What would you do if you got a letter like this?
An unidentified resident of St. Anthony, Minnesota received a lovely anonymous letter criticizing their Christmas lights.
Here's the best part:
"The idea of twinkling, colorful lights are a reminder of divisions that continue to run through our society, a reminder of systemic biases against our neighbors who don't celebrate Christmas or who can't afford to put up lights of their own."
The writer also added, "We must do work of educating ourselves about the harmful impact an outward facing display like yours can have."
And as always with these sorts of things, "we" = "you." YOU must do the work and learn to "respect the dignity of all people, while striving to learn from differences, ideas, and opinions of our neighbors."
Oh, and want to see what their privileged Christmas display looked like?
Warning: Brace yourself for the bigotry.
Part of me thinks this can't possibly be real. It's just too stupid.
