The Thoughts of an Educated Young African American Male

Thanksgiving Thoughts

It is ironic is it that on Thanksgiving, American news outlets want us to be thankful for our troops fighting over seas. What’s ironic about that? This holiday is based on the imperialistic notions of our (their) forefathers who wanted to take over the North American continent and were thankful that the very people they wanted to concur, Native Americans,  saved their lives and aided in their mission.

 

Now, as we celebrate Thanksgiving, the news want us to thank our troops for fighting a war and taking over yet another civilization.  I hope the troops are safe, and I am not thankful for another war our country has found its way in. Have a happy holiday.
