Today is 01-19-2015.

Robert E Lee was born on 01-19-1807.

Martin Luther King was born on 01-15-1929.

We should have celebrated MLK's birthday last Thursday.

Why should we give up? It's part of our historical heritage. Get a grip, Barry (on history).

Got no problem w/ this, He was a person of historical significance to the south like it or not. It's people like you who are constantly looking for ways to beat down anybody who doesn't agree with your own personal views. I just don't understand why you choose to live in Texas, go west or north Barry, you'll be less aggravted & believe it or not you won't be missed here.

⌖ Today, January 19th, is Confederate Heroes Day in Texas. Confederate Heroes Day was established in Texas in 1973 and was formerly known as Robert E. Lee's birthday which was officially approved in 1931. Martin Luther King day was first observed in 1986 after being approved in 1983.

You are correct..you cannot celebrate anything ethnically white (Anglo) in the United States.

Virginia had a great idea. They have Lee-Jackson day on the Friday before MLK day, so they get a 4 day weekend. I think we should follow suit!

Why shouldn't we celebrate the life of Robert E Lee who lead the fight for the right to enslave his fellow man.
