The event, according to the outlet, “labeled the holiday as a ‘celebration’ of ‘ongoing genocide,’” and aimed to make its attendees more “culturally aware.” . . .
All was not a total loss, however: Several of the respondents admitted that they didn’t believe the holiday is a racist one, and some copped to simply appreciating the holiday because they have the freedoms to enjoy sharing a good, home-cooked meal with their families.
