These two Black organizations have been feuding for years over Houston's annual MLK parade, so the city issues two permits for the same time, different routes.
Both parades are expecting a large turnout and organizers say they hope to unify, not divide, the people of Houston in remembrance of Martin Luther King Jr.
"With both parades at the same time, I believe that Dr. King is just giving people as many ways as possible to unite in celebration of him," McPherson said. "It's like he's still bringing the people together."
If MLK were alive today the racialists in the media would be referring to him as a ‘cornbread brother’.

And of course the 2 parades are a Special Exemption from the city’s one parade a day policy.

The city of Houston only allows one parade permit per calendar day EXCEPT for this day.
How is Queen Sheila Jackson Lee supposed to know which parade has the better camera pool coverage?
Maybe they’re separate parades for Stonewall Jackson Day and Robert E. Lee Day.

I love it - I would love to see the parades intersect and all hell break loose.
