The Watercooler : What do White people do on Martin Luther King Jr. Day?

What do White people do on Martin Luther King Jr. Day?

I feel like most just revel in our day off and don’t truly appreciate what the holiday means. Some awkward white people will put up some kind of message on Instagram basically saying “ Sorry black people we messed up” but that feels disingenuous.

I think white people should truly understand how important this man was to the landscape of the civil rights movement, and also realize he’s not the only figure who deserves a holiday.

You know what? That's fine. I'll take that apology.

I'm off today and it didn't snow like the meteorologist predicted. Ha ha.

More like, "Sorry, it's possible some of my ancestors messed up."

Calm down. This is only a message board.

Re: What do White people do on Martin Luther King Jr. Day?

id imagine the same thing black people do on mlk day.

Re: What do White people do on Martin Luther King Jr. Day?

Many years ago when I was in high school, before MLK became a recognized day, the black kids got the idea they would all just skip school the next time MLK's birthday or whatever came around. They made quite a bid deal of it, in fact. When that day actually came around, the whole group was at school that day, unaware when that day even was… it was hysterical.

Re: What do White people do on Martin Luther King Jr. Day?

You're black?

I just treat it like a day off. MLK was awesome, but like how do you celebrate the day? Virtue signal?

Re: What do White people do on Martin Luther King Jr. Day?

Everyday's a day off for you, you lazy, unemployed sack of adipose tissue. lol

Re: What do White people do on Martin Luther King Jr. Day?

Re: What do White people do on Martin Luther King Jr. Day?

I celebrate him for calling for equality amongst all men and women. Regardless of skin color or whatever other bullshit excuses for marginalizing others.
I also celebrate him for being a 2nd Amendment proponent.

Re: What do White people do on Martin Luther King Jr. Day?

Ill give him this. He really liked white women. Especially white prostitutes.

Just goes to show you he was not prejudice against white women.

Re: What do White people do on Martin Luther King Jr. Day?

There is that.

Re: What do White people do on Martin Luther King Jr. Day?

I went to work and put in my eight hours. It's just another day to me.

Warren Oates died for our sins.

Re: What do White people do on Martin Luther King Jr. Day?

We do what black people do the other 364 days a year—fuck all!

Re: What do White people do on Martin Luther King Jr. Day?

I put on black face and try to scare my neighbors by peeping in their windows after it gets dark out.

Re: What do White people do on Martin Luther King Jr. Day?

I do what I do on President's day. I occasionally check the mail box throughout the day and then I realize why there is no mail.

Fasten Your Seatbelts….
It's Going To Be A Bumpy Night!

Show the same lack of respect for other races as they do every other day as demonstrated in this thread.
