THE TRUTH OF NATIVE AMERICANS BEFORE THE GENOCIDE

Gotta put this on blast.
We never needed a white savior.

I hate this country.

What I learned from this video:

  • 100 million Native Americans died at the hands of white colonists
  • Instead of planting crops the colonists spent their days digging random holes in the ground looking for gold. They started starving and dug up Indian corpses to eat. They took Indian prisoners and forced them to teach the colonists how to farm
  • Native Americans had massive cities with tens of thousands of well constructed houses, intricate water canals and large merchant areas.
  • The Native Americans used soaps, deodorants and breath sweeteners while colonists never bathed or even took of their clothes
  • There was a delousing policy with the mantra Nits create Lice; nits being Native American babies, so their goal was to kill every Indian, including babies 
  • In the 1700’s 80% of the Federal Budget went towards eradicating the Native American population so they could take their developed farmland
  • Colonists leaders went town after town killing men women and children under the approval of George Washington
  • "Pursue Indians to extermination" -Thomas Jefferson
  • California governor (1849-1851): “extermination must continue to be waged until the Indian becomes extinct”

The main factor which prevented Native American extinction was the fact they were used for slave labor. The most prized Native Americans were young girls who were said to be valued for labor and lust (that one white dude in your ethnic studies class that says he’s 1/36th Cherokee?)

In modern times children were forced into Indian Boarding Schools whose goal was to “Kill the Indian in them”. It was federal policy. They were beaten if they used their native tongue, they were forced to dress and style their hair like whites 

This country was literally built on terrorism and mass murder. White people are savage terrorists.

Until, this is taught in schools everywhere- “history class” is merely a racism propaganda course.


And that’s why “sorry” will never be good enough.

It says something about how much I’ve worn my tophat that I could make everyone incredibly uncomfortable during the month of September when I wasn’t wearing it.

Case in point: Five people I’ve never met before have come up to me so far today and said they were happy to see me wearing the tophat again.

Can we please just tell every middle schooler this instead of making them feel embarrassed by their existence and their need to try new things? It would be much nicer to hear this through middle school and high school than it is to hear about how dumb your phase or whatever is and how much you’ll regret it in a year.

Damn, every time I see this go by my dash, it has, like, 10K more notes.  I’m awed by how much it seems to have meant to so many people, and incredibly moved to see so many notes saying that this has mattered.

I wish I’d been told this.

***URGENT PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT***
Grindr, a popular app for gay men, now carries an urgent warning for users in Egypt. According to many sources, Egyptian authorities are posing as LGBT people on various social media sites to identify and arrest homosexual people. The app is urging users in the region to proceed with extreme caution, especially when identifying themselves or arranging meetings/hookups. While so far the focus seems to be on gay men, all LGBT people in the area should be cautious. Reports show that Egyptian police have carried out violent raids on private homes which lead to the arrests of several gay men. These men were then subjected to disturbing medical “exams.” Police also raided an LGBT party last year, violently arresting many and sentencing them to up to 12 years hard labour. While homosexuality is not illegal in Egypt, athorities are using sexual deviance, debauchery and insulting public morals as terms for the crackdown. Many claim this fresh attack on the LGBT community is lead by President Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi who wishes for his country to be more Islamic.
For all of my LGBT friends here on tumblr, please be extremely careful as this situation develops. Remember to clear your search history, use private browsing if possible, and be extremely cautious with who you talk to online.

Over 700 Jefferson County High School students are staging walkouts and protests over proposed changes to the Advanced Placement History curriculum. According to Colorado Public Radio:

Last week, a school board member proposed that advanced placement history classes be required to promote free enterprise and patriotism and be required to avoid classroom materials that encourage social strife or civil disobedience. Two high schools in Jefferson County closed Friday after dozens of teachers called in sick in protest.

According the online petition to be delivered to the School District:

Jeffco Public School Board has just proposed a change of curriculum stating that, “Materials should not encourage or condone civil disorder, social strife or disregard of the law. Instructional materials should present positive aspects of the United States and its heritage.”

This means that important parts of our history such as the Civil Rights Movement, Native American genocide, and slavery will not be taught in public schools. If these important lessons are not taught, children will not learn from them, and what will stop them from happening again? This is a severe form of censorship intended to keep the youth ignorant and easy to manipulate. I’m hoping to get enough signatures to prove that this is a public issue, so, please, if this is important to you, please sign. Do not let our youth grow up in ignorance; we all deserve the truth!

You can sign the petition here.

You can read more articles at The Denver Post, CBS Denver (with video), and Colorado Public Radio.

What is this Student Strike and why is it happening in Hong Kong?
On 31st August 2014, the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress (NPCSC) made a decision on issues regarding the methods of election of the Chief Executive of HKSAR as well as the members of the Legislative Council of HKSAR in the years 2017 and 2016 respectively. The nomination of the Chief Executive, which holds the highest authority in Hong Kong, will be made by the Election Committee of the 2012 Chief Executive Election, but not the general public. This means that our choices for the Chief Executive is filtered by the Chinese government, and this violates the one country, two systems agreement that we have with China. 
The students in Hong Kong are striking at peace, with non-violent behaviours, yet the police are adamant in removing them from PUBLIC grounds by force, arresting our fellow classmates and using violence.
I understand that most of you may not live in Hong Kong, but the situation here is grave. We do not want a repeat of the Tiananmen Massacre and we are urging the government to release the arrested students.
Those who are not participating in the strike has currently been cut off from live feed from our major TV station and we are scared that this means the police will be stepping up their forces in removing students from the strike. 
Please support Hong Kong by signing our petition: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/support-hong-kong-democracy-and-prevent-second-tiananmen-massacre-hong-kong/dfdCpQZz
I have seen Tumblr work miracles, and I hope that you can help us too.

Please, please, please sign this petition and help the people of Hong Kong. These protestors are literally students, HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS, peacefully protesting because all they are asking for is voting rights they were promised.
This is by no means even a inch worth close to what happened Ferguson, but these people need help too. Some of us have family out there and I asking for you all to at the very least, sign this petition asking for it to be considered and for the rights of the Hong Kong people to be taken into account. At the very least let the people of Hong Kong know that their struggle is not alone.

Tumblr recommended an accounting blog to me. It is glorious. (And yeah, I guess it applies more to auditors for public firms than the government auditors, but it’s still funny.)

So, a guy from Auditing told me that I couldn’t slam former classmates with audits once I become the commissioner of the IRS because they could sue for malicious prosecution.

…aren’t you the same guy who, like less than a minute ago, was asking me to slam your ex with one when I got hired and that high up the ranks?

Yeah… I’ll just leave that there.

I just want everyone to know, I exercised an admirable amount of self-restraint during this lecture. I did not say or do anything that got me dirty looks from the guest lecturer, and I did not get kicked out of class for saying anything too snarky either.

I think I’d make this guy cry if I told him I was learning to be an auditor because I wanted to make people cry, not make money. (Although, ngl, the money’s a nice bonus.)
