It may very well be that a whole lot of white people including various people of color, and a few Blacks themselves do feel that a show of gratitude would be in order. I guess the unsolicited subscription to whiteness frames their presence in America as deliverance from certain damnation in their homeland. The honor bestowed upon them to receive the distinction of being hyphenated Americans is something I could never understand, it seems as my ignorance doesn’t run that deep.

I am inspired to write more on this but in a separate post. In the meantime lets truly be thankful for our human persistence.

Happy Thanksgiving Sam.
