Paid Day Off Subdues Local Man’s Racism
All around the United States, people are celebraing Martin Luther King Day. By reflecting on the great work Dr. King did, we feel the overall growth of racial unity in our country. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the home of Leaonard Newton, whose usually racist sentiments have been subdued by a paid day off.
“You know what, Dr. King really did some great work” Newton said, putting his feet up after waking up at noon. “I think it’s very important we have a day to reflect on that”
Newton has decided to spend the day honoring Dr. King by drinking a bloody mary and watching the 1980’s comedy film Porky’s.
“I really feel like I’ve come so far. We’ve all come so far.” Newton said, before taking a mid-afternoon nap.
