Watch: College Students Now Think Thanksgiving Is a ‘Racist’ Holiday



When a holiday outright has the words “thanks” and “giving” in its name, you know that some liberals are going to take offense.
One university is crying racism about the celebration and taking down the holiday with its “Thanks But No Thanks-giving: Decolonizing an American Holiday” event.
The announcement of the University of Oregon’s student-run event called Thanksgiving a “celebration” of “ongoing genocide” and said the alternative event would help people with raising their “critical consciousness and identifying ways to decolonize the holiday.”
The school’s event description reads, “The main messages are that of gratitude, food, and family; however, Thanksgiving is, foundationally speaking, a celebration of the ongoing genocide against native peoples and cultures across the globe.”
It’s too bad these Oregon students weren’t at the first Thanksgiving to help the native Americans “decolonize” their celebrations.
Campus Reform, which describes itself as a “watchdog to the nation’s higher education system,” sent correspondent Josiah Tejada to ask students whether they believe Thanksgiving is racist or celebrates genocide.
“Honestly, like, I’m not super educated on the topic, but I just know that it has to do with the way the settlers treated the natives who lived here,” one student told him.
“There’s definitely a racist history to Thanksgiving, and that should probably definitely be addressed more in education,” another said.
Another student said Thanksgiving was “racist” because “we’re celebrating taking away land from natives.”
I’m not sure exactly how her Thanksgivings go down, but I for one have never taken part in any “taking away land” Thanksgiving day celebrations.
“It doesn’t have to be not celebrated, but if we can change it to instead of feeding ourselves maybe feeding the natives or donating to natives. Do we really need a giant feast?” she continued.
“The whole concept with, like, taking land and assigning a value to it through cost is, like, it was different through European cultures,” another student told Campus Reform.
One student seemed to have learned about the native Americans’ part in Thanksgiving, saying, “Growing up in school they routinely talked about the contributions that native Americans had toward the first Thanksgiving and the reason why we even celebrate it to begin with, so if you want to make that a bigger portion of it, that makes sense.”
It may be hard for some liberal students, who are known for feeling entitled to everything, to wrap their heads around the concept of gratitude. This may explain their pushback against Thanksgiving.
However, one thing all the students had in common is that they are all living in America. If that’s not something to give thanks for, then I don’t know what is.

  1. In the first place, it is absurd to call it racist - yet another common word turned into a cliche. In the second place, why do Americans have Thanksgiving only one month before Christmas? Wouldn't it be better to celebrate it the second week in October, like they do in Canada? It's right at the end of harvest, so food is fresher; it's warmer in October and the scenery is beautiful with the changing leaves.

  2. Look how good Psychiatry is at brainwashing people with absurdities. Just a fine line between psychiatry and religion. What kind of lunatic would find an issue with turkey, stuffing and football?

  3. Disagree with the author that living in America is something to be thankful for. America has become the new Soviet Union, waging war on the innocents to steal their oil, while implementing draconian controls on the American people. America needs regime change and that would be something to be thankful for. Smart Americans are getting out before the next false flag.

  4. Like Wawah-zowah, and I say this with great compassion and concern, this generation of college youngstahz is probably the dumbest, most naive, ignorant brainwashed generation in the history of Western college students, yet they still attempt to sound cogent, rational, and compassionately understanding. May the Great Spirit still bless these little kiddies, for they know pretty much next to nothing, or what they do. Nevertheless, in their total historical ignorance, not even a single one recognizes their complete LIBERAL HYPOCRISY in not crying a single tear for, nor protesting a single word against, the massive century-long injustices and CALCULATED, SLOW-BURN, REAL GENOCIDE brought upon the INDIGENOUS people of PALESTINE by the super wealthy 20th century Zionist funders of their bull-crap universities. It’s all about 17th century evil white Protestant pilgrims and 19th century white cowboys and white cavalry taking away the lands of the indigenous American, and never about the 20th century, multi-billion dollar U.S. support for white Eastern Europeans, whose ancestors converted to Judaism in the late 8th century A. D., taking away by vicious militant terrorism and genocidal force the ancient ancestral lands of the indigenous and real Semitic people of Palestine! That is an ongoing horrific history that these poor manipulated idiot children are not taught, nor are they allowed to even understand, for it would seriously affect their being able to be mentally and socially controlled by the very people who are in the process (right now) of GENOCIDING the Semitic people of the Near and Middle East with dumb-ass American taxpayer funds. If Americans only knew…but they don’t, and that’s the whole fucking point of manipulative MSM propaganda brainwashing – It is called TV “programming” for very good reasons, kids…
