In all candor, these women are about as indigenous as Liz Warren. I'm fed up with these Marxists seeking to exploit the history of my people. My ancestors, were Wampanoag, and Wampanoags were some of those who attended the feast that later inspired Thanksgiving. Firstly, indigenous peoples were not children, they did not all live in "peace", as all human beings there were bad and good among them. The different nations and tribes of indigenous peoples were not one big family. Some attacked and sought to subsume, and even enslave others. These behaviors weren't benign. The pilgrims, puritans, or settlers, whichever you wish to call them, didn't travel here to raid or loot, they sought religious freedom. They actually lived in peace for just a bit longer than 50 years, with the indigenous peoples. Some of them later did awful things, on the whole, when you look at the so called cultures we're being told had parts of what we call the southwestern US stolen from them, you want to laugh.

The left tells us that Mexico owned the US southwest, ignoring the fact that indigenous peoples, of what we call the US, lived in those lands. The left, along with their Hispanic allies tell us that Mexicans are just naturally "indigenous" because they're "Mestizo", that the Spanish "intermarried" with the indigenous peoples, and lived in "peace and justice" with them, so they get a get out of accountability card. The truth is, the Spanish didn't intermarry with the indigenous, they committed genocide against them. What few peoples indigenous to Mexico, remain, are relatively ethnically pure. Hispanics are extremely racist. After the actual genocides committed against the indigenous in what's now called, "Latin America", the Spanish created the trans-Atlantic slave trade, importing 9 million African slaves, that's 36 times more slaves than were ever brought to the US. The Spanish then attempted to expand their Mexican territory up into the lands of the Navajo, the Ute, and Apache, capturing and enslaving those peoples, torturing, maiming, and killing those who sought to defend themselves, loved ones or escape.

What these Marxists are attempting is to label the US as "imperialists", when in fact it was their Marxist heroes, the communists/socialists who built empire, imposed plantation slavery states, because all Marxist forms of government depend on slave labor, repression. Stalin, Lenin Hitler, Mussolini, Castro, Guevara, Mao. These fascists, took over one country and people after another, stole their resources and enslaved their people, slaughtering them, if they dared to refuse to fall in line. While the US has done things that were wrong, they don't even begin to approach the legacy of the communists/socialists, who in the last century alone slaughtered more innocent peoples, than all the wars, in the history of the world combined. But then again, the left can't actually engage in honest debate, so they attempt to demonize or dehumanize those they seek to attack.

Well, I guess you idiots are right. I mean I learned that Thanksgiving should be about helping each other despite color, or race. But I learned it wrong so I guess my celebrating two groups getting along despite what did happen later on is completely different. I shouldn't learn that two groups can and should get along, thanks idiots, I've nonw learned a new lessong that I didn't know.

Lets take another leap into the past, "Remeber the Alamo", anothe twist on US history that gets left out of the history books.hint, Mexico had banned slavery well before that incident, another hint, Texas was a slave state, so why did the Alamo happen, Texas independence? bull.
No, Mexico didn't "ban slavery" a priest, sought to have slavery banned in Mexico, but the Mexican government didn't want it ended. Mexico didn't actually agree to end slavery until it was forced to. The slavery in Texas, was Spanish in origin. I'm half indigenous, I have friends who are Navajo, we were taught that the Mexican government when it sought to expand Mexico into what is now the US southwest, captured Navajo, Ute, and Apache, and enslaved, tortured, maimed and killed them. they used them as slaves to build all that mission style forts, and architecture, to mine silver, and act as serfs. Hispanic culture is one of genocide, and slavery. It is still a culture that trafficks, sells, women, and children as sex slaves, as drug mules. Human life is cheap, in Hispanic culture, because it is a corrupt, slavery based, empire culture. These fake white "indians" are just Marxists, who hate the US. They're frauds. I've seen a white HIspanic, dressed up like an aztec, shouting at actual indigenous Americans, calling on them to rise up and slaughter "the white man". Frankly, the entire time I was hoping one of them would hall him up by his feathers and shove his head up his back side, stop attempting to exploit them as slaves.

Somebody needs to visit the Jamestown museum. You should stop making up your own revisionist history
.
"In June of 1606, King James I granted a charter to a group of London entrepreneurs, the Virginia Company, to establish a satellite English settlement in the Chesapeake region of North America. By December, 104 settlers sailed from London instructed to settle Virginia, find gold, and seek a water route to the Orient."

The pilgrims came 15 years later.

Well, actually they did in 1829.(There was an exemption for Texas) This was right around the same time that James C. Callhoun was telling the US that it was headed to civil war over states ‘rights, specifically, the right to own people. Even after emancipation, indigenous Native Americans weren't considered people, and weren't granted Habeas Corpus until 14 years later. It was won in Nebraska's federal court by Ponca Chief Standing Bear after losing many of his family in one of the many death marches known as the 'Trail of Tears'

You are right about the Spanish (and Portuguese), though, I want to recognize that; especially when concerning South America The marxism rant has nothing to do with this thread, and really, in philisophical means isn't true, especially when taking percentages into account.

Try making an argument instead of a snide remark. It's clear you're incapable. Until the end of Imperialism in 20th century, peoples have migrated or invaded whatever word you choose, going back to the Ice Age, so stop with the self-righteous victimology 400yrs. later. You don't see the Algonquin protesting the Iriquois for the latter trying to wipe them out. The whole thing is leftist idiocy and the agenda is always the same....money. All these shake-down artists ever want is something for nothing and to take from others what they themselves haven't earned. They blame our ancestors for their ancestors troubles and say "REPARATIONS"! My ancestors were were victims of systematic genocide by the English because of their religion. You don't see me playing the victim. It's sad and pathetic, just like you Mr. NON-free-thinking.
Oh Bill, your confusing issues and bring race to the table, shame on you. Imperialism hasn't ended, read the news.

I caught you sarcasm, but did you miss this part of my post ?"It might be needlessly superfluous to go open old wounds, because reverting back is a fantasy." There still isn't anything wrong with teaching real history instead of the revisionist history that victors so often write.
OK - I have no argument with that. Still, the hypocrisy of the drum beaters of causes gets me fired up every time.

It would seem these American Indians have a problem with "diversity", maybe some "sensitiviy training" is in order.

Actually the native americans not having any written language really did not have culture to speak of. I mean I can enjoy going to an opera written 300 years ago. Who knows what the wapanoge culture was like 100 years before the pilgrims came to the western hemisphere. Do they have a record of what tribe they genocided in order to occupy the land they lived on when the pilgrims arrived.Go to youtube and look up "how whites took over america". It is funny.
