Thanksgiving Is Cultural Appropriation!

WARNING: TRIGGERS AHEAD!

Posted on

Thanksgiving is the time of year to share... NOT STEAL! Our anglo-saxon ancestors didn't discover a whole new land to allow other races and nationalities to appropriate our white, Christian culture. Here is how Thanksgiving is CULTURAL APPROPRIATION!

We're a Culture, Not a Costume

Turkeys are indigenous to America. So if you're not indigenous to America, you're appropriating culture.

Black Friday? Ugh. Excuse me. Do you mean AFRICAN AMERICAN Friday? This is 2015 not 1915!

Not Just America Celebrates Thanksgiving

There's No Such Thing As A Harvest Anymore!

Grocery stores appropriate the idea of a "harvest festival." You're not harvesting anything by buying corn in a can! If anything you're supporting Monsanto. DO YOU LIKE GMOs? DO YOU WANT YOUR KIDS TO HAVE AUTISM?

Are You a Puritan? Or a Native American?

No! Then you shouldn't be celebrating Thanksgiving. We know there weren't any arabs, blacks, hispanics or asians on the Mayflower... SO DON'T APPROPRIATE OUR WHITE CULTURE!
