I'm a Commie
I say, "Oh, it's Indigenous People's Day."
The white guard responds, "It's Columbus Day. Only pink Commies call it Indigenous People's Day."
I see that his face is flushed, so I chuckle and walk away. He is the same guard who called me a Commie when he saw the KPFA sticker on my 32 oz. drinking pitcher. He had commented that KPFA is a Commie station. I listen to KPFA; therefore, I am a Commie. What ingenuous deductive reasoning!
Well, if listening to KPFA and honoring the indigenous people qualify me was a Commie, then I'm proud of it.
