Martin Luther King Jr. Disses America

Today was an historic day as the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial was unveiled to the public today at the National Mall in Washington D.C. . It is an awesome 30 foot granite statue of MLK Jr. showing his strength, and it’s based upon the “I have a dream” speech.

Perhaps the way I view the world is a bit skewed by prescription medication and high volumes of whiskey, but the first two things that came to my mind this morning when I saw the memorial was …

The Han Solo Memorial - "Laugh it up Fuzzball"

and …

And I'm the Kiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing ... of rock !!

The fact that both Star Wars and RUN DMC were two of my favorite forms of entertainment growing up, I think they totally compliment the memorial. Two no nonsense figures who kicked ass and made it through hardships and tribulations. One in a futuristic setting who flied spaceships and comes to realize the importance of being part of a group and helping for the common good, and another who overcame the streets of Hollis, Queens, NY and rose above to become “The Greatest Hip Hop Group of All Time”. So WTF am I trying to say here? I really have no idea, except, I’m glad MLK is dissin’ us, “Cause it’s like that, and that’s the way it is … HUHHHHHH !!”
