History is history

Concerning the article, "Labor Union Members say they saw Racist Book in Ferguson's D.C. Office," should we get rid of all history so as not to offend anyone?

It doesn't matter if you are black or white, Republican or Democrat, history is fact and it needs to be read, studied and used to learn how we can improve the future. I think Martin Luther King, Jr. saw history as a way to improve the dream for African American people. He didn't use these ridiculous antics to stir up racism.

How about looking for ways to love your neighbor instead of ways to cause hatred and resentment.
