We want to stick our hands in the sandPosted: April 26, 2023 Filed under: Uncategorized Leave a comment
On the MSNBC show “Ana Cabrera Reports”, Eddie Glaude said, “Oftentimes, we want to stick our hands in the sand and say it’s not about race”. This is a mashup of “stick (one’s) head in the sand” (avoid a particular situation by pretending it does not exist) and “throw up (one’s) hands in the air” (express frustration or despair), “Hand” rhymes with “sand” so that may have misled the speaker, as well as “hand” sounding similar to “head”. Also, “stick your hands up” may have been in the mix. A big thank you to Jim Kozlowski for hearing this one and sending it in!
