MLK Parade Unsafe and Lacked Substance
Last comment by Funkentelecky 1 year, 10 months ago.

I was very disappointed with the parade today because it was unsafe. The car clubs were driving crazy and the horses were not disciplined.

I don't think MLK would have been pleased with the music some of the car club members were playing.

The requirements for the parade need to change because the quality of the parade was not good, there was no substance or positive message for the community to walk away with.

I left thinking: MLK day is about cars with big rims, cars that play loud rap music, it's okay to drive in the parade with your child out of the car seat, it's okay to talk on the cell phone while driving and it's okay to drive recklessly.

Please consider revising the standards for the parade participants, let's make sure the participants fall in line with the theme and children aren't allowed to ride in the parade if their not in a car seat or their not allowed to sit on top of the car-not a certain age or weight.

This should have been a day of honor and I should have left feeling empowered and proud.

Why blame the horse?

"Why blame the horse" if a horse isn't tamed and goes out of control-someone could end up hurt. I don't have a problem with the horse...I have an issue with the problem it could pose if the owner can't control it.

Blame the owner, not the horse!

I stopped going to the MLK Parades in Savannah a few years ago. Some peoples were shooting on MLK Day, on MLK Boulevard, during the MLK Parade in between 3 churches. Then the next year as I was home watching on TV, I was on the phone with my son and daughter who were in attendance of that year's parade and shots rang out...again. The phone went dead. 15 minutes later, my daughter called from CiCi's pizza on the South Side of Savannah to say they were alright. None of my family has been back.
