Seattle is one of America’s whitest places, but the city’s School Board wants to show the world, or at least their one minority friend, that they’re far more tolerant than those posers down in Portland.
Last week they declared Columbus Day will now be known as Indigenous Peoples’ Day because “Seattle is built upon the homelands and villages of the Indigenous Peoples of this region, without whom the building of the City would not have been possible.”
How would it have not been possible, again? Seattle was founded by American pioneers in the 1850s, and the first Indian involvement in the city was when they attacked it in 1856 and were fought off by settlers and Marines from the U.S. Decatur.
I’m tired of this revisionist history nonsense where liberals try to assuage their consciences by taking some great moral stand while not actually doing anything.
Native Americans are the country’s poorest minority, have the lowest life expectancy and highest suicide rate, so if you pricks really want to make a difference, then get out there and get your soft little hands dirty.
Personally, I couldn’t give a shit and would just give them some smallpox blankets and let the problem sort itself out, but that’s just me.
