Web letters: 2 civil rights leaders treated differently

This is the story of two civil rights leaders. Both advocated the same message: Peace; love your neighbor; all persons are created equal

One is honored with his name and image on government office buildings, libraries, streets and bridges. His picture is displayed in the offices of many government officials. He has a national holiday in honor of his birthday. There are no lawsuits or demonstrations in protest of all this.

Merry Christmas.
