Can`t honor King unless you take a day off?

Just drive on one of his `required` MLK drives..they`re in every city. Only non-president, non-US General to have that.

"the last time monday fell on the 19th was in 2004. pretty old."

or last year?

Indeed, it took about one second to open the calendar on my computer, to look at 2009, and see that yes, January 19, 2009, was a Monday.

LOLOLOL! Best first post evah!
But probably this is a year or more old, as are most things at IAB. Should we change the name to TIO? (This Is Old?)
It was 20+ whites and 1 latino who were not given promotions. No blacks were promoted over them because none "made the grade" despite a re-testing. That was the point of the lawsuit: they wanted a 3rd test to get some blacks promoted despite many other currently qualified candidates.

Nid, youre right. I cant stand right screamers because most of them wont accept tolerance for any type of majority, and it bothers me. The other key thing was being corrected on a word that I quoted. I overreacted and probably fel right into some sort of baited trap. Personally, i think it was a bear trap baited with bratwurst, I usually get caught that way

You can`t change people, they need to change themselves. I`m still struggling with this one myself.

fishqul: look up the damned article. it was reported as reverse discrimination hence the drating quotation marks around it when i first used it. it was discrimination in the work place if you want to get technical about it. One more time so we are all clear on this: IT WAS THE WORD USED IN THE DAMNED ARTICLE AND SINCE IT`S TECHNICALLY NOT A REAL WORD, AND HAS NO LEGAL BEARING, I USED QUOTES AROUND THE dratING THING. Good god fish, you want to talk about ignorant people, but you probably failed to read what i originally wrote and the reply i made to txp.

Txp, if you look up the case, it was listed as reverse discrimination because it was a majority race against a minority race.
auburnjunky: honestly its really not considered racist. unless you get a really good lawyer and have a judge that isnt afraid of public backlash, there will be know way to win. there is a law passed down from god knows how long ago that essentially states that the majority can discriminate against the minority, but the minority cannot be charged with discrimination against the majority. for that fd case, since the fire dept was headed by white people, it counted as work place discrimination, not racism technically, though it got documented and reported as reverse discrimination.

So if a black person calls me honkey or cracker, he`s not being racist?

What about if I wanna work at "Mamma Jean`s Soul Food Kitchen" in Compton, but they don`t hire me `cause I`m white. Is that racist?

lukas, its presidents day. and aside from a court case a year ago, its impossible for there to be any type of racism against white people. the only example in recent history came from a fire dept. where 4 black people got promoted despite doing worse on the test than 4 white people, and the fire house feared discrimination lawsuits, so they promoted the 4 black people. its one of the rare instances of "reverse discrimination" thats out there.

I think the "racism" is that picture is that there are people working MLK day... Although quite honestly I don`t see how that`s racist. People have to work, the country can`t just stop. Besides, if working on MLK day is racist, then working on Abraham Lincoln day (does that exist? My point point is still valid) is racist against white people.

hmmm....race card is too liberally applied. namely, by liberals. Im white, middle class, christian therefore i must be racist and intolerant of all other religions. I am a bigot. Also, i may or may not agree with my presidents policies, though by disagreeing i am racist. I may not agree with everything that other races have done, I am a racist. I cant stand al sharpton or jesse jackson, therefore im racist. I hate rap, therefore I am racist.
(not really racist, just stating things the mass media and other people want the U.S. to believe makes them racist.)

I think it`s funny that all the people pissing about how racism should be over and that we are all equal, are the first people who would bitch and moan and ask for bans when someone makes a racist joke, even if it`s funny as hell.

What`s so racist about this? Gagh, anything with a black person, and it`s racist... They`re closed for Martin Luther King day, and that`s when they`re choosing to have a new carpet fitted. That`s it, no? What`s the problem.

And Maddog, I completely agree with you, that`s another thing that really annoys me. If you`re born in America, you`re American. It doesn`t matter where you`re ancestors are from, if that was true, then technically we`re all African.

That`s a very cool clip "The_Maddog".
--------------------------------------------------

Well he`s right Pat. A man is a man..the colour of his skin is only relevant if you make it relevant. We are all equal (or we should be) and we should be progressing past historys trangressions. We in the UK dont have "african - englishman" or "asian-englishman" etc. You are either english/british or you are not, so I really dont understand why Americans choose/allow themselves to be segragated in such a manner.
I`m not saying we dont have racism in the UK (of course we do) but I really dont get the mentality you;ve got going over there. I just dont get why you have to have African-american, Asian american, Latino americans etc.

It;s bloody stupid. Shouldnt an American just be an American?

That`s a bit of a stretch. Though MLK did great things, I don`t understand the need for a holiday. (or any holiday for that matter, they`re all pointless).

You might cry racism if it were reversed, if it said the carpet installaion in the larger font on top, and MLK on the bottom in the lower font. But here, no.

i understand where the supposed racism is. instead of just being closed for MLK day, it seems like they are closing to do carpet and using MLK as an excuse to do so. but, its not racist.
