Pass the yams please.
Life is good.
And then, in your inbox comes a holiday message from your local Rotary. You might think it will be a holiday message to bring out the cheer in a crazy and fully depressing 2020. Perhaps a message of hope and good news from a charity that once promoted community coherence and unbounded ‘charity.’ “Happy Thanksgiving!” ..right?
No. After reading this email you should do the socially responsible thing and hate your guilty white ass for even existing.
“This week, as many celebrate a Thanksgiving rooted in genocide, join us as we immerse ourselves and our families in the voices and experiences of our Anishinaabe neighbors. Sierra Clark is a local Anishinaabe woman reporting for the Record Eagle’s Mishigamiing project. Sierra became a journalist to tell the stories of her community from her own perspective.”
Yeah, nice opening salvo from the Rotary ‘holiday letter.’
Clearly, we should all fully immerse ourselves in the wokeness that anything ‘white’ ain’t right, and that settlers came upon a vulnerable 1st nation gunning for supremacy. That Squanto was an original sufferer of Stockholm syndrome, and Pilgrims should have worn masks.
The year cannot get any stranger.
