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.

Things to marinate on this “holiday” weekend

White folks were so f***ing savage

THEY dug up corpses to EAT,

But somehow, the Natives got stuck with the word “savage”.

Debbie Allen’s “The Hot Chocolate Nutcracker” Wins 7th Annual Goldstar National Award

Debbie Allen’s Dance Academy, which competed with nearly 60 other Nutcracker productions across the country, will receive a cash prize to benefit the organization’s educational programs, and bragging rights since it was declared ‘the best-loved Nutcracker in the U.S.’ This is another win for the Debbie Allen Dance Academy who took home The Nutty in 2010 as well.

The Hot Chocolate Nutcracker, starred Debbie Allen and Carlo Imperato, but also included Mariah Carey, Arturo Sandoval, Chau-giang Thi Nguyen, James Ingram and Thump as part of the creative team. 

The Hot Chocolate Nutcracker gives the seasonal favorite a rich new cultural context and updated characters, and features a lively contemporary score with original songs from multiple-Grammy-winner Mariah Carey and others. After young Kara receives a nutcracker filled with hot chocolate, she falls asleep and journeys to enchanted lands, including Candy Cane Lane, Egypt, the Rainforest, Jazzland, Russia and the Land of the Kimono Dolls. Little ones will have no trouble following along thanks to the narration by three wisecracking mice: Harvey, Schmink and Buckey. Allen herself appears in this fun holiday musical adventure.

Previous winners of “The Nutty” Statuette include: The Joffrey Ballet’s The Nutcracker in 2011 and 2012; Debbie Allen Dance Academy, The Hot Chocolate Nutcracker in 2010; Boston Ballet’s The Nutcracker in 2009; The Kirov Ballet’s The Nutcracker in 2008; and The House Theater of Chicago’sThe Nutcracker at the Steppenwolf Theatre in 2007.

ghetto is not synonymous with black

…yes is it. Don’t be fooled.

Super fuckin tried it.

Failed ever so properly, though.

MAYBE if they stopped wearing polos, yoga pants, and Uggs, they would earn our respect during this tragic crime!

Look, I’m not a reverse racist.  I have white family members and friends.  But if the white community needs to get this stuff under control, we need to make sure white children aren’t growing up in this destructive culture.

Tuh! well MAYBE if they weren’t so LAZY and did well in school they wouldn’t be such thugs! I MEAN, look at me! *I’ve* worked hard for everything I’ve gotten, they have no excuse!!!

THEY’RE NO ANGELS, THATS FOR SURE!
