Martin Luther King Disrespected by the National Parks. By Geniusofdespair

Next week will be the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream Speech" and the reflecting pool in Atlanta, where his remains rest, looks like shit. Sorry Atlanta.

The National Parks should be ashamed. They have signs saying they are fixing it, but come on. It is is all rusty on the bottom and nasty looking and the National Park knew this anniversary was coming. There is stuff floating in the pool, no fountains, the water looked stagnant and there was algae growing.

It sure didn't look like this first photo -- this is how it looked 3 years ago, the first time I saw it, the water softly moving towards the crypt of Martin Luther King, drawing you to it.

First time I was there.
A few days ago it looked worse than this.

If national retailers want to identify ghettos in any city they just look for Martin Luther King Blvd. Anytime there is a Martin Luther King Blvd it goes through a ghetto.

We are talking about a monument here. Not how to identify a black neighborhood.

Is it too late to blame George Bush?

Blame the sequester.
