MLK Day should be Civil Rights Day. There are hundreds of Red, Yellow, Black and White that have made great contributions to "liberty and justice for all". Our calendars no longer give recognition to our 1st and 16th presidents. They now are relegated to the ash-heap of history and we now have a generic holiday called "Presidents Day.

Likely we will be celebrating President Obama Day on the 3rd Monday of February.

But it's time we honor the achieving black Americans who have taken advantage of those rights, applied their skills, overcome obstacles, and achieved their piece of the American Dream. Though thankful for their freedom and opportunity, many now rail against the culture of victim-hood that sadly contributes to high black unemployment, black-on-black crime, and the explosion of fatherless families in black America.
