Tonight’s Convention

The one line that struck me in all of tonight’s speeches was one from Melania Trump about how we Americans are not proud of everything in our history.

Our history? It’s clear that she was referring to slavery as a part of the nation’s history. She’s an immigrant, born in Slovenia, with no connections to ancestors who were either American slaveholders or slaves. As the descendant of slaveholders, I’m impressed by her willingness to take up part of our nation’s historical burden as her own. Her roots originally may have been in Slovenia, but she has transplanted herself here. I’m an American by birth. She’s an American by choice. Our history!

Dobro, Gospa Trump!
