Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, celebrating not only the life of Dr. King, but, more importantly, the lessons of inclusion and respect to be learned from his life and untimely death.
In years past, I’ve provided some words of wisdom for employers from this important day:
- 2012: What Dr. King fought for … and what he didn’t
- 2011: MLK Day calls for reflection about how far race relations have come, and how far we have left to go
- 2008: Some words to ponder on MLK Day
If you’ll indulge me, I thought I’d try something a little bit different to memorialize this day: humor—both in the SFW and NSWF variety—each with something important to say about race relations in our society.
And, if humor’s not your thing, I’ll be back to regularly scheduled programming tomorrow with a post answering the age-old disability discrimination question, “How long is too long for a medical leave of absence?”
