AT Roundup time The New Neo asks: Today is Martin Luther King Day, and one question I’ve had is the one posed in this NY Post editorial: what would he think of America today?
To which I responded, “What would Martin Luther King think of today’s race relations? Don’t know, but I do know I don’t really think of MLK anymore when I think about race relations. MLK has become irrelevant.”
I really think that “irrelevant” is kind of soft but I’m trying to maintain a soupcon of respect for King and his work. All that I can say today is, “Well, he had nice ideals.”
