Reflections on the Holiday
COLUMNS & FEATURES
I must say, as I always do, that the King Holiday honoring Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr. is my favorite holiday of the year. Don’t get me wrong, I
love Thanksgiving, Christmas and all of the other holidays spent with family
and friends throughout the year.

But the King Holiday is one that hasn’t been commercialized yet — and I
pray to God never does get commercialized. It is a time for reflection and
contemplation not only on civil rights, but deeper than that. It is a time to
reflect on our common humanity and how we treat one another.
I must say that I am very encouraged by the election of Tony Evers as
governor of Wisconsin. Beyond the usual partisan rhetoric, I find Tony to
be a decent man. Many people conjectured that he couldn’t get elected
because he wasn’t personally calling out his opponent and calling him all
sorts of vile names.

I’ve only met Tony when he has volunteered with the 100 Black Men
Backpacks for Success event where he has volunteered for the past four
years. It wasn’t a gambit and I think he truly enjoyed interacting with the
kids and their parents as he handed out backpacks filled with school
supplies. He is an educator after all. He wasn’t there in campaign mode
making sure that he was seen by one and all. He was just one of the
volunteers there for the kids.

I like Tony because he isn’t shrill and speaks with a lot of double talk. He is
mild-mannered and straight forward. And he is very matter-of-fact about
what is agenda is. He wants full funding for Wisconsin’s public schools and
the Medicaid expansion from the Affordable Care Act. And most impressive
is that right out of the blocks, he said that he wants to restore in-state
tuition for the children of immigrant families --
