  • Today is Martin Luther King Day,

  • a day when America celebrates the legacy

  • of one of its greatest civil rights leaders

  • and a day where black people get to cut in line at Chipotle.

  • At least, that's my excuse.

  • But what is Martin Luther King Day,

  • and how should people celebrate it?

  • Well, for more on this, we turn to a man

  • who has had many dreams that no one wants to hear about.

  • Roy Wood Jr., everybody.

  • (cheering and applause)

  • -Hey. -Welcome, Roy. Welcome. Good to have you.

  • Good to see you. Good to see you, Mandela.

  • Look, MLK Day is a special day for America,

  • and it's a special day for me as someone who has been mistaken

  • for Martin Luther King Jr. many times.

  • (laughter)

  • (cheering and applause)

  • But...

  • But as we get further and further away from his life,

  • it's easy to forget what he was really about,

  • which means sometimes, people celebrate him

  • in a really (bleep)-up way.

  • So today, I'd like to show y'all

  • some of my favorite MLK (bleep)-ups, like this one.

  • NEWSWOMAN: The holiday didn't go as planned for some today.

  • A business in Duluth, Minnesota,

  • created controversy when promoting a sale

  • in honor of the civil rights leader.

  • The sign posted at the shop read,

  • "MLK Day sale.

  • 25% off everything black."

  • But the owner says it was just misinterpreted.

  • 25% off everything black. He was black. He was proud.

  • He looked good. We were celebrating that.

  • (laughter)

  • Are you serious?

  • For MLK Day,

  • 25% off for black clothes?

  • What it should be is 100% off for black people.

  • Free at last, free at last,

  • pants, tops and coats are free at last.

  • (laughter and applause)

  • Yeah, Roy, you know, and what-what makes it worse

  • is that if you read Dr. King's speeches,

  • you'll see that he, like, he was opposed

  • to consumerism and wasteful capitalism.

  • That's right!

  • Celebrating MLK Day with a sale

  • is like commemorating

  • Samuel L. Jackson Day by whispering.

  • That's not what the man stands for.

  • It's not like in the middle of his "Mountaintop" speech,

  • Dr. King just broke off going,

  • "Remember me with savings too insane to be believed.

  • "I might not get to that store with you,

  • "but mine eyes have seen the power of the discount!

  • Come on, Coretta, let's roll."

  • You know, it-it actually... it actually is unfortunate,

  • because it seems like some white people

  • are out of touch with Dr. King's legacy.

  • Oh, it's not just a white thing.

  • In fact, Dr. King might actually be proud

  • that on his special day,

  • people of all colors and backgrounds

  • have been (bleep) up.

  • As we pause to honor Dr. King this year,

  • a flyer for a local event that bears his image

  • is causing quite a stir.

  • But as NBC25's Walter Smith tells us right now,

  • the party is now canceled.

  • The party promoters nowhere to be found.

  • This poster has a lot of people shaking their heads in disgust.

  • It shows Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

  • wearing a gold chain, promoting a party

  • called Freedom to Twerk.

  • It was supposed to take place at this club,

  • but it's been canceled.

  • The owner says he's disgusted,

  • and there'll be no twerking here.

  • (laughter)

  • "There will be no twerking here"?

  • Sound like Gandalf in a Tyler Perry movie.

  • "There will be no twerking here!"

  • And then, you know,

  • the strippers fly all over the place.

  • And also, how are you gonna photoshop Dr. King

  • with gold chains to try and make him look cool?

  • He was already cool.

  • Look at the... look at these real pictures

  • of Dr. King from back in the day.

  • Look at him playing pool in a suit.

  • (cheering and applause)

  • In a suit, right, fresh from a march.

  • That shot's so cool, it doesn't matter if he misses.

  • And here he is making the library look cool.

  • Standing in front of books like they're stacks of money.

  • But this-this is my favorite Martin Luther King:

  • wearing sunglasses inside.

  • Trevor, he could have taken that call in private,

  • but he left the door open for the haters.

  • (laughter)

  • But maybe... maybe the most popular activity

  • on MLK Day is using his legacy to push your own agenda,

  • and no one has done it in a more interesting fashion

  • than this guy.

  • I believe that Gun Appreciation Day

  • honors the legacy of Dr. King.

  • And the truth is I think Martin Luther King

  • would agree with me if he were alive today

  • that if African Americans had been given

  • the right to keep and bear arms

  • from day one of the country's founding,

  • then perhaps slavery might not have been a chapter

  • in our history.

  • (groaning and laughter)

  • Okay, okay. Hold on.

  • I'm pretty sure on Dr. King's list of priorities,

  • giving slaves guns comes way below

  • not having slaves in the first place.

  • -The logic... -(cheering and applause)

  • The logic makes no sense.

  • This makes no sense. How would you do that?

  • Like, dude, do you think the slave owners

  • would have just had a little chitchat?

  • "Well, should we set them free?"

  • "Oh, no, don't set them free.

  • Let's make it interesting. Give them shotguns."

  • Now, I will say this.

  • If slaves did have guns,

  • the movie Roots would have only been 15 minutes long.

  • "Your name is Tob...

  • "Oh, whatever you want us to call you.

  • "That's cool. What is it, Kunta?

  • -Okay, we'll call you Kunta." -Okay, so, Roy,

  • we've seen people mess it up, you know, with sales

  • or, you know, with their own agendas,

  • but what is the proper way to celebrate Dr. King's legacy?

  • Listen, man, it's simple.

  • MLK was for racial equality, economic justice

  • and stood against the exploitation of the poor.

  • And he did so because he knew that one day,

  • our great nation would rise above bigotry,

  • injustice and poverty,

  • and, on that day, my friends,

  • there will be twerking for everyone, everywhere.

  • Roy Wood Jr., everybody.
