Martin Luther King Day

Friday I was in the coffee shop when a local man came in. He sat down and when the waitress came over to take his order he said the following, "Are you open Monday on Martin Luther King Day and, if so, are you serving coon coffee?"
Both then proceeded to laugh.

This story shows that we haven't moved that far from a time when this kind of insidious hatred got Doctor King killed for being an uppity negro. In fact, we haven't moved that far at all.
