These people seem disinterested in learning their own history. It makes them look extremely uneducated. Not to mention dumb.

It isn't simply about recognizing the most prominent Hispanic figure in the civil-rights movement. It's about recognizing Dallas' changing face.
That says it all. Next, they'll demand to have streets nationwide renamed to "recognize" our nations' changing face.

There are Martin Luther King boulevards and avenues in most major cities. However, all that I have seen have been located in predominately black lower-class areas. I have yet to see one in the middle of downtown metropolis. You certainly won't see one in the K Street corridor of downtown DC, or in Georgetown, or near the national monuments.

If anyone has knowledge of a Martin Luther King Blvd/Ave, etc. being located in a major area of a city, with the possible exception of Atlanta, please advise.

Agreed. In Chicago Martin Luther King Drive runs in the predominantly black middle to lower class areas as well. I know of no suburb in Illinois where a street named after him even exists.

For the record: there is a Judge Perez Blvd in St Bernard Parish, La.........somehow I doubt the Hispanics would get now behind deceased judge Leander H. Perez-----he was a vicious White supremacist whose ancestors hailed from Spain.

As AB said, ceasar chavez was anti-illegal. He was pushing for harvester union, and illegals brought down wages for the farm workers.

In fact, here's one of his quotes:
Quote:
"Our potential competition appears almost unlimited as thousands upon thousands of green carders pour across the border during peak [COLOR=#3976C1 ! important][COLOR=#3976C1 ! important]harvest[/color][/color] seasons. These are people who, though lawfully admitted to the United States for [COLOR=#3976C1 ! important][COLOR=#3976C1 ! important]permanent [COLOR=#3976C1 ! important]residence[/color][/color][/color], have not now, and probably never had, any bona fide intention of making the United States of America their permanent home."
to keep it short..

I know this isn't a major city, but there is a Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School in a fairly wealthy neighborhood of whites, Indians, and East Asians in Edison, NJ. Because anything named after MLK is usually in a black area of town, I was surprised when I drove by this school and saw *ZERO* black people out and about in the surrounding neighborhoods of $500,000-$800,000 homes.

Yes, but the majority of illegal aliens and their supporters aren't concerned with his anti-illegal stance. That's not their primary motive for wanting the street name changed. Did you read the article? Or, it could be simply another manifestation of their pathology. After all, they LOVE Mexico…..the country that hates them.
