A Special Memorial Day Dedication

Late last year I posted a vlog responding to what I heard many of my conservative friends parrot on Facebook about the peaceful protests conducted by NFL players. As I hinted in the video, Fox News had done its job by arming its watchers with talking points that sound on point if you're inclined to think you are the least bit supreme to others. One of the points I addressed was the notion that these Fox Newsers have been mistakenly under the impression that only their families have spilled blood for the American flag.

I would like to deliver a special salute to those who have sacrificed for an America that has historically been less than grateful. They fought for the freedoms of Americans who today think that people of color landed on planet Earth last week. Thanks to the immigrants who have shed blood for Americans who would then have those heroic fighters' caskets deported in the name of their twisted concept of America. Thanks to those who know what it means to fight for liberty and justice for all.

1. There have been African Americans

In our armies since the revolution. To claim whites have a special place at that table is revisionist and racist.
