Black history month

This February, in celebration of black history month, a school had fried chicken and watermelon on their menu.

Of course, this blatant racism caused outrage in the community and the menu was changed.

But, how it is any different when we sing African-American spirituals at church in the month of February?

Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream was that his children would be judged on the content of their character, not the color of their skin.

Is that what we are doing today?  Are we judging everyone on the content of their character, not the color of their skin?

I am.

I have often been sitting in a room with liberals friends who are noticing or even counting the number of black people in the room.  Um, why would anyone do that?  It is racist.  They proudly point to the varying degrees and shades of color in the room and loudly proclaim diversity.  Is that right or fair or just?

A reader was telling me about the television show, "Two Broke Girls."  In it, one character's last name is Black.  The second broke girl asks a black man if she had seen her friend.  Overcome with political correctness, fear and the blatant lunacy that accompanies it, she said, "Have you seen my friend, Max Bl-Bl-African-American?"

Lying is lying.  Period.  If we say that calling out lying is "racist" because of the race of the liar that is accepting a lower standard for one race.

Why would anyone want to do that?  Why are we doing that?  Did King get his dream or a nightmare?
