You know, it seems like Martin Luther King Day is the one day when white people feel it's safe to talk about race. Or maybe some feel like it's their civic duty. For some reason, this has begun to strike me as lip service frankly. Particularly in the wake of Katrina, Bush's desperate old trick of surrounding himself with disadvantaged Negro, ahem African-American children is too insulting to watch. MLK and CSK are no doubt twitching in their graves.
I think Dr. King would be disappointed that his death left a gaping hole in American society for a true African-American leader who could transcend racial and socio-economic boundaries to become truly one of the greatest Americans ever.
