The politics of symbolism 50 years after the Civil Rights era makes for strange "holiday" pairings. Like Robert E. Lee, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was also born in January. Three states — Alabama and Arkansas and Mississippi —celebrate both Lee and King on the same day.


Thats interesting.



However, if I dont get a day off I really dont give every single little holiday a thought.

Columbus day - a day commemorating a shithead who enslaved and raped indigenous people -  yay USA - they can tear down his statues too.

I am asking you because you are the one responded and agreed with her and you are the one that is suppose to be reasonable.

I responded to her first sentence! I told someone yesterday that I thought about putting pot-stirrer as my CM nickname, as a matter of fact.

And I am reasonable.
