A farce? For wishing my country a happy birthday in its 400th year? How so?

This country was founded on genocide, not some fancy pilgrimage story. Columbus Day should be called Invasion Day. The story they teach kids is a farce.

The remaining indigenous people deserve better than what they've ever gotten.

So, you're saying you support the rioting, looting and pillaging that is happening... Got it.

Your cynicism has prevented you from researching the division between a general population of people and government colonialism....
Got it.

North America has been around way longer than 400 years! Maybe you need to pull up a dictionary
Face and farce are two very different words. 🙄

A sure sign you've lost the debate is when make yourself a spelling Nazi over a spelling error.
You're down. The autonomic reflex to carry on doesn't change that.

Well....you're almost there.
It tickles me to no end that you think I need educating, as if I didn't go to school or research history.
Have some more links you wanna learn me with?
I'd just rather have us share some birthday cake. After all, we don't want those native lives go completely to waste.

Maybe a better question would be "what's right with you"? ...lol

There's nothing wrong with me. Just wishing my country a happy birthday is all.
But something pure and simple as that apparently can't go unmolested by you.
The problem is yours and - oh -

I won't move if Trump gets reelected. At least not until things get a lot worse.

But if he loses but somehow manages to stay in office, then I will move.

No! We have to stay and fight to take our country back!That buffoon cannot win! He's made too many enemies, and broken too many law

So....when (or if) you get "our" country back, you'll be in a rush to return it back to

the remaining indigenous people (who) deserve better than what they've ever gotten.

I'd do away with "Columbus Day" for one thing, stop lying to kids about their ancestory... How would you feel if some nasty, hostile strangers walked into your house and declared that it's theirs now, and called that Day One?

Get this through your head -
Columbus was not the captain of the Mayflower ship....
Secondly, eliminating Columbus from the equation does not erase the historical fact of migration (or "Pilgrimage") from England, Europe or other high northeast counties of civilian peoples, to north (or south) America.

You have a lot of cognitive dissonance when it comes to native Americans and a majority of them really don't care for people who try to "apologize" to them on behalf of the white race.

I've lived in Alaska over 40 years and there's a few things you should know;
Tribes are generally sovereign - they get what they want and Native Corporations oversee their people's interest - this is a fact hidden from you. They get any land they want in the natural region of their boundaries in any quantity they want....
So, when you roll into a village and see "how sad" the few remaining natives live, you should ask yourself 'where are the rest of them?'

Where? Where are you? Why, living in the big cities and in urban housing. Getting an education, holding down jobs and making money (on top of dividends they already get from their corporations).

They don't want to go back to the village, they don't want to roll back to prehistoric times - they like the "white mans world," because it is just as much their world too.

Your simplistic explanation may satisfy a 4th grader, but there's far more to it than that.

Wow-weeee! You have got to be the most intelligent and oldest middle-school girl I ever met - and thank you for pencil whipping another link to "learn me gooder."

The article of the link basically starts off by saying; "The age of the United States depends on how you want to measure it."
The article goes on to provide a list of different events (or narritives) by which you could determine the age of the U.S.
👉I chose👈 the narrative of the Plymouth Rock landing of the SS Mayflower in 1620.
AND in case you weren't paying attention (because you weren't), that was a significant historical event that WAS NOT listed among the narratives....

But, let's face the real truth JJ, it wouldn't have mattered what narrative I chose, your sense of entitlement will still have lead you to ****shit-bomb my Post anyway.

The real farce here is your avatar name, "jjlove" Might I suggest you change it to something that's more fitting to your demeanor (opinion with-held).

Put on your big girl shorts and try something novel - take responsibility for your own actions - if your time was wasted, you did it yourself.
