Private Jefferson’s Story

Once, while doing my two weeks with the Army Reserve, I met a very nice young fellow named Private Jefferson. He told me that his boot camp drill instructor told him to amuse the rest of his company of basic trainees by singing the theme from the TV show, The Jeffersons, “Movin’ On Up.”

At this point, I’m sure many of you are wondering why this unconscionable misdeed was not reported in the press and receive 24/7 news coverage. (You know those two race-baiting pigs Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton would want to get involved.) I think the answer is because Private Jefferson happened to be white.
