Like so many other aspects of our world, this company is attempting to re-write history. It cannot be done.
What they don't know is that this WILL NOT change history. They might try... but it won't happen. They might try to gloss over what that time in history looked like... but it won't happen. They might try to show that society was a kinder/nicer loving folk... but it won't happen.
Mr. Alan Gribben, a so-called Twain scholar, can justify this change however he sees fit. But it still won't change anything.
The reality is that today our society is still reeling from that hatred and ignorance and fear ...
Espcecially today, on a day to honor the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr, I think about the disservice done to our humanity... and I applaud his courage, his positive attitude, his willingness to put his life and the life of his family and friends at risk for the greater good.
Thank you for your willingness to fight for the right thing, Mr. King.
