Well you know... That great man gave his life so you could become an unappreciated wage-slave just like the rest of us whities!

Seriously though, it sucks that you're the only one... Have fun with it though.. Photoshop you and the King himself and put it around the office for when they get back!

He didnt "give his life" MLK was assassinated by the American government. He didnt die for us. He was murdered so your people didnt have to hear him anymore.

While I do agree with you, I do want to add that some white people were essentially slaves too. They would come over as indentured servants and went into debt so bad that they couldn’t leave. They were treated like slaves. Also, women have been oppressed for thousands of years. While they were treated better than those in slavery, they had the same amount of rights (which is none).

Indentured servitude only lasted for a few years though while a slave was a slave for the rest of their life. So while yes a white person worked without pay, they did get land and other benefits sometimes after working for someone for 5-7 years. Also we started moving away from indentured servitude after Bacon's rebellion and started moving towards a slave system. So it is hardly comparable to compare indentured servitude to slavery.

Depending on the job you have you might have just gotten the short straw since people requested off that day. But if no one else was there you should have had the day off. But if your going to get time and a half ( if this is a holiday where you can get it). Then is not so so bad and if your alone then you might be able to get a lot more work done.
But I would also talk with your HR dept.

Personally, I'm more worried about future generations who'll look back on their ancestors and how they were butthurt, offended, miffed, displeased and had their jimmies rustled after taking humorous comments on the internet way too seriously, and the legacy of pain, indignity and general embarrassment that will leave.

White americans have no frame of reference of what it feels like to have to see documentarties and photos and hear accounts of how your forefathers were oppressed, how that shit gets you in the pit of your stomach. If you did, maybe you would realise that there are some things you just don't joke about. Tell you what: Here is a link to the church burning scene in "The Patriot". Watch it and decide what you would do to anyone who joked about that. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EtTljtBxtd0

That is true. The large Irish population in the US is also the result of Irish slaves sent there by the english so yeah, maybe my comment about white people not having been oppressed is wrong. I do think though that the guy who made that offensive comment has no idea of what that feels like and I think he should be a bit more sensitive.
