Now that Phoenix and Arizona have lost their Super Bowl, and rightly so, the NFL is thinking about awarding said Super Bowl to San Diego. In my mind that's pretty funny. San Diego is one of a few major cities that has refused to name a major street after Martin Luther King Jr. Whenever it is proposed that anything be named after Dr. King in our city, the racistsrise in mass protest and you will notice that Dr. King or his legacy are not really very evident in "America's Finest City."
Is there any doubt that if a similar election were held in San Diego County to recognize Dr. King's birthday as a holiday, that it would go down to defeat just as it did in Arizona? For San Diego to be awarded the Super Bowl because of Arizona's lack of respect for Dr. King is a joke.
