At the risk of being accused of fomenting violence, We the People nevertheless proudly proclaim, “1776!”

You know what? I don’t give a bat’s nether regions whether or not Halloween “marginalizes” anyone. It’s fun. It’s nostalgic. It’s at least a quasi-religious holiday that has special meaning to many. As such, it deserves respect. Halloween also has cultural connotations for certain ethnic groups and cultures. As such, it deserves respect–as much as Juneteenth, Ramadan, MLK Day, Cinco de Mayo, Chinese New Year, Diwali, and many other holidays, memorials, or celebrations. This, after all, is America, the melting pot of the world.
