I'm Native American, but I ******* love Thanksgiving.
I get to stay home from school and eat way more than I should.

Columbus Day, on the other hand, is ******* stupid.

Sadly, I have encountered people who don't just celebrate it to get another day off, but actually think Columbus "discovered" America.
My older brother has actually had a girl say to him, "Oh, you're one of those Indians that Columbus discovered!"
She was completely serious.

Really? I don't think we even get Columbus day off anymore, maybe that's just California.

Columbus day is a celebration of the genocide on the noble Native Americans, whether they be North American, Aztec, Mayan or Incan. The genocides on these peoples, are a true shamespot on humanity.

I thought it was a celebration of a guy who got lost, found some islands, got 40 or so of his men killed (along with some natives) defending a pointless little fort, beached and sank one of his ships, and came back claiming to have found a whole new world. He also never set foot on the mainland, but did sail close enough to see Florida one time, which means he was too retarded to think the endless expanse of land to his right was worth checking out.

When the first british pilgrims came to what is now the United States, they had no idea how to do anything. They were welcomed by the Native Americans that lived there. They taught them how to plant on the land and what animals could be eaten. Then when the harvest came they had a big feast.

Thats what we celebrate. Everyone chooses to forget what happened next.

Manifest Destiny. The belief that the settlers were entitled to everything from the east coast to the west. They took the land by any means and killed off (intentionally and unintentionally by disease) the vast majority of the Natives that helped them survive in the first place.

the constant war or occupation  since the landing of Columbus , the Native  population dropped at a rate  90% to 95% from that of 3 million Average from each population in the North and south American continents   which only left  between 10% to 5 %  alone in American territory . Many Native Places south Of America Dropped hugely as well it was a massacre of the native People of both continents. The Native Americans Here celebrate today as  Mourning for the dead lost over the deaths of a massacre.

Not quite. They were actually infected with small pox before the pilgrims landed, where the first thanksgiving supposedly took place. There is no evidence to whether they actually had it with the indians, they certainly didnt eat turkey, which was only native to the carolinas and a few other areas. But thanksgiving didnt become a national holiday until 1930s.

First thanksgiving was celebrated with the indians after they showed us how to survive the winter
Then we killed them all with smallpox and took their land

Well, if you want to be historically accurate, the people of Jmaestown were granted permission to live on the land, and in return, threw multiple feasts for the Natives. When the population got too high, the Native Americans would come in and slaughter men, women, and children so the settlers wouldn't encroach too far.

As a reaction, the settlers fought back and caused other settlements with peaceful natives to revolt, forcing European armies to come in and put down the natives, which ultimately caused tensions and littered America with battlefields and growing hostilities between the groups which ultimately lead to Custer's Last Stand, the Trail of Tears, and modern day reservations.

Also, the smallpox thing wasn't a planed attack as so many people falsely believed, Lois Pasteur didn't create germ theory until the late 19th century, people back then believed in miasma theory, which meant that disease was transferred through bad smells. The fact that Natives had never been exposed to smallpox and had no immunity passed along the generations meant that they were more susceptible to it. Despite what the retarded mainstream line of thought tells you, the settlers and Natives actually willfully helped each other most of the time, the Natives taught Europeans how to plant crops and the Europeans gave the Natives technology. It wasn't just a giant hatefest all the time, and the settlers didn't just take from the Natives and refuse to give anything. The Jamestown and all subsequent incidents were few and far between, but still enough to cause major hostilities .

But, if you wanna put sole blame on America, that's ok too.

Not necessarily. I mean, the Mongols beheaded corpses of those inflicted with the plague and flung them into the Mediterranean, thus infecting those who discovered them on the shore. This wasn't the bloody medieval.

The sores that grew on people after they got the bubonic plague smelled, considering they were filled with rancid pus. That's why they threw them.

ACTUALLY, Thanksgiving wasn't about thanking the Natives, the Puritans were thanking their God for helping them survive in the Americas.

Not to be a history dick here but the first "thanksgiving" was celebrated long before the one with the pilgrims. It was usually celebrated in Ireland and was called "the harvest festival" Where they celebrated a good harvest every year and gave their thanks. And even before that greeks gave thanks to their goddess of the harvest. Africans also celebrated a festival we now know as kwanza - it was also a harvest celebration.

Tl;Dr The pilgrims didn't have the first thanksgiving

the harvest festival turned into Halloween in the U.S. when Irish immigrants came over during the potato famine. That may not be completely right but it's at least close.

I understand your point, but if it was called "The Harvest Festival", and not "Thanksgiving", then it wasn't Thanksgiving. Also, I doubt that it was celebrated on the same date.
