I can really see how this has a damn thing to do with BISD. We don't have enough black people in the whole city to fill even one of the elementary schools.

Dr. King did not fight just for blacks - he is internationally recognized for his efforts to bring equality and justice to everyone including mexican americans. The Whites Only signs also applied to Latino Americans.

My father was asked to leave a restaurant in Houston in 1947 because he wife, my mother, was dark skinned.

Dr. King faught for everyone - the fact you see him as black proves my point - people who know his work know he was anything but black

his enter mantra was to judge everyone by one standard and one standard only - by the content of their character - what could be more race or gender neutral?

To the person who posted at 11:26 Here's a a little tidbit of information for you: There is a whole world wide universe out here, beyond the scope of your nucleus in Brownsville. And guess what there are African Americans, Hispancis, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, American-Indians, Caucasians, and so on, in this Universe.

As Bobby WC points out, Dr. King was about equality. And that means equality for the shallow, narrow minded people that think that because their town is comprised of 99% Hispanics that they don't need to expand their thought process to include any other race beyond Hispanics. I dare you to venture out of your nucleus in Brownsville and hopefully when you do, you will not be exposed to true racism based on your ethnicity, your religion, your sex, the color of your skin, etc. You might just figure out exactly what Dr. King stood for then and what he stands for today, including African Americans, Hispanics, Caucasians.

Your post only shows how narrow minded you are, and why you probably haven't exerted any energy to expand your horizons beyond Brownsville Texas.
