Actually, I have been on several rez's. I surveyed for their free housing. Half of the houses had crap everywhere, old cars, washing machines, appliances, random crap strewn all over their yards. At least half on each Rez that I worked on. But your stupid question had, once again, nothing to do with the topic of this thread. Try focusing.

George and Martha Washington enslaved 300 people. Let’s start with their names.

Nice read.

Is that on topic ?

This continent was already occupied before white men "discovered it".

Funny how you can't even answer or respond to previous posts, you switch with new comments. Does this not confuse you to no end?

Ok, sure, how about the fact that "those who were here before" typically enslaved raped, and tortured each other as a matter of course.... no, it's politically incorrect to ask who made scalping, stealing other clans women for forced rape, and raiding parties. That was the human condition for all of pre to recent history.

It has only been the advent of bountiful energy that humans have been able to utilize that has eliminated the proclivity of the human to clanism and brigandage. Only the recent global availability of usable energy to produce what a civilization needs has eliminated the need for wars and raids of conquest and the fighting for limited resources. Take away the human feeling of satisfaction, either through actual death of resources, or the removal of peace and satisfaction in the general population through manipulated media and evil leaders, and wars will rise in a newborn renaissance.

The enforced minor hardships of Covid (relative to other troubled times in human history) has opened the human spirit of clannism, and the drive for conquest of resources, be that actual physical well being or mental desire to join a movement that promises if you tout their ideology, you will be awarded material and mental support to make life easier.

Pick and choose those who you will give a pass to, and extra "rights" to those who espouse your ideology of the day.......at the expense of innocents who had nothing to do with the past evils of the human condition. All these new movements are just a boiling up of a new clan-ism, and desire for authoritarianism/facism. Just more of the same of the ever repeating desire to control what others think.

"Woke" is a word that reveals a lot about those who claim it as theirs. Look at their actions, and how they treat those that live lives of self responsibility and hold themselves accountable for their own lifes choices, and learn from that process to become closer to what true humanity has the potential to achieve. As an artist, I see things in a different light than others, and that, coupled with my past endeavors, has revealed a lot about who I was at a younger age that I have striven to purify and condence into what is, for me, striving to be an honorable and just person. The first thing I gave up was the idea that anyone else was responsible for how I lived my own life, my decisions have impact on all those I come in contact with.

Gee, Greenwood LeFlore had 400 according to the Library of Congress. I don't see the hospital named after him being pillaged or destroyed.

Heck, as kids we'd shoot each other with pistol BB guns. Just not in the face. Agreed, fun with cans or squirrels only if your going to eat it. Never have tasted squirrel yet, hope I don't need to.

Are you stereotyping woodchucks now? Kinda presumptuous to think a woodchuck would chuck wood, even if it could or should...
