Martin Luther King, Jr.

Some say that African American Month was given in February because it’s the shortest month.  Well, that’s not really so.. I think the real original reason was because February is the month of Abraham Lincoln’s Birthday.

I could be wrong.  But really, I pray that our species’ prejudice isn’t so deep that we’d do that sort of thing.

Then again, I just have to look around the world to see man’s inhumanity to man resplendent on the pages of history, let alone what’s still going on in many countries around the world.

Could it still be going on to such an extent in our own country? I pray not.

Some people think that all prejudice is gone in America. They’ll say things like “We elected an African American President”….although some think he’s not really American. I don’t care to get involved in that
 argument.  I don’t think election results mean we’re through the woods on our own version of apartheid.

To the contrary, we need to really make a fervent effort to eradicate prejudice everywhere.  At the same time, we can’t allow Political Correctness to go overboard.  Seriously, folks.

So for today, Fifty Five Is The New Pride and Prejudice….
