Seriously, don’t. Please, pease don’t. I am appalled and embarrassed by you know who’s remarks. But surprised, not really. How many times does he need to say and/or do something racist for us to realize that he is racist? I am, however, deeply disappointed in the response from GOP leaders and Republicans as a whole. Their refusal to condemn his remarks is a slap in the face to MLK and to minorities of which I am one.
Today we celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. A man who did so much to advance the civil rights movement, and I wonder what Dr. King would think if he was alive today. Would he be surprised that nearly 50 years after his assassination that there was still so much unrest and work to be done? I’m not sure if he would be surprised but probably a bit sad and still 100% committed to seeing equality.
