Turkeys & Black Folk

On Thanksgiving 43,000,000 turkeys are consumed by Americans and there about 45,000,000 black people in America. Now another interesting fact that aligns black folks with turkeys:
 
The Year Was 1863
 
"US President Abraham Lincoln issued both the Emancipation Proclamation as well as the recognition of Thanksgiving as a National Celebration both in 1863. So it could be said that Abraham Lincoln freed all slaves in the southern states from their lives of pure hell while condemning turkeys to their new life of pure hell with the stroke of the same hand and maybe even the same pen."
