Discussing the holidays — and the fireworks that come with them
I haven’t done this in awhile, but today we are in for another super sized edition of Ty’s Take. Originally, I was just going to discuss celebrating the Fourth of July here in town. However, something happened during one of my beats, and I just had to put my two cents in on the matter.
To say I was a little disappointed in the Newton Community School District’s decision to have school on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, is an understatement. When I left Monday’s meeting, the feeling I had was a mixture of anger, disbelief and sadness.
I left feeling an extreme disrespect was dealt to MLK. Here I am, the only person of color in the room and yet, not allowed to make any input on the matter that was at hand.
