Just wondering

Has anyone else besides me noticed that whites say, "Up yours!",
whereas blacks say "Your ass!" (I'm assuming that "Up yours!" is also
a clip of "[Fuck you] up your ass!")

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
