No holiday

Re "Holiday provokes war between the Souths," March 29

I was horrified to read that Arkansas and Texas celebrate Confederate Memorial Day on Jan. 19, the federal holiday commemorating the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

What does that say about two great states? The institutionalized racism in our country needs to be brought out into the open, to shrivel in the light of a new day.
