Milking MLK

Why is MLK's birthday a national holiday? Except for marching and praying and whining about his dreams I don't see that King has done anything significant for Americans--black or white.

This holiday is mostly a bit of Jim Crow condescension. King was a non-threatening figurehead and attraction for the mealy-mouthed white breast beaters who couldn't handle the real black heroes like Malcolm X and Mohammed Ali and Tommie Smith and John Carlos. If I can't use the library or the post office, let it be to honor some leaders who made more of an impact with their lives than with their death.
