COLUMBUS was warmly welcomed and noted in his diary that the friendly natives might make good slaves. To the influx of Europeans that followed the native people were weird, primitive, backwards, heathens. They came from a land where Monarchs & the Church owned everything they could not express difference of opinions without being charged with Heresy or Treason which resulted in public death. There was no opportunity, full lives of indebtedness.
I can fully understand why your ancestors wanted to escape that. What I don't understand is the way they were welcomed, fed, taught what to plant, what was edible, and how to rotate crops and then turned it around to where you can even find in the old history books that they encountered blood thirsty savages and that we carried diseases. Is it not strange to you how they contradicted that with their thanksgiving story that also went along so kids could cut the fake paper feathers and run around slapping their mouths to play at war cries? I know that you watched Westerns, who were the bad guys? Who were the brave hero's? How did my people almost get wiped out, why do you think that regular people that knew nothing about us personally would come "buy I find that primitive & backwards but that is exactly where Corporations & Conservative Republicans are trying to goproperty and kill us for bounty?? because of what they were told Dirty, blood thirsty, sexually deviant, stupid, childlike, backward, witches, like animals. Still to this day I encounter people that say our people deserved what we got because we were doing nothing with the land, completely forgetting what their own people documented about their first encounters in their own books.
That was not well known because only the Nobles were ensured education most of the people coming here could not read and could only make their mark. Yes, the tribes had wars and conflicts, does the existence of such scream unworthy of existence? If that is the case, maybe you should watch the gangs of New York, based on the truth of how the different factions from your country could not make peace and continued to war. Yes after being denied access to land, water, treaty upon broken treaty many natives declared war fighting for their existence, many others accepted the reservations and relocations with no other choice but death. Any that did not go were massacred men woman babies. Babies with skulls crushed upon rocks. Stragglers hunted like animals.

Third World Skeptical Kid Meme | YOU MEAN TO TELL ME THAT AMERICANS FEEL BAD FOR WINNING? | image tagged in memes,third world skeptical kid | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
Yeah I don't beleive for one moment that you're actually of Native blood. You sound like a liberal trying to, again, demonize the white Europeans while trying to make the Natives look like victims.

All races, cultures, and countries are guilty of the same crimes. To try and make the Natives out to be different, while still admitting that they did **pe, kill, enslave, and war with others, is hypocrisy at its finest. Kudos to you for attempting to argue bullshit so passionately.

The Natives weren't treated worse than the Japanese, the Germans, the Chinese, the Vietnamese, etc. lol I mean honestly dude, do you really buy the bullshit history lessons we get in school and from the mainstream media?

I mean, you even suggest watching a HW film like Gangs of New York as if it's historically accurate. lol I bet you think Schindler's List was "real" too?

The point of the meme is to get people who guilt whites to STFU for once. There was evil, and always will be evil in this world regardless of what whites do or if they are even here anymore. The mainstream wants you to want to make whites feel guilty over things like this just like they want the Germans to feel guilty for Hitler or the Japanese to feel guilty for Hirohito.

I call bullshit, and you, if you have any real reasoning, should as well. :l

Look, I'm not demonizing anyone. Atrocities have happened all throughout history. You may feel like you had nothing to do with it and get over it, I get how you feel but you have no idea no possible way to relate to exactly what our people are trying to get over. I can tell that you don't want to understand either. I also am tired of being labeled a liberal because I'm a Democrat or maybe I'm independent I'm not sure I don't support abortion, I don't trust taking guns away, my son is an Army MP in Korea, my brother was in Iraq and Afghanistan so I support troops and veterans. Your reason seems to be limited to snap judgements. Mine is not.

I'm sorry to tell you that a single picture or even five in a meme doesn't sway me. Anyone could get five photos and use that in their obvious guilt trip like you're doing now. Hell, I'm a 1/16th Cherokee myself. And I'm a "native American" myself.

What happened to the Natives is exactly what happened to ANYONE who LOST A WAR.

To guilt the victor years later for how he treats his past enemy is asinine.

I also notice that when ever people want to guilt the whites for the Natives, it's always, ALWAYS, America and not Canada, Mexico, or South America. lol

So, no this is no "snap judgement" this is logic and reasoning giving me discernment and the ability to see through bullshit. If I was a superhero I'd be called Anti-Bullshti Guy! lol

I labeled you a liberal because, like most liberals, you tend to follow a script of how to judge the "man", who tends to be white. lol

If you actually have family serving in the US military, you should honor their sacrifices better. And my meme in no way glorifies what was done to either side. :l

Your meme does not disparage any race either.. it makes a point. Slavery is still a big part Islamic culture.. an acceptable practice in Islam. Every culture I can think of participated in slavery. I'm surprised it did not bring more comments.. especially from black lives matter advocates. ;)

Genocide is kinda slightly a lot worse, or is that not part of your Putin IRA script?

1/16th Cherokee? What is is with that? I've literally never met a single person south & west of NJ who didn't claim to be part Cherokee. Like granny made it through thee Trail of Tears ok and went back east.

