Dear World

I appreciate that you are excited about black people.  It is February after all.  I also appreciate that you want to include me in your excitement.  It is part of my job as the director of an African American Studies program.

But could you see fit to spread some of that enthusiasm to other parts of the year?  Trying to learn everything you can about black people in 28 days is a tall order, an impossible one even.  Plus, I'm exhausted.

So let's make a deal.  Save some of that enthusiasm for March or April or October even.  And I promise to help you out.
