Cesar Chavez Day is a big deal in my town. Being a college town, its a huge party day.
The news interviewed a pretty 21ish white girl on the street, and this is what she said;
"I think they give us Cesar Chavez Day because they don't give us Presidents Day. Because Cesar Chavez did all that for the immigrants rights, I equate him to Martin Luther King and what he did for slavery, but Chavez did that for Mexican Americans."

Well,she cleared that right up. Also fuck the news for airing that nitwit.

Odd, I'd have thought that 'what he did for slavery' would apply more to Lincoln (whose birthday celebration they apparently don't get off) than either of those Johnnie-come-lately folks she mentioned, both born decades after slavery had been abolished. Who knew? Roll Eyes

Wish that were true. Commies everywhere, wherever they are, worship that guy.

In Pocatello, Idaho, the home of Idaho State University and the liberal hotbed of the state, just a couple of years back the commie pin-heads re-named the N-S street that runs through the ISU campus to "Ceasar Chavez Avenue".

And it doesn't surprise me that a female college student would conflate MLK with slavery. The kids have no sense of history whatsoever -- they no longer study history in grade school or high school. Things like slavery and people like MLK are just random items scattered over a cloudy past, no specific sequence and no cause-and-effect involved so far as they can discern. If you want your kid to learn history you better be prepared to teach him/her yourself.


Thanks,

Sap

Ah, so it it was MLK who freed the slaves. Good to know.

(1860s... 1960s... Same difference, right?)

Ah, yes, I remember it well: MLK and Harriet Tubman jumping from ice floe to ice floe across the Alabama River at Selma with Sheriff Clark and the troopers’ dogs snapping at their heels. And of course Mr. King wrote the Emancipation Proclamation for Lincoln who was just an old white Republican male who would have never done something like that on his own.

Well, actually, he used to come up here to a small N.W. Ohio town to rile up or fire up the migrant field workers there to try and push for more and more and more, until they were replaced by machines and then there was no longer any reason to come back.

I dunno about elsewhere, but here, on Friday, the Port of Tacoma was closed for Cesar Chavez Day. It was actually pretty dang awesome, absolutely nothing happened, I was actually sort of bored at work, probably could have spent the rest of my shift playing video games.

Of course tomorrow, it'll probably be crazy as everyone will be trying to play catchup and I'll be running back and forth logging in trucks and checking empties.

Actually, I'm going with the idea he was a coffee bean picker. He was Juan Valdez's partner. You see him in many of the coffee commercials next to Juan. And you thought that was Juan's ass.

Long ago, there was a holster makers advertisement. It was captioned "Bianchi and his ass". Then down below a note, "Bianchi is the one on the right".

I weep for the future of this country. Unfortunately, I'll still be around when TOTAL stupidity reigns. Right now I can just shake my head and deal with it, but in 20+ years, not so much. Mass ignorance will be the mantra of the day and zippy's dream will be reality.....America will have been transformed.

"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil... Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so their roots will decay and their flowers blow away like dust; for they have rejected the law of the Lord Almighty and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel." - Isaiah 5:20,24
