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.

Things to marinate on this “holiday” weekend

White folks were so fucking savage

THEY dug up corpses to EAT,

But somehow, the Natives got stuck with the word “savage”.

White people still suprised

Remember her name and face.
Too many Native women don’t get their stories shared. Too many Native women are forgotten. 
Remember her. Remember them.
Rest in peace, Misty.

it pisses me off when crowley calls sam “samantha” quit trying to demean him by using the female version of his name.

“Let’s examine a traditionally male-dominated role that is very well-respected, and well-paid, in many parts of the world — that of a doctor. In the UK, it is listed as one of the top ten lucrative careers, and the average annual income of a family doctor in the US is well into six figures. It also confers on you significant social status, and a common stereotype in Asian communities is of parents encouraging their children to become doctors.

One of my lecturers at university once presented us with this thought exercise: why are doctors so highly paid, and so well-respected? Our answers were predictable. Because they save lives, their skills are extremely important, and it takes years and years of education to become one. All sound, logical reasons. But these traits that doctors possess are universal. So why is it, she asked, that doctors in Russia are so lowly paid? Making less than £7,500 a year, it is one of the lowest paid professions in Russia, and poorly respected at that. Why is this?

The answer is crushingly, breathtakingly simple. In Russia, the majority of doctors are women. Here’s a quote from Carol Schmidt, a geriatric nurse practitioner who toured medical facilities in Moscow: “Their status and pay are more like our blue-collar workers, even though they require about the same amount of training as the American doctor… medical practice is stereotyped as a caring vocation ‘naturally suited‘ to women, [which puts it at] a second-class level in the Soviet psyche.”

What this illustrates perfectly is this — women are not devalued in the job market because women’s work is seen to have little value. It is the other way round. Women’s work is devalued in the job market because women are seen to have little value.”

so like, “give me all your books about demons,” there are pretty much two options for cole right now, besides being arrested for bleeding on the nonfiction, which are:

a.) absolutely nothing because this is a public library sir

b.) a dogeared stack of paperback editions of all the supernatural books

they’re really gonna regret letting him live

story time about some relevant library history

After the great Chicago fire people were sending books to help rebuild the Chicago library. One of the crates from England had a book in it about the occult. This book was considered so evil that it scared people, they were even afraid of destroying it, so they put it in the donation crate to get it out of the country. When Chicago discovered the book a lot of people wanted it burned. But the library said no, it’s a book and it needs to be saved. After that everyone started sending the Chicago library their evil books that they were afraid to destroy. The Chicago library started a forbidden books section to save that knowledge from disappearing

So it’s possible that Cole stumbled into a library with a similar collection and will come out ready to punch evil in the face

Reblogging again because history

Important Hannah things from 10x02:

  • Hannah healing Cas
  • Hannah needing Cas to clarify after he said she did something human. "It’s a compliment" 
  • Hannah being genuinely surprised by the kindness the woman towing their car showed them
  • Hannah not getting human jokes and making the cutest faces because of it 
  • I understand the three beans but… What’s the surprise?
  • Hannah covering Cas with his trench coat
  • Hannah caring about Cas and looking out for him and going to Metatron even though she knew how badly it could end if she got his help 
  • Hannah taking NO SHIT and smashing Metatron’s head against the bars of the jail cell 
  • "Watch your mouth" !!!!!!
  • Hannah listening to what Cas had to say about his fate and his choices and respecting that he didn’t want to work with Metatron and letting him make that choice for himself 
  • Hannah growing and clearly beginning to experience human emotions and taking one more step towards free will 

I want Cas and Hannah to be the kind of siblings who are also bffs and totally love and trust each other and it’s a healthy relationship
