Great man who did great things. Holiday warranted? Not sure because there were other great people who did great things. Since I'm not a govt employee I don't get the day off but if I was a govt employee I definitely wouldn't refuse the day off.

I do think the "black factor" has something to do with it. My reasoning...

Who is the one person who has his baseball number retired by every team in the Majors. That guy was a great player and he broke down barriers and he was brave but I would say what Pat Tillman did was braver. Shouldn't Tillman have his number retired too?

Valid point I suppose but Pat Tillman is a reach a s ar as on field accomplishments.LOok at Roberto Clemente greaat player and died doing a humantarian deed but was also a outstanding player

Ghandi was a great man of peaceful disobedience.  MLK saw the power of peaceful protest through the actions of Ghandi.

I wonder if India has a national holiday for Ghandi?

MLK was not only a leader of great social change in the USA but he became a martyr through his assassination.  One could argue, had he not been assassinated, he might not have attained the greatness he has today.

MLK deserves it. But one thing is for certain, if Jesse or Al get assassinated, they don't deserve garbage.
