Here are the real Americans:

Happy Indigenous Peoples Day!

Across the United States, there are 556 federally recognized American Indian and Alaska Native nations. Each one has it’s own unique history and culture. American education has not bothered to tell us that Native people lived in peace and effectively governed themselves before the Europeans came along. American education has not informed us that Native Americans have been slighted ever since, not even being recognized as citizens (despite the fact that they were here first) until the 20th century.

But we don’t have to push these facts aside. We can stop celebrating a man that began a genocide and a terrible theft of land and culture, and start celebrating Indigenous Peoples for their rich history and their equal contributions to society.

To all Indigenous Peoples out there: we’re glad you’re here!

We will stand with you in your continued battle to be recognized as legitimate human beings instead of the stereotypes perpetuated by Columbus and those that came after him.

"American education has not bothered to tell us that Native people lived in peace and effectively governed themselves before the Europeans came along. "

We did study this in high school.They were in no more or less peace as Europe Its a myth they were all peace loving hippies that did not regularly war.

The superior cultures at the time was India and China.

The rape of the Americas changed the equation and gave Europe the brutal skills it needed to overwhelm those great powers for a time.

We are living on the tailgates of that violent epoche.

If they were so superior why didn't they explore and set up shop in the Americas?

China and India were both marking time while the West was coming up with unprecedented improvements to human civilization, bringing essential physical inventions and philosophical outlooks to bear upon the world.

Without the West, Indians would still be shitting in the Ganges and Chinese people would still be kowtowing to some dude in a funny hat.

We rule.

Happy piss off Italians Day!

Now about those peaceful natives. One of the earliest (maybe the earliest) known and documented encounters between Europeans and natives in what is now the continental USA the natives saw a boat coming ashore. It is assumed they had heard about the atrocities that occurred on the islands Columbus and others visited so they decided to scare the Europeans away. When the captain got to shore the natives captured him and cooked him on the beach so all on the ship could see. They were not cannibals but they thought eating the captain would cause the Europeans never to return.

You know how the Sioux go on and on about sacred land and all that fun stuff? The land in question was actually stolen from another tribe. The Sioux at the time lived in what is now Ohio. There was a really bad winter in the west and the Sioux took advantage of a weakened tribe in what is now South Dakota and wiped them out taking their land.
