Regarding Paul Prather’s Sept. 24 column, here is a proclamation:
In the spirit of hominid foibility, and
In the interest of diversity, inclusion, iconoclasm, cultural appropriation, and the re-imagining of history;
By the power invested in me as an English teacher and writer of letters to the editor, and
As a white, Anglo-Saxon Protestant, I
Do hereby declare and publish that we renounce any title to, or association with, the acronym WASP, and
Do proclaim that henceforth, said acronym shall stand for “Whiner About Slavery, Perpetually,” and
Do urge my fellow citizens: if the shoe fits, wear it in good health.
