  •  Thank you for this. Though I did not know (7+ / 0-)

    about this specific incident, I've never been comfortable with this "holiday", made even more ironic by the fact that when I was growing up my extended family gathered together over dried-out turkey, with the television set at the end of the table so the men could watch football throughout the family meal, and ranted about the minority population "destroying" my hometown.  Things are far better now that we celebrate with close friends but the discomfort still remains beneath the surface.  This country had highly ignoble beginnings and it would seem that facing this fact would be the first step to becoming a better nation.