The point being that some tribes enslaved, some tribes were more vicious some tribes hunted and killed others as scouts for the government. Some is some, not all. I do believe that we all originated in the same area, we are all human beings imperfect from this planet. Yet a country founded on freedom of religion only allowed natives that freedom in 1976. If you actually have any interest research current conditions and also look into a program started by Bush in Texas that had Native children being used as lab rats for pharmaceutical companies, research the Lakota recent ruling that puts a stop to it on their children. Research the water pollution and battles around reservations and how all benefits are based on remaining on the reservation. So when you tell an Urban Native of all we get, we scoff, I have loans for my education. No free college and yes once back to work will pay full taxes.

I see the meme differently. I'm of mostly Irish descent.. the irish were common indentured servants.. slaves. At one time 80-90% of white anglos in America were enslaved that way. I don't carry a chip on my shoulder about it though. There is a lot of white guilt in this country.. and I have never seen my white privilege. I think that's what the meme speaks to.. it's historically accurate. The N. American Indians practiced slavery like every culture.. and it still goes on in Islamic cultures. It's in the Koran.

You don't see because your life is a normal amount of fair and unfair. I can only relate my personal experience. My mom was told to leave school in the tenth grade when it was no longer legally required for her to be there. When she married my dad (airforce white) he was really good to her and fun when he took her home to PA he became ashamed, blamed her for lacking status in the church for having to associate with black brothers due to the whites not wanting her near their wives. Wishing out loud about should have married a decent white woman that she ruined his life and she wanted to go but he said he would get the kids because she is Indian. Did not say one word in her defense when a doctor at the ER Said not to bring her there again because Indians carry disease. My personal experience the local tribe and the farmers had issues over water rights. I was not a member yet my sister was told at JCpenny upon applying for a job that she could apply when the farmers got their water. My cousin at age thirteen left her home with a girl that called her sis, who took her to a vehicle with two white men she fought to not get in the vehicles this was witness by one of our classmates. Brutally **ped and Murdered tortured according to the detective. These men and the women got off despite blood and hair in their trunk, despite that one wrote a 30 page confession, despite that the woman testified against for immunity, despite my classmates eyewitness testimony. The only thing of importance to the local paper was her blood alcohol level. Attending the trial my family were treated like criminals warned not to threaten or even look at the accused's family. As an adult I was out having a few drinks, I ran into another Native women that did not like me, she punched me in the face, we fought I was on top, her six foot four nephew grabbed me and held me while she beat me unconscious. The police refused to do anything because I had alcohol in my system, I was just a drunk Indian deserving of this assault.

I'm in Oregon, where I grew up, the population was mostly Caucasian & Native American, as a teen the Hispanic or Latino population increased several fold. There is a unity among all Spanish speaking communities at least when it come to political issues. Native Americans still cling to tribes which I think it is important to preserve tribal identity but it's time to support one another, find that unity. Even stranger to me is that Mexicans so thoroughly discarded their tribal affiliations that most do not even know or admit to ever having had any. They are not all Spaniards. Also the traditional Mexican culture they share was it developed fully after Spanish occupation? In the interest of fairness I do think that all of our children should be taught 2 languages starting in grade school. Europeans tend to look down on us for only speaking the one. I do at times resent being passed over for a job because I do not speak Spanish, I took 2 years of it but if you don't converse daily, you tend to forget. I was also quite upset when my son who is autistic was being teased in Spanish, he began to feel like everytime the other students spoke Spanish that it was to talk about him. He would yell speak English, then he started to get bullied for being racist. Was it really so hard to comprehend that a person having trouble processing stimulus might develop a trigger when he can't understand what is being said?

My Spanish is decent,.. army sent me language school.. my daughter is almost fluent.. 6 years of school. I agree in learning another language. . I don't believe schools should make an exception for illegal immigrants and set up special Spanish language schools only. By the way I am familiar with autism, my neighbor has an autistic child. And I am seriously against any bullying. I am also a firm believer that when someone migrates to America, they should consider themselves an American first. there is too much division in this country where people who immigrated do not care to immerse in American culture, even though that is the reason they claim to come here. I have seen Mexican flags being raised over an American flag. As a veteran and an immigrant myself, I do not believe in this.

Why would I not like white people? I'm half, I love my father & stepmother, I get the pressure he faced as half of a mixed marriage. My children are perceived white as are my grandchildren. It's not dirty laundry, it's injustice, knowing that your word is less valuable as is your life. I'm outspoken mainly because it is my goal to help Native American youth to help, kids with mental health issues as well as disabilities. You can scoff at my sharing part of my experience with you. That fine, I expect such, I could have given you less personal information, either way it would be rejected. I don't need or crave your acceptance though, so it does not matter. My goal here was only to attempt to bring some understanding.

Yeah, more bullshit. You're obviously trying to get emotional backing from other members with the way you type/speak.

If you weren't trying to get "acceptance" why have you commented so much? Most would have just said their opinion and left it at that. You had to go into thorough detail why you disagreed. You're obviously against my opinion and trying to convince me of yours.

