Robert E. Lee/Martin Luther King Day? The State of Alabama says so!

The Civil War ended in in 1865 with the surrender of the South by Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Someone needs to tell the State of Alabama about this.

Martin Luther King Day was officially declared a national holiday by President Ronald Reagan in 1983. Someone needs to tell the State of Alabama about this.

Incredibly, all 50 states did not observe this until 2000. Someone needs to tell the State of Alabama about this.

The legislators in Alabama created the (Notice who gets top billing.) Robert E. Lee/Martin Luther King Day which exists to this day. 365 days in a year, and Alabama insists on this divisive and dishonorable behavior. Nothing can be honestly stated in defense of this divisive political posturing based in racism. Public education regarding this is a necessity, public education minus political spin and racial divisiveness. Someone needs to tell the State of Alabama about this.

Leada Gore tells the State of Alabama about this in her excellent article HERE.

Needless to say, I respect Robert E. Lee, his ability and his beliefs. As a matter of fact, I respect those who lost their lives on both sides of America’s Civil War. I also deeply sympathize with all of the families, those who survived the Civil War and its aftermath; they suffered true hardships.

Honoring those from our past is part of our heritage. Racism, especially divisive politicized racism, gives neither Lee nor King the respect due them. Someone needs to tell the State of Alabama about this.
