Jason Johnson quote…
“Jelani, I want to point this out. Thanksgiving has evolved in America, just like Christmas, right? At one point, Christmas was a time for rich people to open up their houses for people to come in and get stuff. Thanksgiving has changed over time as well. I know in my family, I know several people who call it “Colonizer Christmas,” because they don’t really like the idea of what Thanksgiving represents.”
JELANI COBB: Sure. Or even think about it: that original Thanksgiving, you know, where the colony was starving, and, you know, anthropological research suggests was in such dire conditions they had to resort to cannibalism to remain alive.
There are only a few times when families get together.
