Ok, the racists are peeking out from behind their masks. For those of us who remember the days before the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and who knew segregated schools and lunch counters and other affronts to human dignity, there is ample reason to celebrate the contribution Martin Luther King Jr. made to this country, and the courage he displayed in doing so, and the life he sacrificed.
And btw, George Washington was a Founding Father, and he is recognized with a holiday. And all the Founders are recognized on the 4th of July.

Ad added expense for the city. If you want the flags out, perhaps you should volunteer to pick them up. set them out, pick them up again and get them stored away for the next momentous occasion.
