quote “That’s all right,” she says, and I have to wonder how many times she’s said that to the people in her life who screwed her over somehow.

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.

I’m so glad more and more people are realizing this. I’ve known about this ever since eighth grade and did my research paper on Native Americans. I read from all these different sources and one thing was always constant: European colonists are the worst fucking thing in history

Goodnight

"Goodnight"
It’s all you say anymore
I know you too well
you always have more
to say
time
money.
How, When, Why,
did I ever catch your eye?
I don’t know how to get by
Believe me I’ve try’d
still am, but it an’t good enough
don’t think I’ll ever be
Enough!
What used to make me feel
anything,
Now makes me feel like shit.
I don’t know myself now
Because I don’t want to
"be me".
I want to be better,
all that you need.
To push what you say to reality
your time as a legacy
your money, well all Your money
I’d give you mine if I had any.
I just want to help my brother and
"Love You".
"Goodnight".
It feels worse than goodbye.
Sad part is
We feel the same
You and I
Someone’s just better.
You’re the iron
while their gold.
You are precious to me
more than either (iron or gold)
I’ll be the fire
If God is the mold
To build up your dream
Not encase it and
melt it at the seams…
Can you only see me like that?
My fire to see you succeed
or me just being naive
as some unseen trap
or plot of betrayal?
I guess every dream has it’s fear
nightmare
Good night … and sweet dreams

very chilling topic on twitter right now. 

i have my own reasons for #WhyIStayed, and looking through this hashtag, i can see so many women and men who were lost, just as i was.

i stayed because it was the first time i felt important to anyone. he “loved” me. when he said he would die if i left him, i thought it passionate. when he started showing up unannounced at my house, because my friends told him my brother’s friends were over, i thought the jealousy was endearing.

then he tried to kill himself when i left town for two days. he was convinced that i would find someone else, in a town where i knew no one. i came back home, and promised i would never leave.

the manipulation and emotional abuse became physical—but only once. he slammed me against a wall after i made a joke about dumping him once i started college. i hid the bruises from my family, for weeks. that was the moment i decided to get out, no matter what happened. for some people, it only takes one time. others need more than one. and some people never make it out alive.

it is not always easy to “just leave.” it is a blessing if you are able to leave, with no consequences.

This is so, SO important.

Also try #WhyILeft it’s good too
