Those Evil European Settlers... | michael820's Blog
So here we are another Thanksgiving day and already the picture meme's are flying around on how the evil European settlers have come to new world with the intent of raping, pillaging and others wise steal everything from the Native American settlers. Honestly! is this what you think our ancestors came over on ships like the MayFlower (The Pilgrims), Discovery, GodSpeed or the Susan Constant (Jamestown). That they came over with their sights set on how best they can screw over the Native Americans. Let us forget the fact that the Native Americans did infact welcome those new settlers with some suspicion but also with open arms.
That in most cases they helped the settlers weather the first years here in this New World. It has only been through the years that we those settlers exploited a people that we considered friends. I choose to recognize this day as one of Thanks that thanks to those early Native Americans who through their sense of decency extended the hand of friendship and that one our early ancestors accepted with the same hand. For those of you who wish to dwell in the mistaken belief that we came here to screw the Natives over, I feel pity for you at your small minded world view. But I leave you to it.
