I was still in school before MLK day was a no school holiday. During that time we had a guy that hung out with us that was mixed. All 4 years of HS he would go half days on MLK day. He’d be there that morning and gone at lunch. I know, csb, but it was always funny to us.

Same here. The black kids used to be able to skip MLK day without penalty

Man, those were the good old days. No cell phones, no internet. Call blocking meant leaving the landline phone out of the cradle. You could leave the house at 8am to go hang out with whatever friend you could find walking around town, and parents' only rule was "be home by dinner". Riding on the back pegs of your friend's BMX bike to get across town quicker just to drop the bike off at his house and wander aimlessly for hours.

I wouldn't even want to be a kid now. When my kids were growing up and I was telling them stories about how life used to be, I'd see envy in their eyes and I'd actually feel sorry for them. Social media and technology have made a huge world way too small and secular.

In some states it's still Robert E Lee's birthday(I think it is at least). I'm sure that plays well in today's climate!

I think Alabama and Mississippi still recognize it (for now).

As a test/trap or because he didn't know?

re: Just had a young AA male ask me
A couple of weeks ago at the grocery store, I had one ask me which kind of butter he should get for his Mom. He looked to be about 20. I asked him what she was going to do with it, and he showed me some chicken wings that he had, So I told him he should probably get the salted butter. He just stood there looking at all the butter, and that's when I realized that he couldn't read, so I pointed it out to him, he grabbed it and walked away real fast. Sad.
