Aside

“Thank you for reading this!!!!” [[racially insensitive?]]

if every house was crusted in diamonds
if every sidewalk was littered in diamonds
if every blade of grass was tipped with a diamond
if every grain of sand was a diamond

what would diamonds be worth?

if ever brick of every house had “Nigger!” written all over it
if every square of every sidewalk had “Nigger!” spray painted across it
if ever house had a burning inverted crucifix that said “Nigger!” on it
if every beach was covered in corpses with the word “Nigger!” carved in it

what would the word be worth?

every
single
one

if ever brick of every house had “thank god!” written all over it
if every square of every sidewalk had “thank god!” beautifully painted on it
if ever house had a crucifix that said “thank god!” on it
if every beach was covered in corpses with the word “thank god!” carved in it

what would the word be worth?

every
single
one

what words do you give value to?
what would your thanks mean?

“Thank you for reading this!!!!”
