King No; Mugabe Yes

The mayor of south Florida’s Broward County, who happens to be Hispanic, was asked months ago to be the grand marshal of the town’s MLK Day parade. Alas for her, she stated publicly last week that a black local official, the elections commissioner, should resign because of her incompetence on the job. Saying King wouldn’t approve, the parade committee disinvited the Hispanic woman. What a crock. Did King really stand for the right for black public officials not to have to hear criticism for the work they do? I do believe these jerks really revere not King, but Robert Mugabe. What a pack of racists.
