The day after thousands rallied to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s March on Washington, the National Mall looks like a trash dump.

The grass from the Lincoln Memorial to the World War II Memorial is covered Sunday with empty soda cans, water bottles, boxed lunches, newspapers, a broken chair and rally signs. The Reflecting Pool also was filled with trash.

Yup. It’s a mystery.

Typical of the left. You can guess the politics of any protest or gathering by how much trash they leave behind.

I went to 8/28 in Washington DC. The media vastly underestimated the number of people there. I'd say, at least 250k. The place as left SPOTLESS.

Typical of these people. They crap in their government-subsidized nest and then move on. All you need to do is look at Detroit, Watts, Patterson, Newark. Gary.

Coming soon to your neighborhood.

That is exactly how they live their lives.

Why would we expect them to act any differently on one particular day.

Nope. It is the legacy of the race baiters who took over and distorted MLKs message for personal gain.

MLK: content of character over color of skin. That is my hope, too. But that’s not where we are at. Not even close.

That is nothing compared to what the Mall looks like every year following “Earth Day.” I saw it first hand for years. A breathtaking day-after expanse of garbage strewn shin deep from the Washington monument to the Capital steps. All courtesy of the libtard hypocrite environmentalists.

You can't accomplish crap without a little pride and self respect for yourself, real pride and real self respect.

Turning the nation's capital into a garbage dump for all to see with no shame, says it all.

You witnessed politically motivated idiots, which I think is one of the reasons turn-out was so low that the media barely dares to show it.

I saw a black family (probably tourists, because I didn’t recognize them and it’s a small parish) at Mass this morning and I was thinking how hard it is for them to just be normal human beings with all the political manipulation going on now.

"Give DC to the people"

"The people" ( black people) pretty much control DC ALREADY, and they've made a mess of it. How would statehood improve things? By making them eligible for more handouts?

I was there as well. That was the largest group of people I’ve ever seen that remained completely classy, respectful, and as you mentioned, left the Mall cleaner than when they arrived.

Typical ghetto manners, like here in Battle Creek, Michigan, is to throw trash, used diapers, fast food containers, out the window of a moving car.

Too eurocentric to use a trash receptacle. Now you wonder why were don’t want N-—— in the neighborhood.

I think it’s an honest reflection of the left’s perspective: it’s always someone else’s responsibility to clean up the messes they create. In fact it’s an “entitlement” or “right” to them.

That's funny because 50 years after Mike King (his legal name) had a dream (scripted by his Communist handlers) the rest of this country's cities look like a trash dumps, too.

How would statehood improve things?

It wouldn't improve anything for DC or for the USA, but it would give the Democrats two safe Senate seats, one of them to be held for life by Jesse Jackson, the other by a clone of Jesse Jackson.

In the future, whenever anyone brings up MLK's legacy, I will post the aftermath of Maumau's first inauguration...

And perhaps a few of Obama sons' murder mug shots...

I saw an apartment right beside a railroad track in Memphis not far from where King was shot. The trash all along the building between it and the tracks had garbage about 4 feet high. It had 5 stories and it was obvious they were throwing their garbage off the balconies. Too lazy to walk down to the garbage dumpster is my conclusion.

I’m sure MLK is rolling in his grave, no matter what you might think about him, I don’t believe what is going on now was his intention.

Every city I’ve been in that has a MLK Street, Blvd,
or Ave...are total cesspools, some of them start out ok, but progressively, almost immediately regress.
