I don’t honor Martin Luther King Day at all. I find it racist to have a holiday for one man. I would honor this day if it had a different description, such as Civil Rights, or Civil Freedom Day. We used to have days honored specifically for our first President, George Washington, being raised in Illinois, I remember a state holiday for Abraham Lincoln. We took these days of honor away and changed it to Presidents Day. While MLK made a significant impact toward civil rights, he certainly was not alone. He is remembered because he strove for peaceful methods of change, in a time while others attempted the same change by violence, but he was not the only peaceful revolutionary to the civil rights movement.
