Default "Black" Holidays vs "White" Holidays

So I was listening to the radio today when I was out getting parts and I heard all this talk about MLK and the strides he made and the festivities that were going on around town and event the governor had things to say.

It struck me that I never hear of any festivities on Presidents Day. The governor has nothing to say and nobody gets the day off.

On Lincoln's birthday there is no chatter about the strides he made with the Emancipation Proclamation.

What about Washington's birthday, our first president?

(Note: Illinois still celebrates Lincoln's birthday as a holiday but for the rest of the nation it has been combined with Washington's birthday and called "Presidents Day").

Now I'm not saying that MLK is a "black" holiday. His visions applied to everyone, not just blacks.

Columbus day is still celebrated, so I suppose that is a "white" holiday, but I see it going away in the future because it is offensive to native americans.

What about JFK?

43 presidents in history and NONE of them get the recognition that MLK gets.

I'm not complaining, I'm just curious. I know that the white folk in history have done some terrible things, but isn't there at least ONE that we have a holiday for that gets this kind of attention? If not, perhaps we better take a closer look at the world and maybe ourselves as a people.

Discuss.

May sound wierd to some but its true. Does a holiday with a black man make you feels so insecure that you need your own white day?

And why see this as a black hoilday, why not just a hoilday?

Did Dr King say anything that was pro black while being anti white?

Its not like its Malcolm X day.

I don't recall JFK being there.

Playa Girón was cuban exiles funded by the US. He did handle the Cuban missile crisis the following year....

Anyway, that's not my point. JKF was just an example.

Please re-read what I wrote. It has nothing to do with "feeling special" or being insecure. It has everything to do with the white man being so fucked up that the holidays come and go and the only one where a white man gets this much attention is at Christmas.

when is white history month?

why is there a MLK boulevard in Grand Rapids, MI ? (to the best of my knowlege, he was never in GR) same with Rosa Parks circle?

yes, my fore-fathers did some rotten things. but if black people were given the chance to leave the greatest country and go back to thier homeland, would they?
no, they are americans (not afircan americans, unless im a dutch american)

that is my $.02, take it or leave it,

the only reason it would seem weird is because people have been fed this image that white pride means your a white supremacist racist nazi. i do not advocate rascim in any way and think people who oppress others for the color of their skin are bigots. if more people would have pride in who they are there would be less druggies, drunks, welfare abusers and sexual freaks.

Exactly thats the only reason I fly a confederate flag off the back of my truck yesterday today and probably tommarrow. Its bullshit. There should be school on black day. When I was in school they did NOTHING special for presidents day. BUt on black history month the teachers were DEMANDED to teach nothing but black history for the whole month. Bull shit. sorry I know im being kinda rude about it. Im not blaming any black people. Im blaming the school board and thats ugly mole bitch govenor. And Sol Good please dont take this ovensive. I dont mind learning about black history. But its a big deal when they dont even teach you about presidents on presidents day.
