    So when you see the 4 year old boy pull the little girl's hair...

  • Students:

    He likes her!

  • Me:

    Now they are around 11 or 12 and he grabs her arm and wrestles her to the ground even though she calls him a jerk and yells at him to leave her alone.

  • Students:

    That is just how boys are.

  • Me:

    Now they are 18 and he grabs her arm and--

  • Students:

    Oh, that's not okay.

  • Me:

    Really? How would he know? How would she know? How would you know? You just told me that for the first 17 years of these children's lives that you thought it was cute, sweet, and natural for a boy to grab a girl and be rough with her.

  • Students:

    Oh.

  • Me:

    Oh, is right.

    well, the total cost of me going to Med school is about 406 a year -

  • American Friend:

    THOUSAND?

  • French Friend:

    Um, no. 406 Euro. It sounds a little high but it covers the cost of my textbooks, extra classes and most of my housing. How much is it for you?

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.

What’s the point of even going to school when all they teach us is lies?


((also, if there’s a video similar to this but about the Native American history of Canada, please send me the link))

History is written by the victors, it takes centuries for bias to mostly fade

I notice how they don’t mention how the US also took the blankets from plague and small pox hospitals and traded them with the Native Americans for food hoping to exterminate them that way.

Get a European history book about America, they tend to be a lot more honest, The Enduring Vision by Paul S Boyer is a good place to start, it covers a lot so it’s in many ways a primer, but it’s the one the universities use. They reissue it with updates every year or so, but if you’re just educating yourself an old copy is just as good
