Meanwhile, another division of NBC is eager to wish you a cheerful holiday greeting: MSNBC: Thanksgiving’s About White Settlers Who Brought ‘Genocide and Violence.’
Many of us are still waiting for white Americans to bring some value — still waiting for white Americans to match the mythology of Thanksgiving. Freedom, justice, equality, reparations for two and a half billion acres of stolen Native land — reparations for 246 years of stolen labor — reparations for stealing Native children. Stop the killing — it’s still happening. Stop the theft — it’s still happening. Return the land — match the mythology. Then, and only then, we can all be equally thankful. Peace.
