    The English have such a way with understatement, referring to centuries of abuse, mistreatment, and discrimination as “these problems.”

    I particularly like the phrase “indignation is so important.”

    Too true–whatever happened to our righteous indignation?! Somehow, we allowed people to convince us we weren’t “righteous” anymore and that we had no right to be “indignant.” Now we’re just “pissed off.” (Well, I am anyway…)
