I don’t know how to do it, I just don’t want to.
I don, either.
The idea of gifting a black man a white elephant has been around since the 1970s, when an old lady at a white-owned restaurant in New York City asked the owner to buy one for her grandson.
But in recent years, it’s been harder to find a good gift.
And the more I’ve looked, the more complicated it seemed to me.
So I decided to figure out how to gift one to my black friend.
It’s been a rough journey.
I have a gift basket with me, and I have my black-owned family to thank for that.
We’re not a very good team.
We have to do everything together.
So it’s like, How do I gift this?
We had to go to my mother and say, I don.
She was like, I have this one for you, and it’s really cool.
I gave it to my grandmother.
I got it from a friend.
I bought it for my sister.
I found it on eBay.
It was on clearance.
I didn’t even know it was black-market.
But it’s not.
It has a story behind it.
So what I’m going to do is try and give it to somebody who will get a little bit of credit.
It’ll be my way of saying thanks to them.
So that’s how I’m doing it.
I’m not going to be a total asshole, but I will make sure that I’m using a very professional gift-giving service.
I can’t be rude about it.
But I want to do the right thing for the people who need it.
It really helps to be able to say thank you in a way that they know is sincere and will make a difference.
So we’re not gonna do anything fancy, but there’s some black-and-white art in the gift, and we have some black fabric, some black card stock, some leather, and some gold.
And I’m also gonna be using a couple of different colored thread so that people will be able see it’s a gift that’s made with love and affection.
So you have the gifts in black and white, and there’s also a black and silver box that I am going to put it in, and you have to hand-wash it and seal it with a gift certificate.
Then, if you want to get your hands on the elephant, you’re going to have to have a very, very strong sense of your relationship with this animal.
It may be a gift of gratitude, or it may be just a little reminder of what happened.
Or it may just be something that you have.
But ultimately, I think that it’s going to come down to your relationship to the elephant.
And it doesn’t matter how much you want it to come from someone else.
But if it’s something that was brought to you from a person who truly cares about it, then I think you’re more likely to be successful in the gifting process.
So thank you.
Thank you for being with us today.
It is such a blessing.
And we’ll see you soon.
