For John, BLUF: My exit question is, can I still have Turkey for dinner? Nothing to see here; just move along.
From Campus Reform, by Campus Correspondent Andrew Lawrence, 20 November 2018.
Here is the lede plus one:
A library at a Massachusetts college referred to Thanksgiving as a “#NationalDayOfMourning” on Sunday.I wonder what a "Decolonized Thanksgiving Day would look like? Who cares if the Pilgrims would recognize it. Would those who lived through the Civil War have recognized it? What about those who lived through World Wars One or Two?
The McQuade Library at Merrimack College in North Andover, Mass. took to Facebook to promote an article entitled “Decolonizing Thanksgiving: A Toolkit for Combatting Racism in Schools.”
Deep down inside I wonder if the perpetrators of "decolonizing" are really against any form of Thanksgiving that has any sort of Judeo-Christian patina on it.
Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
