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.

This took the better part of the evening and I have no idea what possessed me to do this. Maybe, it was a fever dream? 
Anyway, there are so many nostalgia-themed YouTube channels and personalities out there (many of which, I’m a fan), and I thought I’d take shots at these people who are far more talented and charismatic than I.
This strip took so much planning to make the panels reflect Michael Jackson’s Beat It music video to the best of my ability. Ironically, the lyrics just flowed from me and I quite literally made them up as I went along. I’m just surprised that it flows so well. 
Anyway, here’s my shout-out to these talented people who’ve made me laugh for years. Featured here are the Angry Video Game Nerd, Doug Walker (the The Nostalgia Critic), Andre (Black Nerd Comedy), Joe and Dave (Game Sack), Pat the NES Punk, and Mark & Derek of Classic Game Room.

The Room has its own porn parody, and we’ve got the exclusive (SFW) trailer
