Holiday Rationale, By Matt Shevin.
If you’ve got a hangup with the country taking the day off for George Washington, who owned over a hundred slaves and raped quite a few of them, do what I do: spend the day honoring Major League Baseball’s George Washington Payne. While he only hit .268 for the ’36 White Sox, his slave rape stats were virtually nonexistent. Way to be, George.
