"King Is The First Person Of Color To Have A Monument Erected In His
Honor"? Oh so we have forgotten the Vietnam veterans already??? All
"White People" have NO PIGMENTATION at all??? I am offended as a
Euro-American to be labeled as a person without "COLOR"?!?!?!?!?!?! I
have color!!! I have blue eyes, a tanned skin, A "WHITE" scar on my
hip, which means the rest of me is DARKER THAN WHITE! As a matter of fact as
Afro Americans used to resent being labeled "Colored People" I resent
being labeled a person without color! I have grey hair!!! Blue eyes, and grey
hair and a white scar definately are FULL representations that I am a person of
COLOR! Because if I have a "WHITE SCAR" then the skin surrounding the
scar can't be white, it must be "OTHER" and if it is "Other"
I am definatley not "WHITE" I am a EURO-American!!! Please address
"White People" as such, or you can address me as a "Mormon",
but please don't call me a WHITE Person anymore!!!I for one am
grateful for the monument of "King", I think it is well overdue!!! May
we represent his ideals well!
Dr. King took a stand when few others dared. He is a great American.How does America honor a great American? How about a $100,000,000 monument
made from Chinese granite - designed and carved a Chinese artist! American
granite and American black artists are not good enough, apparently, to honor a
great black American.So, the next time those of you who believe in
and want to live Dr. King's dream are complaining about poverty and a lack of
opportunity because jobs are being sent overseas...remember the $100,000,000 Dr.
King monument outsourced to China. The rumbling in Virginia today
was not an earthquake...it was Dr. King rolling over in his grave.
