THE TRUTH OF NATIVE AMERICANS BEFORE THE GENOCIDE
Gotta put this on blast.
We never needed a white savior.
I hate this country.
What I learned from this video:
- 100 million Native Americans died at the hands of white colonists
- Instead of planting crops the colonists spent their days digging random holes in the ground looking for gold. They started starving and dug up Indian corpses to eat. They took Indian prisoners and forced them to teach the colonists how to farm
- Native Americans had massive cities with tens of thousands of well constructed houses, intricate water canals and large merchant areas.
- The Native Americans used soaps, deodorants and breath sweeteners while colonists never bathed or even took of their clothes
- There was a delousing policy with the mantra Nits create Lice; nits being Native American babies, so their goal was to kill every Indian, including babies
- In the 1700’s 80% of the Federal Budget went towards eradicating the Native American population so they could take their developed farmland
- Colonists leaders went town after town killing men women and children under the approval of George Washington
- "Pursue Indians to extermination" -Thomas Jefferson
- California governor (1849-1851): “extermination must continue to be waged until the Indian becomes extinct”
The main factor which prevented Native American extinction was the fact they were used for slave labor. The most prized Native Americans were young girls who were said to be valued for labor and lust (that one white dude in your ethnic studies class that says he’s 1/36th Cherokee?)
In modern times children were forced into Indian Boarding Schools whose goal was to “Kill the Indian in them”. It was federal policy. They were beaten if they used their native tongue, they were forced to dress and style their hair like whites
This country was literally built on terrorism and mass murder. White people are savage terrorists.
Until, this is taught in schools everywhere- “history class” is merely a racism propaganda course.
Things to marinate on this “holiday” weekend
I always get confused at first when people say this needs to be taught in schools everywhere, because this basically IS the history class I grew up with in Northern Manitoba. Like, pre-colonial Native history, the history of both settlers who were hostile to natives and the ones who cooperated fairly well with them and how that created the entirely new and unique Metis culture, and the history of Louis Riel and his rebellion was stuff we were learning as far back as grade five. Native studies focused primarily on precolonial native history and mythology and deconstructing native representation in the media is a mandatory class to get a high school diploma from our school division up there.
Makes me remember not to take that kind of upbringing for granted.
THERE MUST BE A PARAGRAPH BREAK EVERY TIME A NEW CHARACTER SPEAKS
THIS IS NOT OPTIONAL
NO ONE WANTS TO READ ONE BIG BLOCK OF TEXT JESUS CHRIST
REMEMBER TIP TOP OK:
Make a paragraph every time that any of these things change!
- Things that could have made me ship carenzo
- Enzo sees Caroline crying and decides to comfort her instead of leaving her alone in the car to kill an innocent woman.
Things that happened
- Enzo came to Stefan’s house acted like a douchebag,sees Caroline crying,leaves her alone in the car,kills an innocent woman just to “ruin” her best friend’s life.
So proud of my mother for doing her own research after I sent her that meme. A sign she hung in her car window.
Is this true?
Not only is it true, it gets worse. The Susan G Komen For The Cure Foundation has actually successfully sued “competing” charities, because (paraphrasing) their “message or branding was infringing.”
You read that correctly: they took money that people had donated to cure cancer, and hired attorneys with it, to sue ANOTHER group of people trying to find a cure for cancer, who, in turn, had to us their donated money to hire their own legal counsel to defend themselves.
Yeah signal boost because not enough people know about this and seriously FUCK SUSAN G. KOMEN THEY ARE THE ACTUAL WORST

Update #Recall4Mike 982 registered Ferguson voters are needed to recall the officials (mayor, police chief and police that protected Darren Wilson). Boost this and let’s make it happen! Make sure it gets to Ferguson, they hold the Power in this!
This is Not a game, This is a GAME CHANGER!
Fuck them up Ferguson
If the point of the Big Bang Theory was to show that male nerds can be just as sexist as male jocks then well done I guess
