They celebrated by voting (again) for a white supremacist for President.

i don't like "birthday" celebrations for dead people, feels wrong.

fine with "on what would have been his 92nd birthday, we reflect on the lasting legacy of dr. martin luther king jr."

i'm fine with memorials.

just don't like "yo! it's beethoven's 250th birthday today! PARTY! dude, is like, SO OLD!"

Why reference The Onion when it happened in real life in Iowa's neighbor?  https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/uw-b​ooklet-student-added/

Consider The Onion started in Madison, WI, I'm sure the connection between the two stories isn't a coincidence.

He was a hero. We could have really used him in these troubled times.

made sure that black americans have fewer resources and opportunities, so predominantly black neighborhoods are sh*t, and then named streets in those neighborhoods for the people who got killed trying to overcome systemic racism.

He was so larger than life, I always forget how young he was. If he hadn't been murdered, he could have very plausibly run for president in the 2000s.

Meanwhile, in Alabama and Mississippi, they'll be celebrating Robert E. Lee day on Monday.

Totally a coincidence.

I really liked him in Bad Boys, but all those Big Mama movies got old fast.

I find myself wondering, if he hadn't been killed, would the times be as bad as they are?  He was YOUNG yet, and had so much ahead of him.

This is true.  The more you read about him just makes you realize the greatness that is was.

Not all of us, just the delusional and overtly religious.  So like 60%

As much as I'd like to give Iowa credit for that (please we need good credit somewhere) the GOP had more to do with that by not supporting his reelection campaign than anything.  We're living in the weirdest timeline.
