MLK Hay Day

2 parades. (Guthrie and OKC)
Lunch and Dinner.
Friends and Family.
Lots of Walking.
Being Cold.

=
_______________
The best holiday I've had and understood in the same day.




PS. White people....you need to care about major figures in history and support them and the days that honor them even when they're not white. So go to a parade or SOMETHING and don't sit in your car with the windows rolled up. Stand alongside and/or walk with someone different than you and talk with them. Share the experience. Share Life. Love each other.

Ashley took my comment so I will just say agreed.

umm... i don't get out and walk in the butt freezing cold for white figures either, so I don't fill bad. Also I have read most all of mlk's stuff. Which I imagine most those white, black, and brown marchers haven't.

You are a freaking lunatic. The reason why racism is still an issue is because we keep celebrating this crap.

Why does this celebration have to be because he is black? It should be centered on what he did, not just because he was black. If we want to celebrate "color" days, then lets start celebrating Washington's birthday because he was a great "white leader". Last time I checked, white was a color. So I guess you and I are "colored" people. I suppose you don't learn that at Screwball Nazarene University.

In reference to your other comments - wow. seriously?

Amanda said...

she's not saying to go to it b/c he's black. she was just saying to go to the parade EVEN when they are not white. plus, mlk day is about what he did anyway, not what race he is.

To the Anonymous poster:

I think it is pretty cowardly to post your harsh comments as "anonymous." If you feel strongly enough to post such harsh words, you should at least have the guts to put your name to it.

yeah, wow. Jeff: I like your response because it definitely defines you as someone who is not racist... just lazy. And I didn't know people like "Anonymous" owned computers.. ?? wow. And can type. Interesting. That's like saying the Holocaust Memorial contributes to Anti-semitism. Dumbass.

Also, Cara - did OKC1st have a decent showing at the parade?

liked it!

i read the anonymous post, and it is so wrong that jeff's doesn't bother me anymore. you never said that the celebration was because MLK was black. i was dissapointed when anonymous admitted he/she was white. i feel so misrepresented

i vow never to make an anonymous statement because im afraid of what i said.
