHING at all like him and will never be. He would roll over in his grave if he only knew what his people are doing in this country.... They just don't get it!!!! Enough said! Peace!

MLK DAY? WHY DO WE NOT TAKE HIS NAME OFF THE HOLIDAY AND CALL IT CIVIL RIGHTS DAY?
AFTER ALL THERE WERE OTHER CIVIL RIGHTS ACTIVISTS AND LEADERS.
WHY SHOULD IT BE RESERVED FOR ONE MAN? IS THERE SOMETHING UNREASONABLE ABOUT THIS?
WHY SHOULD AMERICA CELEBRATE THIS BLACK SEPARATIST HOLIDAY?
IT SERVES TO DIVIDE PEOPLE NOT TO UNITE PEOPLE! I THINK THIS IS SOMETHING THAT NEEDS TO BE TALKED ABOUT! BRAIN WASHING WHITE PEOPLE. IF CAUCASIANS DON'T CELEBRATE MLK DAY THEY ARE CONSIDERED RACISTS! THE PEOPLE WHO THROW THOSE PHRASES AROUND ARE THE STONE HEARTED RACISTS OF THE WORST KIND.

He did nothing to deserve a holiday in his honor. He was just another excuse making black trying to blame all their problems on whitey.

School should be open, banks should be open, no one should get the day off, and all the unemployed drug dealing gang banging blacks should be required to stay home and keep their mouths shut.

Non violent social change was the lie of the century. king caused violence everywhere he went. The day he was killed violence broke out just at the news of his arrival. The history of the civil rights movement is a history of violence. The violence didn't begin with Rodney King it was decades before that in Los Angeles, Newark, Detroit, Washington, around the country and the deadly violence was instigated by the civil rights movement and a volatile press.

king was insignificant in the civil rights movement. Civil rights was begun a hundred years before by the Republican Party and civil rights was progressing long before king was born.
WW II saw millions of jobs open for minorities because whites were off fighting the war. Many blacks kept those jobs since 400,000 whites were killed during the war. President Truman authorized integration of the armed forces and President Eisenhower implemented full integration in the military and enforced integration in public schools.
The US Supreme Court accomplished far more than king ever did. All king ever accomplished was to get negative publicity in the press.
President Nixon signed affirmative action into law. Something king never accomplished.

Dr King would be appalled at the state of black behavior these days. They're given ample opportunity to succeed and waste it.

It is widely known that King was a womanizing adulterer. Under the order of U. S. Attorney General Bobby Kennedy, the FBI wired King’s offices, and hotel rooms from 1963 to 1968. These tapes notably records his transactions with communist agents, but also wild interracial sex orgies which included acts of perversion. King’s aids would use tax exempt money donated to his southern Christian Leadership conference to hire White prostitutes to perform sexual acts with him. King often would use two prostitute at the same time. These shocking tapes were ordered sealed for 50 years by U.S. Federal Judge John Smith Jr. on January 31, 1977. In other words we will not be able to learn all the gory details until the year 2027. some 90 congressmen, led by the late rep. Larry McDonald, urged Congress to find out what was on these tapes before they approved the disgraceful King Holiday Bill. A cowardly and spineless Congress voted 338 to 90 approving the King Holiday.

If the reverend was so non violent why was there so much broken glass and smoke where ever he marched?

That's true. Well it might have been the FBI, or one of about 10 other people/entities.

Either way, one thing is for sure: James Earl Ray had little or nothing to do with it.

I was going to point that out the other day, I just didn't feel like going into it. But yes, that is very true. Anybody who seriously thinks that Ray killed King by himself (if even at all), seriously needs to do some research on the subject. And ditto for the Oswald/Kennedy case. And many others I could name off...

I'm not, by any means, a "Conspiracy Theorist", but that doesn't mean, for one minute, I deny that major conspiracies do happen.

In fact I typically look down on them, because they "cry wolf" so much and then when something really does happen, people just think it's them again, LOL.

Like all that talk about Obama supposedly not born in the USA (I've seen the birth certificate, and besides, I think Hitlery Clinton and them would have found evidence of that, I would think...), or being a Muslim (SFW? WTF would that have to do with anyway, if he was a Muslim? So what?), and all that kind of crap! They just want to insult someone (like Obama in that case, who I don't like very much either, FWIW), so they start a hoax. That's very lame!

People like that are really pretty lame. But yes conspiracies do happen.