And what "pressure" are you talking about? Life is hard for EVERYONE. Race doesn't make it any harder or easier. :l

I don't know, I started this account because I needed to laugh and hoped maybe I could do the same for others. Instead I find that half my time is spent trying to keep people from just being downright hateful or mean. If you think that Native Americans should be cool with colonization, mass genocide, imprisonment, & forced assimilation because some tribes warred and enslaved other tribes or because this faction did to that faction too. Then your logic is basically that people do God awful things to other people so hey you're not alone in being butchered & hunted like animals. All better? I mean what was the point of your meme other than to poke at or re-open a painful sore? What would really help or go a long way towards "getting over it" would be sharing something funny, laughter being some common ground that could have been shared. Instead you choose to make a statement designed to incite resentment, contempt, or at the very least derision between my two halves. Not Cool, Not Funny, and Why? Talking in a derogatory way about a group of people is not the way to make your point.

No one ever said that the Natives should be "cool" with anything. I'm pointing out that to demonize whites while not demonizing the Natives that did the same things is bullshit and hypocrisy.

And yeah, i am saying in a way that ALL HUMANS are capable of evil, not just the whites.

You know that my meme isn't poking at or reopening a painful sore. That's more of your placating to a emotional audience. The meme is pointing out that the Natives are just as "human" as whites. And we are ALL capable of great evil.

You may think the meme was "designed to incite resentment" as it's your opinion, but facts are facts. The Natives weren't angels/saints. They were just as evil as the whites you're trying to demonize.

You can keep claiming I'm being "derogative" towards Natives, but you're just mad that I don't believe the bullshit guilt trips against whites. And pointing out that the Natives are guilty of the same crimes as whites is not derogatory in any way. Stop trying to twist people's words/memes to suit your agenda. :l

I don't have an agenda. I responded to yours. I am aware of what is happening around me, that there is a resurgence of hate flowing out towards any that suggest it might be time to make equality among men a reality rather than a facade. The pure audacity to tell us that our ancestors were just as evil as those that hunted, murdered, and took all that made their lives worth living. Our history was not taught and your knowledge happens to be severely lacking. As I mentioned before the majority of North American tribes lived peacefully. We learned of the tribes that raided other villages and scouted for the ones seeking to hunt our ancestors in hiding, your attempt to generalize all in entirety as evil doers did not go unnoticed. The past cannot be changed but it is not up to you to tell these nations to get over it. There are still multitudes of injustices happening at this time, our children have the highest rate of suicides in the nation, our females are targeted the missing and murdered among our sisters is staggering with investigations or convictions practically non existent. Yes there is good and evil in every faction of humanity, that does not give you the right to dismiss our grief or our struggles as untrue just because you have closed your eyes to reality, stomp your feet and shout about how you don't see any of it, or worse, that we deserved it, just as surely as we deserve any injustice we face currently. I have no bitterness towards you for the actions of your ancestors, I would love to experience a culturally diverse society where all have basic human decency. Unfortunately, it is you personally and those like you, not your ancestors, that destroy my faith in humanity.

See? You're trying to make it seem like I'm insensitive to people being evil when I made a meme pointing out the the Natives committed atrocities as well. I never said that events lie the Trail of Tears was deserved or necessary or right though, so stop trying to make it sound like that already.

If a person points out a factual truth to you and others with the intent to equalize races and you respond by losing faith in humanity? Drama much? I find your lack of faith is disturbing. lol And the way you're accusing me of my ancestor's actions without even knowing for sure if any of mine had anything to do with any of those events.

Just so you know, I love the Native American cultures despite the **pe, murder, slavery, and war they were responsible for. Just like I love American culture and still love the US Constitution above all other forms of government/society/cultures. :l

Everything you just said is ironic when you have called me a manipulative liar on not only my personal experiences but also on the plight of my ancestors, and while you completely ignore the current issues I have mentioned. However you have shared some common ground. I love America as well, I have no desire to live anywhere else. I do see the US constitution if applied fairly to all citizens as a great accomplishment of men working together for the common good. It was meant as a protection for US citizens from the government to prevent Tyranny. However the government is now controlled by the corporations that pay for the campaigns. I'm not impressed with Trump paying for his own he is just a puppeteer that tossed aside his puppet to try to appear down to earth for the disappearing Middle Class as long as corporations are allowed to take jobs out of the country for cheap labor with no penalties the filthy rich will get richer and all the rest will get poorer. "Trickle Down" is a joke. So brilliant how they have us fighting amongst eachother. Blaming Eachother, blaming the poor, the migrants, the minorities, just don't look at the men behind the curtain. These are the ones pushing gun control, attacking the Constitution, another peice of of common ground is that I will fight to keep gun rights as I see removing guns from law abiding citizens as an attack on the Entire Purpose of the Constitution.

I never called you a manipulative liar. Those are your words. You're trying to seek sympathy through a false victimization though.

I didn't blame you for anything, that was you, again, blaming me for something my ancestors might/could have done.

I do agree about the 2nd Amendment. And I think that there is an agenda being pushed by a shadow faction that's using the UN to force a global government.

So yeah, maybe there's common ground, but my meme is still right. Natives did bad stuff, Europeans did bad stuff. Lets all try and cut back on the bad stuff. :l
