Today is a day that many in America celebrate by being off from school or work to honor all the past Presidents as well as, the current one for being the head CEO, the Head of this nation. Now we all know many if not most people are just relaxing or in some cases may not even know why they are off today. Today’s America is…well that’s another story for another time.
I didn’t plan on posting anything today but after a bit of thought and research I found something unique to discuss: “should we honor past Presidents who were slave owners? Ok, I already know what proponents will say that, “I am trying to be politically correct?” Millions of Caucasian, as well as, my race or cultural group will say, “it’s time to get over slavery but….really has this nation done so?“ I think not. So they would be wrong in such assumptions. As life changes so should we. We exclaim at the highest that we are a nation of progression yet in many cases we are regressing just with a bit more freedom to be our weakest and most lost selves.
