    Some twitter person (@woodmuffin, who is no bastion of thoughtful or progressive commentary, so don’t go looking for it there) famously tweeted this year:
    “Why don’t they have a WHITE history month?? Why don’t they have NON-handicapped parking spaces? Why’s there no cemetery for ALIVE people??”

    Now there’s a pithy response that more or less gets it done. I don’t know about the third part as analogy, but the parking spaces one is a relatively apt analogy.
