THE COONS APPROVE OF MARTIN LUTHER KING DAY.

Oops! Somebody made the colored folks angry. The blacklash has started. Where it will end, nobody knows.

One thing I know. All Communist, woman beating, whore-mongering plagiarizers should have their own day. Right? Right? …

So, the coon asks a good question. How will YOU be celebrating Martin Luther KIng day?

The city of Biloxi, Mississippi, faced backlash after publishing notices that it would be observing “Great Americans Day” on the third Monday of January — more widely known as Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

The city’s official Twitter and Facebook accounts announced on Friday that Biloxi’s non-emergency municipal offices would be closed on Monday “in observance of Great Americans Day,” which is also the federal holiday celebrating the birth of the nation’s most celebrated civil rights hero.

The posts have since been deleted.

According to a statement released by the city’s mayor Andrew “FoFo” Gilich, the origin of “Great Americans Day” was traced back to a December 1985 City Council decision that proclaimed the third Monday of every January would “honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as well as other great Americans who have made important contributions to the birth, growth and evolution of the country.”

Gilich said he believed the city’s Code of Ordinances should be updated.

“In my opinion,” Gilich said in a late Friday evening statement, “that is the appropriate step to take, for the holiday to have the same name as the federal holiday.”

The mayor did not address who wrote the social media posts and why they chose to reference “Great Americans Day” rather than the notable federal holiday. Biloxi celebrates Martin Luther King Jr. Day every year with a large parade — an event the mayor himself noted.

“This city’s longstanding support of our annual MLK celebrations speaks volumes about our support for this holiday,” the mayor added in his statement. “In fact, we’ve always celebrated this day as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day.”

Mississippi, along with Alabama and Arkansas, also celebrate Robert E. Lee Day on the third Monday in January as well. Lee led the Confederate forces during the Civil War.

Users on social media were vocal about their opinion of Biloxi’s reference to “Great Americans Day.”

“In my opinion,” Gilich said in a late Friday evening statement, “that is the appropriate step to take, for the holiday to have the same name as the federal holiday.”

We always called him “Martin Luther Coon.” That custom prevailed after his day replaced President’s Day. Martin Luther King Day became Martin Luther Coon Day for many in the South. That’s still true. And why not. The official story about MLK is bullshit propaganda worse than the bullshit told by the Communist regime in the Soviet Union.

    • Knowing that Trump’s swearing in is just around the corner makes it easier to stomach “marching, looting, and killing day.” That’s good. I never heard that before. We southerners just stick with Martin Luther Coon even though the K gets replaced by a C. And for those who might not know, you’re right to blame Reagan who caved in to give us this horrible holiday.
