Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
This is why I was careful not to eat some my favorite foods on Martin Luther King Day: I didn’t want to offend anybody.
I intentionally skipped Quaker Instant Grits for breakfast, passed up Kentucky Fried Chicken with fried okra and orange pop for lunch, and made certain to avoid Famous Dave’s Bar-B-Q Ribs and corn bread for dinner.
Fifty years of “civil rights” has transformed American into a place where menu choices made to honor Dr. King’s name are twisted into proof of hatred of his memory. I wonder if this is the kind of tolerant, diverse, color-blind society he was hoping for when he said “I have a dream?”
in the future, it will be considered “racist” to point out that Michael Jordan could dunk.
