Happy Thanksgiving!

Postby Madison » Thu Nov 25, 2010 6:36 am

Here's hoping everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving. ;-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Good thing we wait to give thanks until the calendar marks a holiday rooted in genocide and imperialist domination of Native Americans. That way we can be ungrateful jerks for the other 364 days of the year. :-°

Some of us are thankful every single day for what we have.

Sorry to hear Thanksgiving Day is such a black mark on your soul.

I don't know about your family, but that's not what my family celebrates on Thanksgiving.

People celebrate weird things if you look at it properly.

You guys celebrate feasting with a Native American tribe after you had both rogered another tribe.

Australia's national day celebrates NOT when they landed here, but a week afterwards when they found a bit of land that they liked the look of (after they had given up on the their first landing place), and their leader "officially" planted a flag.

New Zealand's national day celebrates a treaty that both the British crown and Maori chiefs signed, then pooped on for the next 40 years.

I'm one of those people that doesn't set aside a single day to be thankful for my circumstances, and I make an effort to actually act on it 365 days a year. This holiday is less of a black mark on my soul and more of a joke; its roots are just a bonus. No, seriously, why can't we just get rid of Thanksgiving's connections to this Pocahontas crap when it's nine parts myth to one part truth? Why can't we celebrate togetherness without disguising a 500-year slaughter as peaceful unity?

I just think it's detrimental to progress if people don't recognize history and continue to view Native Americans as parasites and trash instead of cultures that were on the ass end of five centuries of persecution. I have the same qualms about Columbus Day, actually, and the exclusively Eurocentric perspective offered there as well.
