    What do you think? Is Thanksgiving racist? And how familiar were you with its history?

      It is incredible how much flack (or praise) White Anglo-Saxon Protestants (WASPS) receive today because of the persuasive interpretations delivered to American youth by educators in a position of trust (power, authority, influence, responsibility). Without hearing strong reasoning from both sides of every issue, students become conditioned to behave predictably, one-sidedly. Unfortunately, these students and many adults do not realize they are parroting the interpretations of others instead of truth. Many are unaware that what is personally convenient or feels good does not necessarily equate to truth.

      All this to say, the Spanish and the British came to the Americas — according to various historians. In the Americas: settlements, trade, war, and disease took the lives of many men, women and child on all sides. The weaponry, immunity, and ideas of the European settlers prevailed. The European colonists in America and European imperialists in Africa, Asia and Australia prevailed. It was the prevailing survivors who wrote the tale. Now, English language and the US Dollar, as well as Capitalism and Judeo-Christian values of the West (Asia) are the prominent currency and commodity around the globe, and envied by most.

      At one time, it was Egypt. Another time, China. Rome has its day, too. Various cultures have produced great works of art, in depth philosophies as well as enlightening spiritual practices. Great leaders, mathematicians, artists, athletes, military, and insights have come from every corner of the globe. However, today it is the USA that is supreme. The USA, like many empires before it, has inherited the accumulated wisdom and practices of the empires before it. And, like those empires, the USA cannot live forever. But, is short-sighted and self-loathing to hate everything American, or representative of American national and patriotic feeling because of past or present wrongs occurring in America. We need to do better, sure. But, let’s not forget the progress made here by the heterogeneous group here, and let’s ALL take pride in our biodiverse tribe and home.

        Instead of the drive for furthering our understanding of sciences of space or perhaps solving the coming food and energy crisis. We are putting that into finding anything that is offensive. This is 'the filter' that will truly end humanity. I just hope I am wrong.

            People in 2019 seem to want to find some “noble grief” to complain about and cry over, claiming victimhood for themselves, or for others.

            The argument for reparations (because something is, today, deemed to have been unfair to persons of the past, some injustice happened, so people today, that did not experience those events, should gain monetarily, via reparations) is grossly without merit and hinders character development and progress. The US cannot change the past by tearing down statues, or paying descendants money. Are we going to start paying children with poor health because their parents chose to live in ways that tarnished their health and then passed those health traits to their children?

            Let’s not educate all kids to believe they are victims and must be seen as special, and exempt. It’s illogical and foolishness to play “God” as to the judgment bar, as if we are going to perfect this planet by way of human nature, pretending we have perfect understanding and the capacity to root out all evil. As long as there is freedom, there will be opportunity and opposition in this place.

            This place is all about opposition, struggle and a battle between good and evil; it’s a school. It’s not eternal. People really need to start spending more time working on their own character as opposed to trying to point the finger at the world or their neighbors, etc., crying foul and injustice and name calling as a 2019 social justice warrior. Those individuals are incredibly hypocritical and full of contention; and that’s not inspiring anyone to righteous behavior.

            People like the second interviewer present a pessimistic view of history focusing and rehashing and reopening old wounds, chewing on old bones as opposed to feasting on the continuing progress of our world. They want to live in the past, focused entirely (for example) on the bombing of Pearl or the concentration camps, as opposed to celebrating what happened next, V-day; the defeat of Germany, Japan and the “axis of evil”.

            “An acknowledgment” will never be enough for these people, because they will starve without something new to contend and argue. They have a spirit of constant contention.

                                          it's very telling with the first woman that she says "we don't have the right to go into other civilizations and tell them what they are doing is wrong and what they believe in", but has no problem looking back 300-400 years and judging white Europeans. You can't judge acts of the past with standards of today...its not fair. Times change and thinking changes as well. Most of history is acts of invading/conquering and this notion of peace and civility is very 20th century new...and thank the white European descendants here in America for that.

                                              It's just so sad and sick how all these ppl are taught white ppl and in particular white European settlers are the evil of this world. Yes immigrants helped build this country and true Americans love that but we would not be here without the forefathers, and they were white European settlers, it's just the facts. Without Washington, Adams, Franklin and Jefferson the lot of us might be living under indentured slavery since birth. Wake the f-up. SMH. It's like they don't even want to admit it's not okay to disturb a culture that's ripping out innocent people's hearts and offering them up to the "sun god", SJWs to the fucking end, sad clowns.

                                                It seems like most of these people overlook literal interpretations in favor of insinuations and trying to add all of these hidden meanings to simple statements. Crowder could say I like apples and they would find some way to say that liking apples means that he hates Jewish people or something equally crazy.

                                                      Wait. Waitwaitwait...So, it's acknowledged our country is built on immigration and assimilation by people of different cultures. But it's not okay to expect people of some certain other cultures to change when they get here. What I'm confused about here is what the criteria is for exactly who should be exempt from the expectation of adopting American national ideals.
