UH Daily Cougar Op Editor James Davis 'Addresses MLK Day Decline' (Blames you for not being Black on MLK Day; does not address who is really to blame)
Former Editor in Chief Matt Dulin took the blame at the time, but like most liberals do when they screw up, he stayed in office and continued to remain ineffective for the rest of his term in office.
Today in his piece to bring more awareness to MLK Day, Davis appeases the NAACP-UH, a group he deeply offended when he OK'd the evacuee cartoon back in September.
In his tripe today "Holiday more than just time off," Davis asks the question "how much do Americans consider the actual substance of the holiday over the benefits it affords them?"
"The inception of Martin Luther King Jr. Day in 1986 certainly stood as a bold recognition of the civil rights movement," but has since been slowly destroyed by Rev. Jesse Jackson by his "higher than God" attitude because he was King's successor.
But who does James Davis blame, well let us "look no further than our friend," Christopher Columbus, who "since 1971, th[e] second Monday of every October has dignified the legacy of [the man] who can, at best, be described as a confused navigator and at worst a purveyor of genocide." When can be thankful that Davis didn't berate President's Day, or better yet Christmas or Thanksgiving.
Davis opines "there has been opposition to the [Columbus Day] holiday since its inception," and asks "Why is this?" But of course James Davis fails to mention that Martin Luther King Day was not celebrated in Arizona until 1992 when voters approved the holiday to avoid a tourist boycott, and it was not until 1999 when liberal New Hampshire changed the name of Civil Rights Day to Martin Luther King, Jr.
Davis looks at MLK Day as a day when we share "real estate in your day planner with good ol' Chris" [Columbus], while he continues to doubt the validity of Columbus Day. His argument that Labor Day should be reserved to honor the victims of the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire does not hold water and is better suited for remembrance during National Fire Prevention Week.
