MLK

Residents of Tuscon Arizona recently voted against celebrating Martin Luther King Day as a holiday. Now if you don’t like black people, that’s one thing, but what I can’t understand is why people in a hot-ass desert town like Tucson, Arizona wouldn’t want a day off work. It’s not like you have to do something black on that day. You don’t have to ready Ebony magazine, you don’t have to watch BET, all you have to do is not work.

Now if this was an Elvis holiday, they’d take that off. Now, everybody doesn’t get Martin Luther King’s birthday off, even the states that celebrate, some people still have to work. Now one group that never have to work are prisoners. Criminals. Every ciminal in every jail get’s the day off work, which means even James Earl Rey, the man who killed Martin Luther King get’s the day off. He’s so crazy, he’s probably walking around prison saying, “Everybody get’s the day off today and nobody even bothered to thank me. ”

Now what Arizona needs to do is give Dr. King somebody else’s holiday. There are so many holidays we celebrate every year that mean nothing. Like Columbus Day. Nobody celebrates Columbus Day, nobody puts three ships in their front yard. First of all, Columbus discovered the West Indies. Second of all, the land he discovered had occupants on it. That’s like discovering someone’s back yard. All Columbus did was discover a West Indian back yard. So Arizona, get your act together and hail the King! Thank you very much.
