Time to be a buzzkill: While we all get our turkey for Thanksgiving,

let's stop and remember all the people that have been fucked over by the country that we conveniently whitewash over at this time of gluttony, namely the Native Americans.

My mother is 100% full blooded Mohawk. She sarcastically calls Thanksgiving either "National Holiday for the Whitewashing of Native American Extermination" or "National Native American Cultural Genocide and Mass Murder Day."

While we all "give thanks," remember how the Native Americans are still fighting the lies of white Government's promise of sovereignty in North Dakota against a militarized police force doing the bidding of its governmental and corporate masters.

Gobble Gobble!
