The Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. once famously declared that people should not be judged on the color of their skin, but on the content of their character.
It’s one of the many reasons King is honored with his own federal holiday, and why he is recognized as our country’s greatest civil rights leader.
Social media accounts were filled on Monday with remembrances of the man, with excerpts from many of his famous speeches.
Except for former state Rep. Joe Salazar, who used King as a tool to signal his own alleged virtue with this hateful, racist rant.
Salazar’s bizarre accusations did not go unanswered.
You’re racist too. Remember that time you told me I wasn’t indigenous enough to work on indigenous policy? This is my dad. He’s more native than you! You’re just as racist! pic.twitter.com/fiN6aMCUKC

In another awkward Martin Luther King Day moment, President Biden bumbled about for some 20 minutes in his MLK address before Harris Faulkner of Fox News broke away from the live coverage and pointed out the president had failed to even mention the great man’s name in his rambling speech about his own lame self.

Back in Colorado, Democrat elected officials celebrated by having their pictures taken at the MLK Marade.
Newly elected “Brittany” was also photographed not exactly mingling with the crowd, as she lectured her two-year-old son about civil rights.
Our state proudly hosts one of the largest #MLKDay celebrations in the country each year—the Marade. I was honored to join civil rights leaders from across Colorado—including former Mayor Webb & @COAttnyGeneral —and begin teaching my son about Dr. King & the fight for equality. pic.twitter.com/YYa6P9g6Xd

The senior member of Colorado’s Democrat delegation was once again nowhere to be seen. U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette rarely even bothers to mix with the masses anymore.
