5. Doesn't surprise me

I was shocked to learn that in the Collier School District (Naples) , where I used to work, MLK Day was not receognized here until about 10 years ago. It wasn't until Black teachers and students started calling in sick on that day, that they finally got the message and declared MLK day a school holiday. It's a very, very RED area of Florida.
