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.

… wow, now I feel like my AP US History teacher went above and beyond in a lot of ways. We spent a fair bit of time talking about the “boarding schools” that … really, boarding school isn’t the right name for them. Forced acculturation centers is a better term. While we didn’t go into depth on our early presidents’ attitudes, he was rather … critical (that’s a good, mild term) of the idea of manifest destiny, and strongly attacked the theft of native land.

I wish every school, every US history student, had a teacher like that. Because he was amazing. He was the first person to really teach me to be critical of history books, and for that I will always be grateful.

Sheryl Underwood revealed that back in the 1990s, she was up for a part on “The Queens of Comedy” tour, Walter Latham’s female spinoff of “The Kings of Comedy. “ But Underwood said before she had a chance to accept the role, she overheard three stars of the show talking smack about her on a conference call.

Underwood said urban comics Laura Hayes, Adele Givens and Sommore were trash talking her comedic abilities – and her appearance — without realizing she was on the line. Underwood later called show creator Walter Latham and told him she didn’t think the part would be the right fit for her. The comedian also said that she has worked with Hayes and Givens since the incident, but up until now, the three women did not know that she overheard the phone call.

Classy! SHE GETS IT! That’s victory. No need to be a fishwife! Nice! They helped you get there.

Black Houstonian sisterhood…

"Bad chick H Town…"

YASSSSSSSSSSSS! *soufsides*

Oh my God. I love this so much. I mean, look! The big sister and little sister of each pairing are on the same side, in similar poses, wearing almost the exact same expressions. Not to mention, both pictures contain an interesting and pretty cool looking background atmosphere. Like, it’s just a perfect photographic match up, you know?! Ugh. So amazing <3
