Ben Hillyer / The Natchez Democrat — If Jamie Wilson Jr., above right, needed a reminder of what Monday was all about, all he had to do was read the big, bold letters on his T-shirt. Behind him, Bobbie Gordon was also wearing a T-shirt to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day and the inauguration of the president Monday.

    LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING khakirat, YOU *DID NOT* VOTE FOR OBAMA. YOU ARE *NOT* A WHITE DEMOCRAT,YOU *ARE* A RACIST, YOU *DON’T* KNOW HOW TO BE REAL. THERE ISN’T ANYTHING WRONG WITH YOUR FAMILY CELEBRATING ROBERT E. LEE BIRTHDAY YESTERDAY, THIS IS A FREE COUNTRY, YOU CAN CELEBRATE WHAT EVER HOLIDAY YOU WANT AND WHEN EVER YOU WANT. NOW TO THE POINT OF THE N.D. DIDN’T GIVE YOUR HERO FRONT PAGE HEADLINE, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LOOK IN THE MIRROW AND ASK YOURSELF THAT QUESTION AND I GUARANTEE YOU WILL GET A ANSWER. YOU THINK JUST LIKE A JIM CROW. ARE YOU ONE ? YOU CAN TELL ME, I WANT TELL ANYONE ELSE. I PROMISE.
