“Time To Rethink Martin Luther King Day”–The 2017 Edition

Via Billy

One is a Christian gentleman, loyal to his country, who fought its government in the name of justice. The other is Martin Luther King. Editor Peter Brimelow writes: Very unusually, given’s suicidal Stakhanovite publishing pace, I’ve decided to keep reposting my 2015 essay on Martin Luther King Day until, as James Fulford observed in his introduction to our 2016 reposting, We Overcome. (But the hyperlinks are updated). Note that, while Robert E. Lee Day is fixed, Martin Luther King Day is set to be celebrated on the third Monday in January, and so fluctuates. Can we all get along and at least agree with Steve Sailer that
The dead of winter…after Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year, is the stupidest possible time to offer another holiday. To fix this, we should move Martin Luther King Day to the Friday before Labor Day to commemorate his “I Have a Dream” speech at the Lincoln Memorial on August 28, 1963 … and, to give Americans a summer-ending four-day weekend. (It`s not as if a lot of business gets done on that day anyway.)
