I read this
She is correct in all of her facts, but she left out some crucial details.
To start, one fact about Native Americans, is that they were all totally peaceful. It's not like they waged war or genocide on each other ever - period. Only white men - er uhm - actually - white heterosexual men are evil and capable of doing such things - especially if they are self-purported "nice guys". And of course - given this fact, they would never wage genocide against another race either.
Now, we all know that Christopher Columbus himself vowed to destroy the infidel Native Americans by chopping all of their noses off and then selling them into a slavery.
Christopher Columbus beating his wife with his BARE F*CKING HANDS, and breaking the rule of thumb laws in the day and age.
As far as the gently peace-loving Native Americans who farted rainbows, urinated cherry flavored soda and crapped jelly beans - they were the first culture to openly allow homosexuals into their military - even though they did not need a military because they were like totally peaceful and stuff.
Anyway, as we all know, only people who want to murder everybody they see celebrate Columbus day - because it does not represent the meeting of two different cultures who helped improve each other, but rather, a complete genocide of the good-natured peace loving
All joking aside. Look at her story carefully, follow the wikipedia links. There is no actual proof - just speculations, allegations and accusations against Christopher Columbus. I looked at the articles carefully. Who knows what happened back in those days.
Not knowing will not stop a young female fresh from academia from being extremely negative - especially towards the following sub-groups - MEN, Caucasian, HETEROSEXUAL (perhaps even CHRISTIAN too).
Please take note of the negativity in this one. She has the power of journalism in her hands - and how does she use it? To stir up hatred - hatred based not on facts - but on speculations and whatnot. How will writing such an inflammatory article (which is based on speculations, allegations and accusations) improve race relations?
It won't. So I ask you - who is the racist?
In addition to that, I could not find any indication in the speculations, allegations and accusations that Christopher Columbus was motivated by race hatred to begin with. Awkward to say the least that the scholars who have poisoned this young woman's mind seem to think it was - can you say "projection"?
If this woman cared about Native Americans at all, she would not be trying to start a race war with them by writing inflammatory bullsh*t.
If this woman cared about Native Americans, she would point out that young Native American MEN have the highest suicide rate.
Shelby Fleig - notice the logo for the College of Journalism in the background - it is RED, BLACK and WHITE - aren't those the same colors the Nazi's used?
Such things are of no interest to a young female journalist and avid member of the fourth Reich.
What does interest her - stirring up negativity and race hatred - that's what.
Shelby Fleig - A typical Anglobitch - so typical she is somewhat cliche!
The more "revolutionary" she claims to be - the more she simply re-enforces tired and worn out hatred among the races. What a dunce.
To any Native Americans reading this - if you are a young man - DO NOT COMMIT SUICIDE. If you have sons - have a talk with them - make sure they are not suicidal. Enough is enough.
What liberal arts professors in college should be doing - instead of stirring up racial hatreds (yawn - getting boring) - they should be doing research into WHY young Native American men have the highest suicide rate - and do something to put a stop to it. Pipe dream - yes - I'd wager a guess that they would simply find a way for young men of all races to have a suicide rate as high as the Native Americans - the f**ked up liberal idea of equality.
