The Dream Went Down to Georgia


Globalistical warmening has left too much snow in Georgia. So much that the kids haven’t been able to get to school. They’ve lost nine class days in some districts.

School officials suggested turning MLK Day into a school day, to make up for lost learning time. The race pimps were having none of that:

The superintendents from the districts said they had little choice to start making up for nine days missed because of the foul winter weather this school year. But civil rights leaders said the decision was an insult to King and shows disrespect for the holiday in his name.

"It's an opportunity for people, black and white, to reflect on what King's dream meant for blacks and whites," said Georgia State Conference NAACP President Edward DuBose. "And it's humiliating to hear that school districts want to take a snow day rather than to honor Dr. King's legacy."

But who appointed them the arbiters of MLK’s legacy? There is another view:

I have read enough of his works to feel comfortable in saying that Dr King, a learned man, would have preferred that school children attend school on his national holiday IF it was necessary to make up for the 5 days that the schools in many parts of Georgia have been closed due to a massive ice storm.

For a man who was living during a time where Black kids were kept OUT OF SCHOOL in order to harvest cotton and other crops - it seems perverted for those who claim to be his protectors today to be aggrieved that children will be kept out of school for a 6th straight day in a sign of respect for King.

The writer then questions the character of those who put respect ahead of knowledge:

With 5 full days in which schools in metro-Atlanta have been closed - I am made to wonder what the average parent demanded that their children do while they were nestled at home?

Was there a single "Civil Rights History" book or web site opened during this week, as instructed by those seeking to make their children more aware of their past?

With the facts of known performance problems at schools that are named after historical greats… 

  • King
  • Douglass
  • Bethune
  • Mays
  • Washington
  • Carver

all vacillating around the bar of "Adequate Yearly Progress" - it seems that certain enforcement actions as expressed by the community organizers appear to be quite empty - abstracted from the present challenges that face us.
