    i just got an e mail from my stepdad about some people who are petitioning to have national holidays to celebrate elected native american leaders and heros (geronimo, crazy horse) and i think thats a good idea. there should be some memory of the people, at least, since we pretty much wiped them off the face of the earth.

    i'd definitely celebrate it. we need to give them a fucking month where we all just chill. at least have a lot of holidays for them. i'd even be down for replacing:

    - easter (boring, gotta be with family)
    - thanksgiving (see above plus bad food)
    - valntines day (let's face it, hardly anybody gets the 'poon tang' this day)


    the native american holiday should be like spring break but longer, and should frown upon drunken frat jocks and sluts...

    yeah, I think a day is probably the least... I mean, we have Black History Month... also, I think there should be a celebration along the lines of black college reunion in daytona or freaknik in hotlanta...

    me being native american (from 3 different tribes nonetheless) would proudly support a national holiday. thanksgiving doesnt cut it. thats a holidy for you pilgrims. an if somebody doesnt get the ball movin, then the next white guy i see is gettin scalped. oh wait... im white too... fuck it im killin myself, im makin a statement, takin a stand, i dont even like myself anymore. screw you and you muskets, give me a bottle of firewater an im happy.

    but if you do take into context we did introduce tobacco to you "white devils" which means our job here is done. wheres my casino at?

    Yeah Id agree with that. I think a holiday would be a slap in the face. Its like 'yeah we killed your people, raped your women, infected you intentionaly with all sorts of fucked up diseases, stole your land, but hey, why dont we take next monday off and things will be all good!"

    Fuck that, US out of North America!

    I agree, there needs to be at least something. But I don't want people who are some ridiculously low percentage getting all wierd......

    Some guy who was 9/128ths native american came into a shop where I hang out, and started saying it was his land. He was drunk (actually had an indian card stating his percentage)....
