Dear Mr. VP,
Today, you and Karen visited the MLK memorial.
You’re right. Martin Luther King Jr. was a great American leader. He should be honored.
But your wreath laying rings hollow.
What would honor Martin Luther King?
Denouncing a president who calls African countries shitholes would do it. Refusing to dog whistle to white supremacists by using catchphrases like “America First.” Ceasing the GOP war on voting rights for people of color. Addressing issues of economic inequality rather than handing tax cut giveaways to corporations. Allowing children access to healthcare.
The wreath makes for a nice photo op. But you’ve done nothing to honor MLK.
