As most of you know I’m taking a class at Santa Monica College on Race and Gender in the Media. One of the assignments is to reply to another student on a post they’d made on something they’d seen in the media and their view on the topic.
Naturally I won’t reveal their name or post their entire comment but I did respond to the following:
“because of the whites with their rich history that we are where we are today. For example, the founding of the United States of America. They created the best country in the world by giving everyone freedom and a voice”
Yes, it’s absolutely something to be proud of thanks to the Illegal Immigrant White Settlers, America can boast to hold the title of having the largest genocidal depopulation in the world killing 90% of the 100 million plus No. American Indians, wiping out 500 1st Nation American Tribes, and a 200,000 year old civilization disappearing.
An estimated 80 million 1st Nation Peoples died in the years following the European invasion, due to diseases brought to this continent by White Europeans including, but not limited to bubonic plague, chicken pox, pneumonic plague, syphilis, cholera, diphtheria, influenza, measles, scarlet fever, smallpox, typhus, tuberculosis, and whooping cough.
“Indian Removal”, “clearing” “ethnic cleansing” the military’s slaughter of tribal villages, bounties on native scalps; White Settlers distributing 100 thousand blankets intentionally contaminated with smallpox to 1st Nations people. The massive slaughtering of buffalo in the 1800s, “Take away food, you take away the means of survival” ; an estimated 31,000,000 buffalo were killed between the years of 1868 and 1881 with only 500 buffalo left by the year of 1885.
The Trail of Tears alone recorded only 4,000 of the estimated 25,000 deaths. Massacres carried out by Illegal Immigrant White Settlers and Military exterminated an additional 23,000 plus Indians’.
It was illegal to practice our religious beliefs until Aug. 11, 1978 when the American Indian Religious Freedom Act was passed to protect and preserve the traditional religious rights and cultural practices of American Indians, Eskimos, Aleuts and Native Hawaiians; which included, but was not limited to, access to sacred sites, freedom to worship through ceremonial and traditional rights, and use and possession of objects considered sacred; HOWEVER these laws were not implemented until 1983, a full 5 years later. Meanwhile 100’s of natives stayed in prison while Whites continued to steal our land for uranium fracking and oil.
“They created the best country in the world by giving everyone freedom and a voice”
“The unique way the United States unites its citizens through their differences”
America was built on the back of Native Americans and Blacks; these are things EVERY White American should be ashamed of, certainly not proud of.
By the way, the term “Final Solution” was not coined by the Nazis. It was Indian Affairs Superintendent, Duncan Campbell Scott, Canada’s Adolph Eichmann, who in April 1910 plotted out the planned murder to take care of the “Indian problem”.
101 Massacres – 23,000 plus, 1st Nation Peoples Exterminated by White Settlers and Military
