Don’t get me wrong I love the holiday season and the whole “Getting together to eat with the family”, but the basic fundamental reasons we celebrate holidays such as thanksgiving, and christmas seem to have some shrouded secrets, or just blatant miss-information. First of all Thanksgiving is in celebration of European colonists that conquered the American continent and enslaved an entire population of Native Americans. Likewise a lot of people like to explain thanksgiving as if it was all peaceful and great ! Well i’m here to tell you, and all that read that this is not the correct story. It went more a long the lines of this, Christopher Columbus, and said europeans showed up thinking the American continent was really the Indian sub continent, and this is why we still call Native American’s (Indians) at least some of us. After we slaughtered, raped, and pillaged villages, towns, and gatherings we then turned the left over “indians” into slave’s and made them prepare us their foods and delecacies so the european colonists could hi-jack all these wonderful Native American delecaceis and keep for themselves. It is important that we never forget that this is the true history of the situation. Ofcourse since we have won all the wars and were allowed to re-write all the history we made it sound all nice and pretty. For one I will never be a parent or a fellow citizen that tries to pass a long false information, and that is why this article isn’t that big. It is basic: Instead of coming here and being nice and sharing with the Native Americans, We enslaved and turned them into servants and in return they served us thanksgiving, and we have enjoyed ever since.
