I am paranoid that my teacher will be a die-hard MLK fan and think that I am a beast for wanting a different kind of celebration of civil rights.
Yeah, I think everyone should be a die hard mlk fan. And even if we are not, we might tend to see this essay in a negative light because king was SUCH a hero and genius. I'm in awe of his writing.

The effort to convince readers that establishing mlk day was unnecessary is... unnecessary.

A little rewrite would make this all-positive with no irreverence to King.
