Do you think MLK would approve?

The Riviera Beach City Council in South Florida will vote Wednesday on the mayor’s proposal to rename Old Dixie Highway after President Obama.

“Each member will vote Yay or Nay to rid this city of a street name that still invokes memories of racism and slavery in the Old South” said Mayor Thomas Masters, a local NBC affiliate reported.

The meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday in City Hall Chambers in Riviera Beach.

“We’re in the Dr. Martin Luther King celebrations in the city,” Mr. Masters said in January, The Palm Beach Post reported. “What better way to celebrate his legacy than to get rid of what he died for, which was getting rid of old Dixie.”
