I love you, man.

There are way too many racists in San Diego. It’s not good at all. To combat this, I went a big rally for equality today. It was awesome. Yay for MLK!

San Diegans are celebrating the memory of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with several events Monday.

The 22nd annual YWCA’s All People’s Breakfast at Golden Hall in downtown San Diego featured guest speakers, a gospel choir and dance performances.

This year’s theme was “Living the Dream.” Organizers say the event celebrates the accomplishments that have been made in the struggle for equality.

“I think Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. solidified a movement that continues today and I’m happy to see that continue today. As I said, we do have more work to do, but I do believe we have made strides,” San Diego County YWCA CEO Heather Finlay said.

San Diegans also attended the United African American Ministerial Action Council’s 15th annual breakfast, held at the Joe and Vi Jacobs Center.

Several organizations held special events in honor of Dr. King’s birthday.

The San Diego Blood Bank held a drive to help raise awareness throughout the community about the lack of African-American blood and bone marrow donors.

Nearly 200 Kaiser Permanente employees helped sort and package food at the San Diego Food Bank, and American Red Cross and HOPE Worldwide helped distribute fire safety information to residents.

Science Project Mistaken for Bomb by Dumb Principal

Boom!

What is wrong with people these days? Especially principals!

Via Fox News:

SAN DIEGO — Authorities say a San Diego middle school was evacuated when a student’s science project was mistaken for a bomb.

A Fire-Rescue spokesman says a concerned vice principal prompted the evacuation of Millennial Tech Magnet Middle School yesterday afternoon.

He says an arson team took photos and X-rays of the empty plastic bottle with wires and determined it was harmless.

He says the 11-year-old was trying to build a motion detector with instructions he found on the Internet and parts he bought online. His parents helped him buy the parts. They say they didn’t realize the experiment looked threatening.
