'Whitewashing history, revising history, and developing rhetoric that celebrates the creation of a new civic identity for European occupiers—these all contribute to the oppression of indigenous peoples and tribal communities. The stories like those told about the Indians and Pilgrims at Thanksgiving ingrain a false sense of truth into the mind of the general public. These stories tell the populace that “everything is okay,” and, in fact, the “Indians owe a lot to the Pilgrims.” --+ Ashley Nicole McCray
Nobody thinks about this on Thanksgiving! We have transformed it into something positive. Its origins dont matter. Everything in this world is exactly what we make it. You think we should be teaching black kids this trash you post? I never will.
