Let’s not forget what this day really is.
For white people, this is a day of celebration, as the Indians saved the Puritans, through their own stupidity, nearly starved themselves. Squanto saved their asses, and the gratitude that Squanto and his nation received was nothing more than European diseases and racial genocide.
It didn’t take long for the Christians to show their true agenda-murder, rape, and theft; of land, of resources, and of culture.
By 1675, King Philip (Metacom), Massasoit Ousemequin’s son, fought the Puritans and came out of the losing end of the war, and the rest is just a simple roller coaster drop to the floor. He was beheaded by the British in the summer of 1676 and his people were sold into slavery.
Whites were never really thankful for much. They always wanted more than what they had-and they never expressed any qualms about stealing from the weaker. It is more than three centuries later, and whites steal from the disabled and those of other of races.
This is what the white man is-and he does it in the name of his lord and savior (which are intentionally in lower case), Jesus Christ.
For this is the true story of Thanksgiving; not of giving, but of taking without asking-just ask any Indian nation we destroyed over the past four centuries!
Is this the “God in America” that the conservatives want? Then this is not the God we need. We need an Entity of compassion, not of theft, murder, and lies. However, it may be wiser of us to ignore entities altogether. All worship does is put us under the spell of a criminal.
You go and celebrate whatever the hell you want tomorrow. I may eat, but not in heart. My spirit with those whom we murdered.
