Thanksgiving should be renamed National "Hey, Native Americans, we're cool, right?" Day.


Just a thought, a friend of mine mentioned it.

It's sad that our nation is founded by and run with hypocrites at the helm, but whatever. I laughed at the epic truth of that comic.

And a friend of mine said that thanksgiving should be called "Let's all celebrate stealing our land from the natives and stuff our faces even though there are millions of starving children across the world but it's okay because we're celebrating, right?" day.

I'm a Native American and I find your opinion to be stupid. Most "stealing land" was done during conflicts which began with Indians slaughtering women and children. Do you think Jackson's Indian Removal policies were unprovoked? What would you do in response to Cherokees violating the treaties they agreed to and raiding peaceful farming communities. Don't fall back on your "education" from grade school where you were taught lies by those people too stupid to get into grad school.

One of our most famous politicians of India lalu prasad is pretty famous for his accent and Wierd style *his followers like to call it Charisma* He never passed 7th (We have 10+2 and then graduation and stuff),.

But some 2-3 years back he got the Business man of the Year award in India. This shows education is not everything...

P.S I consider him stupid in nearly every topic he speaks on though as he comes up with really Dumb and pathetic ideas most of the time ....
