Happy Holocaust Day!
Perhaps they should read the diaries of the Dominican Friar Bartolome de Las Casas, and then they might have an idea what a butcher Columbus and the Spanish really were.
A blog author that I generally like to read, though often disagree with, recently labled one of his posts Maybe Colonialism Wasn't All Bad After All. Hmm, I don't think my ancestors would agree.
If anyone has a reason to complain about illegal immigration, it is the indigenous people of the so-called "Americas."
"[The Indians] suffered and died in the mines and others in desperate silence, knowing not a soul in the world to whom they could turn for help."
And finally, two videos for your viewing pleasure that speak to the misinformed belief that Columbus Day is an honorable holiday (the 2nd video is really good if you can get past the music of the first two minutes or so).
Hmm, it all makes me wonder why any of us ever accepted Christianity?
There's an old story that makes the rounds in Indian Country, it goes something like this:
Missionary: If you do not accept Christ as your savior you will go to hell.
Chief: If you had never told me of this Christ, and I never knew of him, would I still go to hell?
Missionary: No you would not got to hell for it would not be your fault if I had never come or you never learned of Christ.
Chief: Then why did you tell me of him?
