RIP: Coretta Scott King
Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and the speaker is, of course, allowed to say or think what he will. But I find it upsetting that he has chosen this time to voice his opinions. He has chosen this moment to make statements about the War in Iraq. He has chosen to use the time allotted to him to remember a great civil rights leader in order to make an irrelevent statement. This comes in the wake of Mayor Nagin and Hillary Clinton making racially charged statements pandering to blacks on MLK Jr. Day. I find this trend upsetting. I hope everyone remembers Mrs. King, for what she did...not for what Joe Lawry said.
