Many Americans will spend the day eating and watching TV, while claiming to be thankful for some thing or another – probably ill-gotten gains. To those, we say Happy Thanksgiving.
Others will spend the day lamenting how early Americans murdered the Native Americans and took their land. To those, we say thanks. It’s hard to say Happy Thankstaking when remembering one of the most shameful human tragedies in history.
So spread the word; remind everyone how the white men unleashed genocide on the Native Americans, including intentionally spreading deadly smallpox. Remind them how the Native Americans were forced from their lands and sent on death marches across the nation multiple times under brutal conditions.
Let’s all feel ashamed today and everyday. Thankstaking indeed.
