#178: Fireworks no mas. Racism is Racist. Alt-Right who?



29JUN21: FIREWORKS KAREN HAS FINALLY WON

July 4th, Veterans Day, and Memorial Day are all significant events on our Nation’s calendar that remind us to honor and appreciate the men and women who sacrifice so much for our freedom. As a child I remember loading up the car, driving to the regional park, having a picnic, and then watching a fireworks spectacular set to a medley of patriotic music. It was a highlight of the summer. We all left with full hearts, feeling grateful for our country and the military that defends it. But as I got older I began to realize this time-honored tradition that is supposed to celebrate our service members actually traumatizes many of them.


RIGHT TURN CLYDE

What is the alt-right? Everybody has an opinion about it, but nobody seems to know exactly what it is. So, I took it upon myself to find out. I took a deep dive into alt-right culture. I read their books, listened to their podcasts, watched their videos, followed their blogs, and spoke personally to their leaders. Here’s what I learned: First, they’re really small... like, your high school reunion small.


RACIST AS MOM’S APPLE PIE

If you’re planning to enjoy a warm slice of apple pie for Independence Day, beware that you may be contributing to, according to a column in The Guardian, an American tradition of "stolen land, wealth, and labor." And remember that when you see the distinctive yellow coloring of an Audobon’s Warbler, you may be admiring what the Washington Post calls the bird’s "racist legacy." And if you take yoga classes, you may need to find a new chosen method of fitness. According to Glamour magazine, the practice has a "racist problem." These are not isolated incidents. Mainstream media has made a sport of finding racism in innocuous places.
