SCRANTON -- Remembrances were held all across our area and the country in honor of slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.

People marched through downtown Scranton Monday evening.

The march started at the United Neighborhood Centers along Olive Street and ended at Courthouse Square.

The marchers spoke King's words and talked about his push for racial equality.

Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in 1968 in Memphis, Tennessee.

    Oh, I’m so oppressed, I can’t bear it! These marchers are almost as annoying as the women who will be marching on January 21st. Delusional, with too much time on their hands.

    how about marching to the employment office and get a job…instead of another piercing or tat, how about getting yourself out of the slum, pay your share, contribute something…really…anything…instead of having your hand out for free food, housing, education, etc…it’s called pride…THEN I would celebrate MLK with you…
