Every year on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, for the past several years, I have been posting King's most inspirational posts on Facebook, all day long. My friends who claim to idolize him (two black, two not) normally like and comment on a lot of stuff I post, but they always go mysteriously silent on MLK Day. Not one of them has ever liked or commented on a single one of my MLK posts. Ever. Literally not even once.
It can't be just coincidence that FOUR different people who are regulars on Facebook happen to not notice any of my many MLK posts. I post one nearly every hour on the hour because he is one of my heroes too. I'm afraid to ask them about it because I worry that they'll get offended and accuse me of trying to "kiss black ass" as one Facebook friend put it last year, to which I responded by unfriending him (another reason I no longer accept friend requests from strangers).
I also find it very strange that none of these friends who claim to love MLK so much ever post anything about him on his day. None of this makes any sense.
